HC Deb 26 July 1978 vol 954 c753W
Mr. Channon

asked the Attorney-General what representations he has received from pensioners urging a change in the financial conditions of legal aid; and if he will make a statement.

The Solicitor-General

My noble Friend has received many inquiries about improving the financial conditions for legal aid, some of which have been from organisations or persons representing pensioners. My noble Friend is fully aware of the difficulties the present financial conditions can involve, particularly for elderly people who have accumulated small savings. He intends to improve the financial limits as soon as sufficient resources become available.
