Jack Straw Announces Further Reform to Family Courts

Jack Straw has announced further reform to the Family Courts System, by way of greater openness. The changes are contained in a draft bill and will permit much wider reporting of proceedings, on the proviso that anonymity will be maintained. It will be interesting to see how that works in practice. The Press Release can be found here on the Ministry of Justice website.
