Minister’s legal aid refusal wrong

Regina (Main) v. Minister for Legal Aid

Queen’s Bench Division

“The refusal by the Minister of Legal Aid to authorise exceptional funding for the family of two victims of the Ufton Nervet train crash to be represented at the coroner’s inquest was flawed by her failure to recognise that the issues were not only of wide public interest but also a potential benefit for members of the public.”
