  • I've never really seen the sense in a Costs Council separate from the CJC. Costs is an important topic and it impacts on most of the CJCs remit. The concern should be with whether the work that needs doing on these issues is properly resourced and scrutinised.

  • Your reporting of the divergence between the Government and the Judiciary is not telling the real story about costs. Neuberger had uttered in the right direction but even he would not meet the requirements of universal justice which is what the English law marketers and court bureaucracies have been suffocating for centuries.
    All the assumptions about the judiciary being unbiased must be thrown away. The same must happen to licensed lawyers being fit for purpose in the context of the need for a just judicial and legal system.
