We shared insight into how we investigate and prosecute in order to fight the most serious and complex cases of fraud, bribery and corruption.

Delighted to speak with @TheCityUK this morning where I set out how our upcoming Financial Services & Markets Bill will seize our new freedoms to enhance the UK's position as a global leader in financial services.

Justice Committee concerned Govt has delayed response to its report on Covid & the Criminal Law due to political controversy about Downing Street parties. Delay sends damaging message to Parliament & public about value it places on parliamentary scrutiny. https://committees.parliament.uk/publications/22841/documents/167750/default/

Initial #census2021 results on the population by age and sex have now been published for England, Wales and Northern Ireland. 97% of households responded overshooting the @ONS target by 3%. Read our Insight: http://ow.ly/i9Q350JKNVf

Today, a further 10 Crown Courts will introduce a special measure which allows victims of rape to pre-record their evidence at trial.

This builds on progress we’ve made in providing support for victims of rape and driving up convictions.

Here is a cracker of a question by @neill_bob. It’s the sort of question you ask in court when you know very well that the other side has no facts at all to support their case.

Invoking doctrine of necessity is a high bar to clear & must be evidenced. We don’t yet have that evidence before us. Departing from an international obligation is of such significance that the Govt should bring the evidence to House of Commons & put proposed departure to a vote.

In the Chamber debating the #NIProtocolBill. The application of the doctrine of necessity requires the legal test being met but also the evidential base.

We need to see that evidential base so that we can form a judgement on whether proportionality and necessity are met.

Read Sir Bob's article for @politicshome on the legality of the Northern Ireland Protocol Bill here. 👇https://www.politicshome.com/thehouse/article/government-must-explain-legality-of-northern-ireland-protocol-bill-to-parliament

Important contribution from @neill_bob during today’s Northern Ireland Protocol Bill debate, where he asks @trussliz about the evidential basis upon which the government has decided the Bill meets the tests of proportionality and necessity.

Tory MP @neill_bob - who penned an op-ed last week questing the legality of the #NIProtocolBill: "The application of the doctrine of necessity requires the legal test being met but also the evidential base...Can she tell us when that will be available to the House?"

To mark today's #ArmedForcesDay, when we show our support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community, the Mayor led a flag-raising ceremony at the Civic Centre earlier this week.

An apposite day for @thebarcouncil to publish my #JusticeWeek2022 blog on the rule of law.

Given our illustrious role in forging the rule of law, we too often take it for granted. Constant investment and nurturing are required to overcome complacency.

.@neill_bob says it’s vital that, with the Social Housing (Regulation) Bill having been introduced, #localgov brings its expertise to bear in the forthcoming discussions – with 3 areas key to the conversation.

Introducing the NI Protocol Bill does not itself breach international law, but it's politically very risky, while the exceptionally wide powers included are hard to justify. The Govt has a lot of important questions to answer.

🙅‍♂️ Tory MP Sir Bob Neill (@neill_bob), chair of the justice select committee, said the government's legal defence for unilaterally overriding the Northern Ireland Protocol was highly dubious

"The Northern Ireland Protocol sought to reconcile difficult and sensitive post-Brexit issues... Unfortunately, it has failed in those objectives."

Sir Bob Neill MP, Chair of @CommonsJustice, was among the speakers at a parliamentary reception today launching #JusticeWeek2022. The Bar Council has teamed up with @TheLawSociety and @CILEXLawyers in a bid to improve access to justice.

Sir Bob Neill becomes one of the first Tory MPs to publicly criticise the Northern Ireland Protocol Bill

He writes in @TheHouseMag that it is legally dubious and politically risky

Here's why he has a hard time buying government's "necessity" argument
