Joint Parliamentary Committee on Human Rights (JCHR)

The JCHR is holding an inquiry into the legal aid reforms. The details can be accessed at—call-for-evidence/
The deadline for submissions is September 27th.
Mr Grayling has declined to hold back from proceeding with his legal aid reforms until the JCHR has reported. Despite this, a strong report from the JCHR may be very important in what may be inevitable future challenges to the catastrophic legal aid changes. Attached to this article is the submission CLP have made to the JCHR.

On the 27 September 2013 we made a further submission of evidence to this Inquiry – see attached:
