Orders in relation to specific questions

             (1)  A party may apply for an order:

                     (a)  that a party comply with rule 13.27 and answer, or further answer, a specific question served on the party under rule 13.26;

                     (b)  determining the extent to which a question must be answered;

                     (c)  requiring a party to state specific grounds of objection;

                     (d)  determining the validity of an objection; or

                     (e)  that a party who has not answered, or who has given an insufficient answer, to a specific question be required to attend court to be examined.

             (2)  In considering whether to make an order under subrule (1), the court may take into account whether:

                     (a)  the requesting party is unlikely, at the trial, to have another reasonably simple and inexpensive way of proving the matter sought to be obtained by the specific questions;

                     (b)  answering the questions will cause unacceptable delay or undue expense; and

                     (c)  the specific questions are relevant to an issue in the case.
