Proceedings prescribed under regulation 4(3)(b) from time to time, currently proceedings under sections 22, 22ZA (1)(A), 27(1)(a), 28 and 150(8) of the 1995 Act, form part of the “proceedings” for which the prescribed fixed payments are chargeable.

In the event that a separate complaint is served in respect of any of these matters in the context of any substantive summary proceedings where relevant summary criminal legal aid or ABWOR is (or becomes) available, it shall be subsumed within the core fixed payment or case disposal fee. Your client is not entitled to separate ABWOR or to apply for a further summary criminal legal aid certificate.

This is in contra-distinction to proceedings under sections 22ZA (1)(b), 22ZB or 27(1)(b) of the 1995 Act for which a half-fee is payable.
