A senior legal figure has called for reform and regulation of the legal industry.

The call by the Master of the High Court, Edmund Honohan, comes in the wake of revelations that some solicitors charged their clients for work at the Institutional Redress Board, although the board was paying their fees.

Speaking on Morning Ireland, Mr Honohan said there is a huge appetite for reform in the profession.

But, he said, the profession needs to ask itself why it is so focused on costs.
