Scunthorpe Magistrates' Court to close

magistrates.jpgIn spite of the considerable local opposition to the closure, just before the Commons broke for recess the government sneaked out the decision to close our Scunthorpe courts. 67 other courts around the country will also close. 

I interrupted Commons Business to make a point of order bemoaning both what was being done and the way it was being done.  The reaction from the Government side showed that it's not just Labour MPs that see this as an attack on local access to justice.
