Post Script

As promised to yesterdays delegates here is confirmation of our interpretation of Table 9 of the Graduated Fee schedules. For those out of the loop this is the table which indicates how much of the fee is payable based on the nature of the case – the example which raised the concern was the 25% figure identified for “retrials”. (How much sadder can a single life become?)
My interpretation, that you will be PAID 25% of the fee as calculated and NOT that the fee will be REDUCED by 25%, is correct. You can see confirmation of this from worked example 5 in Annex G of this June’s initial consultation.
I am reliably informed that the final regulations regarding the LGFS are to be laid later this month.
