§ 20. Fiona Mactaggart
To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland when he will publish the implementation programme for the criminal justice review. 
§ Mr. Mandelson
The report of the Review of the Criminal Justice System was published in March this year and the period of consultation ended on 29 September. The Government fully endorse the general approach taken in the report. Informed by the consultation exercise we have now put in hand the detailed work needed to prepare legislation and an implementation plan. As the Prime Minister said on 5 May, these will both be published next April.
