We have recently been informed that Salford County Court is closing on the 5th August 2011. This will be an extremely sad day both for Jack Russell Clients (particularly those based in the North West) and indeed the Court Service as a whole.
Unfortunately, they have become the victim of savage cuts, which in our opinion, is going to considerably weaken the Court Service and we are reliably informed that there is already a 6 week backlog in certain post being dealt with which is a reflection of the problem. Perhaps consultation with County Court users such as ourselves would have been a far more sensible course of action rather than just simply closing Courts with the impact of Businesses having a more reduced and slower service as a result.
Jack Russell would like to thank all of the hard working staff at the Salford County Court for the excellent service they have provided over the years and we will all be sad to witness it’s demise. Having used various County Courts over the years, we would easily put Salford County Court in the top 3 performers. We would welcome both our Clients and other Court users’ feedback on this matter.
