Population explosion

Might it not be a kindness for Tony Girling to encourage the five former leaders of the Trainee Solicitors Group to continue with their proposals to warn students off a career in the solicitors profession?

The two main political parties, Hambros, the Legal Aid Board and now, the OFT, are doing their utmost in this direction.

In 40 years, the number of solicitors has quadrupled, while the population of England and Wales has hardly increased at all. Do they no longer teach the law of supply and demand in sixth forms?
