Bob Neill MP: Legal Aid debate in Parliament


If we believe in, as we all do in any legal process, believe in following the evidence, if the evidence indicates that thing’s have gone too far the other way and there’s a chance to change it, there’s not shame in admitting that, and in fact it will be honest politics, good government and entirely consistent with I know the spirit that the minister and her ministerial colleagues seek to bring to this approach to accept that where we can put things right it’s better to accept the position act on the evidence as it now is and make sure that we have a better basis for legal funding and access to justice going forward.
