Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: New Clause 15 — Restraint orders and legal aid (18 Mar 2013)

Nicola Blackwood: ..., and prosecutions in Rochdale and Keighley and excellent work in Lancashire show that we are getting our act together. That is not, however, always the case and it is certainly not the perception. Keir Starmer made it clear just days ago that traditional tests by the Crown Prosecution Service to evaluate witnesses have the potential to leave this category of vulnerable witnesses...

International Women's Day — Motion to Take Note (7 Mar 2013)

Baroness Northover: ...colleague, the noble Baroness, Lady Rendell. The Government are also frustrated, as was the noble Baroness, Lady Crawley, by the lack of prosecutions in the past 25 years. We welcome the fact that Keir Starmer, the Director of Public Prosecutions, who published a CPS action plan in November, is seeking to improve prosecutions for FGM. As the noble Baroness will know, a major new programme...

Communications: Social Media (26 Feb 2013)

Steve Rotheram: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Dobbin. On 19 December 2012, the Director of Public Prosecutions, Keir Starmer, issued interim guidelines on prosecuting cases involving communications sent via social media. It was a welcome move in the right direction and I hope that Parliament and the judiciary will study internet abuse more closely and begin, as I have been urging...

Public Bill Committee: Crime and Courts Bill [Lords]: Clause 30 - Use of force in self-defence at place of residence (5 Feb 2013)

Jenny Chapman: ...of clear, robust protection for victims in these cases, but it seems to be the opinion in most quarters who should know about these things that that is what we already have. To give an example, Keir Starmer, the Director of Public Prosecutions, said that the current law worked very well. The Lord Chief Justice, Lord Judge, noted that the current law allows home owners great protection. In...

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

Dominic Grieve: On behalf of the Director of Public Prosecutions, Keir Starmer QC, I am today depositing in the Libraries of both Houses an updated version of the Code for Crown Prosecutors. The code sets out how prosecutors working in the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) make decisions and is supported by comprehensive legal guidance on a range of topics, further details of which are available on the CPS...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Crime and Courts Bill [Lords] (14 Jan 2013)

Fiona Bruce: ...trimmed back; as the recent report by the Joint Committee on Human Rights said, it “constitutes a disproportionate interference with freedom of expression.” The Director of Public Prosecutions, Keir Starmer, has said that “the word ‘insulting’ could safely be removed without the risk of undermining the ability of the CPS to bring prosecutions.” A gap will not be left in the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Attorney-General: Child Abuse Victims (8 Jan 2013)

Keith Vaz: I welcome the steps taken by Keir Starmer and Nazir Afzal to try to reorganise how the Crown Prosecution Service deals with these matters. However, the fact remains that in relation to Rotherham there have been no prosecutions this year in the whole of south Yorkshire, despite 600 victims having been identified in the past few years. Does the Solicitor-General share my concern? Can we please...

Female Genital Mutilation (8 Jan 2013)

Karl Turner: ...it is astonishing that there has not been a single prosecution. I welcome the recent efforts of the Director of Public Prosecutions and the publication of the Crown Prosecution Service action plan. Keir Starmer QC stated: “It is critical that everything possible is done to ensure we bring the people who commit these offences against young girls and women to justice”. Right hon. and...

Crime and Courts Bill [HL]: Report (4th Day) (12 Dec 2012)

Lord Dear: My Lords, I shall respond to one thing. Lest there should be any doubt that I might have been concealing something in the letter from Keir Starmer QC, the DPP, having safely said that you can take "insulting" out of the section, in the last line he says: "However, I also appreciate there are other policy considerations involved". I am bemused. I think that he probably knew something that I...

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

Baroness Stowell of Beeston: ...to 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: ...as 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: ...at only one small aspect of an undercover operation. Those inquiries have not been particularly thorough and have not resulted in follow-up action. For example, the Director of Public Prosecutions, Keir Starmer QC, ordered an investigation and report into allegations that the Crown Prosecution Service suppressed vital evidence in the case of the Ratcliffe-on-Soar environmental protestors....

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...
