Written Ministerial Statements — Ministry of Justice: Call for Evidence Response on SLAPPs (20 Jul 2022)

Dominic Raab: Today the Government is publishing its response to its Call for Evidence on SLAPPs – Strategic Lawsuits Against Public participation. SLAPPs are a growing form of aggressive litigation which seek to intimidate, silence and harass an opponent via improper use of the judicial system. The invasion of Ukraine has heightened concerns around the way foreign actors may be misusing the UK legal...

Written Ministerial Statements — Ministry of Justice: Judicial Update (19 Jul 2022)

Dominic Raab: I am today announcing the Government’s decision on pay for the judiciary. The Government received the Senior Salary Review Body’s (SSRB) report on 28 June 2022. This will be presented to Parliament and published on Gov.uk. The Government values the independent expertise and insight of the SSRB and has considered the advice in the report. The recommendation made by the SSRB for the...

Written Ministerial Statements — Ministry of Justice: Prison update (19 Jul 2022)

Dominic Raab: I am today confirming the Government’s decision on pay awards for prison staff. Throughout the pandemic and beyond, our officers (alongside all prison service staff) have gone above and beyond to protect the public and give prisoners the best possible chance at a new start. Their efforts are hugely appreciated. We have carefully considered the Prison Service Pay Review Body’s (PSPRB)...

Confidence in Her Majesty’s Government (18 Jul 2022)

Dominic Raab: I rise to proudly defend the record of this Government under this Prime Minister, and to speak in favour of the motion before the House. The Government under this Prime Minister have steered the country through some of the most difficult challenges in living memory. This Government under this Prime Minister got the big calls right on the vaccine roll-out—the fastest and most effective in...

Confidence in Her Majesty’s Government (18 Jul 2022)

Dominic Raab: My hon. Friend is absolutely right. What is more, the behaviour of those on the Labour Benches will unite the country. We know why they have not stood up to the unions, including the RMT, since 2015. The Labour party HQ and the local Labour party branches have guzzled up some £68 million in donations from the unions. It is the same old story. The Labour party cannot stand up for the people...

Confidence in Her Majesty’s Government (18 Jul 2022)

Dominic Raab: The Opposition do not want to hear it. They never want to talk about the fact that unemployment is close to a 50-year-low, or about the rise in the national insurance threshold, which is the biggest personal tax cut in a decade to support hard-working people across the country; the record levels of doctors and nurses in our precious NHS, only because we have the economic strength to fund...

Confidence in Her Majesty’s Government (18 Jul 2022)

Dominic Raab: We have zero tolerance, and the systems are in place. Let me tell the hon. Lady—she talks a lot about this—that the number of convictions for rape has risen by two thirds in the past year. When it comes to supporting the victims of crime—[Interruption.] I have listened to her, but she never talks about this: we have quadrupled the investment in support services for victims since the...

Confidence in Her Majesty’s Government (18 Jul 2022)

Dominic Raab: My hon. Friend raises an interesting point, which I believe is now a matter of public record. The right hon. Member for Ashton-under-Lyne backed a leader who the former head of MI6 said—I will quote, so we have this accurately for the record—denigrated his own country and “embraced the interests of its enemies and opponents”. That is who Labour supported. The Opposition have no...

Confidence in Her Majesty’s Government (18 Jul 2022)

Dominic Raab: Total rubbish.

Confidence in Her Majesty’s Government (18 Jul 2022)

Dominic Raab: Does the hon. Lady recognise the fact that in the last year, the volume of rape convictions has increased by two thirds? A simple yes or no.

Justice: Reoffending Rates (5 Jul 2022)

Dominic Raab: Let me take the chance, on behalf of those on the Conservative Front Bench and, I believe, on all the Benches behind me, to offer our condolences to the shadow Justice Secretary on the passing of his father. The overall reoffending rate has decreased by 5 percentage points from 31% in 2009-10 to 26% in 2019-20. Over that period, reoffending rates for robbery, criminal damage, arson, drug...

Justice: Reoffending Rates (5 Jul 2022)

Dominic Raab: My hon. Friend is right: the work that we are doing on skills and education right the way through to getting offenders into work is vital. I am very pleased, as he may know, that, working with the Department for Education, we are introducing a statutory instrument to introduce apprenticeships in prison. That SI will pass in September, and we will start the first apprenticeship straight away.

Justice: Reoffending Rates (5 Jul 2022)

Dominic Raab: By 2024-25, we will be investing £200 million a year, in dealing with skills and work, as I have already said, and also with drug rehabilitation, particularly sustainable absence-based drug rehabilitation. The further action that we are taking on resettlement passports will avoid that potential cliff edge when an offender leaves prison, and makes sure that the wraparound care is there as...

Justice: Reoffending Rates (5 Jul 2022)

Dominic Raab: My hon. Friend is absolutely right; research shows that the odds of reoffending are 39% higher for prisoners who did not have visits from family or friends while they were inside prison. That is why the new builds, Five Wells and the others, have not only in-cell technology that can facilitate dialogue and close family ties, but family centres to ensure that the ties that bind, and can cut...

Justice: Reoffending Rates (5 Jul 2022)

Dominic Raab: At the moment, when the vital question of risk is assessed, there is a risk that separate reports, whether from psychiatrists or probation officers and those who manage risk, may give conflicting recommendations. Therefore, in those serious cases that the hon. Lady refers to, there will be one overarching Ministry of Justice view, so that the Parole Board has a very clear steer and we make...

Justice: Reoffending Rates (5 Jul 2022)

Dominic Raab: There is renewed investment going in to community payback. There has been a covid effect since the years the hon. Gentleman mentions; I know he has raised the issue of those obligations being discharged from home, but that will all be phased out by the autumn. This is a valuable scheme for restorative justice, so that the public see those who have committed crimes making recompense.

Justice: International Criminal Court: Ukraine (5 Jul 2022)

Dominic Raab: We have offered the International Criminal Court a comprehensive package of financial and technical support to ensure that leaders under President Putin and those in the field can be held to account for any war crimes in Ukraine.

Justice: International Criminal Court: Ukraine (5 Jul 2022)

Dominic Raab: I thank the hon. Lady, and she is absolutely right that the Court can only do so much. It is not an overarching justice system with all the investigators, witness relocation schemes and enforcement powers that a domestic scheme or a domestic jurisdiction would have. We have provided financial support and a dedicated liaison officer from the Met, based in The Hague, to facilitate information...

Justice: International Criminal Court: Ukraine (5 Jul 2022)

Dominic Raab: My right hon. Friend is absolutely right: this is another unlawful act, taking Russia further and further into pariah status. We have said that clearly, and our allies have too. On Ukraine, as well as the support that we are providing to the ICC, I have had meetings with the Ukrainian Minister of Justice and the Ukrainian Prosecutor General, to ensure that they have all the support that we...

Justice: Topical Questions (5 Jul 2022)

Dominic Raab: Since the last oral questions the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Act 2022 has entered into force, I published the Bill of Rights and we submitted our victims Bill to pre-legislative scrutiny.
