LSANI - Consultation on Publication of Annual Payments to Suppliers of Legal Aid

Closed 29 Apr 2021

Opened 4 Feb 2021

Overview

This consultation seeks views on the principle of providing high-level information that indicates the areas in which legal aid is expended and details of the level of payments made to suppliers of publicly funded legal services.

Why your views matter

The Legal Services Agency Northern Ireland has launched this public consultation to seek views on options for the re-establishment of the policy to publish, on an annual basis, details of the payment of public funds to those suppliers who deliver services funded by legal aid.

What happens next

This consultation has now closed. Thank you for your input.

We will be assessing all feedback from respondents and updating the results on this page.  

Following the consultation exercise, the draft proposals will be finalised and a publication scheme for the information will be developed, including amendments to the current privacy notice. 

The LSA will then work to deliver against this publication scheme.
