Civil Legal Aid (Procedure) Regulations 2012 — Motion to Regret — 27 Mar 2013 at 14:31

Lord Prescott was absent

Moved by Baroness Scotland of Asthal

That this House regrets that the Civil Legal Aid (Procedure) Regulations 2012 (SI 2012/3098) fail to deliver on Her Majesty’s Government’s expressed promise to provide adequate legal aid provision for victims of domestic violence; that significant numbers of victims will not be able to satisfy the evidential criteria, contrary to Her Majesty’s Government’s expressed intent, resulting in a diminution of access to justice; and that, as a result, domestic violence victims will be exposed to an increased risk of injury and death.
