Service Justice System

Volume 498: debated on Monday 26 October 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what progress he has made in developing governance arrangements for the operation of each part of the Service Justice System; and what external stakeholder groups he has identified to participate in such arrangements. (295197)

Arrangements for the governance of the whole Service justice system were approved by Ministers in December 2007. The purpose of governance is to set direction, provide oversight and facilitate cooperation between stakeholders within and outside the Ministry of Defence. These functions are undertaken by the Service Justice Board and a supporting executive group. Stakeholders outside the Ministry of Defence include the Attorney-General’s Office, the Ministry of Justice and the Judge Advocate General.
