Then there is the pay up ...or we have your passport and drivers licence off you in the pipeline ...I am happy to see non paying fathers stump up for their kids and the governement go to great lengthts to recover maintenence ....But the proposal giving agencies the right to pull your passport and / or drivers licence if they believe you owe them money I am not happy about ....What will that spread to....late paying your income taxes ....instead of £100 penalty for a late submission of return you lose your passport !

More partial reporting.

Civil courts have always been required to recover their operating costs from users.

There is currently a public consultation as to how these charges should evolve in the coming years.

http://www.justice.gov.uk/docs/civil-court-fees-2008-consultation-paper-cp31-08.pdf     If you really want to get involved.

The message is the user pays.

An consequence of the Post-Thacher drive to "efficiency" in  the delivery of public services, has been the increased use of cost accounting / allocation.

W-hat were previously just seem as unavoidable costs are now more accurately allocated to cost centre. As well as identifying opportunities for cost saving, this also high-lights areas where charges should be increased (Passports, court fees,  charity water bills) or even where services should be withdrawn (Magistrates courts, Post Offices).

So, given the above statement are you saying that costs have recently increased to the tune of 233%

"Charges are to rise by up to 233 per cent for debt proceedings from next May,

affecting hundreds of thousands of people who plunge into the red."

or that the courts haven't been keeping up with the requirements.

Partly not keeping up with requirement, partly re balancing of costs.

Anyway its reported that the proposals have been dropped, which I think touches on  a more serious criticism of the Government. They establish working parties, expert review, Royal Commissions, and then do something entirely different as soon as their is a whiff of tabloid press "Concern".
