HC Deb 06 February 2002 vol 379 cc1027-8W
Mr. George Howarth

To ask the Parliamentary Secretary, Lord Chancellor's Department how many staff employed by her Department on community legal services are located in offices outside London; and in which locations. [32576]

Ms Rosie Winterton

The Lord Chancellor's Department employs nobody outside London on community legal services. The Community Legal Service is delivered by the Legal Services Commission through the Community Legal Service Partnerships and contacted suppliers, and these include both lawyers in private practice and organisations in the not-for-profit sector.
