EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations amend the Criminal Legal Aid (Remuneration) Regulations 2013 (S.I. 2013/435) (“the Remuneration Regulations”).

The Remuneration Regulations make provision for remuneration for advice and assistance made available under sections 13 (advice and assistance for individuals in custody) and 15 (advice and assistance for criminal proceedings) of the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act 2012 (c. 10) (“the Act”). Regulation 8 of those Regulations includes provision that a claim for such remuneration must be made and determined in accordance with the 2017 Standard Crime Contract (the contract between the Lord Chancellor and a person with whom the Lord Chancellor has made an arrangement under section 2(1) of the Act for the provision of advice and assistance made available under sections 13 and 15 of the Act), and paid in accordance with the rates set out in Schedule 4 to those Regulations.

Regulation 2 of these Regulations amends Schedule 4 to the Remuneration Regulations to provide for remuneration rates and an upper limit for advice and assistance for pre-charge engagement work.

A full impact assessment of the effect that this instrument will have on the costs of business, the voluntary sector and the public sector is available from the Legal Aid Policy Team, Access to Justice Directorate, Justice and Courts Policy Group, Ministry of Justice, 102 Petty France, London SW1H 9AJ.

Asesiadau Effaith

Impact Assessments generally accompany all UK Government interventions of a regulatory nature that affect the private sector, civil society organisations and public services. They apply regardless of whether the regulation originates from a domestic or international source and can accompany primary (Acts etc) and secondary legislation (SIs). An Impact Assessment allows those with an interest in the policy area to understand:

  • Why the government is proposing to intervene;
  • The main options the government is considering, and which one is preferred;
  • How and to what extent new policies may impact on them; and,
  • The estimated costs and benefits of proposed measures.
