Lucy Frazer revealed that one of her last successes as acting Solicitor General was to hear the outcome of her intervention.
The Court of Appeal increased the prison sentence on a man convicted of possessing indecent images of children.
She had referred his original sentence to the Court of Appeal under the Unduly Lenient Sentence scheme.
However, she has moved from the Ministry of Justice – where officially she had been Minister of State but stood in while the Solicitor General was on maternity leave – to the Treasury.
Her role had been as prisons and probation minister.
