    Hi Pot80.
    I would contact the CAB and ask them to go over your claim with you.They will have some idea as to what the changes will mean for you.

    When was the Tribunal? If it was recently then no the new changes won't apply to you. If they did they would have awarded you correctly at the Tribunal.

    You will need to ask for the Statement of reasons, from this you'll need to find an error in law in making the decision. This is extremely difficult to do and you will need to find an expert to help you with this.

    as you have no award in payment you can make a new claim straight away
    have a look at the b&w self test
