MPs on the Justice Select Committee will today question the new Commissioner for Victims and Witnesses, Louise Casey, about the work of her office and concerns she has raised about the probation service.
The Committee will be asking her:
- How her role can add value to existing voices of victims' charities?
- How Ministry of Justice cuts and Government’s proposals for sentencing and rehabilitation will impact on victims and witnesses?
- Whether her views on the value of community sentences have changed since taking up her role?
The session will take place in Committee Room 8 at 10.30am.
