Yesterday’s Law in Action on BBC Radio 4 featured the legal aid bill, with an interview with Nottingham Law Centre and one of their clients, as well as discussion around the proposals to remove legal aid from welfare benefits and clinical negligence cases. It ended with an interview with Ken Clarke, who defended his bill and particularly criticised the way speakers in the House of Lords have been near unanimously against it to date. He hinted at potential concessions at report stage, due to begin in a couple of weeks, but made clear he was not expecting them to be significant. You can download the programme from the Radio 4 website or listen to it on the iplayer.
