To ask the Attorney General, what recent discussions he has had with the CPS on potential prosecution of Volkswagen in connection with diesel emissions data; and if he will make a statement.

The Attorney General has regular discussions with the Director of Public Prosecutions about a variety of issues. As was the case with previous Attorneys General, it is not our policy to provide details of all such discussions.

I can however confirm that the Serious Fraud Office (SFO) is working with UK and European bodies to assess whether there is any potential criminal offence, involving serious or complex fraud, which falls within its remit.

Does this answer the above question?
