Answered on

9 July 2015

The Ministry is committed to playing its part in the government's deficit reduction plans and delivering significant savings for the taxpayer. Following the Chancellor's request to find additional in-year savings, we have put together a package that will enable us to drive efficiencies across the department. These savings will reduce the cost of justice to the taxpayer whilst creating a justice system that reflects the needs of its users.
