As a former barrister, Michael has always had a keen interest in Justice and the law. As Mis Majesty’s Solicitor General, he was a key part of our Justice System.
As a former barrister, Justice is an issue in which I have always had a keen interest. I work closely with Dorset’s Police and Crime Commissioner David Sidwick, and I am pleased with the work that is being done both locally and nationally to keep our communities safe.
As HM Solicitor General, I worked alongside the Attorney General. Our Department provided superintendence to the Government Legal Department, the Crown Prosecution Service, HM Crown Prosecution Service Inspectorate and the Serious Fraud Office. I reviewed hundreds of Unduly Lenient Sentences, and recommended they be referred back to the Court of Appeal for increasing.
