The Government is investing across the justice system.The additional £85 million to the CPS will enable the CPS to respond effectively to any increase in caseload resulting from the recruitment of 20,000 new police officers; to better meet their disclosure obligations; to work with investigators to pursue all reasonable lines of inquiry; and to deliver much needed changes to external counsel fees. Investing in the CPS to meet these pressures demonstrates that this Government is commitment to ensuring that justice is served.
