Have your say

Barristers in Sheffield are planning to walk out of court in protest at government cuts to the criminal justice system.

The ‘non attendance protest’ will take place at 9.30am on Monday - the first day of the new court term - when lawyers will be protesting outside Sheffield Crown Court.

They are angry at Government plans to cut fees paid to barristers for their services by up to 30 per cent.
