    Hi @tpotts and a very warm welcome to the community! I personally have not heard of this, although I hope other community members will be able to help! It may also be worth contacting citizens advice about the matter and seeing what they suggest. If you need anything else then please do not hesitate to be in touch :)

    When a judge says they can’t do a statement of reasons there could be any number of explanations for that: 

    1) They have lost or accidental disposed of the record of proceedings.
    2) They have recently ceased to be a judge.
    3) Literally anything.

    Ask for an explanation but it may well be there’s nothing you can do but agree to a further hearing.
