Is my right hon. and learned Friend aware that a litigant in a Court of Session action has to engage solicitors in his town of residence and solicitors in Edinburgh, and that all expert witnesses have to be taken through to Edinburgh, all of which means that time and money are consumed? Now that the Government are paying for all litigation does not that procedure mean sending up the costs, and can I press him to look at this matter again?
