29 January 2016

The Secretary for State for Justice has done a U-turn on the pricing model for criminal legal aid work.

Against a background of cost savings elsewhere in the Justice department and faced with 99 legal challenges against the dual pricing model and Judicial review challenging last July’s 8.75% cut to legal aid fees for criminal work Mr Gove has decided not to go ahead with the dual pricing contract and to suspend the 8.75% cut in legal fees until April 2017.
