Murria v Lord Chancellor: QBD 11 Jan 2000

The test, when assessing the rate of pay for legal aid purposes of whether a case ‘related to fraud’ was whether the proceedings, in whole or in part, were about serious or complex fraud, irrespective of the contents of the indictment. There is no general offence known to law of fraud as such and the act could only be intended to relate to such issues in a wider sense than the content of the indictment.
