These are requests from counsel for approval of additional time (hours) over the tariff caps on issued certificates. The large number of requested extra hours in the north region are due to major drug conspiracy cases.

The Appeals Committee North dealt with 310 files (including 9 in the category of “Other”) and the Appeals Committee South dealt with 378 items (including 35 in the category of “Other” ).
