PDS report demand

12 July 2006

The Legal Aid Practitioners Group has written to legal aid Minister Vera Baird QC MP, demanding a date for publication of the finalresearch report into the Public Defender Service (PDS).

Director Richard Miller said: "For many months now, we have been told that the release of the research into the PDS is 'imminent'. It is in the public interest that this report is published immediately so that we can all judge whether the PDS has managed to deliver the value for money and quality that the Government demands from private practice lawyers.”
