Consultation description

As part of the UK government’s requirement for public bodies to be efficient, effective and accountable, all government departments must conduct a Tailored Review of their ALBs at least once in the lifetime of a parliament, every 5 years.

The separate but concurrent Tailored Reviews of the Legal Services Board (LSB) and the Office for Legal Complaints (OLC) will examine whether there is a continuing need for the function and form of each organisation.

In particular, this will include an assessment of organisational performance and governance arrangements.
