HL Deb 02 March 1989 vol 504 cc1249-50WA
Lord Kennet asked Her Majesty's Government

Whether they will publish the evidence on the basis of which the recent Green Paper on the legal profession (Cmnd. 570) was published.

The Lord Chancellor (Lord Mackay of Clashfern)

The Green Paper on the work and organisation of the legal profession sets out from first principles what the Government believe the organisation of the legal profession should be in order best to provide legal advice services of the right quality for the particular needs of the client. It does not proceed from reports and surveys, although certain published background material is referred to in the Green Paper itself.
