Dear Ministry of Justice,

2.Other than numbers of registered lawyers who accept legal aid cases how sure are you that these firms are accepting the number seeking such representation?.
3.Have you sort numbers of cases being currently refused for legal aid , family court and on what grounds? Or lawyers have turned away due to them being legally aided clients?
