§ Mr. McCrindle
asked the Attorney-General why, under Part II of the Sex Discrimination Bill dealing with employment matters, legal aid is not available whereas under Part III of the Bill dealing with discrimination in the provision of service it is.
§ The Attorney-General
Complaints of discrimination under Part II may be presented to industrial tribunals, and legal aid is not yet available for any proceedings before these tribunals. Legal advice and assistance in preparing an applicant's case can, however, be given under the "green form scheme". Claims of discrimination under Part III may be the subject of civil proceedings in a county court, for which legal aid is generally available under the Legal Aid Act 1974.
