I don't think so. Any one of we family lawyers who currently have difficulty with the courts not sending orders out until after timetabled dates have passed because they are understaffed and who attend courts where there are massive waits because of the number of litigants in person attending will surely think that the action taken so far has not improved the access to justice/justice system. To close local courts thus making sometimes vulnerable people travel miles to their allocated court is not going to work. A number of people who will be affected will be those on benefit and are they seriously going to spend their benefit on travelling miles to court?
