HC Deb 14 June 1988 vol 135 c100W
Mrs. Dunwoody

To ask the Attorney-General how many cases which related to eviction from the family home were recorded in the Cheshire area during the current year; and how many of those received legal aid.

The Attorney-General

During 1987, a total of 3,914 actions for possession of residential premises were entered at county courts in Cheshire, although only some of these will have resulted in a subsequent application for a warrant of eviction. Information on how many of the parties to these actions received legal aid is not held centrally and could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.
