DPP may begin to supply reasons for decisions

In a move which is certainly welcomed by this blogger, Director of Public Prosecutions, James Hamilton has said that an internal review is currently at an advanced stage which could lead to a change in the long time policy of not giving reasons for decision.
Hamilton himself seems to be in favour of the move, but has refused to make any official comment which may pre-empt the findings of the review.

Any increase in transparency can only be a good thing for this extremely important organ of the state.
