STRIKE IT OUT 

Barristers strike to demand 25% rise in fees as doctor walkout fears grow

  • 21:59, 27 Jun 2022

BARRISTERS went on strike yesterday seeking a 25 per cent hike in fees — as doctors threatened a walkout unless they get a 30 per cent rise.

Crown courts in England and Wales all but ground to halt as wigged lawyers protested about the terms of a proposed 15 per cent rise in their fees — insisting on 25 per cent.

Some gathered outside the Old Bailey while a barrister got emotional hearing speeches outside Manchester crown court.

Justice Secretary Dominic Raab said their planned 14 days of strikes will “delay justice”

Courts are already facing a backlog of 58,000 cases.

Doctors claim a 30 per cent pay hike would reverse real-term pay cuts suffered since 2008.
