  • I cannot see on what basis the Consumer Panel has reached this conclusion. It seems pretty obvious that outside owners of legal practices (i.e. ABS) will be investing in order to see a return on their investment, and that will not be achieved by filling the gap left by reductions in legal aid as the majority of individuals who have previously needed legal aid will not be in a position to afford to pay legal fees themselves. That is why they needed legal aid!
