LASPO Bill – Lords’ 2nd reading briefing 21 Nov

The Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Bill is due to be debated by the House of Lords on Monday 21 November 2011. We have prepared a briefing for members to send onto peers to ask them to attend the debate.

We would encourage all members to think about any contacts they may have with peers and to send on our briefing to ask them to speak at the debate on Monday to raise your concerns. For instance, some YLAL members have already been “paired up” with a peer under the Justice for All scheme. Others will be members of charities or organisations who have peers as patrons or supporters. You may also be members of religious organisations whose leaders sit in the House.

The briefing can be downloaded here.

For details of the Justice for All scheme, see our previous “news” post.
