Litigation practitioners getting to grips with the CPR changes coming into force in April 2014 also need to be aware that many of the court fees are being increased.
These increases come into effect on 22 April 2014 (The Civil Proceedings Fees (Amendment) Order 2014, SI 2014/874) with substantial amends to the current Court Fees Schedule.
In December 2013, the Ministry of Justice opened a consultation on court fees, seeking views on its proposals to recover close to the full costs of the civil court system through fee increases. The consultation which closed on 21 January 2014 attracted 162 responses. In the ministerial foreword to its response to the consultation, Shailesh Vara, Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Ministry of Justice, acknowledged that 'many of the respondents to the consultation did not agree with [the] proposals for reform', however, 'we must press ahead'.
See the Ministry of Justice’s “Court Fees: Proposals for reform – Part one consultation response: Cost Recovery” for further details.
