The Government will therefore make available to all members of Parliament a full, reasoned position statement, setting out the Government’s agreed legal position on the Agreement, including the Irish backstop proposals. The Attorney will also make a statement to the House of Commons and take questions. This will help to ensure Parliament has all appropriate information ahead of the vote on the final deal.</p><p> </p><p>We expect the Attorney General’s statement to be repeated in the Lords, with questions.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Baroness Vere of Norbiton wrote to the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) on 13 December 2017. The DPP provided her response on 9 January 2018.</p><p> </p><p>In her response, the then DPP confirmed that the flagging definition for hate crime was agreed between the CPS and the NPCC (ACPO as it was then) in 2007 and that it is wider than the definition set out in legislation to ensure all relevant cases are captured.</p><p> </p><p>The CPS adopted the recommended definition in the Macpherson report published in 1999 as a result of the inquiry into the murder of Stephen Lawrence. The Macpherson report also recommended that ‘this definition should be universally adopted by the Police, local Government and other relevant agencies’.</p><p> </p><p>The recommendations of the Macpherson report were welcomed by the Government at the time and the current Government remains in support of this position. The CPS has worked with police to implement the recommended definition across all strands of hate crime. The CPS takes tackling hate crime seriously and recognises the need to increase public confidence to report. The flagging definition is important in achieving this aim.</p><p> </p><p>In order for a crime to be charged and prosecuted as a hate crime, the CPS uses the legal definitions contained in the Crime and Disorder Act 1998 (CDA 1998) and the Criminal Justice Act 2003 (CJA 2003). This means that not every incident that the victim or another person has perceived to be a hate crime will actually be a hate crime in law.</p><p> </p><p>In her letter, the then DPP also confirmed that the CPS legal guidance recognises the potential impact of prosecutions on Article 10 of the European Convention on Human Rights (the right to freedom of expression). The CPS must balance the rights of an individual to freedom of speech against the duty of the state to act proportionately and to protect the rights of others.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Last year the Charity Commission wrote to the Attorney General requesting his consent to refer five questions to the First-Tier Tribunal concerning the Corporation of the Hall of Arts and Sciences – i.e. the Royal Albert Hall, which is a registered charity. While the Charity Commission has the power to refer questions to the Tribunal, it may only do so with the consent of the Attorney General, as set out in section 325 of the Charities Act 2011.</p><p> </p><p>This is a complex case involving the application of modern day charity law to an organisation established over 150 years ago. Before making an assessment as to whether consent should be given to the Commission’s request, both the Corporation and the Commission were invited to make further representations to the Attorney General’s Office. It is important that these are considered carefully, taking into account all relevant factors. While it is not possible to provide an exact estimate as to when a decision will be made, the matter is being given careful thought with a view to reaching a decision as soon as possible.</p>

star this property answer text <p>If there is evidence that people are going to Syria to engage in terrorist activity they can be arrested and prosecuted. Each case is considered individually in accordance with the rules of the applicable criminal law jurisdiction. In England and Wales if the police refer a case to the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS), they consider whether the test in the Code for Crown Prosecutors is met; that is whether there is sufficient evidence of any offence, and if so, whether it is in the public interest to prosecute. A similar public interest approach is taken by the office of the Lord Advocate, the sole prosecuting authority for Scotland.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Whether an individual is arrested or prosecuted for a terrorism offence will always depend on the facts and circumstances of the case and is an operational decision for the police and responsible prosecuting authority. Safeguards are built in to our legislation and we rely on the professionals involved to make sure that prosecutions are pursued in appropriate cases. Whether any specific act falls within the definition of ‘terrorism’ and whether any individuals or groups have committed an offence will always depend on all facts and circumstances of the case. Depending on the specific circumstances, anyone who becomes involved with fighting overseas may be prosecuted under the applicable law on their return<strong>.</strong></p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>A very wide range of offences already exists on the statute books that can be used to prosecute such individuals and to manage the risk they may pose on return, including in the Terrorism Acts 2000 and 2006 which provide extra-territorial jurisdiction in relation to certain activities. In particular, where there is evidence that individuals are planning, promoting, funding, facilitating or participating in terrorist activities overseas - including involvement in fighting for terrorist groups - the relevant authorities will seek to prosecute them, before they go or on their return.</p><p> </p>

