    That was another point raised by both noble Lords who spoke. With only slight exaggeration my spouse claims the bedroom door had hardly closed before she heard my car wheels spinning as I hurtled towards the police station. The suggestion was to merge the Newark duty solicitor scheme with the Mansfield scheme. Can offer appointments on short notice Approachable A team of professional lawyers in Southampton All the lawyers at Peter Clarke Solicitors LLP have been practising for years, which makes them qualified to handle any type of legal issue that you might be facing.

    Fourthly, are the proposed remuneration arrangements—if solicitors are to be expected to provide a hour duty service overnight and at weekends—sufficiently generous to ensure that solicitors of experience and competence will take part? Only select one data option at a time. I wish to make this crystal clear. Their advice included provision for a central manned telephone answering system for the whole of England and Wales, which would be used to contact in any locality the duty solicitor there at any hour of the day or night. I wish to make one central point this evening; that is, that the provision of legal advice to suspects who have no solicitor of their own is inextricably bound up with the provision of advice to those who do so have.

    The Law Society has asked that the legal aid and advice regulations should be amended as a matter of urgency to cover the Metropolitan Police experiment and any others which occur before 1st January and indeed thereafter. Can you tell me if the police said for what offence he was being arrested? Court duty solicitor arrangements Responsibilities and obligations of the court duty solicitor and the relationship with the nominated solicitor Read about the responsibilities of the court duty solicitor and how you should assist a prospective nominated solicitor. This is in order to provide legal aid services to that community.

My telephone manner is not at its best at that time of the morning. For many of us in this House the central issue in the debates on the Police and Criminal Evidence Act was the right of a suspect to legal advice when in custody.

That provision is his right of access to legal advice from a solicitor when a person in a police station in custody for questioning has to consult a solicitor privately at any time.

I make no complaint of this, but I have therefore had to prepare this answer in advance of such knowledge and, to some extent, must deal in generalities. Combined with other cuts to the system, many lawyers no longer see a viable career doing this work, and it is difficult to attract and retain new members of the profession.
