HC Deb 09 February 1977 vol 925 c682W
Mr. Trotter

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will seek to amend the law so that the granting of legal aid in magistrates' courts becomes the responsibility of the Law Society's Legal Aid Department in order to ensure uniformity of treatment of applications made.

Mr. Merlyn Rees

I have no proposals for amending legislation on these lines.
