The following caveats to the data should be noted:

· For 2010 to March 2011 data includes Scotland and Wales Offices. From April 2011 onwards these Offices are excluded.

· Legal Aid Agency was created on 1 April 2013 therefore any secondments from the Legal Services Commission cease to be secondments and become loans from that date.

· Data on secondment sources that are incomplete are shown as an unknown entry. We are unable to verify if these are actual secondments and they could possible be loans.

· Below are the numbers of unknown entries:
