Future Standards Of Justice

EDM number 714 in 1993-94, proposed by Martin Redmond on 02/03/1994.

That this House condemns the Government's total indifference to the immense disparity in sentences imposed by judges and magistrates, ranging from 150 hours community service for a fraud of ú30 million to imprisonment of pensioners for failure to pay a small amount of community charge, with the result that confidence in the judiciary has now reached an all-time low; and therefore calls for urgent action to reintroduce a basic standard of justice.

This motion has been signed by a total of 41 MPs.
