Keir Starmer: I can answer from the prosecution side, not from the control order side. We have obviously had to consider how we approach offences that take place both sides of the border. Building on the approach in the case you mentioned, we now have procedures in place with our colleagues in Scotland to ensure that we can deal quickly and effectively with issues that arise such as, not least, jurisdiction—where the evidence is and how you transfer it. That does not answer your question in relation to control orders, but certainly when it comes to criminal conduct, we have clear agreements and a good understanding with our colleagues in Scotland as to how we will approach those cases.
