HC Deb 11 June 1997 vol 295 c451W
Mr. Wallace

To ask the Parliamentary Secretary, Lord Chancellor's Department what plans the Government have to extend the eligibility for civil legal aid to hearing before(a) industrial tribunals and (b) social security appeal tribunals; and if he will make a statement. [2843]

Mr. Hoon

There are no immediate plans to increase the scope of the legal aid scheme. There is to be a review of civil justice and legal aid and we will be able to consider the current scope of the scheme in the light of the outcome of that review.
