What does Halsbury's say?

"Statements of case and other documents drafted by a legal representative must bear his or her signature and if they are drafted by a legal representative as a member or employee of a firm they must be signed in the name of the firm.

Every document prepared by a party for filing or use at the Court must:

(1) unless the nature of the document renders it impracticable, be on A4 paper of durable quality having a margin not less than 3.5 centimetres wide;

(2) be fully legible and, normally, typed;

(3) where possible be bound securely in a manner which would not hamper filing or otherwise each page must be indorsed with the case number;

(4) have the pages numbered consecutively;

(5) be divided into numbered paragraphs;

(6) have all numbers, including dates, expressed as figures; and

(7) give in the margin the reference of every document mentioned that has already been filed.

A document which is a copy produced by a colour photostat machine or other similar device may be filed at the Court office provided that the coloured date seal of the Court is not reproduced on the copy."
