§ Mr. Lammy
The Department received representations on regulating claims intermediaries in response to the consultation paper 'Simplifying CFAs' published in June 2003. A summary of the responses will be published in the spring.
The Government have commissioned Sir David Clementi to review the regulatory framework of the legal services industry. Sir David announced in October 2003 that he will consider unregulated providers and regulatory gaps as part of his review. Sir David is expected to issue a consultation paper shortly and is due to report by December 2004.
