To ask the Attorney-General
(1) what recent progress has been made by the Crown Prosecution Service in developing a full electronic case file system; and when he expects full electronic case files to be fully operational;
(2) what recent discussions he has had with (a) the Secretary of State for the Home Department, (b) the Secretary of State for Justice and (c) the Law Society on the development of a full electronic case file system by the Crown Prosecution Service; and if he will make a statement
Comment by #wco: Once electronic case files are introduced, easier access and cross-referencing should be available. In addition, if they link/reference laws then a “where used” function can be generated helping to identify where laws are cited in cases.
