unstar this property answer text <p>On 21 May 2019 the Ministry of Justice announced a public call for evidence to develop our understanding of how the family courts protect children and parents in cases of domestic abuse and other serious offences. Specifically, the call for evidence will focus on the application of Practice Direction 12J, Practice Direction 3AA, The Family Procedure Rules Part 3A, and s.91(14) orders, and will build a more detailed understanding of any harm caused during or following proceedings in the family court where there are allegations of domestic abuse. The written call for evidence was launched on 19 July and will run for 6 weeks.</p><p> </p><p>This call for evidence is coordinated by a panel of experts whose membership includes academics, members of the judiciary, and representatives from third sector bodies which represent or advocate for victims of domestic abuse, all of whom are independent of the Government. The panel will gather and interpret evidence from a full range of interested parties, to enable us to address appropriately any issues with the application of protections available in the family courts.</p><p><br> It is important that the Family Justice System strikes an appropriate balance between rightly protecting the confidentially of the individual children and family members, but also maintaining as open and transparent approach to court decisions as possible in these circumstances.</p>

unstar this property answer text <table><tbody><tr><td><p>The tables below show total Government expenditure on legal aid between 2005-6 and 2018-19 in nominal and real terms The information requested is not available for the period prior to 2005-6 as each series is presented as far back in time as it can be produced on a basis that is comparable with the most recent figures. Beyond this, measures of overall expenditure may not be directly comparable because the way legal aid is administered and public money is managed and accounted for have changed. In February, the government published the Legal Support Action Plan which committed to a number of changes to legal aid, including improving the Exceptional Case Funding scheme, expanding the scope of legal aid to all special guardianship orders in private family law, and removing the means test for those with parental responsibility who wish to oppose adoption and placement orders. In addition, we are reviewing the legal aid means testing framework to ensure that those who need legal aid are able to access it into the future. The Ministry of Justice, aims to complete the review by Summer 2020. <strong>RDEL - nominal terms (£m)</strong> <table><tbody><tr><td><p><strong>Financial<br> Year</strong></p></td><td><p>Criminal legal aid</p></td><td><p>Civil <br> legal aid</p></td><td><p>Central Funds</p></td><td><p><strong>Total <br> legal aid</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2005-06</p></td><td><p>1,200</p></td><td><p>843</p></td><td><p>69</p></td><td><p><strong> 2,112 </strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2006-07</p></td><td><p>1,190</p></td><td><p>777</p></td><td><p>53</p></td><td><p><strong> 2,020 </strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2007-08</p></td><td><p>1,203</p></td><td><p>824</p></td><td><p>65</p></td><td><p><strong> 2,092 </strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2008-09</p></td><td><p>1,172</p></td><td><p>903</p></td><td><p>73</p></td><td><p><strong> 2,148 </strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2009-10</p></td><td><p>1,101</p></td><td><p>961</p></td><td><p>88</p></td><td><p><strong> 2,150 </strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2010-11</p></td><td><p>1,175</p></td><td><p>1,026</p></td><td><p>78</p></td><td><p><strong> 2,279 </strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2011-12</p></td><td><p>1,115</p></td><td><p>966</p></td><td><p>101</p></td><td><p><strong> 2,182 </strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2012-13</p></td><td><p>995</p></td><td><p>946</p></td><td><p>98</p></td><td><p><strong> 2,039 </strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2013-14</p></td><td><p>967</p></td><td><p>825</p></td><td><p>81</p></td><td><p><strong> 1,873 </strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2014-15</p></td><td><p>889</p></td><td><p>685</p></td><td><p>63</p></td><td><p><strong> 1,637 </strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2015-16</p></td><td><p>861</p></td><td><p>600</p></td><td><p>49</p></td><td><p><strong> 1,511 </strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2016-17</p></td><td><p>863</p></td><td><p>646</p></td><td><p>45</p></td><td><p><strong> 1,554 </strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2017-18</p></td><td><p>891</p></td><td><p>678</p></td><td><p>49</p></td><td><p><strong> 1,619 </strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2018-19</p></td><td><p>879</p></td><td><p>731</p></td><td><p>48</p></td><td><p><strong> 1,657 </strong></p></td></tr></tbody></table><strong>RDEL - real terms (2018-19 prices) (£m)</strong><table><tbody><tr><td><p><strong>Financial<br> Year</strong></p></td><td><p>Criminal legal aid</p></td><td><p>Civil <br> legal aid</p></td><td><p>Central <br> Funds</p></td><td><p><strong>Total <br> legal aid</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2005-06</p></td><td><p>1,534</p></td><td><p>1,077</p></td><td><p>88</p></td><td><p><strong> 2,699 </strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2006-07</p></td><td><p>1,478</p></td><td><p>965</p></td><td><p>65</p></td><td><p><strong> 2,508 </strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2007-08</p></td><td><p>1,458</p></td><td><p>998</p></td><td><p>79</p></td><td><p><strong> 2,535 </strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2008-09</p></td><td><p>1,382</p></td><td><p>1,065</p></td><td><p>87</p></td><td><p><strong> 2,534 </strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2009-10</p></td><td><p>1,280</p></td><td><p>1,117</p></td><td><p>103</p></td><td><p><strong> 2,500 </strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2010-11</p></td><td><p>1,342</p></td><td><p>1,171</p></td><td><p>89</p></td><td><p><strong> 2,602 </strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2011-12</p></td><td><p>1,257</p></td><td><p>1,088</p></td><td><p>113</p></td><td><p><strong> 2,458 </strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2012-13</p></td><td><p>1,100</p></td><td><p>1,045</p></td><td><p>108</p></td><td><p><strong> 2,252 </strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2013-14</p></td><td><p>1,048</p></td><td><p>895</p></td><td><p>88</p></td><td><p><strong> 2,031 </strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2014-15</p></td><td><p>952</p></td><td><p>734</p></td><td><p>67</p></td><td><p><strong> 1,753 </strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2015-16</p></td><td><p>915</p></td><td><p>638</p></td><td><p>52</p></td><td><p><strong> 1,605 </strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2016-17</p></td><td><p>897</p></td><td><p>671</p></td><td><p>47</p></td><td><p><strong> 1,614 </strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2017-18</p></td><td><p>908</p></td><td><p>691</p></td><td><p>50</p></td><td><p><strong> 1,649 </strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2018-19</p></td><td><p>879</p></td><td><p>731</p></td><td><p>48</p></td><td><p><strong> 1,657 </strong></p></td></tr></tbody></table>Note: 2018 - 19 prices are based on the deflator series published by the ONS on 28 June 2019. RDEL (Resource Departmental Expenditure Limit) is current expenditure from within the annual Departmental Expenditure Limits that are set by the Treasury for each government department, and is used in the MoJ and LAA Annual Report &amp; Accounts. It aims to measure the value of all work carried out in each period, regardless of whether it is on cases that have finished. RDEL excludes AME (hence so do the budgeting measures shown in the table). AME (Annually-Managed Expenditure) broadly covers unpredictable or uncontrollable expenditure. In legal aid terms this is work in progress where the payment date is unknown. It can be negative for individual years. In 2013-14, responsibility for Central Funds spending transferred from the Ministry of Justice to the Legal Aid Agency. From October 2014 a new administrative system has enabled these statistics to be based on the general ledger prior to accounting adjustments, and therefore from 2015-16 they are no longer identical to the RDEL figures.</p></td></tr></tbody></table>
