§ Mr. Martin
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what was the cost to public funds of bringing Dr. Yiamouyannis from the United States of America to give evidence in the case of Mrs. Catherine McColl v. Strathclyde Regional Council.
§ Mr. Ancram
The costs of Dr. Yiamouyannis are part of the total account assessed and paid by the legal aid central committee of the Law Society of Scotland, from the Legal Aid (Scotland) Fund. I do not consider that details should be provided of payments to individuals in legal aid cases.
