A survey on bail time between charge and first appearance

PUBLISHED January 13, 2012

The solicitors' representative on the CPR Committee (Paul Harris) is looking to put together some proposals in relation to the provision of initial details of a case (advance information) between charge and the first appearance for defendants who are released on bail, but he would like an idea as to how long this period is, on average.  It seems that it varies massively between the different regions, and if you have a spare moment would you please enter some example cases in the survey available here .
