Dear General Council of the Bar,

How many law firms are included on the Bar Council's List of Defaulting Solicitors and Other Authorised Persons?

How many firms have been included at this time in the past three years?

What are the factors that influence a firm's inclusion on the List and who makes the decision to add them? Are the firms told of their being added to the List?

Can firms apply to be removed from this list and how many have successfully done so in the last three years?

Yours faithfully,

John Hyde
