Criminal legal aid advisory group


Barrister Gary Bell QC is to chair a 18-strong panel ‘advisory panel’, established by the Lord Chancellor Michael Gove, to review the criminal legal aid system and recommend ways to increase its efficiency. Following criticism of its initial ‘Bar-heavy’ composition, more solicitors will be appointed and it expects to submit a report to the Ministry of Justice by September.
