At the Resolution annual conference in Manchester on 10 March 2007 Mr Justice Ryder, giving the keynote address, made it clear that the judiciary were firmly in control of new practices and procedures due to be piloted over the next year, culminating in the introduction of the harmonised Family Procedure Rules in April 2008.
