Post Office’s legal costs and reporting intervals to BEIS/UKGI

This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

Dear Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy,

During its High Court Horizon Litigation, Judge Fraser originally asked POL to report its legal costs to the Court at £250k intervals, but POL costs rose so rapidly he had to adjust the reporting interval to £500k:

At what intervals was it decided that POL would report its legal costs to BEIS/UKGI and was this reporting interval ever adjusted to accommodate the high rate of expenditure?
Yours faithfully,

Eleanor Shaikh
