London firm Hickman & Rose is waiting for the Legal Aid Board to respond to its affidavit, after being granted leave for judicial review last month. The firm is challenging a decision by the City of London Local Duty Solicitor Committee which stops duty solicitors delegating night-time and weekend work to non-solicitor representatives in certain cases. The local committee took the decision under powers delegated from the Legal Aid Board. Hickman & Rose argues that the board's support for the decision is inconsistent with its recommendations that work be delegated to the appropriate level of personnel. The Legal Aid Board said its affidavit should be published by 13 August.
