HC Deb 21 December 1982 vol 34 c418W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Attorney-General whether, in view of public concern at the growing costs of trials, Her Majesty's Government will take steps to reduce these costs.

The Solicitor-General

Her Majesty's Government are constantly endeavouring to reduce the cost of legal proceedings both to the Exchequer and to the litigant, and to obtain better value for the public money spent.
