Business of the House (Today): UK’s Withdrawal from the European Union (14 Mar 2019)

Tom Brake: ...when the Minister responds he will clarify what the Government’s position is on that. The spokesman for the official Opposition, the right hon. and learned Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer), said that he thought there were people here who were pushing a people’s vote amendment for “another reason”. I do not think he specified what that reason was, but I am pushing a...

Tom Brake: Thank you, Madam Deputy Speaker. I will keep within that limit. Let me begin by thanking the right hon. and learned Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer) for securing the debate, because this is an essential point that needed to be considered.

Public Bill Committee: Terrorism Prevention and Investigation Measures Bill: Examination of Witnesses (21 Jun 2011)

Tom Brake: I repeat the question I asked Keir Starmer earlier. Do you think that there is anything in the Bill that will allow more suspects to be brought to trial? If there is not, can you think of any measures that have not already been debated, such as intercept, that could be brought into play?

Legal Aid (11 May 2011)

I am sure that the Minister is also aware of the proposals that Keir Starmer, the Director of Public Prosecutions, put forward on how costs can be saved in the wider legal arena. I hope that the Minister will respond to those points. The Government clearly...
