Valerie asks Justice Secretary about court closures

On Tuesday 12 November 2013 at Justice questions, Valerie Vaz MP asked the Justice secretary Chris Grayling about plans for further court closures.

Valerie asked:

“Could the justice secretary confirm there will be no further court closures which could undermine the administration of justice.”

The Justice Secretary replied:

“We will continue to review the court estate on an ongoing basis but at this moment in time I have no plans for substantial court closures. There may be occasional changes in the system, as we have seen most recently in Liverpool. But I am not planning major changes to the court estate at this time.”
