" Court fee increases that were hastily introduced to plug a £100m hole in the Ministry of Justice’s budget were based on “hopeless” evidence, according to the most senior civil judge in England and Wales."

 

“Enhanced fees” are designed to make a profit, charging claimants more than the administrative cost of the service.

 

“The users of the civil courts are subisdising the family courts and criminal courts,” Lord Dyson said on Tuesday. “I think it’s wrong in principle … but it’s a policy matter as to whether parliament should go down that route.

“It is, I’m afraid, why the risk of denying access to justice for a lot of people is so intense in these proposals.”

 

People in small enterprises and business would be deterred from litigation, Dyson said.

 

Fee increases “won’t deter rich people but small businesses. With the type of people this government said it wanted to encourage because they will be the engine for [economic] growth, many of them are most at risk.”

It might put off DCA's issuing so many claims. Many people who pay the CCJ's may only pay small affordable amounts and it may take ages to even get their fees back. Then there are those debtors who don't pay the CCJ's. Companies like Lowells must be paying millions in court fees.
