George Brandis announces funding restored to community legal centres.

The Attorney-General George Brandis confirmed this morning the government will increase spending on legal assistance by $56 million over three years; $39 million will go to community legal centres and $17 million to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander legal services.

Brandis says the community legal sector will be asked to prioritise domestic and family violence in the outlay of the increased funds.
