To ask the Parliamentary Secretary; Lord Chancellor's Department what plans he has to extend the provisions for lay advocacy in the county courts; and when a timetable for this project will be set.

The situation is under review. If proposals to extend the current arrangements for lay representation in the county courts are pursued, they would be put out to public consultation.
