The Spending Round settlement for CPS for 2020-21 included £80m of additional funding.

This additional funding will enable the CPS to:

  • Meet the increased demand pressures following the government’s investment in additional police resource

  • Deliver improved performance in meeting statutory disclosure obligations and

  • Fund any recommended changes arising from the current review of Bar fees
