answer text <p>The Government has a responsibility to make sure that those in the greatest hardship and at the times of greatest need, can secure access to justice. This is a responsibility that we take very seriously.</p><p>There are a number of avenues of dispute resolution available to individuals facing disability discrimination to try and resolve issues by agreement. These include the use of Advisory Conciliation and Arbitration Service (ACAS), judicial or other mediation.</p><p>Those facing disability discrimination in an employment or education setting may also seek redress through the tribunal system. Our £1bn court modernisation programme has already started improving the experience of those who use and need our courts and tribunals, by introducing 21st Century technology, online services and digital working, while making sure justice remains accessible. These reformed services will transform how people experience the justice system, with digital services making justice more accessible and straightforward.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>

answer text <p>The Government is committed, as set out on the 26 June at the Justice Select Committee and in the 2017 manifesto, to building up to 10,000 modern and decent prison places to replace old, expensive and unsuitable accommodation. This was reaffirmed by the Chancellor in the 2018 Budget, committing the Government to delivering the first two new prisons at Wellingborough and Glen Parva through public capital. Funding routes will be explored, including through private investment, for the delivery of the remaining prison places. The financing models, timetable and costs for these will be dependent on the relevant value for money and affordability tests, planning permissions and commercial negotiations.</p><p> </p><p>We believe in a balanced approach to custodial services provision, which includes a mix of public, voluntary and private sector involvement. This approach has been shown to work, providing excellent services for the public and value for money for taxpayers.</p> more like this
