Haldane Policy: Strategy Regarding Legal Aid Cuts

On 13 May 2013 the Executive of the Society approved a policy setting out our strategy to defeat the government's vicious legal aid cuts.  The policy calls on our members to intervene at every level in the profession to encourage a militant approach to the fight back, and to call not only to protect the existing system but to rebuild what has been lost already.

The Society will be calling for an immediate and co-ordinated 24 hour strike at all levels of the profession, and for a programme of increasingly intsense strike action thereafter until our demands are met.
