embargo: For immediate release
Commenting on the government-commissioned review of civil litigation funding and costs published today (Tuesday), TUC General Secretary Brendan Barber said:
'This review has nothing to do with justice, it is simply lining the pockets of insurers at the expense of claimants seeking compensation for injuries caused by the negligence of others.
'This is yet another attempt to reduce the rights of those at work to secure justice when employers break the law.'
