Liberty welcomes Government's rethink on Immigration Tribunal fee increases and calls for end of assault on access to justice

25 November 2016

Today the Government decided to pause for thought on its 500 per cent increase to Immigration Tribunal feesMartha Spurrier, Director of Liberty, said:

“This astronomical hike in tribunal fees was the latest divisive measure from a Government determined to ration justice on the grounds of nationality. It left people unable to right serious state wrongs or challenge notoriously poor quality Home Office decisions.

“The Government’s rethink is welcome – but it must now end this all-out assault on access to justice.”
