The Ministry of Justice is unable to provide the total expenditure in this case. Some issues of costs between the parties are yet to be determined and the Ministry of Justice has yet to receive final bills for legal fees and disbursements. In addition, legal advisers within the Legal Aid Agency do not claim for time spent advising on the defence of individual legal challenges brought against the Director of Legal Aid Casework unless pursuing costs from an opponent.
