In line with the practice of previous administrations, I propose to issue a public consultation document on fees in the Supreme and Sheriff Courts. Amongst other matters, I will seek views on the case for exemptions from fees for individuals on state benefits. Following the consultation, I would expect to bring proposals before the Parliament for approval later in the year.
