I have recently had a meeting with a delegation from Coventry magistrates courts committee to discuss the proposed amalgamation of the Birmingham, Coventry and Solihull magistrates courts committees.
I have also had meetings with the Magistrates Association, the Central Council of Magistrates Courts Committees, the Justices' Clerks Society, the Standing Conference of Justices' Chief Executives and Clerks to Magistrates Courts Committees, the Association of Magisterial Officers, and Her Majesty's chief inspector of the magistrates courts service, at which the question of the Government's policy on the amalgamation of magistrates courts committees formed part of the agenda.
