The Government is considering the planned post-implementation review of recent legal aid reforms and we will make an announcement in due course.

We are aware that previous Ministers agreed to submit a post-legislative memorandum for the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act to Parliament and to begin a post-implementation review of recent legal aid reforms shortly afterward. We are also aware that the Government has had a long-standing commitment to doing this review and publishing it by April 2018.
