Ministry of Justice launches triennial review

Ministry of Justice launches triennial review

Part of the Government’s response to the Public Administration Select Committee report ‘Smaller Government: Shrinking the Quango state’ was a commitment to a triennial review of non-departmental public bodies (NDPB). As part of this process the Ministry of Justice has decided to review the Legal Services Board (LSB) and the Office for Legal Complaints (OLC).

Although the OLC is not an NDPB, it has linkages to the LSB which brings it within the regulatory sphere of legal services and, although the bodies will be subject to individual reviews, they will be carried out in parallel.

The triennial reviews, whihc are expected to take between 3 – 6 months will look, inter alia, at whether an efficient and effective service is being delivered to the public and to ensure that the Government maintains a lean, but effective public sector.

As part of the process, the MoJ is seeking evidence from a wide range of bodies and would particularly welcome hearing from users of the LSB and the OLC.

If you wish to provide written evidence, this can be sent to:

LSB and OLC triennial reviews
Post point 4.19
Ministry of Justice
102 Petty France

The process closes on 30 March 2012
