This note is not part of the regulations, but is intended to indicate their general effect.
These regulations, which come into force on 1 July 2004, amend the Supreme Court Fees Regulations 2003.
Regulation 3 amends regulation 5 of the principal regulations, which relates to the Registrar's power to waive fees. The criteria by which a Registrar determines a fee waiver application are amended so that a person who has been granted legal aid is eligible for a fee waiver.
Previously, a grant of legal aid was not in itself a ground for a fee waiver.
