The government has announced major changes to the system of civil legal aid in England and Wales.

Speaking in the Commons, Justice Secretary Kenneth Clarke said civil legal aid would only be routinely available in cases where life or liberty is at stake.

Funding for a wide range of disputes, including some divorce cases and clinical negligence would be axed.

The proposals are intended to cut the legal aid bill by £350m a year by 2015.

At present, anyone with assets worth less than £8,000 qualifies for legal aid – with those worth up to £3,000 paying nothing and others expected to make a contribution.

Under the new system, anyone with assets worth more than £1,000 will have to pay at least £100 towards their legal costs.
