Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Assisted Dying (8 Oct 2019)

Robert Buckland: ...for evidence. However, I hear his point about prosecutions. The Crown Prosecution Service guidelines, which were actually pioneered by the right hon. and learned Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer), in my view strike a very sensitive and sensible balance between the need to protect the vulnerable and the need to understand the sensitive and emotive circumstances of many of...

Withdrawal Agreement: Legal Advice (29 Nov 2018)

Robert Buckland: My hon. Friend, the Chair of the Justice Committee, is absolutely right. The right hon. and learned Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer) is more familiar than most with the position of the Law Officers and their role within the constitution. I would have expected him to do better.

Withdrawal Agreement: Legal Advice (29 Nov 2018)

Robert Buckland: I think the hon. Lady was reading out the words of the motion, which were not the words adopted by the right hon. and learned Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer). He confined himself to a particular document that he wanted to see. Those are the terms of reference that he sought, and it does nobody any good to try to go back on what he said. A statement on the Government’s...

EU Withdrawal Agreement: Legal Advice (13 Nov 2018)

Robert Buckland: ...offer with regard to the Government’s position? His contribution reflected very much the careful and deliberate argument of the right hon. and learned Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer), who rightly, and perhaps almost inevitably—he will forgive me for saying that—moved away from the wide-ranging terms of the motion and very clearly set out his and his party’s...

Rail Review: Terms of Reference: Victims Strategy (11 Oct 2018)

Robert Buckland: ...he then got on his soapbox a bit—and I am sure that he will forgive me for saying that—a lot of the recommendations made by the right hon. and learned Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer) and others are things that we have already done or that we are doing via the strategy? As DPP, the right hon. and learned Gentleman took through massive changes to the CPS that I believe...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Commencement and short title (13 Jun 2018)

Robert Buckland: It is a pleasure to rise in this debate to set out the Government’s stance on these important amendments. The right hon. and learned Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer) was properly concerned about the effluxion of time. I share that concern; there is a lot to go over, and I will do my very best to cover all the amendments before us and, of course, to take interventions, as I...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Retaining Enhanced Protection (15 Nov 2017)

Robert Buckland: ...of the Human Rights Act 1998, any retained direct EU legislation is to be treated as primary legislation”. We all know—including the right hon. and learned Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer), the shadow Secretary of State—about the consequences in terms of incompatibility, the power of the courts and what the House can do to rectify legislation. I think that is an...

Crown Prosecution Service: Funding (11 Jan 2017)

Robert Buckland: ...on funding. I accept, of course, that as a result of the tough decisions we had to make in 2010, expenditure was reduced. I pay tribute to the hon. and learned Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer), who stewarded the CPS through that period. He did a remarkable job of delivering efficiency and providing leadership, which was then taken up by Alison Saunders, the Director of...

Investigatory Powers Bill: Persons who may apply for issue of warrant (7 Jun 2016)

Robert Buckland: ...numbers and SIM cards to the defendants and to identify key locations. However, communications data are changing. The world in which the hon. and learned Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer) and I started out practising is no longer the world as it is today. Telephone calls are very often not the means by which criminals and terrorists conduct their activity. Much of that has...

Investigatory Powers Bill: Persons who may make modifications (6 Jun 2016)

Robert Buckland: ...of authorisations, and I am sure that we will have a productive and weighty debate on these matters this evening. The amendments tabled by the hon. and learned Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer) seek to remove the reference to judicial review principles. The House will be aware that the Joint Committee that considered the draft Bill said that it was “satisfied” with the...

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

Robert Buckland: ...terrorism have the tools to do the job. I will deal first with new clause 21, which has taken up much of the debate. In an intervention on the hon. and learned Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer), my right hon. Friend the Minister for Security indicated that we will consider the position with regard to new clause 5 very carefully. That is indeed the case. It seems to me that...

Public Bill Committee: Immigration Bill: Clause 31 - Appeals within the United Kingdom: certification of human rights claims (5 Nov 2015)

Robert Buckland: ...into huge prescriptive detail on time limits or time indications is not really guidance. Guidance must give decision makers discretion and allow them to look individually on a case-by-case basis. Keir Starmer rose—

Crown Prosecution Service — [Mrs Anne Main in the Chair] (23 Jun 2015)

Robert Buckland: ...experience of the criminal justice system. We have two in the room today—my hon. Friend the Member for Cheltenham (Alex Chalk) and the hon. and learned Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer), to whose excellent speech I will return—but it would be wrong of me not to refer as well to the hon. Member for Torfaen (Nick Thomas-Symonds), who went down a more civil path in his...
