These Regulations may be cited as the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act 2012 (Consequential, Transitional and Saving Provisions) (Amendment) Regulations 2013 and come into force on 1st April 2013.

The Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act 2012 (Consequential, Transitional and Saving Provisions) (Amendment) Regulations 2013 amend the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act 2012 (Consequential, Transitional and Saving Provisions) Regulations 2013 (S.I. 2013/534) ("the 2013 Regulations").

The amendments come into force on the same day that the 2013 Regulations come into force, 1st April 2013.

Regulation 3 makes transitional provision in relation to the application of the Civil Legal Aid (Costs) Regulations 2013 (S.I. 2013/611) in respect of the application of cost protection where a party receives certain funded services under the Access to Justice Act 1999 (c. 22) ("the 1999 Act") and goes on to receive legal aid under the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act 2012 (c. 10) in connection with the same proceedings. In such a case, regulation 3 also makes provision to enable funded services under the 1999 Act to be taken into account for the purpose of determining costs payable by the Lord Chancellor to a non-legally aided party.
