§ Mr. Arthur Lewis
asked the Attorney-General whether he will give for the longest and most convenient period of time the number of occasions in which he has intervened to prevent barristers and solicitors from increasing their fees and incomes in excess of the Government's 10 per cent. guidelines; and with what results.
§ The Solicitor-General
The fees of self-employed barristers and solicitors are subject to the price code. My right hon. and learned Friend has no power of intervention under this code, the implementation of which is a matter for the Price Commission.
