Written Ministerial Statements — Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Media Matters (12 Jul 2018)

Jeremy Wright: Having taken over as the Secretary of State with responsibility for media public interest cases I have reviewed the process regarding the proposed merger between 21st Century Fox (21CF) and Sky Plc (Sky). I am content that DCMS and the relevant parties have ensured a scrupulously clear, fair and transparent process and I can now therefore inform the House of the final decisions made by my...

Written Ministerial Statements — Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Media Matters (10 Jul 2018)

Jeremy Wright: This WMS is to update the House on the process and timings regarding the proposed merger between 21st Century Fox (21CF) and Sky Plc (Sky). On 5 June the previous Secretary of State made a statement to the House in which he set out his decision in relation to the proposed merger. He announced that having considered the Competition and Markets Authority’s (CMA) report, he agreed with...

Written Answers — Attorney General: Crown Prosecution Service (9 Jul 2018)

Jeremy Wright: Holding answer received on 06 July 2018 Her Majesty’s Crown Prosecution Service Inspectorate (HMCPSI) inspects the work of the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) and reports to the Law Officers. The Code for Crown Prosecutors (the Code) provides that it is the duty of prosecutors to make sure that the right person is prosecuted for the right offence. Between 2016 and 2018 HMCPSI...

Written Answers — Attorney General: Crown Prosecution Service (9 Jul 2018)

Jeremy Wright: Holding answer received on 06 July 2018 HMCPSI provide reports to the Law Officers and the public on the work of the CPS and that includes analysis of charging decisions made by the CPS with reference to the Code for Crown Prosecutors. HMCPSI reports and CPS performance information do not provide data on the expectations of the police or victims as to charging decisions and any...

Written Answers — Attorney General: Crown Prosecution Service (9 Jul 2018)

Jeremy Wright: Holding answer received on 06 July 2018 The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) does not maintain a central record of those occasions where the Crown Prosecution Service charges suspects with offences considered less serious than the offences which the police investigated. This information could only be obtained by examining CPS case files, which would incur disproportionate cost.

Written Answers — Attorney General: Crown Prosecution Service: Staff (9 Jul 2018)

Jeremy Wright: Whilst the Crown Prosecution Service has seen a reduction of staff, this does not necessarily correlate to the decreasing caseload. During the same period, the volume of police charged cases and referrals for pre-charge decisions has declined. Importantly, the Crown Prosecution Service has maintained its conviction rate of around 84% throughout this time.

Written Answers — Attorney General: Financial Services: Prosecutions (3 Jul 2018)

Jeremy Wright: The SFO has brought charges against four employees including former chief executives of Barclays Plc as part of its criminal investigation into Barclays and its capital raising arrangements with Qatar Holding LLC and Challenger Universal Ltd in June and October 2008. The case is ongoing. Additionally, a total of 13 employees including former senior bankers have so far had criminal proceedings...

Written Answers — Attorney General: Attorney General: Procurement (2 Jul 2018)

Jeremy Wright: The answer of 6 June 2018 stated there were 8 contractors in the Government Legal Department (GLD) who had worked in GLD for five or more years at 30 April 2018. Their daily rates of pay are: £167.20, £254.45, £285, £369.08, £375, £380, £389.50, and £418.

Written Answers — Attorney General: Attorney General: Policy (29 Jun 2018)

Jeremy Wright: The priorities I have set for my Department include: Helping deliver Government policy in the context of the Law Officers’ constitutional role in relation to the Rule of Law. Defining and delivering the Law Officers’ public interest functions in the interests of the administration of justice. Performing a visible and effective role as a leader in the domestic and international...

Attorney General: Cyber-space: International Law (21 Jun 2018)

Jeremy Wright: Cyber-space is an integral part of the rules-based international order, and there must be boundaries of acceptable state behaviour in cyber-space, just as there are everywhere else. In my speech on this subject at Chatham House on 23 May, I underlined that hostile actors cannot take action by cyber means without consequence, both in peacetime and in times of conflict.

Attorney General: Cyber-space: International Law (21 Jun 2018)

Jeremy Wright: I can confirm that, and my hon. Friend and the House will know that, where it is possible and appropriate to attribute these cyber-attacks to nation states, that is exactly what we do. He and others will recall the attack on, among others, a number of NHS institutions, which we were able to attribute to the North Koreans. We have done so again in relation to the Russians, and that is entirely...

Attorney General: Cyber-space: International Law (21 Jun 2018)

Jeremy Wright: Yes, I do agree. We should recognise the progress that has been made, difficult though it is. In 2015, 20 nation states agreed that the provisions of the UN charter should apply in cyber-space. Included among those 20 nation states were Russia and China, so we have been able to make some progress. In the end, every nation state takes responsibility for its own actions, and it is right that...

Attorney General: Cyber-space: International Law (21 Jun 2018)

Jeremy Wright: We do, and my speech was intended to deliver at least some of that clarity. My hon. Friend is entirely right, and I believe it has now been established that the provisions of the UN charter that mean states are entitled to defend themselves from armed attack also apply in cyber-space. If a cyber-attack is essentially equivalent to an armed attack in its effects, it seems to me appropriate...

Attorney General: Tackling Economic Crime (21 Jun 2018)

Jeremy Wright: The SFO is a key player in the response to economic crime and continues to operate independently, investigating and prosecuting some of the most serious and complex economic crime. I was pleased to announce earlier this month my appointment of its next director, Lisa Osofsky, who will shortly join the SFO to lead the organisation in its vital task.

Attorney General: Tackling Economic Crime (21 Jun 2018)

Jeremy Wright: Yes. Deferred prosecution agreements are a useful tool for the SFO, and they should be used where appropriate and where the corporate entity in question has co-operated fully with the investigation, but it remains the case that in the majority of the SFO’s case load it proceeds to prosecution where that is appropriate and the evidence suggests it is the way forward.

Attorney General: Tackling Economic Crime (21 Jun 2018)

Jeremy Wright: If the hon. Gentleman gives me details of the case he has in mind, of course I will look into it. He will know that the SFO receives its funding in core budget and in blockbuster funding to deal with those extra-large cases that need additional funding. There has never been an occasion, and I hope there never will be, when the SFO has not been able to proceed for reasons of...

Attorney General: Tackling Economic Crime (21 Jun 2018)

Jeremy Wright: I can say three things to my hon. Friend on that. First, both the SFO and the NCA believe this power will hardly ever be used. Secondly, in order for it to be used both my consent and that of the Home Secretary are required. Thirdly, it seems to us that this is sensible co-ordination in the fight against economic crime, but it will not affect the opportunity that the SFO will continue to have...

Attorney General: Tackling Economic Crime (21 Jun 2018)

Jeremy Wright: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman. As I suspect he knows by now from that correspondence, the issue here is primarily that the SFO deals with a certain level of economic crime. It is not that economic crime that does not fall within that threshold level is not sensibly investigated and prosecuted by others. He will recognise that other agencies also investigate and prosecute economic...

Attorney General: Female Genital Mutilation (21 Jun 2018)

Jeremy Wright: FGM is a crime and it is child abuse. The CPS has introduced a series of measures to improve the prosecution of these cases, including appointing a lead FGM prosecutor in each CPS area.

Attorney General: Female Genital Mutilation (21 Jun 2018)

Jeremy Wright: I understand my hon. Friend’s point entirely, and he will understand the frustration felt in the CPS and elsewhere at the fact that those cases that have been brought to court have not resulted in conviction. He will recognise that every case is different and must be judged on its merits. As was said earlier, these cases are often difficult to prosecute. It is worth pointing out that...
