Written Answers — Attorney General: War Crimes: Gaza (22 Mai 2024)

Victoria Prentis: As per my previous answer to UIN 25822 tabled on Thursday 16 May, and as reflected in the Ministerial Code, I do not confirm publicly whether I or any other Law Officer has advised on a particular issue or the content of any advice, save where I, as a Law Officer, explicitly consent. That consent is rarely given.

Written Answers — Attorney General: Online Safety Act 2023: Convictions (20 Mai 2024)

Victoria Prentis: I wrote to you on this important subject on Friday 17 May 2024. For completeness, I set out my full written response below. Tackling violence that disproportionately impacts women and girls remains one of this government’s top priorities. Women and girls should be able to go about their lives without being subjected to unwanted sexual images. Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) prosecutors...

Written Answers — Attorney General: Salvage: South Africa (20 Mai 2024)

Victoria Prentis: I have not had any discussions with the Government of South Africa on this legal case. With respect to discussions with Cabinet colleagues, the Law Officers’ Convention requires that it is not generally disclosed outside Government whether I have been asked to provide advice or the contents of any such advice. This is a long-standing principle of Cabinet collective agreement which enables...

Written Answers — Attorney General: War Crimes: Gaza (16 Mai 2024)

Victoria Prentis: I cannot answer your question as to do so would be in breach of the Law Officers’ Convention. Paragraph 2.13 of the Ministerial Code clearly states that the fact that the Law Officers have advised or have not advised and the content of their advice must not be disclosed outside Government without their authority.

Attorney General: Violence Against Women and Girls: Prosecution Rates ( 9 Mai 2024)

Victoria Prentis: Tackling violence against women and girls is a priority for the Government. I recently visited CPS Thames and Chiltern to hear specifically about the work it is doing to combat stalking. I also heard how the domestic abuse joint justice plan will transform how we investigate this all-too-frequent crime.

Attorney General: Violence Against Women and Girls: Prosecution Rates ( 9 Mai 2024)

Victoria Prentis: Yes. It is always difficult to talk with pleasure about increased numbers of prosecutions, because all the survivors of those acts have gone through a horrible event for a prosecution to take place, but I agree with the hon. Lady that it is generally a good sign that prosecution numbers are going up. I am pleased to say that they are going up in her area for adult rape cases. There is more to...

Attorney General: Violence Against Women and Girls: Prosecution Rates ( 9 Mai 2024)

Victoria Prentis: I am afraid that I do not have to hand specific figures for the hon. Gentleman’s constituency under that Act, but I am happy to get them for him. We are confident that it will be possible to bring prosecutions under the Act. These are important and distressing but relatively new crimes, and it is important that we continue to work with the police and the CPS to prosecute novel areas of...

Attorney General: Violence Against Women and Girls: Prosecution Rates ( 9 Mai 2024)

Victoria Prentis: The Chair of the Select Committee is tempting me to step on the firm territory of the Lord Chancellor, as he well knows. He also knows, because he and I have discussed this many times, that the Lord Chancellor and I speak several times a week about our concerns about the shortage of counsel in the criminal sphere in particular. However, I would say gently to my hon. and learned Friend that I...

Attorney General: Royal Albert Hall: Governance ( 9 Mai 2024)

Victoria Prentis: The Royal Albert Hall is one of our most important cultural institutions. There are long-standing differences between the trustees of the Hall and the charity commissioners over governance matters. I really hope that the parties will work together to resolve their differences without expensive litigation and I stand absolutely ready to facilitate those discussions.

Attorney General: Royal Albert Hall: Governance ( 9 Mai 2024)

Victoria Prentis: The hon. Lady takes a very close interest in these matters and is, I believe, the chair of the all-party parliamentary group on ticket abuse. I really commend her for her work in this important area. Many of us who are great supporters of the Albert Hall are concerned by ticket costs. I am hopeful, as I said, that the two parties can continue to work together. I want to avoid expensive...

Attorney General: International Humanitarian Law: Israel-Palestine Conflict ( 9 Mai 2024)

Victoria Prentis: As all Members know, the Law Officers’ convention means that I cannot disclose outside Government whether or not I have provided advice, or the specifics of such advice, but it is no secret that we continue to call for international humanitarian law to be respected and for civilians to be protected.

Attorney General: International Humanitarian Law: Israel-Palestine Conflict ( 9 Mai 2024)

Victoria Prentis: This Government firmly respect the role and the independence of the ICJ. Its ruling, or order, called for the immediate release of the hostages and referred to the need to get more aid into Gaza, and that is exactly what the Government are also calling for.

Attorney General: International Humanitarian Law: Israel-Palestine Conflict ( 9 Mai 2024)

Victoria Prentis: This Government believe very firmly in international law. On 9 April, the Foreign Secretary announced that our position on export licences was unchanged. We publish data on our export licensing decisions transparently and on a quarterly basis.

Attorney General: International Humanitarian Law: Israel-Palestine Conflict ( 9 Mai 2024)

Victoria Prentis: I thought that the ICC’s statement was worthy of note, and I am grateful to the right hon. Lady for bringing it to the House’s attention. In his statement, the independent prosecutor was also keen to point out that he welcomed active engagement by Governments and other parties on the work in which he is clearly engaged around the world to ensure that international humanitarian law is...

Attorney General: International Humanitarian Law: Israel-Palestine Conflict ( 9 Mai 2024)

Victoria Prentis: As the hon. Gentleman knows, I cannot give my specific legal advice. I cannot share that with the House—it is for the Government alone—but I can say that the Foreign Secretary has reviewed the most recent advice from the IHL cell. That has informed his decision that there is not a clear risk that the items exported from the UK might be used to commit or facilitate a serious violation of...

Written Answers — Attorney General: Attorney General: Written Questions (17 Ebr 2024)

Victoria Prentis: I refer the Rt Hon Member to my substantive response to UIN 6773 and 6774 tabled on 24 January 2024.

Written Answers — Attorney General: International Law (15 Maw 2024)

Victoria Prentis: The Law Officers’ Convention requires that it is not generally disclosed outside Government whether I have been asked to provide advice or the contents of any such advice. This is a longstanding principle of Cabinet collective agreement which enables the Government of the day to obtain frank and full legal advice in confidence.

Attorney General: International Humanitarian Law (14 Maw 2024)

Victoria Prentis: I visited Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories between 14 and 16 February. In Israel, I met Israel’s Attorney General, lawyers for the Israel Defence Forces, and the president of the Supreme Court. In the west bank, I met the Palestinian Attorney General and the Prime Minister.

Attorney General: International Humanitarian Law (14 Maw 2024)

Victoria Prentis: I know that the hon. Lady cares very deeply about this region—she and I have visited it together. I reassure her that my discussions with those I met, both in Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories, were very frank, and I am confident that our messages were delivered clearly. I made clear the importance of international humanitarian law being respected, civilians being protected,...

Attorney General: International Humanitarian Law (14 Maw 2024)

Victoria Prentis: The hon. Lady and I served on the Justice Committee together, and I know that she shares my deep feeling that we must do everything we can to make sure that international humanitarian law is respected in the region. The UK has repeatedly raised with Israel the need to limit operations to military targets, to protect health facilities, and to avoid harming civilians. The Prime Minister and the...
