Ministry of Justice

Volume 460: debated on Thursday 24 May 2007

23. To ask the Solicitor-General what assessment he has made of the likely impact of the creation of the Ministry of Justice on the work of the Crown Prosecution Service. (138950)

The creation of the Ministry of Justice does not affect the responsibilities of the Law Officers or those of their Departments. The prosecuting authorities, including the CPS, will remain independent, and subject to our statutory superintendence. The existing trilateral arrangements for the criminal justice system are preserved. The Law Officers and the CPS play a full part in those arrangements.
