On Without Prejudice this week, Charon QC, David Allen Green and I discuss:
- Labour’s “Leveson” bill, and what the editors have been up to in Downing Street;
- the government’s proposals on extending marriage to same-sex couples – and the relationship between the Church, bishops and the law;
- the Justice and Security Bill (or “secret courts bill”), due to have its second reading in the Commons next week;
- the government’s proposed changes to judicial review procedure;
- the Law Commission’s consultation on the law of contempt of court, and
- Sir Desmond de Silva QC’s review into Pat Finucane’s murder, and the possibility of prosecutions.
We’re grateful to the boutique City law firm Preiskel & Co for being our hosts – thanks to the staff there who made us so welcome.
We get through quite a few things, with some agreement – and some fairly sharp disagreement between me and David especially on the Justice and Security Bill – but it’s a lively exchange all round, I think.
