Subject: RE: Sign a E Petition to 10 Downing St PELs
In the Times shortly will be an open letter from a Lawyers/performers group, about the Human Rights Aspect of this legislation. Letter sent direct to the Minister. Signatures include that of a QC.

I also fear that the legislation will go through via the canon fodder of MP's but keeping the pressure up should be good. There are concerns in the Department that Local Authorities will run amok, hence centralised fees. The Local Government Association are the body that influences Local Authorities the most. They have a seminar on this subject next spring. See their Web site - search UK Local Government Association
