HC Deb 10 July 1987 vol 119 c276W
Mr. Bermingham

asked the Attorney-General what proposals he has to instruct the legal aid authorities to ensure that persons detained in custody and transferred from their local remand prison are entitled to be visited by their solicitors and advisers so that their cases can be prepared for trial.

The Attorney-General

I am not aware of any problems concerning legal aid for solicitors to visit clients transferred away from their local remand prison. If the hon. Gentleman has a particular case in mind he should write to the Lord Chancellor.
