HC Deb 14 June 1973 vol 857 c346W
39. Mr. Wyn Roberts

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will make legal aid available for a removal of disqualification from driving.

Mr. Lane

The Departmental Committee on Legal Aid in Criminal Proceedings, which reported in 1966, thought that there was no real need for legal aid for this purpose, as the applicant himself could ordinarily explain his change of circumstances to the court. We have no information to suggest that this conclusion was wrong.
