EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)


These Regulations amend the Community Legal Service (Financial) Regulations 2000 so as to increase the income limits for the purposes of determining eligibility for services provided by the Legal Services Commission as part of the Community Legal Service. This is in line with the relevant uprating of social security benefits. In addition, they make various further minor changes with regard to financial eligibility.
