‘Swift and Sure Justice: the Government’s Plans for Reform of the Criminal Justice System’.
The White Paper sets out the Government’s programme of reforms to the criminal justice system in England and Wales. It forms part of the Government’s much wider programme of reform across crime and justice.
The reforms in this White Paper focus on the points where work passes between criminal justice agencies and are designed to enable them to work together more efficiently and effectively to deliver services which are:
swift: so that the low level, straightforward and uncontested cases are dealt with promptly and efficiently; and
sure: so that the system can be relied upon to deliver punishment and redress fairly and in accordance with the law and public expectation.
