The Master of the Rolls has now considered the recommendation from the Advisory Committee on Civil Costs further, and also additional material put to him by the Committee.

On the basis of the evidence available to him, the Master of the Rolls has decided to accept the Committee's recommendation that the 2009 Guideline Hourly Rates should be increased (in line with inflation) by 1.7% for 2010.  The intention is that the increase should take effect from 1 April 2010.
