Violence Against Women — Question for Short Debate (29 Nov 2012)

Baroness Stowell of Beeston: him about that. The noble Baroness, Lady Rendell, spoke in great detail about female genital mutilation so I will not go over that in any detail myself. I am so pleased that she welcomed what Keir Starmer announced at the weekend; we very much share her view that this is absolutely vital. Having that law in place is not enough. We need prosecutions, and action to bring prosecutions to...

Hillsborough (22 Oct 2012)

Angela Smith: ...of an all too easy assumption that any trouble at a football match is down to the behaviour of the fans. Justice has to be delivered, and I welcome the referrals to the IPCC and the involvement of Keir Starmer in the ongoing investigations. As my right hon. Friend the shadow Home Secretary said earlier, the investigation is in two parts. We have the events leading up to the disaster and...

Criminal Justice System — [Mrs Linda Riordan in the Chair] (17 Oct 2012)

Andrew Stephenson: a murderer; he was never sentenced as a rapist and a murderer. Those cases were left to lie on file. Will the hon. Gentleman join me in praising the efforts of John and Penny in talking to Keir Starmer and the Crown Prosecution Service to ensure that severe charges such as rape are not simply left on a shelf and that people such as Vass are not able to cover their crimes by murdering...

Undercover Policing (13 Jun 2012)

Caroline Lucas: only one small aspect of an undercover operation. Those inquiries have not been particularly thorough and have not resulted in follow-up action.

Royal Assent: Assisted Suicide (27 Mar 2012)

Sir David Amess: ...of their decision. As has been said, however, it is right that Parliament talks about this subject and that we take a view on it. I am content with the DPP guidance as it stands, and I agree with Keir Starmer, who has said that we have a law with a stern face but an understanding heart. That says it all as far as I am concerned. I acknowledge the DPP’s report setting out the guidance....

Small Business Administration: Backbench Business — Un-allotted Day — Assisted Suicide (27 Mar 2012)

Richard Ottaway: ..., Parliament and not the courts should have the last word on prosecuting policy and the criminal law. I think it appropriate to put on record at this point that I have the highest regard for Mr Keir Starmer QC, the current Director of Public Prosecutions, who drew up the policy that we are debating as he was asked to do by the Law Lords. Let me begin by explaining what the debate is not...

Supplementary Estimates 2011-12 — Home Office: Forensic Science Service (27 Feb 2012)

Michael Ellis: ...also right that staff are being moved prior to the controlled shutdown of the FSS and that work is being safely transferred. I note with some interest that the Director of Public Prosecutions, Mr Keir Starmer, who I believe was appointed by the Labour Government, remains satisfied that the closure is orderly and that things can be properly managed. The financial service regulator has also—

Opposition Day: Backbench Business — [Unallotted half day] — Metal Theft (7 Feb 2012)

Lynne Featherstone: ...out is clear: metal thieves will have nowhere to hide. We have recently seen some significant sentences given to metal thieves, which I hope will continue. I welcome the recent announcement by Keir Starmer, the Director of Public Prosecutions, in which he instructed prosecutors to use every tool at their disposal to take a firm stand to convict metal thieves. I make it clear that we are in...

The director made the point that the CPS had explained that in certain circumstances the...

Education and Training (Young People with Autism): New Clause 27 — Reasonable force for the purposes of self-defence etc (1 Nov 2011)

Sadiq Khan: ...accepted by those at the coal face that the law on self-defence works pretty well and it is unclear in many quarters why the law would need strengthening. The Director of Public Prosecutions, Keir Starmer QC, has said: “There are many cases, some involving death, where no prosecutions are brought. We would only ever bring a prosecution where we thought that the degree of force was...

Paul Goggins: ...would be reported in the media and lead to further speculation that, in turn, could compromise a trial. Both Lord Carlile, the former independent reviewer of counter-terrorism legislation, and Keir Starmer, the current Director of Public Prosecution, told the Committee that putting too much information into the public domain could prejudice a fair trial. Alternatively, so little...

Business without Debate: Public Confidence in the Media and Police (20 Jul 2011)

Mark Reckless: ...We must ask why those 11,000 pages of Mulcaire’s documents were not looked at and why the police did not do anything about them, but we must also ask why the CPS did nothing. Even yesterday, Kier Starmer was not quite clear as to whether the CPS had seen them all; he said that it had seen only the ones up to August 2006. We have now heard from my hon. and learned Friend the Member for...

Police Reform and Social Responsibility Bill — Report (5th Day)(Continued) (14 Jul 2011)

Lord Thomas of Gresford: ...this amendment with which I do not agree. However, I can take them up at a different time. Let me make it clear that there have been discussions between my noble friend Lord Macdonald and Mr Keir Starmer and they have come to a conclusion that is acceptable to both; namely, that the test should be published in guidance. No doubt it will be applied appropriately and in accordance with the...
