One in 200 applications for discrimination legal aid successful

The Equality and Human Rights Commission has issued a report saying that 1 in 200 applications for legal aid for discrimination resulted in legal representation being obtained.  I'm surprised it's that high.  The Civil Legal Aid Gateway is specifically designed to be inaccessible as it is a bureaucratic obstacle course that even most non-disabled people would struggle to get through.  It was brought in to coincide with more and more discrimination by the Government itself, particularly in social security.
