The Chartered Institute of Linguists (CIOL) has responded to Home Office plans to reduce rates of interpreters' pay through the umbrella group PI4J (Professional Interpreters for Justice).

PI4J represents over 2,240 interpreters, and aims to work with government to ensure quality standards of interpreting available to the Justice System and the Public Sector.
