I have had an email from a colleague who assures me that the following is genuine:-
To achieve a viable catering service, it has been necessary to increase food tariffs within all MoJ sites. Tariff increases will come into effect from Monday 18th June 2012. Main restaurant areas serving food to the general public and HMCTS staff will incur a cost increase of 9.2%, juror restaurants 3.5%, and food delivered to judicial dining rooms will incur a 4.2 % increase.
It's nice to know that judges, who mostly pull down north of £130,000 a year, have been hit with less than half of the increase faced by the lesser orders who toil in the Ministry.
