The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) is to ensure that prosecution witnesses in Crown Court cases receive better treatment by giving the Witness Service a list of people they expect to attend court. Under the new scheme, the CPS will pass on to the Witness Service, which is run by Victim Support, The List of Witnesses to Attend Court, which contains the names and addresses of prosecution witnesses likely to give evidence in court. This will allow the Witness Service to contact witnesses in advance of their appearance in court, to inform them about the services that are available on the day and to offer pre-trial familiarisation visits. Dame Barbara Mills QC, the Director of Public Prosecutions, said: "Witnesses will receive even better care from volunteers who look after them in court."
