Oliver Letwin MP, West Dorset voted in favour of a presumption that interveners in judicial review cases will be required to pay any costs incurred by other parties as a result of their intervention.

The majority of MPs in favour of a presumption that interveners in judicial review cases will be required to pay any costs incurred by other parties as a result of their intervention.

Interveners are not parties to the case, but they can put additional information and perspectives before the court. During the debate it was said[2]:

  • The role of interveners is most often to assist the court, and the most frequent interveners are organisations such as Liberty and Justice, whose expertise has proven invaluable in many cases

MPs were considering the Criminal Justice and Courts Bill. The motion rejected by the majority of MPs in this vote was:

  • Amendment proposed: 35, page 58, line 2, leave out clause 58

Clause 58[3] required the court to order an intervener to pay any costs the court considers have been incurred result of the intervener’s involvement in the proceedings.
