Not quite the same

In response to my pitiful plea about RSS feeds from OPSI, Scott pointed out that they could be found here: http://www.opsi.gov.uk/legislation/whatsnew.htm

So, I signed myself up for the ‘All Legislation’ feed, assuming it’d come in in the same format as on the Daily List, eg:

47
The Advice and Assistance (Scotland) Amendment Regulations 2008. – 2p.: 30 cm. – Enabling power: Legal Aid (Scotland) Act 1986, s. 12 (3). – Issued: 26.02.2008. Made: 20.02.2008. Laid before the Scottish Parliament: 21.02.2008. Coming into force: 07.04.2008. Effect: S.I. 1996/2447 amended. Territorial extent and classification: S. General. – £3.00 – 9780110815145. Order here

Instead, they come in like this:

The Advice and Assistance (Scotland) Amendment Regulations 2008: Web Version

By KENNY MACASKILL

These Regulations amend the Advice and Assistance (Scotland) Regulations 1996 to provide that a solicitor’s right to prior payment of fees and outlays out of any property recovered or preserved for a client in respect of advice and assistance shall not apply to the first £5,009 (increased from £4,821) recovered or preserved by virtue of certain family proceedings.

It’s a direct link to the legislation, which is good (if it works – at the moment it’s varying between taking me to a blank Bloglines page, or opening a duplicate of the Bloglines page I’m on, I know not why). And it’s nice that it’s giving the text of the Explanatory Note (not something usually included in a Daily List listing). But what’s not so good is that it’s stripped out all of the essential information I need to use – the legislation it’s been made under, its into force date, it’s effect…

Basically what’s being sent out then, is the title and Explanatory Note part of new legislation.

So, I’ve removed that subscription, and I’m back to trawling the Daily List, daily.
Acht well, it was a nice dream!

One thought on “Not quite the same”

  1. Why don’t you talk to Sally at the Inner Temple Library? And I mean TALK as in have an old-fashioned conversation! Not that I’ve done that but I’m a generalist not a specialist.Good luck.
