COVID-19: CBA Announcement on CPS Fees / Faster Payments – 30.03.20

Please find linked a letter from Rebecca Lawrence, Chief Executive of the Crown Prosecution Service and an annex setting out how the scheme will operate.

This is unprecedented and will go a long way to helping the junior bar in the coming months as we all battle with COVID-19.

We are extremely appreciative of the time that has gone in to ensure that faster payments can be made and we recognise that this is an incredibly supportive and much need gesture to ensure the longevity of the bar at this time. We are all striving for sustainability and this is the first step on what will be a long and  not easy road.

I link the letter from Rebecca Lawrence, so that you can read it in full and you will find the Annex linked here..

Please take the opportunity to read this as it will make a difference.

We are still working with the LAA and we look forward to sharing some news with you later in the week.

Stay safe
