List of specialist regulatory advocates in health and safety and environmental law and appointment of Standing Counsel (Unified List) – The Bar Council

“In November, it was announced that the Attorney General had agreed that the Unified List in its current form should draw to a close and that new arrangements would be taken forward by individual departments rather than under the auspices of the Attorney General’s office. On 31 March 2012 the Attorney General’s Unified List of Prosecuting Advocates will come to an end. The Health and Safety Executive, Environment Agency and Office of Rail Regulation wish to appoint a list of advocates to conduct their higher court prosecution work and other regulatory advocacy. HSE and ORR also each wish to appoint two Standing Counsel.”
