HC Deb 27 October 1987 vol 121 c231W
Mr. Home Robertson

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will make a statement on his discussions with the Law Society of Scotland and other bodies about the legal aid system; and if he intends to propose any amendments to the legal aid regulations and legislation.

Lord James Douglas-Hamilton

My right hon. and learned Friend has received representations from the Law Society and others, and observations from the Scottish Legal Aid Board, on the operation of the new legal aid legislation. He hopes to reach a view on the various suggestions by the end of November.
