§ Mr. Redmond
To ask the Parliamentary Secretary, Lord Chancellor's Department what actions he is taking to ensure judges understand their responsibilities on 5W sentencing under the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994.
Mr. John M. Taylor
Judges receive copies of statutes and statutory instruments and keep themselves up to date on new and amended legislation. During seminars, and through its bulletin, the Judicial Studies Board draws the attention of judges to relevant sentencing information.
