Reform of Legal Aid in England and Wales - LITRG response

Published on 14 February 2011

LITRG welcomes the opportunity to contribute to the consultation of the Ministry of Justice on the reform of legal aid.

The timing of these proposals is particularly unfortunate and we fear that the proposals to remove welfare benefits (which includes tax credits) from the scope of legal aid will have serious and damaging effects upon the ability of low-income people to access justice.
