To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answers by Lord Keen of Elie on 28 January (HL12983 and HL12985), whether they intend to publish a report into the provision of legal aid in cases where the individual has absconded; if so, when; and if not, why not.

As we have previously confirmed, the Government is looking carefully at the provision of legal aid in cases where the individual has absconded.

The priority is to ensure the case can be concluded fairly and that victims, witnesses, and the public can see justice being done.
