Section 28 of the Youth Justice and Criminal Evidence Act 1999 has been part commenced in Leeds, Liverpool and Kingston since December 2013. We are upgrading the technology that will record and play back recordings of hearings, supporting further roll out of Section 28. Testing of the quality of recordings has shown that progress has been made, supporting a plan to roll out Section 28 commencement to additional Crown Court sites during 2019. HMCTS continues to test the technology which supports these hearings, to ensure that it is right for some of the most vulnerable people in society.
