Written Answers — Attorney General: Domestic Violence: Prosecutions (14 Dec 2017)

Jeremy Wright: This question relates to the differences in recording of data under section 76 of the Serious Crime Act 2015. The data reported by the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) in the answer to Question 112584 differs from that provided by the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) in the response to Question 112585 in that: CPS data is for the financial year; MoJ data for the calendar year.

Written Answers — Attorney General: G4S and Serco (29 Nov 2017)

Jeremy Wright: The SFO criminal investigation into G4S and Serco electronic monitoring contracts is still ongoing and it would not be appropriate to publish any further details at this stage as this could compromise the investigation. SFO cases are by their very nature complex, lengthy and resource intensive and it is not unusual for them to take a considerable time to be concluded. However, the SFO will...

Attorney General: Terrorism Offences: Prosecution (16 Nov 2017)

Jeremy Wright: The last financial year saw the highest number of terrorism-related arrests in any year since data collection began, and a 55% increase in trials from the previous year. The conviction rate in terrorism prosecutions remained at 86%. The team of specialist prosecutors within the Crown Prosecution Service counter-terrorism division has doubled in size and their skills have been enhanced through...

Attorney General: Terrorism Offences: Prosecution (16 Nov 2017)

Jeremy Wright: I am grateful to my hon. Friend, who has considerable experience in prosecuting cases. He is right that disclosure is a huge challenge, and becoming an ever greater one, because of the volume of material that arises, particularly in terrorism cases. We need to make sure we understand fully how we deal with a large quantity particularly of electronic material and sift it effectively. Then we...

Attorney General: Terrorism Offences: Prosecution (16 Nov 2017)

Jeremy Wright: This is a matter of considerable public concern. He will know that many of the offences related to what is happening in Syria are offences of preparing to commit acts of terrorism.

Attorney General: Terrorism Offences: Prosecution (16 Nov 2017)

Jeremy Wright: Across the United Kingdom, the volume of cases and convictions is going up all the time. It is important that we recognise that the volume of cases reflects a genuine problem—a problem not just of terrorist acts, but of those who encourage or glorify terrorism. We must make sure the law keeps pace with that in terms of substantive offences and the sentencing regime.

Attorney General: Terrorism Offences: Prosecution (16 Nov 2017)

Jeremy Wright: I agree that incitement to hatred is reprehensible, from wherever it comes and whatever subject it is based on, and it is important that the criminal law is available to deal with that conduct. The hon. Gentleman is right too—he has heard me say this before—that conduct online should be treated no less seriously than conduct offline. No one should imagine that they are immune from...

Attorney General: Leaving the EU: Prosecution of Criminals (16 Nov 2017)

Jeremy Wright: The Prime Minister has made it clear that the United Kingdom is committed to maintaining both the UK’s and Europe’s security now and after our withdrawal from the EU. We believe that the UK and the EU should work together to design new, dynamic arrangements as part of our future partnership, that would allow us to continue and to strengthen our close collaboration on security, law...

Attorney General: Leaving the EU: Prosecution of Criminals (16 Nov 2017)

Jeremy Wright: Yes, I can give the hon. Gentleman that reassurance, and he is absolutely right that such offences are best dealt with transnationally, because they are committed transnationally. He will recognise that outside the European Union we have a number of different relationships with many other countries to enable us to do law enforcement more effectively and of course bring prosecutions more...

Attorney General: Leaving the EU: Prosecution of Criminals (16 Nov 2017)

Jeremy Wright: Yes. My hon. Friend is right that data is crucial to this, and he will recognise that two things need to be done simultaneously. We need to aspire to the closest possible co-operation in law enforcement and security with our European friends after our departure from the EU. We also, of course, need to prepare for what I think is the unlikely possibility that we will not have an ongoing...
