HC Deb 27 September 1944 vol 403 c262W
Sir L. Lyle

asked the Attorney-General whether he will consider extending the activities of the Poor Persons Committees to county court cases.

The Attorney-General

A Committee appointed by my Noble Friend the Lord Chancellor under the Chairmanship of Lord Rushcliffe is at present considering the facilities available generally for giving legal advice and assistance to poor persons. The terms of reference are sufficiently wide to allow the Committee to consider the extension referred to.
