The Welsh Government has launched a consultation on the proposed amendments to the Adoption Agencies (Wales) Regulations 2005 and the Care Planning, Placement and Case Review (Wales) Regulations 2015....
The Legal Services Bill was published on 24 November 2005. A new Legal Services Board will act as a single, independent and publicly accountable regulator with power to enforce high standards in the legal sector. The Bill also introduces:
an alternative business structure which will allow multi-discilinary practices;
an Office for Legal Complaints which will remove complaints handling from lawyers.
The Legal Services Bill follows the publication of a draft Legal Services Bill in May 2006 and the White Paper, The Future of Legal Services - Putting Consumers First in October 2005. For the full news story see January  Fam Law.
