County Court System Urgently Needs Fixing Says PLA
The PLA surveyed its members on whether any improvements had been made to service standards by HMCTS (Her Majesty’s Courts & Tribunal Service) since the PLA’s last court users’ feedback report in 2015. A resounding 93.4% of respondents to the survey considered that the County Court system is not fit for purpose. All the figures show a slight worsening since 2015.
Kerry Glanville, chair of the PLA, and Mathew Ditchburn, chair of the PLA’s law reform committee, have met with HMCTS to discuss the main findings of the report and the PLA has issued a press release which has already resulted in significant media interest, including in The Times, EGi, CoStar News and the EG Diary Page.
