star this property answer text <p>The UK Government currently does not plan to pay the Settled Status Fee for its non-UK EU citizen employees. The fee is set at an affordable rate (£65), less than the cost of an UK passport. Outsourced workers are not employees of the Department and therefore this would be a decision for their employers.</p><p> </p><p>The number of non-UK EU citizens employed across the Civil Service is not consistently collected across Government. It is therefore not possible to estimate the cost of paying the settled status fee for non-UK EU nationals employed directly by the department.</p><p> </p><p>We value the significant contribution made by EU citizens working in the Civil Service and we want these colleagues to continue to play a full role in the work of the Civil Service. We are committed to supporting our EU citizen employees across the Civil Service, the important engagement with EU national networks across government will continue over the coming months.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government takes very seriously its responsibility to keep prisoners safe, and we are committed to reducing the number of self-inflicted deaths and the incidence of self-harm across the estate. This is why we have established a prison safety programme through which we are taking forward a comprehensive set of actions to improve safety in custody. They include:</p><ul><li>investing in over 4,300 additional staff in order to deliver consistent, purposeful regimes;</li><li>improving staff knowledge and understanding of the factors known to increase risk of self-harm, to help them to identify and respond appropriately to prisoners at risk. Our revised introduction to suicide and self-harm prevention training has already reached over 24,000 staff;</li><li>improving the flow, quality and use of risk information about people coming into our prisons, to support effective decision-making about risk;</li><li>producing an early days toolkit to help staff enhance the support that they provide for prisoners during the first few days and weeks in custody;</li><li>renewing our partnership with Samaritans by confirming a further three years’ funding for their valuable Listeners Scheme, and working with them to share learning from the ‘Coping with Life in Prisons’ project, a successful pilot initiative in which Samaritans-trained ex-prisoners delivered emotional resilience training to groups of newly-arrived prisoners; and</li><li>improving the multi-disciplinary ACCT case management process for those identified as at risk of self-harm or suicide.</li></ul>

star this property answer text <p>Nobody should be released from prison without a roof over their head. We know that individuals are less likely to reoffend if they have a stable home to go to upon release. The Ministry of Justice is already working very closely with the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government to improve the accommodation opportunities for those with a history of offending.</p><p> </p><p>The two departments are also working together through their membership of the cross-government Reducing Reoffending Board and the cross-government Rough Sleeping and Homelessness Taskforce.</p><p> </p><p>This includes supporting the delivery of the Rough Sleeping Strategy, which was published in August 2018. As part of this Strategy, the Government is investing £6.4M in a joint pilot to support individuals who have served 12 months or less in custody, and who are at risk of being released as homeless, to secure and maintain accommodation.</p><p> </p><p>Since 1 October, Prisons and Probation providers have been subject to a legal ‘Duty to Refer’ anyone who is homeless or at risk of becoming homeless to the Local Authority. This change means that offenders will receive meaningful housing assistance at an earlier stage, irrespective of their priority need.</p>

This means that, from next April, prison governors will have direct control of their education budgets, will decide the curriculum and will have chosen the provider(s) of their education, promoting learning that best meets the needs of their prisoners.</p><p> </p><p>Alongside the Prison Education Framework, we have launched a Prison Education Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS), with over 170 education providers offering a huge range of learning and skills. It is through the DPS that prisons will secure Information, Advice and Guidance which enables prisoners to make informed choices about their education and future employment options.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>As set out in the Written Ministerial Statement issued by my Honourable friend Rory Stewart on 29 November, this Government remains committed to a role for the private sector in operating custodial services. The Prison Operator Services framework competition launched on 6 December seeks to build on the innovation and different ways of working that the private sector has previously introduced to the system. The sector has an important role to play, and currently runs some high-performing prisons, in the delivery of an estate which is both decent and secure.</p><p> </p><p>The Ministry of Justice does not mandate staffing numbers in privately operated prisons. It is the responsibility of the contractor to determine and maintain the number of staff necessary to discharge the requirements of the contract and ensure that staff are sufficiently trained to undertake their duties.</p><p> </p><p>As part of the competition process we will undertake rigorous operational and financial assessments of bids put forward, including staffing commitments. The performance of all providers is, and will continue to be, robustly managed and contracts for the operation of new prisons will not be awarded unless bids meet quality and value for money thresholds.</p>

The Draft Amending Budget for the UK’s application to the European Union Solidarity Fund (EUSF), relating to damage incurred through flooding in Winter 2015-16, has now been approved by the European Council and the European Parliament. As explained in the Written Ministerial Statement by the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government on 16 January 2017, the funding received following this application does not offer additional support, but is to reimburse a small portion of the significant financial support that has already been provided‎ by the Government. more like this
