Monthly ET Receipts by region
06 November 2014
What’s interesting about the graph1 is that the proportion of cases in London has been drifting up, at the expense of the other regions. The trend has taken us from about 20% of the cases being in London at the start of 2012 to about 27% at the start of 2014/15.
If I had to guess, I’d say this is a combination of Londoners having better access to advice, especially from the voluntary sector – and being, in general, higher paid and therefore slightly less likely to be put off by fees.2
