Boris and Jeremy: Commit to funding UK justice

Today, we have forwarded on your letters to Boris Johnson, asking him to commit to our four Manifesto for Justice demands.

Thank you for lending your voice, and helping us show Boris Johnson that the public cares about the future of justice. We hope to hear from the new Prime Minister soon, and find out what he is going to do to address the problems plaguing our Criminal Justice System.

If not, we will keep speaking to him, and his Chancellor, and his Government, until they gives these issues the attention they deserve. We will also keep you informed of the next steps of our campaign.

In the meantime, I would like to urge you to continue to talk about our campaign, and share the Petition for Justice with friends, family and colleagues.

In the coming days, the FDA is writing to Boris Johnson and Jeremy Hunt, asking for their commitment to fund our justice system properly and commit to our asks.

Please send a message and add your support.

Why is this important?

As Boris Johnson and Jeremy Hunt fight it out to become the country's new Prime Minister, we need to put justice on the agenda.

Our demands would ensure a strong and fair justice system. We’re asking for:

1. A properly resourced CPS - To protect the public with a robust and effective prosecution service.
2. No more cuts to legal aid - To ensure that justice is available to all.
3. Investment in digital disclosure - To maintain public confidence in justice.
4. Competitive pay and fees - To recruit and retain lawyers for a sustainable criminal justice system.
