Reply To: Legal professional privilege


Hi Pete,

I’m not sure about the ins and outs of LPP, but I would be cautious about including the documents in the submission.

My view is that you could find that you are in breach of Article 6 of the ECHR (right to a fair trial) and Article 8 (right to private and family life) if you disclose information that is protected by legal professional privilege – all the more so if the information is not directly relevant to the matter at hand.

I’d suggest that you discuss the matter with the legal services department of your LA.
