CLC comments on MoJ response

Commenting on the Ministry of Justice’s response to the CMA’s review of legal services, Sheila Kumar, Chief Executive, Council for Licensed Conveyancers said:

‘The support from the Ministry of Justice for the CMA’s recommendations on price and service information for should leave the legal sector in no doubt about the importance of implementing the CMA’s recommendation.

‘Work on the transparency of price and service information is progressing well between the regulators.  It is really important that all of the regulators in the legal services market work together towards a whole-of-market solution.

‘This letter from Lord Keen and the Ministry of Justice’s Tailored Review of the Legal Services Board challenge the regulators, including the oversight regulator, the Legal Services Board, to use all of the powers that we currently have to secure the separation of regulation from representation.’
