Save UK Justice - 4 days to get 20,000 signatures!
The MOJ should not proceed with their plans to reduce access to justice by depriving citizens of legal aid or the right to representation by the Solicitor of their choice.
The proposals will affect us all, but this has particular relevance to the specialist BME VAWG sector. Plans include the introduction of a residency test which will deny access to legal aid to those who have not been lawfully in the UK for 12 months. This will affect victims of gender-based violence, torture victims and trafficked women and children.
We have 4 days to get 20,000 signatures to force a parliamentary debate.
