Courts and Tribunals (Judiciary and Functions of Staff) Bill introduced


The Courts and Tribunals (Judiciary and Functions of Staff) Bill was introduced in the House of Lords on Wednesday 23rd May.

The Lord Chief Justice Lord Burnett and the Senior President of Tribunals Sir Ernest Ryder said:

“We are  pleased that the Government is showing a commitment to progressing reforms of the justice system. Enabling court staff to deal with these matters will allow judges to concentrate on concerns which need their skill. While there is still much work to do, the  introduction of this Bill is a positive first step in legislation to deliver reform.”
