A.40 The tests apply only to the most simple cases. Only the key evidence is provided to the Crown Prosecution Service, the defence and the court. This work is looking at whether it may be possible to further simplify the procedure for all agencies. The key aim is to see whether it is possible to reduce the burden of preparation by the police without impacting upon effectiveness at the court. The tests so far have demonstrated a saving in preparation time, but work is on-going to ensure that legal aid processes are built into any business ready model and that there is no detrimental impact on effectiveness at court (which would be counterproductive).
