§ The Solicitor-General
My hon. Friend asked a very similar question last year, which I answered on 30 October 2003. and earlier this year, which I answered on 19 January 2004.
Ms Kate Carty, the Chief Crown Prosecutor for CPS Nottinghamshire, is an active member of the Local Criminal Justice Board.
I am aware that my hon. Friend met with the Lord Chancellor on 2 February 2004 to discuss the work of the Nottingham Criminal Justice Board.
