‘The “creaking and outdated” justice system in England and Wales is failing society’s poorest, Michael Gove argued this week.
In his first speech since becoming Lord Chancellor and Secretary of State for Justice, he said that the best legal provision is the preserve of the wealthy, while victims of crime are “badly” let down. Mr Gove also said that the case for change had been “made most powerfully and clearly by the judiciary themselves”.
In this special edition of Law in Action, the Lord Chief Justice gives his reaction to Michael Gove’s speech.’
