Bear in mind that people have a legal right to advocacy: Lambeth may well be in breach of the law in not ensuring that people have access to advocacy...just a thought...

This came up in our area in 2002. We were able to argue that cutting advocacy would take away legal rights, and the local council looked for other places to cut where they didn't have the same duty.

And they have no right as I understand it to withold their equality impact assessment: failure to publish could be challengeable and almost certainly would come under the Freedom of Information Act if nothing else.
