Our courts need investment

I’ve been pushing the Government to invest in better facilities for our courts and will make the case to Ministers again at a meeting coming up soon.


The Government do not seem to want to invest in facilities in Wrexham – their unwillingness to invest in our Magistrates’ court is yet another example of how they are short changing the town.

When I asked them about the issue in 2014, they said they were considering their options. When I asked the same question three years later, the answer was the same. There have already been critical reports about custody provision in Wrexham, and the Government has chosen to do nothing for three years.

The most action Ministers have taken is to commission a design – which they now say they are considering. We do not need another three years of inaction and inadequate services in Wrexham because Ministers don't care.

It is simply not good enough, and I will tell Ministers that face-to-face when I meet them next.
