9. Legal Aid Impact Test
Proposals within this consultation that would be the subject of regulation follow established process and premise. It is not anticipated that there will be any greater demands placed on the legal system by this proposal. Accordingly, it is not considered that there will be any effect on individuals' right of access to justice through availability of legal aid or on possible expenditure from the legal aid fund.
This will be reviewed further following consultation and this aspect of proposals will be verified in discussion with officials from the Scottish Government Access to Justice Team prior to production of a final impact assessment.
