For example, What is the overlap or general relationship between "no recourse to public funds" and eligibility for legal aid?
Is legal aid encompassed by NRPF? It surely can't be in an absolute sense, in that even immigration advice itself until the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act 2012 (LASPO 2012) was covered by legal aid. Legal aid agency seems organised as an entirely separate affair from Dept of Work & Pensions, and I suppose there is likely a statutory basis for this. But what is the connection between these if any at all? Or is access to justice considered comparably to access to A&E and GP, a matter of fundamental and inviolable human rights?
Obviously if one is arrested one is entitled to duty scheme solicitors advice which is publicly funded through the LAA, so NRPF seemingly cannot be absolute.
