Volume 459: debated on Monday 30 April 2007

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Constitutional Affairs when she expects to reply to the letter from the hon. Member for Castle Point of 30 March on Mrs. Wendy Gillespie. (134366)

My Department has no record of receiving your letter of 30 March. However, my officials are preparing a response to your earlier related letter of 6 March. I apologise for the delay.

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Constitutional Affairs pursuant to the answer of 27 November 2006, Official Report, column 342W, on the community legal service, when she expects to provide a substantive reply to the Question; and what the reason is for the delay. (134367)

My reply to the hon. Member on 27 November 2006, Official Report, column 342W, referred him to the list of highest paid barristers receiving fees out of the Community Legal Service during 2004-05. These were the latest figures available at the time the hon. Member tabled his question.

Equivalent information for 2005-06 has now been verified with the barristers concerned and this will appear on my Department’s website shortly. I will notify the hon. Member once it has been made available.
