Interpreter’s fee may be allowed under CPR 45.29I(h)

  • FOIL

Where, in a case to which Section IIIA of the fixed costs regime in CPR Part 45 applies, a claimant reasonably requires and retains the services of an independent interpreter at trial, may the interpreter's reasonable fees be recovered as a disbursement falling within CPR 45.29I(h) ["sub-paragraph (h)"]? Although this issue is time limited and, as things stand, will not arise in proceedings issued on or after 1st October 2023 (or in the case of personal injury, new claims after that date), the issue is important both for claimants who need the services of an interpreter in order to participate fully in a trial or other hearing of a claim issued before that date, and for defendants in such cases.
