Justice Questions

George Eustice MP questioned the Justice Secretary in Parliament today as to what his department is doing to curb the growing compensation culture in the country.

George asked, "Does the Secretary of State agree that we need to do more to curb the compensation culture in this country and that one way of doing so would be to ensure that plaintiffs incur some form of financial risk in bringing their case so that they focus their minds on the merits of their case?", to which Justice Secretary, Kenneth Clarke, responded "I am glad to say that I agree with my hon. Friend’s every word. There is a compensation culture. We are taking practical steps to get it back to common sense."
