HC Deb 04 May 1977 vol 931 c174W
Mrs. René e Short

asked the Attorney-General what was the average hourly sum paid, under legal aid arrangements, to solicitors and barristers, respectively, during 1974, 1975 and 1976.

The Attorney-General

I regret that this information is not available. Time is only one of the factors to be taken into consideration in determining such remuneration; and there are no readily available records which quantify the time element separately.
