§ The Solicitor-General (Sir Nicholas Lyell)
The maximum limits on expenses and compensation for loss of earnings reimbursed to jurors and witnesses are reviewed annually in accordance with Treasury guidelines. The maximum compensation for loss of earnings was increased from £25.40 to £27.50 per day in October 1987 for witnesses and in November 1987 for jurors. The levels of other expenses, including, for example, subsistence payments, were also increased at various times during 1987.
§ The Solicitor-General
No distinction is made between those who are employed and those who are self-employed. Increases are made by reference to increases in national average earnings.
