Petition to Save Legal Aid

BLS members will no doubt be looking askance at Government Proposals regarding Legal Aid.

A petition has been launched online by the Justice Alliance asking the Government to reconsider as part of the general opposition to these changes.

BLS Council has endorsed the petition, already signed by Michael Fitton QC of the Western Circuit, and BLS President Ben Tarrant and Law Society Council Member Ian Kelcey urge members to consider adding their name to the signatory list.

The petition is entitled “David Cameron, UK Government: Save legal aid to protect access to justice for all”
