Central London, Hammersmith and Fulham, North Kensington and Paddington could all lose Law Centres
Four London Law Centres are facing closure on 1 April this year after being told by the Association of London Government that they will not have their funding renewed. Central London Law Centre, Hammersmith and Fulham Law Centre, North Kensington Law Centre and Paddington Law Centre are all under threat. North Kensington Law Centre was the first Law Centre to open in the UK in 1970, while Paddington Law Centre celebrates its 30th anniversary this week. In its annual report, Paul Boateng MP, chief secretary to the treasury and a former member of Law Centre staff, described Paddington as "an historic institution in the provision of legal services in Britain, and a vital community resource". A final decision is to be made by the Association of London Government on 5th February. The Law Centres submitted a written appeal this Monday, 27 January.
