Justice Select Committee calls for evidence into interpreting and translation services
The Justice Select Committee has announced an inquiry into the provision of interpretation and translation services since Applied Language Solutions (ALS) began operating as the Ministry of Justice's sole contractor for language services in February 2012, and has called for evidence.
The Law Society is considering submitting evidence to the Committee in relation to one area under its consideration, and in which our members may have had experience, namely whether the new arrangements for the provision of interpreter and translation services as of February 2012 has affected the court or tribunal hearings in which they have been involved.
If you, as a solicitor, have had any direct experience of the provision of interpreters in courts or tribunals by ALS that may be of interest to the Select Committee and which we could include in a submission, please email brief details by Monday 6 August to firstname.lastname@example.org.
