The transcription costs mentioned in the Justice Gap article are phenomal, at over £80,000 – how does this relate to the work involved? Surely anyone involved in the trial should have the right to a transcript and/or recording free of charge if they need to rely on it.

How come one agency has a monopoly on transcripts for certain areas?
