Tribunals Courts and Enforcement Act 2007

Volume 486: debated on Thursday 22 January 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice if he will place in the Library a copy of each of the responses to his Department's recent consultation on the implementation of the Tribunals, Courts and Enforcement Act 2007. (245975)

There have been several consultations by the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) relating to the Tribunals, Courts and Enforcement Act 2007. The consultation “Transforming Tribunals Implementing Part 1 of the Tribunals, Courts and Enforcement Act 2007” ran from November 2007 to February 2008. Responses were published on the 19 May 2008. A copy of the response document was placed in the Library of both Houses.

The consultation “Tribunals, Courts and Enforcement Act 2007— Eligibility for judicial appointment” ran from February to April 2008 and responses were published on the 27 August. The response document is available on the MoJ website at:

http://www.iustice.gov.uk/publications/consultations-with-response.htm.

A copy of the response document will be placed in the Library of both Houses.

The consultation “Administration and Enforcement Restriction Orders: setting the parameters” ran from January to April 2008 and a response paper will be published shortly.

As with most MoJ consultations, all of these consultation papers contained a standard confidentiality clause. The individual responses of consultees, that did not indicate to the contrary, would therefore be available in an anonymised version from the MoJ for the first two consultations mentioned above. The response paper for the “Administration and Enforcement Restriction Orders: setting the parameters” consultation has not yet been published.
