I am well pleased to see that Lord Young of Graffham has issued a report (as commissioned by David Cameron) that condemns ambulance chasing lawyers, and calls for curbs on the the aggressive advertising used by these lawyers.
Lord Young is of the view that members of the public are encouraged by unscrupulous lawyers to pursue frivolous personal injury and negligence cases, while "well-meaning" people are deterred from organising voluntary activities.
He notes that the industry has created a "particularly pernicious" climate of fear that puts off well-meaning members of the public from organising voluntary activities in case they are sued if an accident happens.
Lord Young said:
"People who seek to do good in our society should not fear litigation as a result of their actions."
Needless to say, the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers doesn't like Lord Young's conclusions.
This organ has released a statement claiming that changes to health and safety legislation will result in a culture of "carelessness and injury".
