UK: COUNTER-TERRORISM LICENSING POLICY – HM TREASURY REVOKES 3 TERRORISM GENERAL LICENCES AND REPLACES 1

On 11 January, HM Treasury revoked 3 general licences which related to the provision of insurance and the payment of legal fees by third parties for counter- terrorism regimes. It has also revoked and replaced the general licence relating to legal aid.  This general Licence permits the Legal Aid Agency (LAA) to make payments to solicitors representing a designated person where it has assessed that the individual is eligible for legal aid, and for those funds to be applied by the solicitors to meet the legal costs incurred in the course of advising and representing the designated person. No funds may be made directly available to a designated person under this licence.

The General Licence for legal aid is at –
