HC Deb 16 September 2004 vol 424 c1705WS
Sir Michael Spicer

To ask the Parliamentary Secretary, Department for Constitutional Affairs whether he plans to publish information as to the number of solicitors willing to take on no win, no fee cases. [189155]

Mr. Lammy

The information requested is not collected centrally. But the Law Society in its Solicitors' Firms Business survey 2003 found that, of those solicitors firms that use CFAs, 92 per cent. used them in personal injury cases, 24 per cent. in employment and pension cases, 17 per cent. in clinical negligence and 18 per cent. in professional negligence.
