Government encourages greater use of Mediation

Wed, 06 October 2010

In a written answer in House of Commons 13th September 2010

Jonathan Djanogly Parliamentary Under Secretary of State (HM Courts Service and Legal Aid), Justice:

'People often find themselves involved in court actions when their disagreements might be better resolved between themselves at a much earlier stage and with a more satisfactory outcome, through processes such as mediation, rather than the 'winner takes all' approach offered by litigation. The intervention of the court should only be sought when a genuine point of law exists or when people or businesses are at risk.

As a Government, we are keen for people to take a less adversarial and a more collaborative approach to solving their problems and encourage greater use of mediation in both civil and family issues.'
