Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Sentencing (12 Dec 2017)

Dominic Raab: The Government has no immediate plans to extend the 28-day time limit for a referral under the unduly lenient sentences scheme but is considering the wider operation of the scheme. The 28-day time limit reflects similar constraints on defendants appealing against conviction or sentence and avoids ongoing uncertainty for the offender and victims about the sentence to be served. The Attorney...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Leaving the EU: UK Legal System (5 Dec 2017)

Dominic Raab: We are taking back control over our laws—that is what the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill does—so that hon. Members in this House are properly accountable to the voters and the UK Supreme Court has the last word on the law of the land. From that point on, we can retain, revise or repeal any piece of retained law as we see fit for the British national interest.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Leaving the EU: UK Legal System (5 Dec 2017)

Dominic Raab: In our negotiations with the EU, we have made it clear—for example, in our position paper on civil and judicial co-operation—that we want to maintain that win-win co-operation in areas such as recognition of contractual judgments, but also on decisions in family law disputes that support businesses and individuals on all sides.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Leaving the EU: UK Legal System (5 Dec 2017)

Dominic Raab: May I gently suggest that the hon. Gentleman does not engage in such scaremongering? I have been talking to practitioners, legal groups and the judiciary. We have set out our plans in our position paper, and I would have thought that he would welcome that. Through the EU (Withdrawal) Bill, which I hope he will support, we will make sure that we have a smooth legal transition.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Leaving the EU: UK Legal System (5 Dec 2017)

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Leaving the EU: UK Legal System (5 Dec 2017)

Dominic Raab: My hon. Friend is right. Of course, I take very seriously the concerns of those who think we need to mitigate the risks, and that is what our negotiations and the EU (Withdrawal) Bill will do. We also have a huge opportunity to promote UK legal services on a global level through trade liberalisation and by promoting the UK as a hub for international dispute settlement. We should grasp the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Leaving the EU: UK Legal System (5 Dec 2017)

Dominic Raab: The position is set out in the EU (Withdrawal) Bill, and the hon. and learned Lady will know from Committee debates that we have made it very clear that we are not going to pre-empt or prejudge the outcome of the negotiations on either the withdrawal agreement or the implementation period.
