The Administrative Justice Steering Group, under the Chairmanship of Lord Philip, has today (6 October 2008) published its report on the Future Administration and Supervision of Tribunals in Scotland.
The Administrative Justice Steering Group (AJSG) was established in 2006. Its purpose was to commission research and act in an advisory capacity in the preparation of a final report to the Scottish Government on the administrative justice framework in Scotland taking account, among other things, of the likely impact of the Tribunals, Courts and Enforcement Act 2007.
The report published today is the first stage of the group's remit to (i) outline the current the current arrangements for tribunals operating in Scotland (ii) explore a range of options for future adminstration arrangements and (iii) consider the future role of the AJTC and its Scottish Committee in relation to the options identified. The report was published by the Scottish Consumer Council (now Consumer Focus Scotland) which provided policy support for the AJSG.
