star this property answer text <p>I neither advised on the content of, nor approved, the letter that was sent by the Crown Prosecution Service to members of the independent Bar about action against cuts to legal aid. I was however aware that the letter was to be sent. </p><p> I have said on more than one occasion that there is no justification for barristers failing to honour their professional obligations to the CPS because there is no dispute with the CPS about the level of prosecution fees. It was perfectly proper for the CPS to send this letter reminding barristers of these obligations.</p> more like this
