Alert me about debates like this

Resolution reported, That, for the purposes of any Act of the present Session to provide for the payment out of the legal aid funds of costs incurred by successive opponents of legally aided litigants, it is expedient to authorise the payment out of moneys provided by Parliament of the sums required to meet any increased charge falling on the Legal Aid Fund or the Legal Aid (Scotland) Fund by reason of any provision of the said Act enabling a court which decides proceedings against a legally aided party and in favour of a party not receiving legal aid to order the payment out of the appropriate legal aid fund of costs incurred in those proceedings by the party not receiving legal aid.

Resolution agreed to.
