Unfortunately, these things need internet to work

The tech behind the £1bn justice system modernisation programme, intended to digitise the process against a backdrop of court closures, has been slammed by Brit MPs.

The House of Commons Justice report (PDF) said: "Courts service modernisation, including use of better IT to be more efficient, is long overdue.

"But we have found that poor digital skills, limited access to technology and low levels of literacy and legal knowledge raise barriers against access to new services provided by digital means."

It concluded that Her Majesty's Courts and Tribunals Service (HMCTS) "has struggled to explain its vision for the reform programme, and needs to be more rigorous in engaging with and responding to stakeholders.

The Ministry of Justice should also do more to evaluate the reforms, especially their impact on vulnerable and excluded groups."
