Where an employer employed a management contractor under the JCT management contract, 1987 edition, and the management contractor employed a works contractor under an edition of the JCT works contract, the works contractor was not entitled to bring arbitration proceedings against the employer directly. The works contractor was obliged under the terms of the works contract to bring any such proceedings in the name of the management contractor, but the management contractor was not required to consent to the use of its name. It was entitled, by operation of clauses4.27 and 1.11 of the works contract to require, as a pre-condition to such consent, that the works contractor should indemnify or provide a security in respect of any liability it might incur as a result of the works contractor using its name.
