The Week In Justice 26 Mar 2017

This week was obviously dominated by the tragic terrorist attack on Westminster which resulted in a number of reports not being published out of respect for the victims.

The week was still noteworthy for an unprecedented public attack on the Justice Secretary Liz Truss by the Lord Chief Justice which included the suggestion that the MoJ has cut so many senior policy staff that mistakes are being made.

Two private probation companies used their appearance at the Justice Committee TR inquiry to say they could walk away from their contracts unless payment levels were changed.

Despite a consensus that large prisons are harder to manage, the MoJ announced the building of four new Titans.

There were a number of free access research articles published too.
