Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations amend the Civil Legal Aid (Scotland) Regulations 1996 so as to add certain proceedings under Part 5 (medical treatment and research) of the Adults with Incapacity (Scotland) Act 2000 (asp 4) to the list of proceedings in regulation 14A of those Regulations. The availability of civil legal aid for the proceedings listed in that regulation is based on the resources of the incapable adult, not the applicant, where the applicant is a person having an interest in the personal welfare of that adult.
