Reforming civil justice

Posted on June 14th, 2011 in Parliamentary News

Keith Vaz (Leicester East) (Lab): I think that what the Lord Chancellor has said today has cross-party support. May I take him back to his comments about mediation? Is he suggesting that there should be mandatory mediation for very small claims? If he is, we have a problem with the number of qualified mediators. Will he look at this issue because it is all very well referring these cases, but we need the mediators to be able to deal with them?
