§ Mr. Garnier
To ask the Parliamentary Secretary, Lord Chancellor's Department what the cost was of the reorganisation of London's magistrates courts, pursuant to the Access to Justice Act 1999; and how many permanent jobs will be(a) lost or (b) created within the court service by virtue of the reorganisation. 
§ Jane Kennedy
The reorganisation of the Magistrates Courts Committees in London is still at an early stage of implementation. It is therefore not possible to provide a costing at this stage. Issues such as redundancy or the creation of new posts will be for the new Greater London Magistrates Courts Authority to determine.
