Tories slashing civil liability compensation is creating two-tier justice system – Richard Burgon MP

Richard Burgon MP,  Labour’s Shadow Justice Secretary, responding to the Third Reading of the Civil Liability Bill said:

“This Bill is yet another example of the Tories’ undermining of access to justice. It will line the pockets of insurance industry executives by slashing compensation for genuine victims.

“From unlawful Employment Tribunal Fees to deep cuts to legal aid, the Tories’ are creating a two-tier justice system.

“The Tories intend to follow this Bill with further measures to make it harder for workers to get compensation for workplace injuries. Labour will oppose those measures all the way.”
