Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These regulations are consequential on the Legal Advice and Assitance (Scope) Regulations 2001 (S.I. 2001/ ), which make assistance by way of representation (ABWOR) available to a person in respect of whom an application is made for a warrant of further detention, or an extension of such a warrant, under Schedule 8 to the Terrorism Act 2000. They amend the Legal Advice and Assistance Regulations 1989 (S.I. 1989/340) so that, in relation to such cases:

(a)the normal provisions relating to applications for advice and assitance do not apply;

(b)ABWOR is available without regard to the applicant’s financial resources; and

(c)ABWOR does not require the approval of the Legal Services Commission.

(1)

1988 c. 34. Sections 34 and 43 were amended by the Courts and Legal Services Act 1990 (c. 41). Schedule 18 paragraphs 60 and 63 of and the Family Law Act 1996 (c. 27), Schedule 8 paragraph 44. Sections 9, 34 and 43 are repealed (together with other provisions) by Part I of Schedule 15 to the Access to Justice Act 1999 (c. 22), which was brought into force on 1st April 2000 by the Access to Justice Act 1999 (Commencement No. 3, Transitional Provisions and Savings) Order 2000 (S.I. 2000/774), but subject to savings in respect (inter alia) of assistance by way of representation relating to actual or contemplated criminal investigations or proceedings.
