The Chairman of the CJC costs committee has announced that the committee has completed its recommendations for new Guideline Hourly Rates (GHR) and has submitted a report to the Master of the Rolls, Lord Dyson. These recommendations followed a survey which asked for feedback from practitioners on the use and impact of GHR. In response, Lord Dyson has said that he will complete his review of the recommendations as soon as possible and announce a date on which his decision will be published.
The GHR used to be set by the Master of the Rolls, but, on 31 October 2012, the Government announced that this role would be transferred to the Civil Justice Council from January 2013. The CJC set up a costs committee to do this, which is now a standing committee and is likely to be asked to look at other costs issues as well.
