star this property answer text <p>I regularly meet ministerial colleagues to discuss important issues of common interest, including on matters relating to the UK’s exit from the EU. I am unable to disclose the legal content of those discussions because whether or not the Law Officers have given advice and the content of any such advice is, by convention, not disclosed outside Government. The Convention protects my ability as chief legal adviser to the Government to give full and frank legal advice about some of the most contentious and difficult issues the Government will be considering.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The payment of witness expenses and allowances to prosecution witnesses, where the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) is the prosecuting authority, is governed by the Crown Prosecution Service (Witnesses’ etc. Allowances) Regulations 1988.</p><p>The rates payable in accordance with the Regulations are designed to provide compensation to witnesses attending court but not necessarily full reimbursement of all costs incurred, including loss of earnings, whether the witness is employed or self-employed. The aim is to strike a balance between providing a reasonable level of compensation to witnesses and ensuring that public money is spent appropriately.</p><p>It is important that the allowances are set at a level that does not discourage the public from coming forward to give evidence and rates are subject to regular review. Nevertheless, limits on the amounts payable are necessary if the Government is to maintain control over public spending in order to direct limited resources to areas of greatest need.</p><p>The witness allowance rates are due to be reviewed shortly.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Settlement agreements (previously known as compromise agreements) provide the ability for workers or employees to contract out of certain aspects of the Employment Rights Act 1996. Therefore it is important that individuals entering into these agreements have appropriate independent advice.</p><p>In 1998 Parliament amended the list of people who could give such advice, which was previously restricted to qualified lawyers. The list now includes trade union officials, employees or members and those who work or volunteer at advice centres provided that the trade union or advice centre, respectively, has authorised them as being able to do so. If a paralegal fell in to one of these categories they would be able to provide such advice.</p><p>The Government has no current plans to extend further the list of relevant independent advisors for the purposes of settlement agreements.</p> more like this
