To ask Her Majesty’s Government, further to the Written Answer by Lord McNally on 11 December (WA 114–15), whether the annual local assessment of judicial needs is published; and, if so, whether they will place a copy in the Library of the House.

The annual local assessment of judicial needs is neither collated centrally at present, nor published. The ‘Protocol to support Judicial Deployment in the Magistrates’ Courts’ was used for the first time this year and the Senior Presiding Judge’s Magistrates’ Liaison Group will be making an assessment of the initial operation of the Protocol in the New Year.
