Motion text

That this House notes with concern the announcement made by the Forensic Science Service of a restructuring of the business which will lead to redundancies with an estimated 30 to 40 per cent. of the workforce due to lose their jobs; recognises the first class service provided by the Forensic Science Service which is the market leader in the supply of forensic services to police forces in England and Wales and which has a global reputation for excellence in the developement and deployment of new and advanced techniques; further notes that the Forensic Science Service provides world class training services which all help to provide a comprehensive service, from crime scene to court room, and analyses more than 120,000 cases each year; believes that large job losses will damage this service and result in a loss of valuable skills; and calls on the Government to enter discussions immediately with the Forensic Science Service in order to avoid unnecessary job losses and maintain the skill base which ensure the Forensic Science Service is a world leader.
