§ 21. Mr. E. Fletcher
asked the Attorney- General when the Government intend to introduce the scheme for providing free legal advice.
§ 22. Brigadier Medlicott
asked the Attorney-General if he will now indicate the date by which it is proposed to inaugurate the scheme for the provision of free legal advice to persons of limited means.
§ The Attorney-General (Sir Lionel Heald)
I regret that I am not yet in a position to make a statement.
§ Mr. Fletcher
Can the Attorney-General tell us when he hopes to be able to make a statement, bearing in mind the great demand for this service, that its introduction is long overdue, and that its introduction, because of the facilities it affords, would result in a reduction in the number of actions now legally aided?
§ The Attorney-General
I will see that the hon. Member's views are conveyed to the appropriate quarter.
