Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Human Rights Act 1998 (1 Jun 2015)

Basil McCrea: ...of the Policing Board's human rights and professional standards committee. During that time, I got to look at a number of really interesting issues from a human rights perspective, guided by one Keir Starmer. There were interesting debates, including on the introduction of the taser, which not everybody agreed with, and changes to stop-and-search powers, which not everybody agreed with....

Debate on the Address: Home Affairs and Justice (28 May 2015)

Michael Gove: ...barrister and the biographer of Clement Attlee and Aneurin Bevan, a combination of skills and talents that will add significantly to our future debates. The hon. Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer) enjoyed 12 minutes of uninterrupted speech in this place. I hope there will be many other opportunities for us to hear him, when we may perhaps have occasion to interrupt him to...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Keir Starmer: Independent Review (18 May 2015)

David Ford: That is a very reasonable question, but, since Sir Keir Starmer was preparing the report for Barra McGrory, the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), and not for the DOJ, I am not entirely clear on that point. My understanding is that it is likely to be published within the next week, but it is in the hands of Sir Keir and the DPP, not me or anybody to do with the DOJ.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Maíria Cahill: PSNI/PPS Conduct (10 Mar 2015)

David Ford: ...s office and the matter is currently under investigation. The Public Prosecution Service is entirely independent of my Department; however, the Director of Public Prosecutions has commissioned Sir Keir Starmer to conduct a review of the prosecution of three interlinked cases involving sexual abuse and terrorist-related charges. I have asked for early warnings of Sir Keir’s review of...

Isil: New Clause 1 — Termination of pregnancy on the grounds of the sex of the unborn child (23 Feb 2015)

Edward Leigh: base the law on the law. There is no mention of this in the 1967 Act. There was no possibility of mentioning it in the Act, because it was not possible to determine gender when it was passed. Keir Starmer is therefore absolutely right: the law is unclear.

Isil: New Clause 8 — Child sexual exploitation (23 Feb 2015)

Bill Cash: ...International Development and the Leader of the House and met them to discuss all the matters to which I am about to refer. We have also had advice from some very capable and senior barristers. Sir Keir Starmer, the former Director of Public Prosecutions, completely supports what I am about to say, as does Aileen McColgan of chambers. These matters have been pushed forward by the...

Modern Slavery Bill: Report (1st Day) (23 Feb 2015)

Baroness Royall of Blaisdon: ...becomes an offence because you do it with a view to exploitation … You could have an offence of trafficking, full stop, and a separate offence of exploitation”. Alongside him, the former DPP, Keir Starmer, and Nadine Finch, a barrister specialising in children’s law, have identified a need for separate offences for exploitation and human trafficking. In particular, with regard to...

Crime Reduction Policies (22 Jan 2015)

Andrew Slaughter: ...justice system as a criminal justice service fit for victims. A lot of good work is going on; I pay tribute to the work done by my hon. Friend the Member for Barnsley Central (Dan Jarvis) and Sir Keir Starmer, alongside the shadow Lord Chancellor and Baroness Lawrence. The previous Labour Government were building strong cross-departmental practice in work on female offending prior to...

Public Bill Committee: Serious Crime Bill [Lords]: New Clause 1 - Child Sexual Exploitation (20 Jan 2015)

Ann Coffey: ...problem in wider society of adults not understanding their responsibilities to all children—undeserving children as well as deserving children. When he was Director of Public Prosecutions, Keir Starmer made the point that all children should have the protection of the criminal justice system. He issued new guidance in October 2013 and said: “The final guidelines, which have been...

Public Bill Committee: Serious Crime Bill [Lords]: Clause 65 - Child cruelty offence (15 Jan 2015)

Seema Malhotra: ...USA, Canada, Australia and several European states. In those countries, discretion has been removed and certainty has been put in its place. Indeed, the former Director of Public Prosecutions, Sir Keir Starmer QC, has expressed his support for mandatory reporting to close the gap in the law. He made that position clear after the report by Alexis Jay following the inquiry in Rotherham. The...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statements: Intergovernmental Agreement on Cooperation on Criminal Justice Matters (9 Dec 2014)

David Ford: ensuring that the work being done at the moment — the review by the Police Ombudsman, the review commissioned by the Director of Public Prosecutions and being carried out on his behalf by Keir Starmer QC and the ongoing work of investigating further complaints being made to the PSNI and an Garda Síochána — will continue. We will then see what appropriate work may follow.

Domestic Violence — [Dr William McCrea in the Chair] (29 Oct 2014)

Seema Malhotra: ensure that victims’ voices are heard, that there is a way they are heard fast, and that there is a fast response to the challenges that are being raised. I am working closely on that with Keir Starmer, the former Director of Public Prosecutions, because we need to see a new agency—a new body—that can sit alongside the Victims’ Commissioner and the Children’s Commissioner to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Police Service of Northern Ireland (29 Oct 2014)

Nigel Dodds: I am grateful to the Secretary of State for her reply and for her reference to the independent investigation by Keir Starmer into Mairia Cahill’s allegations. However, does she understand the concern and anger of people right across the community in Northern Ireland in relation to the allegations against Gerry Adams about the cover-up of the sexual abuse by his brother and his refusal to go...

Serious Crime Bill [HL] — Report (2nd Day) (28 Oct 2014)

Baroness Meacher: ...preaching. The Minister explained to me just before this debate that the Bill team believes that the amendment does not achieve what we believe that it will. However, I sought legal opinion from Keir Starmer and his colleague Catherine Meredith, and they came back to me over the weekend and assured me that the amendment is fine and will achieve what we want it to. Of course, this was very...

Oral Answers to Questions — Attorney-General: Witness Support (14 Oct 2014)

Andrew Gwynne: Back in November 2013, Keir Starmer, the then Director of Public Prosecutions, launched a protocol under which the police, the social service and prosecutors would work together to share information on child sex abuse cases. What proportion of local authorities in England and Wales have adopted that protocol, and what consideration has the Attorney-General given to making it compulsory?

Public Bill Committee: Modern Slavery Bill: Clause 7 - Confiscation of assets (9 Sep 2014)

Diana R. Johnson: ...the confiscation of major criminals’ assets has so far been far from satisfactory—a lot more can be done. The Labour party has been working with the former Director of Public Prosecutions, Sir Keir Starmer, on a review of the current situation with a view to tabling a series of amendments in the other place, where another Bill is currently being examined. Depending on what happens in...

Assisted Dying Bill [HL]: Second Reading (18 Jul 2014)

Baroness Meacher: ...opponents need not fear abuse by relatives; the safeguards have been shown in Oregon to deal with this relatively small problem very well. In their literature, our opponents have taken a quote from Keir Starmer, the former DPP, out of context to imply that he is content with the law as it stands. I spoke to Keir Starmer last week. This was not his meaning, but his guidance has resulted in...

Child Abuse — Question (15 Jul 2014)

the Bishop of Durham: vital at every stage of this inquiry; that their voices, through for example the Stop Church Child Abuse campaign, are clear that ultimately only a full public inquiry will do; and that Sir Keir Starmer would be a trusted member of the inquiry panel?
