House of Lords debate on restorative justice
from Why Me?
On 20th March 2012 and in the House of Lords, the Government rejected the third and probably final attempt “To add restorative justice to the statutory purposes of sentencing” within the Legal Aid and Sentencing of Offenders Bill.

There is little doubt that restorative justice makes sense.
Certainly when it was first brought in, the suggestion that a victim of crime being handed immediate compensation by a perpetrator made sense.
