Dear General Council of the Bar,

Please provide a list of the legal representatives (both the solicitors and barristers) who represented (i) the BSB and (ii) the defendant barrister in cases brought by the BSB against barristers at TBTAS. Please provide the data for the last five years listing the legal representatives and the cases.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Mr Shah

The General Council for the Bar is not a public authority and so is not subject to the Freedom of Information Act. However, in the interests of transparency, we try and respond to FOI requests in the spirit of the Act.

In response to your request:

1. We can provide a list of barristers who have represented the BSB at Tribunal, broken down by year, for the last 5 years. We are not represented by solicitors at Tribunals.
2. We cannot provide a list of the cases in which they represented us, as some of these hearings will not have taken place in public, and would therefore involve us disclosing personal data, in breach of Data Protection Legislation.
3. We cannot provide a list of the solicitors and barristers who have represented defendant barristers. This is because a) our system does not record this information in a manner which means we can extract it by automated means, and b) doing so would involve disclosing personal data, as at point 2.

Please can you let me know if you still require a list of barristers who have represented the BSB, as set out in (1) above?

Yours sincerely
