Action against Medical Accidents

Volume 448: debated on Tuesday 11 July 2006

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Constitutional Affairs what fees were paid in the last year to Action against Medical Accidents (AvMA); what services were provided by AvMA in respect of such fees; and whether the engagement of AvMA to provide services was the subject of a tendering process. (84586)

During 2005-06, the Legal Services Commission (LSC) paid £529 to AvMA as part of a three year contract with Community Legal Service Direct to review the content of the advice leaflet, ‘Medical Accidents’. The value of the contract fell below the threshold necessary for tendering.
