§ Mr. Stratton Mills
asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what plans he has to introduce legislation in Northern Ireland similar to the Legal Advice and Assistance Act 1972; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Peter Mills
Legislation is under consideration to expand the legal aid and advice scheme already operating in Northern Ireland so as to bring it broadly into line with the provisions of the Legal Advice and Assistance Act 1972. I cannot say when or in what form it will be introduced.
