Lawyers in Leeds had a chance to question the Attorney General at the end of last month. Sir Nicholas Lyell took time out from campaigning in the local elections to discuss current legal issues with local lawyers. Among the concerns raised were the timescale for implementing Lord Woolf's fast track proposals and why the Government was not actively promoting court-annexed alternative dispute resolution. The meeting took place at the Leeds office of Wansbroughs Willey Hargrave. Managing partner Glenn Miller, said: "It was very useful to have someone so close to government take time to come over to see lawyers in this area. It let people get their views over to him and alerted him to problems, such as a shortage of resources, that he hadn't necessarily appreciated before."
