Devolved powers for JR extended

The LSC has announced that all organisations that currently have devolved powers for judicial review cases will continue to have them until March 2013. This means that the provision in the 2010 and 2012 contracts restricting devolved powers in JR cases will not now be brought into force. The LSC are developing policy on what to do from April next year, when devolved powers will be renamed delegated functions; they will not be available except in a limited range of cases and to providers who meet criteria yet to be developed
