Legal Aid for Mercy Applications

Joshua Grainger made this Official Information request to Ministry of Justice

The request was successful.

From: Joshua Grainger

Dear Legal Services Agency,

The Governor-General's website reports that legal aid is available in some cases for applications for mercy. I would like to know:

* how many applications in the last 5 years has the LSA received for legal aid for applications for the prerogative of mercy? In how many of these applications was legal aid granted?

Yours faithfully,

Joshua Grainger

Just realised that the Legal Services Agency doesn't actually exist any more: legal aid is rather managed by the MOJ.

Sent request to Ministry of Justice again, using a new contact address.

Dear Ministry of Justice,

Apologies. I sent the previous request to an old Legal Services Agency contact not realising that it had been disestablished and that Legal Aid was now being managed by the Ministry of Justice. If you would treat my request as replacing 'LSA' with the 'Ministry of Justice' I would appreciate it.

Yours faithfully,

Joshua Grainger
