Our Steve White issues detailed reasons in relation to each of his decisions which set out the submissions of the parties, which evidence and submissions he accepts and which evidence and submissions he does not accept and the reasons for same.
Accordingly, he seeks to avoid, to the extent possible, the problems which have been illustrated by these cases.
“All that is necessary is that the arbitrators should set out what, on their view of the evidence, did or did not happen and should explain succinctly why, in the light of what happened, they have reached their decision and what that decision is. This is all that is meant by a 'reasoned award' [in s 1(6) of the 1979 UK Act].”20)
