§ 56. Mr. W. Edwards
asked the Attorney-General why Section 7 of the Legal Aid and Advice Act, 1949, has not yet been brought into force; and when it is proposed to bring it into force.
§ The Attorney-General
The economic situation has not so far permitted the introduction of the legal advice scheme for which provision is made by Section 7 of the Legal Aid and Advice Act, 1949. I cannot yet say when the Section will be brought into force, but it will not in any event be possible to introduce the scheme before legal aid is made available in the county courts.
