Legal Aid In Magistrates Courts

EDM number 651 in 1991-92, proposed by Harriet Harman on 11/02/1992.

That this House notes with concern that lawyers and others involved in the day-to-day administration of criminal justice fear that proposals by the Lord Chancellor to introduce standard fees for magistrates' courts legal aid cases will lead to a significant reduction in the number of solicitors willing to undertake the work and will make it more difficult for solicitors to prepare cases thoroughly; believes that the administration of justice would be seriously impaired if those consequences came about; and believes that the proposals should not be implemented until the Royal Commission on Criminal Justice has had an opportunity to consider them and report.

This motion has been signed by a total of 45 MPs.
