YouGov poll on public attitudes to legal aid.
Fieldwork Time: 1st - 2nd April 2015
• 84% of people say legal aid and a fair trial are a British fundamental right. (82% say health care at the point of use)
• 89% of people say legal aid is important.
These facts nail the lie that people do not care about legal aid as a political issue. It is an important and fundamental issue for politicians to note. Legal aid campaigners speak for the people. There MUST be proper funding for legal aid. It is a right not a benefit.
