Law Society want legal aid answers.

THE Law Society wrote to the Legal Services Commission (LSC) to express its "grave concerns" about how issues with the civil legal aid tendering round "remain unanswered".

Chief executive Des Hudson fired off a letter to LSC chief Carolyn Regan with a raft of questions. They included when exactly the tendering was due to start and some of the fine print of the procurement agreements.

The urgent request for information comes as time is running out before the tenders are due to open.

Mr Hudson insisted civil legal aid solicitors urgently need public final answers to all the outstanding issues.

He said: "It is a matter of grave concern to us that so many major issues remain unclear this close to the launch of the tender."

He asked for a response with the "utmost urgency".
