star this property answer text <p>The independent Crime Survey for England and Wales shows that crime has fallen by more than a quarter since June 2010. While better police recording of violent crime appears to have led to a recent statistical rise, knife crime offences remain 18% below the level in the year to June 2010 and figures for London show that knife crime offences are now 24% lower than June 2010. In the year ending March 2015, the Metropolitan police recorded 9,623 offences involving a knife or sharp instrument, a 4% decrease compared with the previous year (10,012 in year ending March 2014). Police forces do not break down offence data by age.</p><p>We are taking a range of steps to tackle knife crime, including working with police forces and other key partners through the Ending Gang and Youth Violence programme, including in 25 London boroughs. We have also strengthened the law in this area, and in July 2015, we brought into force the new legislative provision that anyone caught in possession of a knife for a second time will now face a mandatory minimum sentence in prison or youth custody.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Under current funding arrangements for schools in England, local authorities devise funding formulae through which to distribute funding to schools in their localities. One of the factors local authorities can include is ‘English as an additional language’ (EAL). In 2014-15, a total of £244 million was allocated through this factor to school budgets. In 2015-16, it was £267 million, and in 2016-17, £282 million. The table below provides these figures by region. These figures do not represent the cost of supporting pupils with EAL. The amounts form part of the school’s core budget and it is then for school leaders to determine how best to use their whole budget so that all pupils can reach their full potential.</p><p> </p><p>We will introduce a national funding formula from 2018-19 so that funding is fair and matched to need. Our first consultation, launched earlier this year, proposed that the formula should include an EAL factor. We will set out the precise detail of the formula in our second consultation, to be published later this autumn.</p><p> </p><p><strong>Table 1: The amount of the schools Dedicated Schools Grant local authorities allocate to the EAL factor in the last three years, by region</strong></p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p><strong>Region</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Amount allocated to EAL factor 2014-15</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Amount allocated to EAL factor 2015-16</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Amount allocated to EAL factor 2016-17</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>East Midlands</p></td><td><p>£11m</p></td><td><p>£13m</p></td><td><p>£13m</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>East of England</p></td><td><p>£20m</p></td><td><p>£23m</p></td><td><p>£24m</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>London</p></td><td><p>£105m</p></td><td><p>£112m</p></td><td><p>£115m</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>North East</p></td><td><p>£5m</p></td><td><p>£5m</p></td><td><p>£5m</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>North West</p></td><td><p>£27m</p></td><td><p>£30m</p></td><td><p>£33m</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>South East</p></td><td><p>£29m</p></td><td><p>£32m</p></td><td><p>£35m</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>South West</p></td><td><p>£10m</p></td><td><p>£12m</p></td><td><p>£13m</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>West Midlands</p></td><td><p>£17m</p></td><td><p>£18m</p></td><td><p>£19m</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Yorkshire and the Humber</p></td><td><p>£20m</p></td><td><p>£22m</p></td><td><p>£24m</p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong>Grand total</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>£244m</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>£267m</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>£282m</strong></p></td></tr></tbody></table>
