answer text <p>The Attorney General’s ‘Review of the efficiency and effectiveness of disclosure in the criminal justice system’, published in November 2018, highlighted the need for early engagement. The Review includes recommendations on pre-charge engagement and proportionate frontloading to ensure there is a better balance between streamlining work and performing disclosure obligations early. This National Disclosure Improvement Plan, which contains commitments made by the CPS, NPCC and College of Policing, also highlights the importance of engagement between the prosecution and the defence.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The Attorney General and I engage frequently with the Home Office, and issues relating to disclosure remain of paramount importance to us. Extensive action is underway to bring about the necessary cultural change within the CPS and policing, and we are clear that this is a collaborative effort. In June the Minister for Policing and I will be co-chairing a Tech Summit, in order to address the increasing amount of digital material involved in the disclosure process.</p><p /><p /> more like this
