13th Programme update

Last summer the  Law Commission called for ideas for its 13th Programme of Law Reform.

We received a huge amount of responses – with 215 unique projects suggestions – and are currently analysing the responses.

While no decisions have been made yet, the Law Commission had planned to seek the Lord Chancellor’s approval for the 13th Programme during June and July.  However, the election means that is no longer practicable.

We will continue to work up proposals with Government and hope to present a draft Programme to the Lord Chancellor very soon after the Summer recess.
