HC Deb 24 May 1968 vol 765 c137W
Mr. Clegg

asked the Attorney-General what plans he now has for extending the legal aid scheme to administrative tribunals set up by statute.

The Attorney-General

The Advisory Committee, set up under the provisions of Section 13 of the Legal Aid and Advice Act 1949, have been asked to consider to which tribunals legal aid should be made available when financial circumstances permit, and what the priorities should be, both as between those tribunals themselves and in relation to other possible improvements of the Legal Aid and Advice Schemes. My noble Friend the Lord Chancellor is awaiting their Report.
