Tçnâ koe Danny,

 

I am writing about your request in which you asked for the following
information:

 1. The total number of legal aid applications and the outcome of those
applications to be broken down by criminal and non-criminal cases, as
far back as records permit and;
 2. The total number of criminal prosecutions initiated per annum, as far
back as records permit.

 

I reference in particular your request that we provide the total number of
legal aid applications and outcome to applications (approved, rejected,
etc) broken down by year as far back as records permit. The time frame of
‘as far back as records permit’ is broad and difficult to provide. To find
records of this nature would require substantial research and collation. I
am inviting you to consider refining your request to a particular time
frame and suggest that records from July 2011 would be appropriate.

 

I can advise that in 2011, the Legal Services Act came into force. It
disestablished the Legal services agency which was a separate Crown
entity. From July 2011, the Legal Services Commissioner became responsible
for granting legal aid under the direction of the Minister and Secretary
of Justice. Since that change in July 2011, we have complete records of
the total number of legal aid applications and the outcomes available. If
you’re happy to refine your request from July 2011, we will be able to
provide a response.

 

Due to the volume of information requested, a response cannot be made
within the original time limit. Accordingly, I’m extending the time limit
for a response to this request by twenty working days under section 15A of
the Official Information Act 1982. We will respond to you by 30 May 2019.
If you choose to refine your request to data from July 2011, we will be
able to provide a response in a shorter time frame.

 

Please confirm if you are willing to refine your request from July 2011,
or have another time frame preference. Please provide a response by 7 May
2019.

 

You have the right under section 28(3) of the Official Information Act to
complain to the Ombudsman about the decision to extend the timeframe for
response to your request.

   

Ngâ mihi,
