Willy Bach response to LASPO defeat of Govt this evening in Lords

Commenting on the Government's defeat 201-191 on Lord Bach's fatal order motion on the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act in the House of Lords, Lord Bach said:

"This is a victory for Parliament in holding Ministers to their word. What the government should now do is fulfil the undertakings given in the House of Commons at 'ping-pong' by the then Lord Chancellor. That would do something to alleviate the position of those highly vulnerable people, including many with disabilities, looking to appeal to First Tier Tribunals on points of social welfare law."
"Ministerial threats to withdraw any concession whatsoever were particularly unappealing to the House, and government now has a duty to respond in a more generous manner."
