Prosecution of Offences Act 1985 (Criminal Courts Charge) Regulations 2015 — Motion to Regret — 14 Oct 2015 at 20:19
Moved by Lord Beecham
That this House regrets that the Prosecution of Offences Act 1985 (Criminal Courts Charge) Regulations 2015 undermine the principle of judicial discretion, and add an artificial inducement to plead guilty; and further regrets that the Regulations were laid at a time that severely limited Parliamentary oversight, as well as making claims for savings that cannot be substantiated (SI 2015/796).
