We may terminate a grant of legal aid under Regulation 30 in the following circumstances –

  • where it is clear the assisted person is not financially eligible for legal aid and if this was as a result of capital held that he/she can afford to proceed without legal aid ; or
  • where there is no longer probable cause, or where it is no longer reasonable to give legal aid.
  • Termination in these circumstances does not affect the assisted person’s status during the period while the grant of legal aid was in force, and does not entitle us to recover the cost of the case to the Legal Aid Fund, other than any previously assessed contribution or any funds that, at the conclusion of the case fall to be regarded as property recovered or preserved.
