unstar this property answer text <p>There has been unprecedented joint commitment and focus from the police and the CPS to finding solutions to the problem of getting disclosure right.</p><p> </p><p>Proper disclosure of unused material is vital if there is to be a fair trial. That is why in 2018 the Attorney General published his review, looking at the efficiency and effectiveness of the current disclosure system, including how sensitive data is handled. We are now working hard to implement the recommendations made in the review, and extensive action has already been undertaken to bring about necessary changes. The government remains committed to ensuring that errors in the disclosure process are driven down to their absolute minimum.</p> more like this

As there is no central record of working hours, the Attorney General’s Office has no accurate way to estimate the amount of time off in lieu taken by staff in each of the last five years without disproportionate cost.</p> more like this

It has delivered training on the steps to be taken, where there is a reason to believe that a suspect or defendant in a criminal case might be a victim. In those circumstances, the prosecutor will consider what further evidence or information might be required and will review whether the prosecution should proceed or not. The guidance sets out that where there is sufficient evidence that the accused is a victim and the conditions provided for in section 45 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 are met, the case should not be charged or proceeded with.</p> more like this
