34. Modifications to the general rules

(1) Where the Rule 30 procedure is followed —
(a) the defendant is not required to file a defence, and therefore Part 6 of these Rules (Defence and Reply) does not apply;
(b) any time limit in these Rules or a relevant practice direction which prevents the parties from taking a step before a defence is filed does not apply; and
(c) the claimant may not obtain judgment by request on an admission and, therefore, Rule 42 does not apply.
