Between 9 April and 4 June 2013 the Government consulted on a number of proposals to reform legal aid via the “Transforming Legal Aid: delivering a more credible and efficient system” consultation.

Ministers and I will continue to meet with individuals and organisations from across the legal professions in relation to our “Transforming Legal Aid” policy proposals.

The consultation received around 16,000 responses which officials are currently analysing. We will carefully consider all responses before final decisions are taken and the Government response is published in the autumn.
