(This note is not part of the Regulations)
These Regulations amend the Legal Advice and Assistance (Scotland) Regulations 1973.
The Legal Aid (Scotland) Act 1967 as applied by the Legal Advice and Assistance Act 1972 continues in effect, despite its general repeal by the Legal Aid (Scotland) Act 1986, in respect of applications for advice and assistance which were determined before commencement of the 1986 Act on 1st April 1987 (see paragraph 3(1) of Schedule 4 to the 1986 Act). It is thus only in respect of advice and assistance following upon such applications that these Regulations increase the fees.
These Regulations amend the sums specified in Schedule 2 to the principal Regulations so as to increase the fees allowable to solicitors in respect of work done in connection with the provision of legal advice or assistance by around 9%.
1967 c. 43; section 14A was inserted by section 3 of the Divorce Jurisdiction, Court Fees and Legal Aid (Scotland) Act 1983 (c. 12); sections 14A and 15 were extended by section 6 of the Legal Advice and Assistance Act 1972 (c. 50), as amended by the said Act of 1983, Schedule 1, paragraph 17.
