Leveson publishes costs to date: £625k to barristers from £2m total
The Leveson Inquiry has spent more than half a million pounds of taxpayers' money on barristers since the public inquiry into press regulation launched six months ago. The bulk of the legal fees (£536,100) spent between July 2011 and 31 January 2012 have gone to the core counsel on the inquiry - 39 Essex Street's Robert Jay QC, Temple Garden Chambers' David Barr and Carine Patry Hoskins of Landmark Chambers.
