Yesterday afternoon in Parliament I secured and spoke in a Westminster Hall debate about the decision to shut the North Liverpool Community Justice Centre. Plans are to close the centre and move its workload to Sefton magistrates’ court in Bootle.
The Liverpool Daily Post reported on the story and you can read it here:

The decision to close the centre was rushed through by the Government. Many people did not have the chance to submit their views.
The Justice Centre has pioneered new approaches to offenders and provides key support services to those in debt, tackling drug addiction and victim and witness support.
This will be a big loss.
