HC Deb 06 May 1976 vol 910 cc440-1W
Mr. Douglas-Mann

asked the Attorney-General what representations he has received concerning the refusal by the Law Society of a "waiver" for the Hillingdon Law Centre; what action he has taken; and what steps he contemplates to ensure that similar difficulties for law centres do not arise in future.

The Attorney-General

My noble Friend has received representations from a number of persons and agencies, including the Hillingdon Borough Council, the Law Society and the management committee of the law centre. At the request of the Law Society and the law centre, my noble Friend has instituted a review of the matter, which he hopes to complete shortly. The arrangements under which my noble Friend will review decisions by the Law Society in matters of this sort were outlined to the House by my hon. and learned Friend the Solicitor-General on 5th April.
