Labour MP for Holborn and St Pancras (8 May 2015 – current)
Keir Starmer: I am Keir Starmer, Director of Public Prosecutions.
Keir Starmer: Keir Starmer, Director of Public Prosecutions.
Lindsay Hoyle: I am going to bring Keir Starmer back for one more question. Keir Starmer.
Keir Starmer: I would be interested in the Government’s position on that, because it does not sit with what is in the code of practice. If all clause 30 intends is to say, “We thought he was called Keir Starmer; now we know he’s called Steve”—I have always wanted to be called Steve—“but the warrant applies to exactly the same person,” or, “We thought it was 137 Charlton Road; we now...
Bill Kidd: In an interview with the BBC, Sir Keir Starmer has claimed that in the forthcoming Scottish Parliament election Trident is not on the ballot paper, because it is not a matter for Holyrood. However, in 2015, here at Holyrood, Labour voted to oppose nuclear weapons, which was brilliant. Does the First Minister agree that spending increasing billions on weapons of mass destruction is...
Humza Yousaf: I do, but in fairness I do not think, knowing Paul Sweeney and Scottish Labour as I do, that those remarks from Keir Starmer reflect their position. I know from having spoken to many Scottish Labour members that they are pro-immigration, which is why I think that they would share my, and Emma Harper’s, disappointment at Keir Starmer’s very divisive rhetoric. There are three elements to...
Lord Callanan: It would indeed be impressive if Keir Hardie had gone on the radio this morning. I am sorry, I was of course referring to Keir Starmer.
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.
Humza Yousaf: ...and levers away from the Conservative Party, which has already slashed our budget by £650 million, due just to financial incompetence. However, the thing that will not help staffing in the NHS is Keir Starmer’s insistence on talking down our overseas workers in the NHS, who make a fantastic contribution to the NHS in Scotland. Somebody in Scottish Labour should stand up and apologise...
Jim Allister: Going back to the comments of Keir Starmer, does the Minister think that the term of reference that says: "make recommendations on the future actions required to prevent and tackle child sexual exploitation" is adequate to permit a recommendation that, as Mr Starmer suggested, failure to report child sex abuse should be made a criminal offence? Is that term of reference adequate for that,...
Mairi Gougeon: I do not think that Keir Starmer’s comments were at all helpful. We know that the food and drink sector is one of the areas that have been most impacted. As I said in a previous response, access to labour is probably the number 1 issue that I hear about when I speak to businesses in the food and drink sector and right across the supply chain. It is a huge problem. We know that some of the...
Keir Starmer: It is a pleasure.
Nick Herbert: ...final entry in the Table in paragraph (2) and insert— ‘Thursday 20 January Until no later Than 2.30 pm The Metropolitan Police Service; Liberty Thursday 20 January Until no later than 3.15 pm Keir Starmer QC, Director of Public Prosecutions’.
Christopher Chope: We will now move straight on to Keir Starmer. You do not need any introduction as the Director of Public Prosecutions. Thank you very much indeed for coming.
Tom Brake: I repeat the question I asked Keir Starmer earlier. Do you think that there is anything in the Bill that will allow more suspects to be brought to trial? If there is not, can you think of any measures that have not already been debated, such as intercept, that could be brought into play?

Justice: The work of the Crown Prosecution Service.

Lilian Greenwood: Does the right hon. and learned Gentleman agree with the recent recommendation made by the former Director of Public Prosecutions, Keir Starmer, that teachers and health workers who fail to report reasonable suspicions of child abuse should face criminal prosecutions? Will he produce guidance for schools on what constitutes reasonable suspicion?
