The Legal Aid Agency’s data is not broken down by constituency, and can only be obtained at disproportionate cost.

A geographic breakdown of completed legal aid work, including legal help matter completions (claims), by region and local authority area based on the location of providers’ offices, is available in the National Statistics on legal aid in England and Wales, published by the Ministry of Justice at https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/legal-aid-statistics-january-to-march-2017
