The Government has ensured that legal aid for housing advice remains available for all cases in Wales which are in scope and where both the means and merits criteria are met. The Legal Aid Agency (LAA) takes active steps to ensure adequate provision of housing advice around Wales, reviewing capacity and accessibility quarterly. At present all procurement areas within Wales have provision, but if issues are identified the LAA moves quickly to safeguard provision in specific localities, running tenders as appropriate to maintain continuity of service.
