Dear Legal Aid Agency,

As a director of national process serving company I would like to know why and on whats ground, NCDV, have been given preferential treatment. They are allowed to charge a fixed fee of £100 without providing times and postcodes.

They are not solicitors so they have no contract with you. They are instructed by solicitors and they in turn sub contract the work out.

1. How can NCDV have an agreement with the LAA
2. When are fixed fees going to be introduced
3. We submitted a selection of invoices to LAA only to be told that the the saving to the LAA of 15% if they approved fixed fee for us was not worth it.!!

Yours faithfully,

Richard Rubins

Dear Richard Rubins,

 

Thank you for your e-mail which is copied below. I am writing to advise
you that your enquiry does not fall under the Freedom of Information Act
2000 (FOIA) regime and has been rejected by the Disclosure Team.

 

It may be helpful if I explain that the FOIA gives individuals and
organisations the right of access to all types of recorded information
held, at the time the request is received, by public authorities such as
the Ministry of Justice (MoJ). Section 84 of the FOIA states that in order
for a request for information to be handled as a FOI request, it must be
for recorded information.

 

For example, a FOI request would be for a copy of a policy, rather than an
explanation as to why we have that policy in place. On occasion, the MoJ
receives requests that do not ask for recorded information, but ask more
general questions about, for example, a policy, opinion or a decision.

 

You may wish to re-submit your enquiry to the Ministry of Justice, which
will be treated as Official Correspondence. Our contact details are as
follows:

 

102 Petty France

London

SW1H 9AJ

 

Contact Form:

If you do have any questions relating specifically to the FOIA or Data
Protection Act (DPA), please contact the Disclosure Team at the following
e-mail address: [Legal Aid Agency request email]

 

Kind regards,

 

The Disclosure Team
