This instrument amends Schedule 2 to the Criminal Legal Aid (Remuneration) Regulations 2013 (S.I. 2013/435) (the “Remuneration Regulations”). The Remuneration Regulations provide for the remuneration of advice, assistance and representation made available under sections 13, 15 and 16 of the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act 2012 (c. 10) (“LASPO”). Schedule 2 contains the Litigators’ Graduated Fee Scheme, which governs the fees payable to providers of criminal litigation services in the Crown Court that are made available to an individual in criminal proceedings as a result of a determination under section 16 of LASPO that the individual is eligible for legal aid.
