As the political parties prepare for the 2015 general election, much work still remains in restoring the public finances, and another round of cuts is inevitable. In the case of justice, the authors of Magistrates Work! explain how savings can be made and the principles governing the operation of a fair justice system can be protected.
The co-authors, Simon Reevell MP, Professor John Howson and Stanley Brodie QC, take stock of the recent closure of the magistrates’ courts, cut from 330 courts in 2009 to 240 in 2014. The consequences have been lamentable.

This week, Politeia published Zero Plus: The Principles of EU Renegotiation by leading EU lawyer and government legal adviser, Martin Howe QC. As author of Politeia's Safeguarding Sovereignty, Mr Howe inspired the European Union Act 2011. Howe's latest proposals have the potential to redefine the terms of Britain's EU debate.
Here Is The City's coverage of the pamphlet gives an extensive review of Howe's thesis.
