Question:

822 Dr. Upton asked the Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform the total legal aid paid to solicitors for each of the years 1997 and 1998 in County Louth. [1498/99]

I propose to take Questions Nos. 818 to 822, inclusive, together.

As the Deputy will be aware, my Department is responsible for the administration of the criminal legal aid scheme which is provided for under the Crinimal Justice (Legal Aid) Act, 1962, and regulations made under it. My Department also has responsibility for civil legal aid which is provided for under the Civil Legal Act, 1995, which is administered by the Legal Aid Board.

In relation to civil legal aid there are law centres in the counties and cities of Cork, Limerick and Galway, and in counties Kerry and Louth. These law centres are staffed by solicitors who are employees of the board. Consequently no fees are paid in respect of civil legal aid in these counties.

In relation to the fees paid to solicitors under the criminal legal aid scheme in the counties and cities of Cork, Limerick and Galway and in Counties Kerry and Louth, the position is that records are not kept in a way which would make this information easily available. It could only be compiled by the allocation of scarce staff resources, which would not be warranted and which would inevitably have the effect of delaying other services.

However a complete list of all payments under the criminal legal aid scheme for the years 1997 and 1998 to all solicitors in the State is enclosed with this answer.

Total Gross Expenditure (Excluding VAT, RET. TAX and EXPENSES) for solicitors under the legal aid scheme (District and Higher Courts) for the period 1/1/97 to 31/12/97 in payee order.

John Gormley

Question:

823 Mr. Gormley asked the Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform if his attention has been drawn to the fact that there are just over 80 solicitors employed by the Legal Aid Board for over 800,000 social welfare recipients likely to be entitled to free legal aid on means test compared with 5,000 in private practice; if further funding would help reduce waiting lists; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [1521/99]

John Gormley

Question:

824 Mr. Gormley asked the Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform if his attention has been drawn to recent reports (details supplied) that 90 per cent of cases from the free legal advice centres were family law cases and this imbalance detracted from the other services provided from the centres; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [1522/99]

John Gormley

Question:

825 Mr. Gormley asked the Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform the plans, if any, he has to provide extra funding for free legal aid centres in order to cut the waiting lists; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [1523/99]

I propose to take Questions Nos. 823 to 825, inclusive, together.

The function of the Legal Aid Board is to provide, within its resources and subject to the other provision of the Civil Legal Aid Act, 1995, legal aid and advice in civil cases to persons who satisfy the requirements of that Act. Since the inception of the scheme of civil legal aid and advice in 1979, and more recently the Civil Legal Aid Act, 1995, a majority of legally aided cases have been in the family law area. The number of such cases where legal aid is sought has increased significantly over the years, reflecting the changing attitudes in Ireland to marriage breakdown and the reform of family law. Nonetheless, of the total number of legally aided cases dealt with by the Legal Aid Board, the percentage which relate to family law has remained relatively constant over the years.

According to the board's annual report for 1998, about 96 per cent of court cases and 90 per cent of legal advice cases handled by the board's solicitors in that year related to family law matters. While the board gives the necessary degree of priority, where required, to certain classes of actions, for example, child abduction proceddings, domestic violence, Statute of Limitations etc., it does not discriminate against any class of action which conforms to the provisions of the 1995 Act. That there is a preponderance of family law cases is indicative only of the nature of the legal services sought by applicants from the board.
I am aware that comparision has been made between the relative strengths of the solicitor staff available to the Legal Aid Board and the numbers who are in private practice. It is a concern of mine as Minister with responsibility for the Legal Aid Board that applicants for civil legal aid and advice should have available to them an effective service capable of meeting their needs without undue delay. Waiting times at the law centres are continually reviewed by the board, and where these times, for whatever reasons, become excessive the position is examined by the board with a view to taking remedial action. In order to combat the increase in waiting times I made additional resources available to the Legal Aid Board in 1998 and again in 1999. I increased the grant-in-aid by 15 per cent in 1998 to £9.615 million, and I am further increasing the allocation this year by 14 per cent to £10.953 million. In addition a further allocation of £1 million is being allocated for legal services for asylum seekers bringing the total allocation to £11.953 million, an increase of 24 per cent over last year. Last July I approved 25 additional posts for the Legal Aid Board. Of these, 17 posts, including five solicitor posts were for law centres. In addition I sanctioned the making permanent of six temporary staff, including three relief solicitors. The board, which has sanction for 89 solicitor posts, currently employs 86 solicitors. A competition is currently under way to fill the remaining three posts and the board is confident it will have its full complement of 89 solicitors in place shortly. I am confident that these allocations should help to alleviate the situation in the law centres.
