CMC Response to MoJ Consultation
The Civil Mediation Council (CMC) welcomes the Ministry of Justice (MOJ) consultation into compulsory mediation for small claims – up to £10,000. The CMC has been campaigning for automatic referral to mediation for over five years, and sees this consultation as a very positive step. The CMC will be looking closely at the proposals and continuing to liaise with the MOJ and other stakeholders.
Chair of the CMC, Rebecca Clark, said: “This consultation is wider than small claims mediation and will impact how the mediation market develops and is regulated going forward. It is critically important and brings together much of the work the CMC has been doing to unify the mediation profession.”
