Criminal Courts Charge – petition for review now

S.55 of the Criminal Justice and Courts Act 2015 requires the Lord Chancellor to carry out a review of the operation of the criminal courts charge 3 years after it came into force so that no review will occur until 13 April 2018. Amending s.55 will permit the Lord Chancellor to carry out that review now, avoiding the problems identified in this blog from Kingsley Napley.
