MOJ consult on Draft Regulations: Criminal Defence Service (Funding) (Amendment No.2) Order 2007

PUBLISHED October 23, 2007

The Government announced in The Way Ahead in November 2006 that it intended to implement Lord Carter?s proposal to introduce a graduated fee scheme for litigators in the Crown Court.  The Legal Services Commission consulted on detailed proposals and have recently published a response to that consultation exercise.  The Ministry and the Legal Services Commission have now written to the Law Society to consult on their proposed Funding Order changes.


Any comments on this should be passed to Jim Meyer.
