Legal Aid Impact Test
The National Test Programme will not have any impact either on an individual claimant's access to legal aid or on the legal aid fund.
Schemes which are run under retained EU law, i.e. the domestic continuation of the EU CAP schemes, have an appeals process which allows individuals to appeal (through the Land Court) on eligibility for payments made under them. The Programme is not being run under the same legislation (i.e. retained EU law), and therefore does not attract this right of appeal. If an individual is not satisfied with the decision made by the Scottish Government about their claim under the Programme, they may submit a request for a review of that decision. This process will not require any legal representation.
