HC Deb 26 March 1970 vol 798 cc523-4W
Mr. Roy Hughes

asked the Attorney-General whether, in view of the improved economic circumstances, he will now take steps to make funds available to provide financial assistance to enable those persons eligible under the legal aid system, who desire to buy the freehold of their property but cannot arrive at a satisfactory settlement with the ground landlord, to take the matter to the Lands Tribunal.

The Attorney-General

My noble Friend, the Lord Chancellor, proposes to extend the provisions of the Legal Aid and Advice Act, 1949 as soon as possible to all proceedings in the Lands Tribunal, probably before Whitsun.
