Leveson Inquiry releases joint submission from CPS and MPS

The Leveson Inquiry has today made public a joint submission it received from the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) and Metropolitan Police Service (MPS).

A CPS spokesperson said: "A joint submission from the Crown Prosecution Service and Metropolitan Police Service was submitted to the Leveson Inquiry this morning (Wednesday 26 October). This clearly sets out how we intend to assist the Inquiry to balance its aspiration that Part 1 should be thorough, without inadvertently making it difficult for a criminal trial to take place. The CPS, MPS and the Inquiry are all working together to achieve this common goal and the CPS will do all it can to assist the Inquiry as it progresses."
