“The disclosure of unused material as part of any prosecution is vital and the impact of not disclosing material appropriately is severe. We have been addressing recommendations from criminal justice inspectorates that identified the need for improvement in the way that disclosure is handled. We are working with the College of Policing and Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) to resolve the issues raised. As part of this we will consider the findings of the Metropolitan Police’s review of recent cases of disclosure and the impact of the amount of digital material officers now need to analyse, especially in fraud and sex offence cases.”
