Legal Aid

Volume 448: debated on Tuesday 11 July 2006

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Constitutional Affairs what representations she has received about eligibility for legal aid in criminal cases. (84563)

I have regular and constructive dialogue with stakeholders, including members of the legal professions, MPs and members of the public, about eligibility for criminal legal aid. For example, I received a number of representations on this point in response to the recent consultation exercise on the draft regulations under the Criminal Defence Service Act.
