Criminal Justice Bill - Call for Evidence

The Criminal Justice Bill was formally introduced to the Northern Ireland Assembly on 25 June 2012 and received its Second Reading on 3 July 2012. The Bill has now been referred to the Committee for Justice which has responsibility for the Committee Stage of the Bill.

The Committee therefore wishes to hear views from all interested parties in order to assist it with the scrutiny of the Bill.

Any organisation or individual with an interest in this consultation is invited to submit evidence to the Committee by e-mail to or by post to:

The Committee Clerk, Room 242, Parliament Buildings, Ballymiscaw, Stormont, Belfast BT4 3XX.

Your written submission should be structured to address specific clauses and schedules of the Bill and, if appropriate, should include any amendments you wish to propose to the text.

If you do not have access to the internet or e-mail facilities or you have any other enquiries, please contact the Committee Office on 028 9052 1629 or 028 9052 1582.

The closing date for submissions is Friday 31 August 2012.
