European Union (Withdrawal) Act (25 Mar 2019)

Dominic Grieve: ..., in his characteristic and tolerant fashion, the examination of alternatives, just as I was by what the Opposition spokesman, the right hon. and learned Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer), said about the breadth of the approach that might be adopted. It is clear that, if we are going to make progress, there should be nothing that is forbidden to be discussed. It is equally...

Privilege (Withdrawal Agreement: Legal Advice) (4 Dec 2018)

Dominic Grieve: able to assert its authority. Nowhere do we see all that come to a head more than with this issue. It is all very well criticising the right hon. and learned Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer) for using a blunt instrument, but there are only blunt instruments to be used. He was fully entitled to table the motion and to seek from the Government the documents that he...

EU Withdrawal Agreement: Legal Advice (13 Nov 2018)

Dominic Grieve: ...not to repeat what has already been said and to be brief. First, I entirely understand the motivation that has led the Opposition and the right hon. and learned Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer) to bring this motion before the House. I have, on a personal level, every reason to be deeply concerned about the legal implications of any potential Brexit deal. We have heard...

Investigatory Powers Bill: General duties in relation to privacy (6 Jun 2016)

Dominic Grieve: clear about the right to privacy. I very much welcome new clause 5; indeed, the difference between that and the new clause tabled by the hon. and learned Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer) is, in reality, very slender indeed, as I see he acknowledges.

High Speed Rail (London – West Midlands) Bill: New Clause 6 — Chilterns AONB Review Group (23 Mar 2016)

Dominic Grieve: I will be extremely brief on the issue of the adjudicator. I listened very carefully to what the hon. and learned Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer) said and I have great sympathy with all the points he makes. This is why I am bound to say that I find it so odd that the Government will not accept the creative idea of having an office of the HS2 adjudicator. The scale of the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Attorney-General: Complaints about Public Prosecutors (7 Jan 2014)

Dominic Grieve: ..., for the independent Bar that does their work. I would be happy to write to my hon. Friend with further details of how this monitoring is carried out. The previous Director of Public Prosecutions, Keir Starmer, made a very particular point in the first year that I was working with him in carrying out an extensive review of the performance of Crown prosecutors. This is monitored and it is...

Written Ministerial Statements — Attorney-General: Code for Crown Prosecutors (28 Jan 2013)
