House’s organisation has just made redundant the single full time administrator that works in House’s team of 5. House and his team now only half a part time administrator who works half the week.

House has heard of other advice providers who as a result of restructuring have cut back their administrative support to the bare bones or indeed nothing as they desperately try to make the provision of CLS advice viable.

House wonders if other providers have suffered from losing their administrative support and now have to do it themselves with the resulting fact, in House’s view, that casework suffers.

House also wonders at what there is left to cut and whether providers such as House’s organisation are just delaying the inevitable day when it is no longer viable for them to run such CLS contracts without subsidising them with other funds, which House believes to be unlawful (apologies if it’s not).

Maybe the LSC don’t care if organisations who may view such contracts as some sort of loss leader subsidise the running of the contract with other funding. House thinks that some organisations can’t afford to pull out of providing CLS work as by doing so they might not be in good position to bid for other profitable work.

Pulling out of such work may mean that organisations loss their influence and presence, for want of  better words, in their respective fields and the money that comes with such things.
