HC Deb 03 April 2001 vol 366 c172W
33. Mrs. Gilroy

To ask the Parliamentary Secretary, Lord Chancellor's Department if he will make a statement on the progress of the Community Legal Service in the south-west. [155203]

Mr. Lock

The Community Legal Service is making good progress in the south-west. There are now CLS Partnerships in Cornwall, Devon, Plymouth, north Somerset, Dorset, Wiltshire, Bristol, Swindon, and Gloucestershire. The CLS Partnerships cover 76 per cent. of the population of the south-west, and I am confident this figure will continue to grow.