This followed an incident on 9 March 2014 when members of the public witnessed a fox being killed by a pack of hounds on land near Buttermere. The police were satisfied that there was sufficient evidence to charge Mr Liddle and issued a postal requisition on 6 June 2014. These offences fall within the category of offences where the charging decision rests with the police. Mr Liddle appeared at Workington Magistrates Court on 27 June 2014 and pleaded not guilty to all charges. Following receipt of all the evidential material from the police, the case was reviewed by the Crown Prosecution Service’s North West Area Wildlife Crime Lead. He applied the Code for Crown Prosecutors and determined that there was insufficient evidence to provide a realistic prospect of conviction having considered all of the required elements of the offence. Following consultation with Cumbria Constabulary the case was discontinued on 10 September 2014. The Crown Prosecution Service did not, therefore, bring charges against Mr Liddle. The case was brought to an end after the full evidential material was reviewed.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>As you will be aware, the Balance of Competences Review concluded in December. It was the most comprehensive analysis of the UK’s relationship with the EU ever undertaken. The Review involved a large number of Departments across Whitehall to produce the 32 reports. The Review was based on the evidence and views received through widespread consultation with interested parties from across society. Across the whole review, departments received close to 2,300 evidence submissions. Departments held over 250 events, attended by around 2,100 stakeholders.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>It was important that what is an unprecedented examination of EU membership was done with appropriate time and care. But the government is also very conscious of the need to ensure value for money in everything that it does.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Lawyers in the Cabinet Office European Law Division of the Treasury Solicitor’s Department coordinated legal work on the Review. According to the Department’s time recording information, they spent a total of 192.5 hours on the Review between October 2013 (the earliest date from which this information is available) and December 2014. This consisted of 81 hours at Director level (salary range £85,000 to £162,500), 57 hours at Deputy Director level (salary range £62,000 to £117,800), and 54.5 hours at Grade 6 level (salary range £60,000 to £73,100).</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Lawyers in other parts of the Treasury Solicitor’s Department provided legal services to a range of Government Departments in the course of the Review. They did so as part of their normal work, and did not separately record time spent on the Review. Providing a full breakdown of staff time and costs would exceed the disproportionate cost threshold.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The Department did not incur any other costs arising from the Review.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) has robust processes for dealing with cases involving deaths in custody or in contact with police which follow the requirements of the then Attorney General's &quot;Review of the Role and Practices of the CPS in Cases Arising from a Death in Custody 2003&quot;.</p><p>All death in custody cases are dealt with by the CPS Special Crime and Counter Terrorism Division to ensure consistency of approach and that they are dealt with by lawyers with the necessary skills and experience. Only very experienced senior lawyers, who are specifically designated, are permitted to review death in custody cases. The reviews carried out by the senior lawyer in cases involving deaths in custody are examined by their line manager and then by the Head of Special Crime &amp; Counter Terrorism Division (or her Deputy). They are then submitted to the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) for final approval. In any case where the decision is not to proceed, unless the DPP is satisfied that it is &quot;plain beyond doubt&quot; that there is no case to answer, experienced external counsel will be instructed to advise.</p><p>The status of the specified cases is as follows:</p><p>(1) Azelle Rodney: Following the publication of the report of Sir Christopher Holland in relation to his inquiry Mr Rodney's death, the IPCC wrote to the Director of Public Prosecutions to ask that the CPS review the case. This review is underway and the CPS is working with the IPCC in order to determine whether any further investigation is required. Once the CPS is satisfied that it has received a full file, it will consider whether charges should be brought.</p><p>(2) Jimmy Mubenga: prosecutions were announced on 20 March 2014.</p><p>(3) Christopher Alder: prosecutions took place in 2002 – all defendants were acquitted.</p><p>(4) Sean Rigg: The CPS has provided investigative advice to the IPCCin relation to allegations of perjury. A charging decision has not been requested.</p><p>(5) Habib Ullah: The CPS has received a full file and is considering whether charges should be brought.</p><p>(6) Ricky Bishop: Mr Bishop died in 2001. The case has not been referred to the CPS within the last 3 years.</p><p>(7) Anthony Grainger: a prosecution was announced on 16 January 2014.</p><p> </p>
