HC Deb 12 July 2001 vol 371 c650W
Mr. Dismore

To ask the Parliamentary Secretary, Lord Chancellor's Department what plans the Lord Chancellor has to extend the operation of conditional fees to cases based on the Human Rights Act 1998; and if he will make a statement. [3149]

Mr. Wills

None. Conditional fee agreements have been available for all forms of civil business other than family proceedings since 1998. Thus conditional fee agreements are already available for civil cases concerning human rights.
