HC Deb 10 March 1981 vol 1000 c290W
Mr. Heddle

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services in what circumstances legal aid is available for supplementary benefit claimants in cases where the claimant is appealing against the decision of the local appeals tribunal.

Mr. Rossi

Legal aid is not available for appeals against decision of supplementary benefit appeal tribunals, which lie in the first instance to social security commissioners. However, assistance is available under the Legal Advice and Assistance (Green Form) Scheme for the preparation of such appeals.
