Ministry of Justice facing cuts totalling 48% by 2024 – Richard Burgon

Richard Burgon MP, Labour’s Shadow of Secretary of State for Justice, responding to the Resolution Foundation analysis that the Ministry of Justice could face cuts of 48% for periods between 2009-10 and 2023-24:

“This analysis makes alarming reading for all who care about our Justice system.

“Far from the end of austerity, the Resolution Foundation warns that the Ministry of Justice could face cuts totalling 48% by 2024.

“Under the Tories, our justice system has already been cut to the bone. Further cuts will push justice from crisis to breaking point.”
