UIN HL5129, tabled on 26 January 2023

To ask His Majesty's Government what plans they have to review the fees set down in (1) the Commissioner for Oaths (Authorised Persons) Fees Order 1993, and (2) the Removal, Storage and Disposal of Vehicles (Prescribed Sums and Charges) Regulations 2008.

  1. We do not currently have any plans to review the fees set down in the Commissioners for Oaths (Authorised Persons) Fees Order 1993.

  1. On 10 January 2023, the Government published the response to its Review of the Statutory Charges which the police can levy when they have exercised their vehicle recovery powers. We will be introducing an increase of 28% to ensure that the vehicle recovery industry can continue to operate sustainably. This consultation did not cover the way in which the police use their power to order vehicle removal, or the operation of recovery schemes and contracts. These are operational matters for the police and National Highways.
