THANK THE LORD

Association of Personal Injury Lawyers’ president Deborah Evans fumed at the lack of time taken by MPs to debate the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Bill, declaring after last month’s House of Commons reading; “is 20 minutes of discussion all injured people are worth?” Well, she got her wish as 54 members of the House of Lords spent eight full hours on Monday 21st November, largely tearing the government’s proposals to pieces.

QUINN’S RISE AND FALL

Premex employees demonstrated striking contrasts in fancy dress choices after the company combined two charity fundraising drives on the same day. Dozens of ladies and gents donned pretty in pink outfits for Breast Cancer Campaign’s ‘Wear it Pink’ day only to arrive at the company’s Bolton Headquarters to be faced off by ghoulish Halloween monsters, blood-soaked zombies and psychotic surgeons.

WHIPLASH AT WESTMINSTER

Premex Group has been invited to the Houses of Parliament to present details of the medico legal process to MPs.
