Legal Services Commission

Volume 487: debated on Thursday 12 February 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what recent discussions he has had on the future of the Legal Services Commission in Wales with (a) the Secretary of State for Justice and (b) the First Minister; and if he will make a statement. (255544)

I have discussed this issue with the Welsh Minister for Social Justice and Local Government and with colleagues at the Ministry of Justice. I have also corresponded with my noble Friend Lord Bach, Minister for Legal Aid.

My right hon. Friend and I will continue to work closely with the Ministry of Justice and the Welsh Assembly Government to ensure that where efficiency savings need to be made within the Legal Services Commission, the best solution for Wales is found.
