HC Deb 03 December 1973 vol 865 c283W
37. Mr. Iremonger

asked the Attorney-General what is a normal period of delay in taxing the costs payable by unsuccessful defendants ; and what effect that delay has upon legally-aided judgment creditors.

The Attorney-General

No figures are available ; there are wide variations in the period. Delay in taxing the costs may postpone the date when part or all of the proceeds of the judgment can be paid to the creditor, or his contribution can be refunded.
