Family Courts

Volume 485: debated on Tuesday 9 December 2008

20. To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what plans his Department has to increase transparency and accountability in the family courts. (240244)

This is an important area of policy about which people have strong views, and one that we are examining with care and consideration. That is why we have consulted twice on how we could improve transparency in family courts. The response paper to the last consultation, including further details of the pilot to provide written judgments when a final order is made in family cases, will be published soon and details of it will be announced to Parliament.
