What does the appointment of Liz Truss as justice secretary mean for the MoJ review of employment tribunal fees?

I’m sorry I haven’t a clue.

Update (19 July): However, with the enforced departure from the MoJ this week of both slow-reading junior injustice minister Shailesh Vara and slightly less junior injustice minister Dominic Raab – who appeared to have taken over responsibility for the much-delayed ET fees review from the hapless Vara in recent weeks – there must be some doubt as to whether we will see the long-awaited review report any day soon. For, if the report recommends reform of the fees regime, then at least someone in the new ministerial team is going to be asked to sign-off on the associated financial hit to the catastrophically cash-strapped Ministry. And, if it doesn’t, someone’s going to want to read themselves in before going out to absorb the inevitable political and media heat.

In the meantime, I remain available to any new minister who’d like to learn how to square this tricky circle by reforming the fees regime on a cost-neutral basis. Unlike those introduced by the Ministry in July 2013, my fees are very reasonable.
