Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations amend the Criminal Legal Aid (Scotland) (Fees) Regulations 1989 so that the outlays which may be paid to a solicitor by the Scottish Legal Aid Board (“the Board”) in respect of fees paid to witnesses (who are not Crown witnesses) shall not be restricted to the amount payable by the Crown for witnesses of the same category. Instead, the Board shall pay such fees as it considers to be reasonable, having regard to the amount payable to Crown witnesses (regulation 3).
