from the Under-Secretary of State for Justice, my hon. Friend the Member for Esher and Walton (Mr Raab), that there is no agreement on judicial co-operation in that MOU.

[Official Report, 5 January 2016, Vol. 604, c. 97.]

Letter of correction from Mr Ellwood.

An error has been identified in the answer I gave to the right hon. Member for Leeds Central (Hilary Benn). The correct response should have been:

Mr Ellwood: The right hon. Gentleman specifically asked about—or made reference to—judicial co-operation under the memorandum of understanding. I understand from the Under-Secretary of State for Justice, my hon. Friend the Member for Esher and Walton (Mr Raab), that there is no judicial co-operation taking place under that MOU.
