Legal human rights organisation Justice criticises "badly planned and drafted legislation" in its 39th annual report. Justice's chair, Lord Alexander, said: "Increasingly, the parliamentary process does not assist the detailed and effective scrutiny which is necessary if laws are to be both fair and workable. Laws are often too poorly drafted, based on inadequate research, with too little time for proper consultation." Anne Owers, director of Justice, said: "Currently our main concerns are juvenile justice, controls over intelligence-led policing and alternative procedures for deciding asylum applications. We are also the only independent organisation gathering a group of legal experts to scrutinise human rights in the European Union intergovernmental process."
