star this property answer text <p>The Law Officers' Departments have been actively reducing their estate running costs since 2010 in line with Government policy and have already made significant savings.</p><p>The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) estate rationalisation programme began in 2009 and is set to be completed in 2016, with most of the leases on empty property having expired by then. This programme has already led to a reduction in expenditure and increased efficiency. The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) has paid £320,178.38 in property business rates in the current financial year on the properties which are currently recorded as vacant on the ePIMS database as at 14 March 2014. The costs figure has been produced by DTZ who are CPS' managing agents and has not yet been audited.</p><p>The Treasury Solicitor's Department owns a lease on a building which has some vacant space. This building attracts full business rates in the current financial year. This lease is due to expire in 2016. The estimated business rates for the vacant proportion of the property for 2013/14 are £59 372.71</p><p>The remaining Law Officers' Departments do not have any vacant properties.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>I have made no formal appraisal, but Crown prosecution Service (CPS) guidance to prosecutors sets out the circumstances in which witness summonses can best be used in such cases. This guidance is published on the CPS website at: <a href="http://www.cps.gov.uk/legal/d_to_g/domestic_violence_aide-memoire/#a25" target="_blank">http://www.cps.gov.uk/legal/d_to_g/domestic_violence_aide-memoire/#a25</a></p><p>Witness summonses can be effective in ensuring complainants attend court when they would not otherwise do so. They can also support victims who are concerned about how a voluntary decision to attend court might be perceived by ‘removing' the pressure of making that decision for them. Where a victim attends as a result of a witness summons, there is often a guilty plea.</p><p>However, it is also possible that a witness will still not attend, or may come to court but refuse to give evidence.</p><p> </p> more like this
