03 July 2013

The Justice Committee takes evidence on Wednesday 3 July 2013.

The Committee held an evidence session on 11 June 2013 with organisations representing lawyers and others on the proposals for price competitive tendering of criminal legal aid provision contained in the Government’s consultation paper.

The Committee has received a substantial number of written representations on the multiple proposals relating to criminal and civil legal aid contained in the Government’s consultation paper and, because of the tight timetable the Government has set out for its decision-making, the Committee is not issuing a general invitation for  further submissions to be made to it, although any individual or organisation wishing to convey further information or views to the Committee on the subject may do so.
