Justice is not just for the rich: take action

Equal before the law? Government proposes huge court fees increase

The UK government has proposed increasing the fees that need to be paid to appeal an asylum or immigration decision in the First-tier and Upper Tribunal in England and Wales:

The government are consulting on the proposed fee increase.  You can take part in the consultation. 

We acknowledge that consultations can feel like a tick-box exercise, but if we don’t register our concerns about this grave threat to access to justice, it is harder to hold the government to account if they enact the changes.  The consultation is open until 3 June 2016.

Take part in the consultation

Sign the parliamentary petition opposing the court fees increase.  The petition needs to reach 10,000 signatures in order to make the government respond to it (hopefully, by holding a debate on the matter).
