star this property answer text <p>HM Courts and Tribunals Service (HCMTS) is taking positive steps to reduce the waiting time for appeals to be heard in the Social Security and Child Support (SSCS) jurisdiction. In 2018, 232 medical members and 118 disability-qualified members were additionally appointed to the SSCS jurisdiction and an extra 129 fee-paid judges have recently been appointed. The SSCS jurisdiction will also benefit from 100 salaried judges and 170 fee-paid judges being recruited across tribunals more widely. In addition, HMCTS is developing a new digital system with a view to enabling speedier processing of appeals and a better service for all parties to the proceedings. Case-management “triage” sessions are also being conducted, with the aim of reducing the number of cases that need to progress to an oral hearing.</p> more like this

Amongst the topics discussed have been their ambitions for greater devolution in the CJS.</p><p> </p><p>Together with the Home Office, Ministry of Justice officials are exploring how PCCs and Mayors with PCC powers can play a greater role in the wider CJS. The strengths that PCCs currently bring to policing could be of real benefit to the wider CJS, and we are keen to explore this further.</p><p> </p> more like this
