A written answer in the House of Commons has revealed that, in the period from 29 July to 31 December 2013, 2,500 written applications for fee remission were received. Out of these, 600 were granted in full or part and the rest were rejected. It is being reported that this means that remission was granted in only 5.5% of the claims issued in that period, whereas the Ministry of Justice predicted when fees were introduced that 31% of claimants would be eligible for remission of fees. These statistics will improve the chances of any further judicial review of tribunal fees being successful.
