Solicitors and probation staff strike

By Richard Wright

Saturday, April 5, 2014

 

AN ISLE of Wight courts walkout took place this week.

It was led by probation officers, protesting at government plans to privatise 70 per cent of the service, and some solicitors demonstrating against Legal Aid cuts.

The Ministry of Justice said cuts were inevitable in the current financial climate and the strike was said not to have caused major disruption to the administration of justice.
