HC Deb 08 July 1974 vol 876 c385W
Mr. Craigen

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what plans he has for raising the income and capital limits for citizens to qualify for legal aid in Scotland.

Mr. William Ross

Regulations will shortly be laid before Parliament increasing the upper income limits for legal aid from £1,175 a year to £1,380 a year. There are no proposals at present to increase the capital limits.
