Law Commission under review
The Secretary of State has announced a review of the Law Commission.
The review is part of a rolling three-year Cabinet Office programme designed to assess the form, function and governance of non-departmental public bodies.
Chairman of the Law Commission, Sir David Lloyd Jones, said: “This review provides us with a welcome opportunity to hear from many of the people and organisations who have a stake in our law reform work and learn from them what they think of the Law Commission and the way in which we conduct our business. It will give the Commission itself a valuable opportunity to set before Government and the citizen the vital work we do in keeping the law of England and Wales as fair, modern, simple and cost effective as possible.
“We encourage all our stakeholders to participate in this review.
“Triennial Reviews are part of the process by which Government departments scrutinise arms’-length bodies. We have been working with the Ministry of Justice on their preparations for this review and will continue to work closely with them as it progresses.”
The consultation is open from 9 January until 6 February 2013.
