Can We Propose Better Cuts?

Jo Gavin  Are there expenses cuts in the judicial administration that could save as much as the cuts to legal aid?

If I got legal aid for ten days worth of transcripts to be transcribed at £150 an hour and it took so far 16 months for them to come through but they had been paid for and then I got told by the civil appeal court yesterday that they could not provide them with no explanation, is this a moral waste of tax payers money, when these cuts are being proposed to legal aid system? If administration of the courts was cleaned up how much could be saved? Can anyone suggest better cuts? Numbers please? Expenses too the economics please.. Any suggestions would be appreciated less…
