Legal aid reform plan deprives already vulnerable people, says Erdington MP

 

Court action which forced Birmingham City Council to continue providing care for 4,100 adults would have been impossible under Government plans to cut the legal aid bill, an MP has claimed.

Jack Dromey (Lab Erdington) spoke out against proposals to make it harder to obtain free legal advice and representation.

He said the high-profile High Court case in which a judge ruled cuts to social care in Birmingham had been “unlawful” would never have happened under the new system.
