Britain's justice department said on Thursday that criminal barristers had agreed to vote on ending strike action after they were offered further reforms and a rise in legal aid fees.

The new package would mean a further 54 million pound investment, the Ministry of Justice said, adding that a planned 15% fee rise for criminal barristers would now apply to the vast majority of cases currently in the Crown Court.
