Prisons and Courts Bill abandoned

Posted on 21st April 2017

Government policies kicked into the long grass ahead of UK election.

The prime minister’s calling of a snap general election has led to the government scrapping controversial legislation that would reform the personal injury sector and overhaul the courts.

Following Theresa May’s shock announcement that an election will be held on 8 June, the leader of the House of Commons, David Lidington, confirmed that the Prisons and Courts Bill has ‘fallen’ due to a tight parliamentary timetable.
