New Law Centre Policy Responses
Four new policy responses from the Law Centre are now online. They can be found on the Policy Response page, or by clicking on the title below:
The Law Centre is in favour of extending the right to request flexible working to all employees. However, we argue that the right is relatively weak and should be strengthened if it is to bring about positive change to work practices.
We welcome the Legal Services Commission’s commitment to ensure that public funds are directed at targeting social need. We urge the Commission to take this work forward by developing community legal services and reviewing the financial eligibility for legal aid.
Comments on the development of the spending priorities, policy framework & funding programmes for the Dormant Bank & Building Society Accounts Scheme in NI.
We oppose UKBA’s proposal to introduce a points based test for citizenship.
