We will begin reviewing the changes made by LASPO by submitting a post-legislative memorandum of LASPO as a whole to the Justice Select Committee in the coming months. This will provide an initial assessment of the extent to which LASPO met its objectives. We will then begin work on a more substantive review of the reforms of Part 1 and Part 2 LASPO. We are committed to completing this review by April 2018.
