In most cases, a party will only be required to give standard disclosure. An order requiring a party to give ‘disclosure’ means that the party is required to give standard disclosure only unless the court expressly orders otherwise (r 31.5(1) and PD 31, para 1.1). Therefore, although where disclosure is ordered, it is usually standard disclosure, the court has the power to make a more extensive order for disclosure than standard disclosure if required, but it must expressly do so.
