On Tuesday 24 June 2015 Valerie intervened in a speech by Sir Keir Starmer MP, Holborn and St Pancras, and former Director of Public Prosecutions on the Crown Prosecution Service.
Speaking in the debate Valerie said:
“I welcome my hon. and learned Friend to the House—his expertise is widely welcomed here—and thank my hon. Friend the Member for Erith and Thamesmead (Teresa Pearce) for securing this debate. My hon. and learned Friend mentioned the CPS staff; does he agree that it is totally unacceptable that they have to work weekends, unpaid, with an increasing workload?”
