MASS comment on the new Civil Liability Bill
We’re disappointed that the new ministerial team at the MoJ have not taken the time to consider the implications of these proposals and work constructively to address some of the practical issues that the proposed legislation throws up.
These reforms are unfair and fundamentally flawed in their rationale, and MASS will continue to make this case, whilst seeking to mitigate some of the worst consequences of the reforms.
Simon Stanfield, MASS Chair
Older News – but still important!
