    Interlocs are where a tribunal needs to sit, usually a judge sitting alone, to determine a technical or legal issue which isn’t directly concerned with the issue being appealed. 

    So, for example, in a case where DWP steadfastly refuses to provide appeal papers they may set an interloc to give DWP an opportunity to explain why they should not be excluded from the tribunal hearing.

    Ok thank you mikehughescq for explaining. Hopefully nothing to worry about; just got a piece of paper needing more information by a certain date then passed on that basis but will advise outcome when I get it.
