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.
