Written answers (Question to Justice)

I wish to refer the Deputy to the Civil Legal Act 1995 and the Civil Legal Aid Regulations 1996 - 2013 which set out the basis concerning financial eligibility for civil legal aid.

Information concerning financial eligibility is also available on the Legal Aid Board's website and may be accessed via the following link: http://www.legalaidboard.ie/lab/Publishing.nsf/Content/How_do_I_qualify.
