The regulations spell out the conditions under which the LSC must publish its proposals. Clause 16 goes into more detail and clause 10, which we have already considered, gives further clarification on the directions that a Secretary of State might need to give if the LSC was to make a decision that could be described as unreasonable or flawed in some way. The Secretary of State will still have the ability to intervene if he judges that a decision falls into one of those categories. We have considered already clauses that will  give the Secretary of State the opportunity to intervene when those rare circumstances occur.
