Letter to Kenneth Clarke

Letter from LAG and The Law Society to Kenneth Clarke, May 2011.

LAG and the Law Society continue to have very serious reservations about the government's proposals for changes to legal aid provision in England and Wales.  They have therefore written formally to the Lord Chancellor and Secretary of State for Justice, Kenneth Clarke, to request that the government publishes its proposals to reform legal aid as a draft bill to be scrutinised by a special joint committee of the House of Commons and the House of Lords or the Justice Committee and other select committees with an interest in legal aid and access to justice policy.
