Liberal Democrat motion on Justice and Security Bill

September 25, 2012 6:29 PM
Originally published by UK Liberal Democrats

Commenting, Liberal Democrat Advocate General for Scotland, Lord (Jim) Wallace said:

"Liberal Democrats have made their unease about the Justice and Security Bill clear in the past and have confirmed this today. They have welcomed the significant changes that Nick Clegg has already secured, for example removing inquests from scope and restricting it to national security cases only, but they have made clear that they still have deep concerns.

"It has always been the Government's intention that closed courts should only ever be used as a last resort and in a very small minority of cases where the alternative is no justice at all. We will continue to work with parliamentarians from all sides, to ensure that the principles of open justice are protected."
