Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Act of Sederunt)

This Act of Sederunt makes amendments to the Table of Fees in Schedule 1 to the Act of Sederunt (Fees of Solicitors in the Sheriff Court) (Amendment and Further Provisions) 1993 (S.I. 1993/3080) (“the Table of Fees”).

Paragraph 2(2) increases the fees recoverable under the Table of Fees by about 4% and makes a minor change to the fee recoverable under item 8(a)(i) in Chapter II of Part II to reflect more accurately the extent of the work required in preparation for a debate.

Paragraph 2(3) amends paragraph 1B of Part II of Chapter II (defended actions commenced on or after 1st January 1994) to allow the Auditor to allow a greater sum under that paragraph for pre-litigation work where he considers that it is justified.

This Act of Sederunt does not apply as respects fees chargeable for work done, or outlays incurred, before it comes into force.
