An order for costs to which s26 of the Act applies may specify the amount of full costs and may specify the amount payable by the legally aided party. Where appropriate a request may be made to the District Judge or Costs Judge of the relevant court to determine:
(i) the amount of full costs;
(ii) the amount payable by the legally aided party;
(iii) the amount payable by the Lord Chancellor.
The procedures for determining the liability of a legally aided party under a s26(1) costs order and for obtaining a costs order against the Lord Chancellor are set out at paragraphs 9 to 20 of the Regulations which are briefly summarised below.
