asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether the Department for Trade and Industry and its solicitors, Nabarro Nathanson, have lodged any formal complaints with the Law Society against solicitors in the British Coal respiratory disease litigation since 1 January 2004; if so, what is the name of each such solicitor; when each complaint was made; what was the nature of the complaint; and what was the outcome of each complaint.

Complaints to the Law Society are confidential, and it would be inappropriate for me to divulge this information. When individual cases are referred to the department they are considered and, if appropriate, passed to the Law Society.
