111   Application by client for assessment of practitioner/client or agent/client costs
(1)  A client who is given a bill of costs may apply to the Registrar for an assessment of the whole of, or any part of, so much of those costs as are payable on a practitioner and client basis or an agent and client basis.
(2)  An application relating to a bill of costs may be made even if the costs have been wholly or partly paid.
(3)  If any costs have been paid without a bill of costs, the client may nevertheless apply for an assessment. For that purpose the request for payment by the legal practitioner or agent is taken to be the bill of costs.
 Section 343 (1) of the 1998 Act provides that the legal representative or agent of a person in respect of a claim for compensation made or to be made by the person is not entitled to recover from the person any costs in respect of the claim unless those costs are awarded by the Commission.
