Public Accounts Committee

Transforming courts and tribunals: progress review inquiry

Inquiry status: open - accepting written submissions

Scope of the inquiry

In 2016, HM Courts and Tribunals Service (HMCTS) launched a programme of reforms intended to reduce complexity and modernise the justice system. In July 2018, the Committee published a report into the initial stages of the programme. The Committee was critical of HMCTS and the Ministry of Justice, in particular the Committee expressed concerns about the scale and speed of the reforms and the ability of stakeholders to engage in, and influence the process. The Committee also concluded that further work was needed on the evaluating the impact and financial implications of the changes.

Based on the National Audit Office’s recent report, the PAC will look at the progress made to date.
