Dominic Raab – 2022 Comments on Nightingale Courts

The comments made by Dominic Raab, the Secretary of State for Justice, on 21 April 2022.

Getting the courts backlog down is a key priority for this Government so that we can ensure victims get the swift access to justice they deserve.

Alongside the extension of Nightingale Courts, digital hearings and investing significantly in criminal legal aid, we are removing the limit on sitting days for a second year to boost capacity and help drive down the Crown Court backlog of cases.
