Volume 496: debated on Tuesday 1 September 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how many complaints the Office for Legal Complaints dealt with in the last 12 months. (287187)

The Office for Legal Complaints has not considered any complaints in the past 12 months, as it is not as yet fully operational. Under current plans, this is expected to take place later in 2010. Until that time, complaints about the legal profession will continue to be handled by the professional bodies in the first instance with the Office of the Legal Services Ombudsman providing an appeal mechanism.
