The Ministry of Justice (MoJ) has now given notice that it will press on with 129 fee increases, saying there was a strong justification for the proposals.

The MoJ states that the proposed increases reflect historic inflation and are therefore not an increase in real terms.  The new fees and fee remission thresholds will apply from this autumn, once statutory instruments have been laid.  In civil proceedings, the hearing fee for a multi-track case will be £1,174.
