Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Leaving the EU: UK Legal System (6 Mar 2018)

David Gauke: We are committed to securing a deal that works for the entire United Kingdom—for Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and all parts of England. The Government expect that the outcome of leaving the EU will significantly increase the decision making of each devolved Administration. I can tell the House that I wrote to Michael Matheson last month to reaffirm the Department’s commitment...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Leaving the EU: UK Legal System (6 Mar 2018)

David Gauke: My hon. Friend raises a good question. We recognise that this is an important right to protect UK nationals, so that they can continue with their chosen line of work. It has already been agreed that those who have received a recognition decision or applied for one before the withdrawal date will be able to have their qualifications recognised after exit, including lawyers. Talks on many key...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Leaving the EU: UK Legal System (6 Mar 2018)

David Gauke: On clause 6 and this question more widely, let us be clear: we are leaving the EU, so the jurisdiction of the ECJ will end, but EU law and the decisions of the ECJ will continue to affect us. For a start, the ECJ determines whether agreements the EU has struck are legal under the EU’s own law. If, as part of our future partnership, Parliament passes an identical law to an EU law, it...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Supreme Court Judgment: Metropolitan Police Commissioner (6 Mar 2018)

David Gauke: This case is a matter for the Home Office and the police. However, I understand that the Home Office is working closely with the National Police Chiefs Council to understand the impact of the ruling and monitor current claims.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Supreme Court Judgment: Metropolitan Police Commissioner (6 Mar 2018)

David Gauke: As the Attorney General has said, disclosure in cases is a question of public authorities performing the roles that they should and doing their jobs properly. Clearly, it is of great concern that there have been cases in which that appears not to have happened.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Topical Questions (6 Mar 2018)

David Gauke: For prisons to be effective, we must get the basics right. This means creating prisons that are safe, secure and decent. It also means tackling the ringleaders of serious organised crime, so that they cannot continue to profit from their crimes and ruin people’s lives through drugs, deaths and violence from behind bars. I can announce that we are investing an extra £14 million to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Topical Questions (6 Mar 2018)

David Gauke: Since 2010 we have removed more than 40,000 foreign national offenders from our prisons, immigration removal centres and the community. A range of removal mechanisms exist that enable foreign offenders to be returned to their home countries, and we are working closely with the Department for Exiting the European Union and the Home Office as we consider our future criminal justice arrangements...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Topical Questions (6 Mar 2018)

David Gauke: I believe that the processes have been set up, that the inquiry led by Sir Martin Moore-Bick is the right approach and that the focus should be on ensuring that the inquiry can make progress rather than trying in any way to undermine it.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Topical Questions (6 Mar 2018)

David Gauke: I very much agree. Indeed, I advanced that argument this morning in a speech to the Royal Society of Arts. If prisoners are abiding by the rules and complying with what is required of them, governors should have more flexibility to reward them with additional privileges. I think that that could help to move people in the right direction and change behaviour in a positive way.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Topical Questions (6 Mar 2018)

David Gauke: We have seen an increased use of suspended sentences, but the hon. Lady is right that we must do more. We want to work closely with community rehabilitation companies and the National Probation Service, because the judiciary must have confidence in non-custodial sentences as well as custodial sentences.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Topical Questions (6 Mar 2018)

David Gauke: As I said to my right hon. Friend the Member for Witham (Priti Patel), in the last few years, something like 40,000 foreign national offenders have been returned to their own countries. We continue to seek to sign additional agreements so we can continue to make progress with this.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Topical Questions (6 Mar 2018)

David Gauke: As I said in reply to the very first question of this session, it is important that we make progress in using the court estate as sensibly as possible. It is underused, and when resources are scarce, it is important that we use them more efficiently. It is also right that we make advances in using digital technology so that access to justice becomes easier.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Topical Questions (6 Mar 2018)

David Gauke: The events in Bedford at the weekend were deeply disturbing and the sympathy of the whole House goes out to that prison officer and his family. Violence against prison officers is at an unacceptable level. There were 8,000 incidents last year and, as I set out in a speech this morning, we must take this incredibly seriously. We must recognise that the driver of a lot of this violence is...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Topical Questions (6 Mar 2018)

David Gauke: The hon. Gentleman raises an important point. If he wants to raise a specific case, I am happy to meet him to discuss it.

The Report, which is today being laid before the House, is submitted on...

Written Ministerial Statements — Ministry of Justice: United Nations Optional Protocol to the Convention against Torture and other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment (OPCAT) (20 Feb 2018)

David Gauke: The OPCAT, which the UK ratified in December 2003, requires States Parties to establish a “National Preventive Mechanism” (NPM) to carry out visits to places of detention to prevent torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment. The Government established the independent UK NPM in March 2009, and extended its membership in December 2013, and in January...

Written Ministerial Statements — Ministry of Justice: Justice and Home Affairs Post Council Statement (1 Feb 2018)

David Gauke: The first meeting of EU Interior and Justice Ministers during the Bulgarian Presidency took place on 25 and 26 January in Sofia. Her Majesty’s Ambassador to Bulgaria, Emma Hopkins, and a senior Government official represented the UK for Interior day. I represented the UK for justice day. Interior day began with a debate on European Asylum Policy. The Presidency set out its objective...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Leaving the EU: Legal Systems (23 Jan 2018)

David Gauke: The Government have made it a priority to ensure that there is a smooth legal transition both in our negotiations with the EU and in our domestic implementing legislation. I fully appreciate that Scotland and Northern Ireland have distinct legal systems, and that is why my Department has been working closely with the devolved Administrations, looking at how our legal and justice systems are...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Leaving the EU: Legal Systems (23 Jan 2018)

David Gauke: First, I thank the hon. Gentleman for his words. It is pleasing to know that, wherever I go, he follows. Regarding the hon. Gentleman’s question, we are ambitious—we want to get the best deal. I appreciate that, in the course of negotiations, it is possible that our interlocutors will express an adverse opinion, but we will continue to engage and to be ambitious.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Leaving the EU: Legal Systems (23 Jan 2018)

David Gauke: We continue to engage with the Scottish Government across the board, including on that implementation matter.
