Dissolution of Parliament: impact on Justice Committee's work explained

28 April 2017

The Justice Committee issues a short report explaining the impact of the dissolution of Parliament on its work. The Report sets out what the Committee had done in each of its current inquiries and other work, and what the Committee was planning to do in the near future.

Chair's comment

Bob Neill MP, Chair of the Committee, said:

"We hope this brief report will be of interest to our stakeholders and the wider public, as well as to our successor Committee in the next Parliament, in setting out what plans we had before our work was interrupted by the general election. It will be for the new Justice Committee in the next Parliament to decide whether to pick up where we have left off on our inquiries and other work on matters such as prison reform, disclosure of young people’s criminal records, Transforming Rehabilitation, and personal injury claims.

I also stress the Committee's thanks for the assistance it received in its work in the 2015 Parliament from all those who have given written and oral evidence or helped the Committee in other ways."
