EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)
    These Regulations amend Schedule 2 to the Civil Legal Aid (Scotland) Regulations 1987 which sets out the rules for computing the disposable income of an assisted person for civil legal aid purposes.
    The Regulations reduce the deduction to be made where an assisted person has a spouse to the difference, as at the date when the computation period begins, between the income support allowance for a couple where both members are aged not less than 18 and the income support allowance for a single person aged not less than 25.
    The Regulations also reduce the deduction to be made where an assisted person has a dependent child or relative to the income support allowance appropriate to the age of the child or relative at the date when the computation period begins.
    The amendments made by the Regulations only apply to any application for civil legal aid which is made to the Scottish Legal Aid Board on or after 12th April 1993.
