Alongside other immigration sets, the Garden Court Chambers Immigration Team has carefully considered the circumstances in which we can assist solicitors in complying with directions in publicly funded FTT appeals. We join with other chambers across the country in adopting this position: 

"Other than in exceptional circumstances, each member of the immigration team of the chambers listed below will not accept instructions under the 'Reform Procedure' to prepare an 'Appeal Skeleton Argument', unless specific provision is made for that work to be adequately remunerated."

For further detail on the reasons and background to the statement, you can view ILPA’s own statement on the new fixed fee here, the Bar Council’s statement here and the Law Society’s statement here.
