Association of Personal Injury Lawyers: Justice minister defends mesothelioma review


Posted by Wolferstans Admin on 31st January 2014

Justice minister Shailesh Vara has this week defended the Government’s decision to implement the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders (LASPO) Act 2012 for mesothelioma claims. When the LASPO Act was passed by Parliament, a clause included in the Act said that the changes to success fees and ATE insurance would not apply to mesothelioma claims until a review had been carried out and a report published.
