The Treasury Solicitor represents most, but not all, government departments in litigation. For example, Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs normally conducts its own litigation.

unstar this property answer text <p>Section 51 of the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994 creates two offences:</p><p>S.51(1) creates an offence directed at acts against a person who assists in an investigation of an offence or who is a witness or potential witness or juror or potential juror whilst an investigation or trial is in progress</p><p>S.51(2) creates an offence directed at acts against a person who assisted in an investigation of an offence or who was a witness or juror after an investigation or trial has been concluded.</p><p>The records held by the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) identify the number of offences in which a prosecution commenced and reached a first hearing in the magistrates’ courts, rather than the number of defendants prosecuted. A single defendant may be prosecuted for multiple offences.</p><p>The number of offences charged under s.51(1) and s.51(2) are as follows:</p><br /><table><tbody><tr><td><p><br></p></td><td><p><br></p></td><td><p>2010-2011</p></td><td><p>2011-2012</p></td><td><p>2012-2013</p></td><td><p>2013-2014</p></td><td><p>2014-2015</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994 51(1)</p></td><td><p>Intimidate a witness / juror</p></td><td><p>3,275</p></td><td><p>2,630</p></td><td><p>2,148</p></td><td><p>2,066</p></td><td><p>2,202</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994 51(2)</p></td><td><p>Do an act which harmed a witness / juror</p></td><td><p>102</p></td><td><p>166</p></td><td><p>99</p></td><td><p>72</p></td><td><p>109</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994 51(2)</p></td><td><p>Threaten a witness / juror</p></td><td><p>240</p></td><td><p>172</p></td><td><p>118</p></td><td><p>122</p></td><td><p>129</p></td></tr></tbody></table><br /><p>The proportion of CPS cases that result in a guilty plea has increased from 67.2% in 10/11 to 74.5% in 14/15 which means that there are fewer cases that are likely to be subject to the sorts of acts covered by s.51(1) during the course of the prosecution.</p><p>Also, s.51(1) covers intimidation of juror or potential jurors. The number of crown court trials have also been reducing over the period in question by 9.5%, again resulting in fewer cases where S.51(1) offences are likely to apply.</p>
