Neath Magistrates Consultation Decision

Following the announcement today from the Lord Chancellor that Neath Magistrates will close and work will move to Swansea, Neath MP Peter Hain said,

‘I am livid that the Lord Chancellor has jumped the gun without giving us a chance to challenge his figures which are faulty.  Frankly all the hard work put into the consultation seems a waste of time, as if they have made up their minds anyway.  I will be challenging this damaging decision with a detailed rebuttal of the government case.’
