The Carter Report has got right up my nose. It is full of financial waffle and pays no attention to how a criminal firm actually operates. The notion of price competitive tendering will allow a small number of big firms to wipe out many small practices currently operating.

Carter does not seem to understand that not all criminal work comes via the duty solicitor and that some practices have very successful client bases. His report seems to ignore how work generated from 'own clients' should be remunerated.

Carter has shafted us all.

Looking at the characters on the Commission, it's not surprising the profession is likely to be shafted.
By the way I still have a badge "CDS Don't Sign Contract"!

Criminal Solicitors

I am not sure about all the criminal solicitors but few of them read that report very carefully,
