Government still has £31m of tribunal fees to refund

The government has revealed that it still has £31 million to refund following the full roll-out of its scheme for refunding tribunal fees. Justice Minister Dominic Raab said the government had received 4,689 applications, with 2,600 receiving approval.


Rabb said the refund scheme was expected to be more expensive than previously estimated, costing around £35 million (£2 million more than earlier estimates). He said that claimants who were deterred from bringing claims because of tribunal fees would be able to bring a claim out of time and reassured applicants that the government would work closely with Citizens Advice Bureaux to identify and contact all eligible claimants.
