HC Deb 27 November 2002 vol 395 c290W
10. Brian White

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if he will make a statement on the implementation of the criminal justice review. [81608]

Mr. Browne

The Criminal Justice Review aims to create a more modern, effective, transparent and accountable criminal justice system for Northern Ireland. The Government intend to publish a revised Implementation Plan for the Review in early 2003. The revised plan will provide details of progress made against its 294 recommendations. Good progress is already being made in a number of areas, supported by the Justice (Northern Ireland) Act 2002. The revised plan represents another significant step towards the full implementation of the Belfast Agreement.
