Government consultation on the law on damages

Government consultation (138 pages, PDF) on the possible implementation of Law Commission recommendations for changes to the law on damages, in particular in the areas of claims for wrongful death; liability for psychiatric illness; damages for personal injury: medical, nursing and other expenses; collateral benefits; and aggravated, exemplary and restitutionary damages.

The paper does not comment specifically on the circumstances in which any kind of special, punitive or disgorgement damages might be available in competition law cases.
