“In April 2013, the Ministry of Justice presented its proposals for price competitive tendering (PCT) for criminal defence work. In June, the Law Society proposed its alternative approach, which would require that PCT is shelved. Shortly afterwards, the Ministry of Justice announced that it would be revising its approach to allow clients to choose their own solicitor, and that there would be a further consultation in September 2013.”
