Opposing courts and tribunal fees

RB_Court_and_Tribunal_Fees_400x300.pngParliament debated the Justice Select Committee report on Courts and tribunal fees on Monday 4th March, where I spoke as Shadow Justice Secretary for the first time in the Chamber.

In the speech I said the following:

'Many of us know of this from our own experience as MPs, with our constituency advice sessions overflowing with people who do not know where to turn when they cannot access or afford legal advice or legal representation. Legal aid has been attacked, employment tribunal fees have been introduced, and fees are being increased in divorce proceedings and in immigration and asylum cases.'

I also concluded in explaining why, despite the vote being to allocate the Ministry of Justice its Budget, we were voting against the Government, when I said:

'Many of us know of this from our own experience as MPs, with our constituency advice sessions overflowing with people who do not know where to turn when they cannot access or afford legal advice or legal representation. Legal aid has been attacked, employment tribunal fees have been introduced, and fees are being increased in divorce proceedings and in immigration and asylum cases.'

    It’s really true:“Many of us know of this from our own experience as MPs, with our constituency advice sessions overflowing with people who do not know where to turn when they cannot access or afford legal advice or legal representation. Legal aid has been attacked, employment tribunal fees have been introduced, and fees are being increased in divorce proceedings and in immigration and asylum cases.”
