Take your MP to work day
The #TakeYourMPtoWork campaign is now in full swing with more than 60 MPs from around the country and across the political spectrum taking part. This includes the previousLegal Aid Minister, Paul Maynard MP, who visited his local advice centre on 21 June, Minister of State at the Ministry of Justice Lucy Frazer and the Shadow Lord Chancellor, Richard Burgon. The All-Party Parliamentary Group on Legal Aid and Young Legal Aid Lawyers are arranging visits to courts, firms and law centres across England and Wales. MPs will be visiting law centres and legal advice surgeries during June and July to see first-hand why comprehensive early legal advice is so vital. The government has committed to piloting early legal advice in social welfare law . We need them to recognise that social welfare problems are complex and often not confined to one area of law. The government must commit to a comprehensive early legal advice pilot. We need your help - please ask your MP to take part/consider taking part if you are an MP!
