Over 2019/20 and 2020/21, we will provide total funding of up to £22.4m to Citizens Advice for delivery of the Service. The Service provides pre-trial and on-the-day support, as well as an enhanced service for vulnerable and intimidated victims and witnesses tailored according to need.</p><p> </p><p>There are also a range of special measures available to assist vulnerable and intimidated witnesses (including vulnerable and intimidated victims) to give their best evidence in criminal proceedings.

unstar this property answer text <p>The financial thresholds for civil and criminal legal aid were reviewed by MoJ Ministers in January 2010, March 2011 and March 2016, following advice from officials. Separately, the means test thresholds were reviewed at official level within MoJ in January 2012 and between October 2013 and January 2014.</p><p>The Legal Aid Means Test Review, announced by MoJ in February 2019, will be studying the thresholds for legal aid entitlement, including the effectiveness with which the means testing arrangements appropriately protect access to justice, particularly for the vulnerable. As part of the review process, we will evaluate a wide range of evidence from both within and outside of government, liaising with experts from across the field to explore any improvements to the system.</p><p>Upon conclusion of the review, expected by summer 2020, we will publish a full consultation paper setting out our future policy proposals in this area. We will seek to implement any final recommendations as soon as practicable following public consultation.</p>

star this property question text To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, what estimate he has made of the cost to his Department's budget of the increased number of litigants in person as a result of the means test threshold not being uprated in line with inflation in (a) civil legal aid since 2008 and (b) criminal legal aid since 2009. more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>It is not possible to estimate the cost to the Ministry of Justice of any increase in the number of litigants in person as a direct result of not uprating the legal aid means test thresholds since 2008/2009.</p><p>The Legal Support Action Plan, published in February 2019, confirmed that the Ministry of Justice will undertake a legal aid means test review which will study the thresholds for legal aid entitlement as well as the effectiveness with which the means testing arrangements appropriately protect access to justice, particularly for the vulnerable. Within this review, we will evaluate a wide range of evidence from both within and outside of government, liaising with experts from across the field to explore any improvements to the system.</p><p>The Ministry of Justice has also announced that it is doubling its funding for the Litigants in Person Support Strategy to £3 million per year for the next two years, to ensure that those representing themselves in court can access the support they need.</p>
