Regulation 5 - Appointment of medical and legal advisers
Question 5: Do you agree with the approach in Regulation 5?
The only point of concern here was in relation to the qualifications of the legal adviser as there is a broader group of solicitors who are "admitted" than those who are qualified to practice. It was felt that the requirements set out in the 1996 Regulations should be replicated.
Scottish Government response/action
The Regulation has been amended to reflect the requirement in the 1996 Regulations.
