Schedule 2 - Criminal legal aid: motor vehicle orders
Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders bill
Jonathan Djanogly (Parliamentary Under Secretary of State (HM Courts Service and Legal Aid), Justice; Huntingdon, Conservative)
The amendments relate to motor vehicle orders. Schedule 2 enables regulations to authorise the court to make a motor vehicle order as a form of enforcement action in relation to sums payable for criminal legal aid that have not been paid. Amendment 42 makes the language in paragraph 4 of schedule 2 consistent with paragraph 2(1) of the same schedule by referring to the person to whom an amount is due for the provision of criminal legal aid services, rather than the person to whom the amount is payable. Amendment 43 clarifies paragraph 5 of schedule 2. Charges in relation to motor vehicles will arise only in connection with legal aid under motor vehicle order regulations. We propose to amend paragraph 5 of schedule 2 for the first of those regulations, rather than regulations generally under clause 23.
