star this property answer text <p>In line with the requirements of the Greening Government Commitment Targets, the Law Officers’ Departments are taking steps to reduce water consumption and costs. Reductions have been achieved through a range of measures including the introduction of water meters and water flow restrictors to reduce usage in washrooms. Reductions in the size of the estate and in staff numbers have also contributed to the decline in water consumption.</p><p>Against the 2009/10 benchmark of 69,068 cubic metres, consumption was reduced by 40% to 41,164 cubic metres by the end of reporting year 2012/13. Projections for reporting year 2013/14 indicate further improvement.</p><p> </p><p>Specific information on the Law Officers’ Departments consumption of water and any associated expenditure during the last financial year is published in their respective Annual Report and Resource Accounts. These also detail actions undertaken to reduce usage. Copies of these are already available in the Library of the House or can found on the <a href="https://www.gov.uk/" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/</a> website.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>On 6 October 2014 the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) accepted guilty pleas to one count of making an explosive substance, three counts of possessing a prohibited firearm and one count of putting a person in fear of violence by harassment. The pleas were accepted on the basis that if Harry Street’s mental health ever deteriorated to the same extent it had in 1978 he was undoubtedly capable of deploying the weapons.</p><p>The decision not to proceed with the four remaining counts was taken in accordance with the Code for Crown Prosecutors which provides: “Prosecutors should only accept the defendant’s plea if they think the court is able to pass a sentence that matches the seriousness of the offending”. In view of the evidence before the court, it was clear to the CPS that the sentence imposed by the court would be a restricted hospital order under section 37 and section 41 of the Mental Health Act 1983 whether he was convicted of all counts, or those which were accepted as pleas.</p><p>In making a restricted hospital order, the Learned Judge fully supported the approach taken by the CPS. The court ordered the remaining counts to lie on the file not to proceed without the leave of the court.</p><p>The decision to accept the guilty pleas on 6 October 2014 was taken following full consultation with the victims/ victims’ families for both the recent offences and the 1978 offences.</p>

There are some organisations that regularly prosecute cases as a private prosecutor before the courts of England and Wales, for example the RSPCA. Furthermore, there are other prosecution authorities that bring prosecutions pursuant to statute, including the Serious Fraud Office and the Service Prosecuting Authority.
