As the Deputy is aware, under the provisions of the Courts Service Act 1998, management of the courts is the responsibility of the Courts Service, which is independent in exercising its functions, which include the provision of information on the courts system.
However, in order to be of assistance to the Deputy, I have had inquiries made and I can indicate that, following the provision of additional information by the Deputy, the Courts Service is further examining the matter and will contact the Deputy directly.
