Legal Complaints and Regulation Act (Northern Ireland) 2016

Section 22: Information and documents

Section 22 empowers the Bar Complaints Committee to require such information and/or documents from parties to a complaint as the Committee may specify before the end of such period (and it must be a reasonable period) as the Committee may specify, and in such manner of form as the Committee may specify. Subsection (4) allows the Committee, in the absence of a document, to require the person asked to produce it to state to the best of that person’s knowledge and belief where it is.

Subsection (5) means that none of these powers may be used to compel disclosure which could not be compelled in civil proceedings before the High Court.
