Legal aid, Labour and pushing for ‘a manifesto of hope’

23 September 2014

Speaking in Manchester at a Labour Party Conference fringe event entitled ‘Justice for All’ earlier this week, shadow justice minister Andy Slaughter MP said Chris Grayling and the Ministry of Justice were ‘reckless’ and ‘out of control’, and there was no doubt that the political agenda of the current government had been to obstruct the ordinary’s citizen’s access to justice. Garden Court North Chambers’ Natalie Wilkins has written this report for The Justice Gap.

What next?

For anyone who cares about legal aid the message is clear: ask those who want your vote what they will do for justice if elected. This campaign fight is not over. More ideas for action are on the Justice Alliance website here.
