Pubs code adjudicator Paul Newby has revealed that he has now made a total of 25 arbitrations since the pubs code came into force last year.

The number of judgments has increased fivefold over the past month, as previous figures​ released in March showed that Newby had made five arbitrations since the pubs code came into force in June.

Newby said that he felt this showed “good progress” was being made as cases moved through the arbitration process.

“We currently have 97 cases at different stages within the arbitration process. The timetable for resolving cases is largely in the hands of the parties to the dispute but my team and I are making all efforts to ensure the process moves forward as quickly as possible,” he said.

The subjects that have been arbitrated on have not been revealed, neither have the parties or pubcos involved. However, Newby has said that he is hoping to, in the future, identify general principles on code enforcement if this can be done without breaking confidentiality agreements.
