A mistrial was called inand the case was finally dismissed in April A new Green Form scheme was introduced for advice and assistance on any matter of English law on the basis of a simplified test of income and expenditure, which was carried out by the solicitor. In practice it is available only to less than one-quarter of the population. Back to top Commentary Section 28 enables any in-house legal practitioner to sign documents provided to or lodged with the Court where a party is a legally aided person or applicant for legal aid.

As a former chairman of the Law Commission I know that there has never been any very effective drive to simplify the law, and Parliament has shown no inclination or willingness to do anything other than add year by year to a mass of often fiendishly complicated legislation. Barristers and solicitors should receive adequate remuneration. The cooperative arrangements that were established by the LAC Act provided for Commonwealth and state and territory legal aid funding agreements, which began in The provision of legal aid is governed by the Access to Justice Act and supplementary legislation, most recently the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act Subject to my noble and learned friend himself, he is responsible for the drafting of this Bill and knows excactly what is in it. The money I mentioned to your Lordships is voted by the other place in Committee of Supply but it cannot all be appropriated by the spending department on the first day of the financial year.

On the whole, I thought that that was as much of an endorsement for the principle of the Bill as one could expect in the circumstances. By way of history, the Australian Government established the Legal Services Bureaux in to develop a national system. The Government have to decide what their explanation is before they start; whereas with the negative resolution procedure they need only to think of an explanation after the Prayer is tabled. That cannot be consistent with what my noble and learned friend said on the earlier occasion. There was no public announcement of what organisations in this position should do in the run up to the start date. The Fund publishes a quarterly newsletter called Busted!

Legal aid commissions use a mixed model to deliver legal representation services. It would seem that we are making improvements in the direction requested. Murphy recognised the urgent need for legal aid in order for justice to be equally available for all. My noble and learned friend has virtually agreed with that view.

The latter created a structure for the provision of criminal legal aid, which was continuing to increase in cost at an exponential rate. The Australian Government funds the provision of legal aid for Commonwealth family, civil and criminal law matters under agreements with state and territory governments and LACs.

He added, "Legal aid deserts appear when there are not enough local providers of legal assistance, normally because of the Legal Aid Agency's preference of fewer, larger agencies, meaning that if those pull out of a local area there is little provision left.
