The scheme of the Report is to examine the purpose, structure and working of the criminal courts in the [England and Wales] criminal justice system and to consider: re-structuring and improving the composition of the criminal courts, introducing new criteria and procedures for allocating work between them and better matching of courts to cases; introducing a new structure for direction and better management of the criminal justice system as a whole, with a view to improving the quality of justice, efficiency and effectiveness of the criminal process; removing work from the criminal process that should not be there, and providing within it alternative forms of disposal for certain types of case; improving preparation for trial and trial procedures, and reform of the law of criminal evidence; and simplification of the appellate structure and its procedures.
