I too support the regulations, but the House ought to bear in mind the fact that in the last few years the cost of legal advice and assistance has gone up dramatically, from £11·9 million in 1979–80 to an estimated £57·4 million in 1984–85. That is a considerable increase in the cost of this scheme.
