The Legal Services Bill briefing

Briefing for MSPs on The Legal Services Bill which was passed at stage 3 on October 6th 2010.

Citizens Advice Scotland (CAS) welcomes the increased access and choice in the provision of legal services as set out in the Legal Services (Scotland) Bill and supports new provisions in the Bill that strengthen schemes and regulations on consumer protection. CAS also strongly supports provisions that would modify section 26(2) of the Solicitors (Scotland) Act 1980 and which were unanimously approved by all members of the Justice Committee at the Scottish Parliament.
