Other partners signed up to one or more of the majority of collective pledges were asked to provide an annual update.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p>The RD reporting cycle does not always map with organisations' cycles (for example clearance at board level) and end of fiscal year is a busy period for most partners. Some updates will also be in a ‘draft' status where they are partly completed by partners and not yet submitted. This means there can be delays, and we expect further submissions over the next few months. Partners can also update their submissions in-year, reporting on further progress made.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The amounts spent by the Serious Fraud Office (SFO) and the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) on external lawyers in each of the last four financial years is shown in the following table. Both organisations financial reporting systems are configured to provide information based on financial rather than calendar years.</p><table><tbody><tr><td colspan="3"><p><strong>Expenditure on external lawyers</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong>Year</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>CPS</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>SFO</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2010-11</p></td><td><p>£139,219,000</p></td><td><p>£4,523,561</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2011-12</p></td><td><p>£115,329,000</p></td><td><p>£4,822,253</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2012-13</p></td><td><p>£118,908,000</p></td><td><p>£5,956,633</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2013-14</p></td><td><p>£122,929,000</p></td><td><p>£19,077,467</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p>The SFO figures include the cost of external counsel, TSol and other legal fees, but do not include temporary agency staff. The SFO spend on counsel fees is published in its annual report. The increased figures for 2012-13 and 2013-14 reflect the revised treatment of VAT on some fees, repayment of some VAT which had been incorrectly recovered in earlier years, and costs relating to some very large cases and other litigation.</p><p>The SFO's requirement for additional expenditure in 2013-14 has already been set out to the House in documentation published around its Spring Supplementary Estimate, which has been scrutinised by the Justice Select Committee. The nature of the SFO's work means that it can occasionally incur significant additional legal expenses for its very largest and mostcomplex investigations and prosecutions, such as that into Libor.</p><p>The CPS figures are drawn from the CPS's core financial accounting system and they are consistent with the CPS's audited accounts. The great majority of fees for legal work paid by the CPS relates to the services of self-employed barristers and solicitors for crown court casework. The CPS also engages barristers and solicitors to undertake advocacy as agents in magistrates' courts sessions and, occasionally, to provide legal advice on discrete areas of specialist policy.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The figures below give the number of lawyers employed in the Treasury Solicitor's Department (TSol), as at 31<sup>st</sup> March each year and to date for 2014.</p><table><tbody><tr><td><p><strong>Year</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Full Time Equivalent</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong> 31st May 2014</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>910</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td><p><strong> 31st March 2013</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>572</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong> 31st March 2012</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>565</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong> 31st March 2011</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>464</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong> 31st March 2010</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>451</strong></p></td></tr></tbody></table><p>The figures given are for permanent staff.</p><p>Since 2010 TSol has been engaged on a process of transferring lawyers from other departments to TSol as part of the the Shared Legal Services Programme. Sharing legal services brings considerable benefits including greater flexibility and resiliance, more efficient deployment of legal resources, more opportunities for savings and improved knowledge sharing, which in turn supports consistency of legal advice across Government.</p><p> </p>
