The Ministry of Justice conducted a review of the court fees charged to individuals and businesses in the civil and family court. We wanted to seek input from the public through a consultation, and wanted to ensure that they had all the relevant evidence and data to hand to inform their responses. We took an ambitious approach in being as open as possible with the public in sharing evidence and data in order to come up with the best new system possible, and we think it worked.
