The Justice Committee of MP’s is holding an enquiry into the effects of the introduction and levels of Court fees and charges, in particular the Employment Tribunal fees. This review is distinct from the Ministry of Justice’s review. It has a particular focus on whether the introduction of fees has affected access to justice. The Committee is gathering evidence from external bodies, including Court or Tribunal muses.
The Ministry of Justice review is a more internal view. Time will tell as to what the results of the enquiry and internal review are, and whether this will mean any changes in the system.
