Motion text

That this House notes the judgment of 25 June 2021 in the case of Parker v. Financial Conduct Authority Anor England and Wales Court of Appeal (Criminal Division), including the concluding paragraph 104 stating the point made at the outset that Mr Parker had been badly let down by the criminal justice system, that the court could not fully restore his money to him and that a responsible person informed the court that the Lord Chancellor has a fund from which ex gratia payments can be made; notes that the appeal court justices strongly recommended the Lord Chancellor to consider Mr Parker's situation sympathetically in the extraordinary circumstances of this case, noting that he should not be left in the position where his successful appeal has failed to achieve the fair result that would ordinarily follow from the setting aside by the appeal court of an erroneous determination under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002; agrees with the concluding clause that were there any possibility to put this right it would go a long way towards restoring his faith in British justice; asks the Permanent Secretary and the Lord Chancellor to consider the multiple representations made by the hon. Member for Worthing West and by David Parker, and to count how many officials have had responsibility for meeting the judges' recommendation; and calls on the Lord Chancellor to speak with David Parker and his MP before 21 July 2022 to discuss how his losses will be made up.
