Recent appearances

  • Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Aiding and Abetting 1 Feb 2018

    To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, if he will take steps to review the use of joint enterprise and bring forward legislative proposals to clarify the law on joint enterprise as a result of the Resolution agreed by the House on Joint Enterprise on 25 January 2018, Official Report, columns 444-477.
  • Joint Enterprise 25 Jan 2018

    It was unforgivably remiss of me earlier, Madam Deputy Speaker, not to welcome the Under-Secretary of State for Justice, my hon. and learned Friend the Member for South East Cambridgeshire (Lucy Frazer) to her first outing on the Government Front Bench. The whole House will wish her well in what will undoubtedly be the start of a long and distinguished ministerial career.
  • Joint Enterprise 25 Jan 2018

    I want to strongly support what the hon. Lady is saying about the judgment of the court in that case in respect of autism. I have read the case and, as a layman, I find the response of the court completely inexplicable.
