Question

In your VAWG, you committed to:

Roll out a pilot for Section 28 of

the Youth Justice and Criminal

Evidence Act 1999 with HMCTS

and other justice partners, which

allows vulnerable and intimidated

witnesses such as children to video

record their cross-examination

before a trial, rather than have to

face reliving their trauma in the

courtroom.

Please can you update me on the progress of this?
