§ Mr. Singh
To ask the Parliamentary Secretary, Lord Chancellor's Department what assessment has been made 775W of the accuracy of the Department's estimate of the legal aid costs of the implementation of the Human Rights Act 1998, based on the first three months. 
§ Mr. Lock
No assessment has yet been made. It is too early to do so, but the initial indications are that the additional costs are less than the provision which has been made for them.
