In making its changes, the Ministry of Justice applied a number of key principles: maintaining access to justice, delivering value for money, and ensuring operational efficiency. Savings achieved are being used to finance reform of the Courts and Tribunals service. The reform programme will change the ways court and tribunal services are delivered.

In particular, improved technology will be designed to enable people to access justice in simpler, easier and swifter ways. Provision for hearings in courtrooms will remain essential for the delivery of justice, but fewer interactions with the court and tribunals system are likely to happen in a courtroom.

Nonetheless, court closures are controversial. Many involve much-loved local historic buildings. In , the Ministry of Justice launched a consultation on the principles in should adopt in relation to any further closures it might argue are necessary. We expect an increase in the number of people using remote access to the courts which will reduce the use of court and tribunal buildings in the future. We make a commitment that we will not act on that assumption by proposing to close courts unless we have sound evidence that the reforms are actually reducing the use of those buildings.

The Ministry had proposed that the benchmark should be an ability to get there and return home within a day. Respondents argued this was too vague. We have also set out in much greater detail how we will measure this, what other factors we will consider — for example, the circumstances of users including those that are vulnerable, and the mitigations we can apply when users have difficulty attending court. The Court and Tribunal Design Guide published at www.

Digital support officers Digital Support Officers will support the introduction and longer-term support for digital services in local courts, as well as support which will assist users who do not wish or are unable to access online services.

This development was broadly welcomed. There were concerns regarding the resourcing of these services. Journey times to court should be reasonable and take into account the different needs and circumstances of those using the courts. Mitigations are available for those who experience difficulty attending court. We want to make sure that our buildings are in the best condition possible for those that use them and that they can be maintained at a reasonable cost to the taxpayer.

We will focus on the provision of multijurisdictional centres which are able to provide flexible access for the people who use our courts and tribunals.

We will harness the power of technology to offer enhanced access and greater flexibility. Indeed, at the end of October , the Justice Select Committee issued a very critical report on the whole court reform programme in general and the court closure programme in particular. There have been many critical comments in the professional legal press.

However as all those who come into contact with courts and tribunals will have to adapt to the new system, there will be nervousness ahead of proposed changes that have not yet been implemented.
