Since the announcement calls have been made for clarity.  It has been reported that cuts are to be made to the payments made to families of murder victims, but while Ministers have stated that they are "not inclined" to reduce payments, a Ministry of Justice (MoJ) spokesman has not ruled it out.
 
While reform may well be needed, it is essential to ensure that those who need support receive it.
 
The MoJ is seeking savings in the tune of 23% and I wait to see where the axe will fall.
