§ Mr. Stainton
asked the Attorney-General if he will made a statement on the remarks of the Master of the Rolls in the judgment in the case R. and T. Thew Ltd. v. Reeves urging the need to review the Legal Aid Act 1974 to ensure that aid is not used to take unfair advantage of the unassisted party.
A copy of the judgment in this case is being obtained and the Lord Chancellor will write to my hon. Friend. A copy of his letter will be placed in the Library.
