Attorney General written question – answered on 12th July 2022.
To ask the Attorney General, what recent steps she has taken to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of disclosure.
In May, we published the review of disclosure and amended the Disclosure Guidelines to deliver improvements for police, prosecutors and victims of crime.
The new Guidelines feature an annex on data protection which will ease the burden on police handling digital material, leaving them more time for front line duties and investigating crime.
Updated principles on accessing third party material have strengthened privacy protections for victims and mandate officers to have clear, written reasons in place before accessing any material such as therapy notes.
