CBA statement – 28.01.16

Mark Fenhalls QC, Chairman of the Criminal Bar Association, said:

“The CBA applauds the Lord Chancellor’s decision to abandon the Ministry of Justice’s flawed plans to reform the duty contracts for legal aid solicitors. It takes courage to make such decisions. The CBA is wholly committed to working with the Ministry and the solicitors’ profession to build reforms to make sure the public is once more served by an efficient and world class criminal justice system.”
