Legal Aid gives you the opportunity to exercise your rights without going deep into depression of the unknown. Why scrap it? it's for the public, please give voice to those who genuinely needs it, those whose life will be in tatters if there is no Legal Aids!
They have to get their priorities right.It's the public's money,spend it for public use!
We the rock'n'roll band The Sunsets were able to successfully sue. Our former leader Shakin'Stevens. For group royaties he claimed were all his.We were stil cheated. But without Legal Aid we would have lost everything.

We the public need legal aid to fight our corner , for whatever reason. How else will the rights and wrong of the laws and justice prevale.
I applied for civil legal aid in Scotland to take legal action against someone who abducted my dog. Legal aid was refused because they considered it a 'waste of time to use public funds' on a dog! Now I'm having to conduct my own case myself...
As far as I can remember, I have known of the availability of Legal Aid. It is imperative that the availability remains since many may not be able to afford costs to pursue specific legal cases. I give consideration to individuals like the retired elderly, unsupported singles, those who experience various forms of discrimination etc.
I am disabled if they stop my money which I hope will never happen ( I will not be able to get legal aid to help me get my money back I will never work again had neck op in 06 from then on every time I see my Nero doctor it getting worse so I would need Legal aid to help me I think it's so wrong to stop this as it seems if you have money your alright but if you live on benefits you have not got a leg to stand on ??????
