§ Mr. Shersby
To ask the Attorney-General if he will publish the code for Crown prosecutors drawn up by the Crown prosecution service.
The code for Crown prosecutors is a public document.
In accordance with section 10(3) of the Prosecution of Offences Act 1985, the Director of Public Prosecutions sets out any alterations to the code in the annual report which she makes to me under section 9 of the Act. The annual report is available to the public through HMSO.
The code was re-printed in January 1992, incorporating amendments that have been made since it was first issued in 1986. A copy of the revised edition was placed in the Library of both Houses on 10 March 1992.
