Government defeated over housing legal aid

25 June 2018

The government’s legal aid reforms suffered a new blow when a High Court judge quashed controversial changes in the way it procures duty contracts for housing. The court was ruling on a judicial review brought by the Law Centres Network (LCN), heard over two days last month. 

Mrs Justice Andrews accepted the network’s challenge to the MoJ’s decision to proceed with a controversial new tender which the LCN would drastically consolidate the scheme and introduce price competition. The proposal will now be remitted to the MoJ for reconsideration.
