Just Following Orders?

Lightning has struck twice. To be clear this is another “refusal of 100% enhancement” decision immediately overturned, without a word spoken in anger, at a CC. This time there was only one wasted journey (our cleint), but nonetheless, for him, this represents an afternoon lost to fee earning whilst regaining costs he was clearly entitled too all along.
I wonder if someone directed – “allow no uplifts and leave it to Costs Committees to decide” and LSC caseworkers are just following orders?. I think we should be told.
Who was it suggested the introduction of some cost (or other more draconian) risk for the LSC to stop this nonsense? Oh it was me.
