From Morning Report, 7:55 am on 3 September 2018

The report, on behalf of the Bar Association, looked at six years worth of cases before the Court of Appeal and Supreme Court, and found "no discernible trend of improvement" over that period. Jenny Cooper QC is a co-author of the report. She talks to Susie Ferguson.
