HC Deb 07 November 1973 vol 863 cc175-6W
Mr. Dell

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he has yet received from the Law Society the results of its survey of the operation of legal aid in criminal cases; what consideration he has given to this survey; and with what conclusions.

Mr. Carlisle

The Law Society sent my right hon. Friend a copy of its Report on Legal Aid in Criminal Proceedings. He proposes to await and take account of the reactions of persons and organisa- tions concerned with the courts before reaching any final conclusions.
