To date 28 October 2010 the MOD has spent Â£2,090,373.48 on Civilian Counsel.
This is in addition to its own Barristers and Solicitors
Central Legal services 82 Service Prosecuting Authority 35
Army Legal Service 130
Not one of these of a calibre to represent the MOD in the Royal Courts of Justice . Over Â£2,000,000 to date and not ended there as Mr Bert Sinfield had the temerity to die of his cancer before the MOD could invent a cut off date.
