Carter Legal Aid Inquiry

The House of Commons Constitutional Affairs Committee (Committee) launched an inquiry into the implementation of the Carter Review of Legal Aid on 25 July 2006. The proposals for different means of procurement have proved controversial and the Committee will consider their likely impact on the justice system.

The inquiry's terms of reference are:

  • To consider the impact on the justice system of the proposed changes envisaged in the Carter Review;
  • To assess whether the proposed changes would have a disproportionate effect on certain types of providers;
  • To examine how proposals to pay lawyers fixed fees would impact on provision.

Submissions are invited from relevant interested parties, which should be sent to the Clerk of the Committee by Monday 2 October 2006.
