No reprieve for Specialist Support Service

No reprieve for Specialist Support Service

first_imgThe Specialist Support Service (SSS) will be scrapped at the end of this month, the Legal Services Commission has announced following a consultation. Under the scheme, lawyers and advisers at Citizens Advice, law centres and law firms across the country can get telephone advice from experts in fields of law that fall outside their direct expertise. The LSC originally planned to close the service in March to save money and avoid duplication of work. It extended contracts for three months to consult on the future of the service after the Public Law Project (PLP) threatened a legal challenge to the original decision. The LSC received 69 responses to the consultation, which it said amounted to less than 3% of the providers eligible to use the service. After considered the responses, the LSC said the evidence suggested that the service is being used for routine matters to relieve workloads, and that a ‘significant’ volume of callers are from organisations without LSC contracts. Where complex queries exist, it said there are other suitable options for dealing with them. An LSC spokesman, said: ‘Since 2010 civil legal aid contracts stipulate that contract holders must be able to provide specialist advice and employ specialist advisers in-house, and to continue with specialist support contracts would amount to duplication.’ He said that discontinuing the service would save money and ‘focus resource at a time when legal aid funding has to be prioritised on providing specialist advice to eligible clients’. The SSS is provided by nine organisations: Citizens Advice, Shelter, virtual law firm Scott Moncrieff, the PLP, London firm Wilson & Co, Child Poverty Action Group, London Advice Services Alliance and Shelter Cymru. Over the past four years the service has cost between £1m and £1.65m a year, the LSC said.last_img read more

Chief Zábranský has returned to the substitution and since then Kometa…

first_imgExactly two weeks before the planned start of the hockey extra league, the principals of the individual teams met once again to discuss at the General Meeting of the Association of Professional Clubs (APK) the play or possible postponement of the first rounds of the competition.The result is a verdict that the hockey carousel will start as it should on September 18. Symbolically shortly afterwards, Kometa and Třinec in Brno tried to find out what it would be like in the first round. Two extra-league colossi competed in the preparatory match, and after the arrival of Ralfs Freibergs from the 62nd minute, Kometa rejoiced at the 5: 4 victory after extra time.“We have to play (in the extraleague) better, especially in the defensive zone, and not foule unnecessarily. This will be very important in our preparation for the extra league and the journey here. I believe that Kometa will make it difficult for everyone, especially here in Brno. I just hope it all goes off as it should. We are also preparing our boys so that we can kick it out here on September 18, “said Václav Varaďa, a coach from Třinec.According to behind-the-scenes reports, the comet does not look very good at the start of the competition in the original term, mainly due to the reduced capacity of the stadiums. Only a handful of fans gathered for her match yesterday, the announcer announced 660 tickets sold.Nevertheless, the hockey players showed that they are slowly starting to move at an extra-league pace. “We are not solving things around and we are counting on it starting,” said Petr Holík, the author of two goals in the Třinec net. “We had a bad start to training, but there was still plenty of time, just as we still have time now. It’s important to us that we start winning. It’s good for the confidence that we can prove it works, even though we got goals today right after we scored them ourselves. The important thing is that we win, “Holík concluded.The comet scored its second win in two days, after winning 5: 1 in Zlín on Thursday, and the third win in a row after the club owner Libor Zábranský returned to the substitution. The head of the blue-and-white organization originally announced that he would not get so close to the team because he was negotiating with many people about building a multifunctional arena and did not want to expose players to the risk of coronavirus infection.Simultaneously with this decision, the Comet began to win. “I can’t tell if it has any effect. In the same way, the implementation team consults with each other, and the fact that Mr. Zábranský was not on the exchange does not mean that he did not intervene in the events. We wanted to play the same thing all the time, we improved from match to match, but it’s still not that. We have two weeks to finish it, “Holík thought.Both on Thursday in Zlín and on Friday, the Brno top five led by Holík played a brilliant power play at home. In both cases, she used three.“Today it kept them in the match, they had very good power-ups,” said Varaďa, a coach from Třinec, about the Comet’s main weapon.The people of Brno entered the numerical superiority with four attackers (including Peter Schneider) and the defender Ralfs Freibergs. Both of them are new to Brno and according to Holík they needed time to be included in the set.“It simply came to our notice then. We play it the same way as last year and the year before, only the two of them, as they are new there, had to learn powerlifting, “said Holík.The forward Jakub Valský, who was in the Comet for a two-week rehearsal, reappeared in the Brno team. After two matches, it will be decided during the weekend.“It’s also a matter of negotiating with his parent club. In our country, he played very well, “Pokorný said of the former Kladno or Liberec player.Against Třinec, on the other hand, several members of Kometa’s basic staff were absent. The defender Stanislav Svozil became a big loser, who was injured in the first match after returning from quarantine. In Zlín, he was attacked by the native Pavel Kubiš and caused him a horse.“The foul from Kubiš was unpleasant. It’s a horse and it’s about Svozil’s thigh regenerating, “Pokorný announced.According to him, forward Tomáš Vincour was injured and defender Tomáš Bartejs did not feel well. “But I don’t want it to sound like we have an infected player. He was not in his element, so he was given time off by Sunday and will return to training on Monday, “said Kometa’s coach.The last two preparatory matches are planned by the Brno team for next week. He plays in Vítkovice on Tuesday and at home with Zlín on Thursday.last_img read more
