HC Deb 23 April 2001 vol 367 c159W
Sandra Gidley

To ask the Parliamentary Secretary, Lord Chancellor's Department when the Family Graduated Fees Scheme will be reviewed; and what form it will take. [157967]

Jane Kennedy

The Lord Chancellor has agreed to an overall review of the Family Graduated Fees Scheme after a fixed period of operation. It is intended that the review will take place 12 to 18 months after implementation, to allow sufficient time for data collection. It will assess the impact of the scheme and will include a review of the level of rates paid within the scheme, on a cost per case basis, to determine the actual percentage reduction in fees.
