Following that debate the Director of Public Prosecutions, Keir Starmer, wrote to me to meet some of the points made in that debate by the noble Lord and other Peers.

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

Graham Jones: ...eight were given a conditional discharge. The average fine was £379, and only once was the maximum of £1,000 used. I welcome the response by the Home Secretary on sentencing and the comments of Keir Starmer, the Director of Public Prosecutions, who recently said that the Crown Prosecution Service would be taking a “firm stand” against metal thieves and would spell out the level of...

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—

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...

Royal Assent: Assisted Suicide (27 Mar 2012)

Jim Fitzpatrick: ...his excellent speech. I do not think that we have agreed on much over the years in this place, but on this we are of one mind. More importantly, I congratulate the Director of Public Prosecutions, Keir Starmer, on publishing the guidance and the balance of public interest test that the hon. Gentleman covered in his speech. I welcome the debate, and the mood of the House seems clearly...

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.

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...

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...

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

Baroness Rendell of Babergh: give evidence against their parents. Another is that Horn of Africa communities maintain silence, even among themselves, on FGM issues. Now, however, the Director of Public Prosecutions, Keir Starmer, has spoken out on the criminality of this practice and published an action plan. The 10 provisions in the plan include: gathering more robust data on allegations of FGM, so that the scale...

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

Lord Dear: ...fears are misplaced. Most of us know that the federation is feeling bruised at the moment. Change is not at the top of its agenda. But it might well take heart from the letter that the current DPP, Keir Starmer QC, wrote to me only last week, in which he said: "The issue has been the subject of consultations by the Home Office in both 2009 and 2011. On both occasions, the CPS responded...

Female Genital Mutilation (8 Jan 2013)

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...

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...
