HC Deb 17 March 1944 vol 398 c529W
Sir W. Smithers

asked the Attorney-General if His Majesty's Government contemplate introducing, in the near future, a Bill, on the lines of the Medical White Paper, to provide free legal aid for all citizens of this country.

The Attorney-General

On the problem raised in this Question I cannot at the moment add to the answer which I gave on 26th January to the hon. Member for Bristol Central (Lady Apsley) when I indicated that the whole question of free or assisted legal advice and aid was under the consideration of my Noble Friend the Lord Chancellor.
