Courts (London)

March 10, 2004

Question written on 10/03/2004

To ask the Parliamentary Secretary, Department for Constitutional Affairs what discussions he (a) has had and (b) plans to have with representatives of the Greater London Magistrates’ Court Association about court provision across London

Answered by Christopher Leslie

I have had discussions with representatives from the Greater London Magistrates’ Courts Authority (GLMCA) about court provision across London on 15 July 2003. Presently I have no further meetings arranged but would be happy to do so if required. Officials from my Department working in the Unified Courts Administration Programme have regular discussions with both the acting Justices’ Chief Executive and other senior managers of the GLMCA on all matters including court provision.
