Garden Court North Chambers’ Immigration Team responds to tribunal fees consultation

17 June 2016

Garden Court North Chambers’ Immigration Team has published their response to the Ministry of Justices’ Consultation on Tribunal Fees in the First-tier Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber) and the Upper Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chambers).

The consultation is available to read here. The government proposes to charge fees in these tribunals “at full cost recovery levels” by increasing the fees charged in the First-tier Tribunal and introducing fees for permission to appeal applications and for appeals heard in the Upper Tribunal.

The Team’s consultation response states that: “In and of itself, the sheer scale of increase raises serious questions over whether access to the IAC is being unjustifiably denied to those who simply cannot afford such exorbitant fees” and that “the proposed fee increases are incompatible with access to justice and the rule of law”.
