Leeds Magistrates

Asked if the Government was confident that this was a problem for just that particular court or were there concerns that there could be similar problems elsewhere, the PMS replied that it was a particular issue relating to Leeds Magistrate Court. As Jack Straw had said, he had asked the Chief Inspector of the Courts Administration to work with the chief inspectors of the Constabulary and the Crown Prosecution Service, to conduct a thorough review into what had happened.

Asked how concerned the Government was about the fact that people who should have been issued with warrants weren’t, the PMS said that obviously it was a matter of concern and that was why Jack Straw had taken action to establish what the full facts were and instigate the review.
