The Law Society has restated its request for government to publish the study it commissioned from an academic, regarding costs in personal injury cases – particularly those concerning road traffic accident claims.
The Ministry of Justice has rejected the Society’s request, considered under Freedom of Information (FOI) provisions, to disclose the full report which the ministry received from Professor Paul Fenn, of Nottingham Business School.
The Law Society has now requested a review of this decision.
Desmond Hudson, chief executive of the Law Society, said:
‘We believe that the government is hiding behind a misapplication of the Freedom of Information Act in order to save its blushes. The factual evidence should be published so that we can all see it for ourselves. Transparency in policymaking will help to reinforce trust in government and the political process.’
