Shelter briefing to legal aid bill committee

Housing and homelessness charity Shelter have produced a briefing document for MPs on the Legal Aid Bill Committee addressing the difficulties that the Bill will cause to those struggling with housing problems, who cannot afford to pay for a lawyer privately. YLAL is pleased to support the briefing.

Shelter labels the Legal Aid Bill, which curtails legal aid for many housing cases, a “green light to rogue landlords” saying that it “will tie the hands of advisers who are trying to prevent homelessness”.

The briefing is available to download here. The Legal Aid Bill can be accessed here.
