Courts Service: Public Expenditure

Volume 704: debated on Wednesday 29 October 2008

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they will protect the right of access to civil justice in making decisions about public expenditure by the Ministry of Justice; and, if so, how. [HL5699]

The Government will maintain their commitment to access to justice through the provision of courts, tribunals, and legal aid and assistance. All areas of expenditure by government have to be in the context of delivering value for money for the taxpayer.
