The criminal courts charge is to be scrapped from 24 December, Justice Secretary Michael Gove has announced.

 

Since April, convicted criminals in England and Wales have had to pay a charge of between £150 and £1,200 towards the cost of their case.

 

MPs had called for it to be axed and the Magistrates Association said the decision was "tremendously welcome".

 

The charge is paid on top of fines, compensation orders and defendants' own legal charges, and is higher for those convicted after pleading not guilty.
