On 3rd November Richard Fuller MP asks a question about the consultation on the Courts and Tribunals Service (I think). You may be aware that a number of courts are facing closure. Mr Fuller asked:
“Given that the consultation has now closed, will my hon. Friend commit to publishing a detailed financial analysis of the cost savings in each court area identified, and publish any errors in fact that have been highlighted in the consultation documents?”
He gets this answer from The Secretary of State for Justice (and other stuff) Shailesh Vara:
“I am grateful to my hon. Friend for his contribution. He has been very diligent in all that he speaks for in his constituency. We will, of course, abide by all the rules that Governments have traditionally followed in publishing information as and when necessary.”
“We will abide by the rules that Governments have traditionally followed”. So that’s a “fuck off Fuller”.
You can do better Mr Fuller and start to pin these ministers down, either in the house or outside.
