Mr. Llwyd

To ask the Parliamentary Secretary, Lord Chancellor's Department how many representations he has received from interested parties which were supportive of his proposals for contingency fee payments to lawyers; and if he will make a statement. [40933]

The Government have not made any proposals for contingency payments to lawyers. We have received 233 responses to the Consultation Paper Access toJustice with Conditional Fees by the closing date of 30 April 1998. These are currently being analysed.
