HC Deb 26 July 1982 vol 28 c842
The Solicitor-General

I beg to move amendment No. 14, in page 9, line 7 leave out from 'proceedings' to end of line 9.

Mr. Deputy-Speaker

With this it will be convenient to take Government amendments Nos. 16 and 17.

The Solicitor-General

These amendments remove the requirement that the defendant should only be given credit towards his legal aid contribution for any contribution paid in respect of advice and assistance where the same solicitor gives his advice and assistance and acts for him under a legal aid order.

Amendment agreed to.

Amendments made: No. 16, in page 9, line 10 after '(2)' insert: 'If the solicitor assigned to the person in question by the legal aid order is the same as the solicitor who gave the advice or assistance'. No. 17, in page 9, line 24 after 'effect', insert: 'in a case to which subsection (2) above applies'. —[The Solicitor-General.]
