star this property answer text <p>The UK and EU agree that we need a comprehensive future security partnership that covers key areas of internal security cooperation. We have agreed the outline terms of a comprehensive future security relationship including law enforcement, criminal justice, and judicial cooperation.</p><p>In a no deal scenario, we would move co-operation to alternative, non-EU mechanisms. Broadly speaking, this would mean making more use of Interpol, Council of Europe Conventions, and other forms of co-operation with European partners, such as bilateral channels. Together the Attorney General’s Office, Crown Prosecution Service and Serious Fraud Office are working closely with the Home Office, Ministry of Justice, Police, HM Courts and Tribunals Service and Judiciary to ensure that we have plans in place in event of a ‘no deal’.</p> more like this

Flexi time is individually agreed with line managers to maintain working hours in line with the Working Time Regulations 1998. As there is no central record of working hours, the Attorney General’s Office has no accurate way to estimate any potential unpaid overtime worked by staff in the last 24 months without disproportionate cost.</p> more like this

The Government’s Review provides an opportunity to identify areas, from the beginning to the end of the criminal justice process, where the police, CPS and HM Courts and Tribunals Service can improve practice and outcomes in cases involving these offences. The CPS will work with partners across the criminal justice system to address any issues that are highlighted as a result of the Review.</p><p>All those involved in the Review, including the AGO and the CPS, are committed to ensuring that the Review is conducted with the requisite degree of openness and independence as to enable the public to have full confidence in its final findings.</p> more like this

As the nature of terrorism has evolved, section 17 has been amended to include further offences.
