Application for legal aid in the absence of the file

It will be a matter for the Board to make a decision having regard, in particular, to the provisions of section 24, section 28 (2)(b) and section 28 (4)(d). We cannot refuse to grant legal aid because fees have not been paid to a private solicitor. Nor can we use this a basis not to provide legal services.
