HC Deb 07 February 1975 vol 885 cc666-7W
Mr. Frank Maguire

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if he will take steps to have the recent English Acts relating to legal advice made applicable to Northern Ireland.

Mr. Merlyn Rees

I propose to introduce an Order in Council to bring the legal advice scheme in Northern Ireland broadly into line with the provisions of the Legal Aid Act 1974, which apply in England and, of course, to Wales.
