To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, when he plans to publish the post-implementation review of the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act 2012.
The Government remains committed to publishing the findings of the post-implementation review of the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act 2012 by the end of this year.
The evidence gathering phase of the review concluded at the end of September and we are currently considering the evidence submitted. During the evidence gathering phase we have engaged over 80 individuals and organisations. This process of consideration and engagement with interested parties also represents an opportunity for the Government to consider what the future of legal support should look like.
