star this property answer text <p>In order to charge and prosecute hate crimes, the CPS uses the legal definition provided by the Crime and Disorder Act 1998 and Criminal Justice Act 2003. The shared police and CPS definition of hate crime is based on the perception of the victim or any other person and allows for case flagging and monitoring as well as appropriate victim support, it does not affect the charge.</p><p>This flagging definition comes from the recommended definition in the Macpherson report which was published in 1999 as a result of the inquiry into the murder of Stephen Lawrence. The Macpherson Report found a lack of confidence within communities that hate crime was being treated seriously by the police and Criminal Justice System and recommended that the definition of a racist incident should be, ‘any incident which is perceived to be racist by the victim or any other person’. Putting the victim’s perception at the heart of the definition gives a clear signal that, once flagged as a hate crime, an appropriate investigation will follow and evidence to support the law on hostility will be proactively sought. The definition seeks to encourage victims to report and to increase confidence in the Criminal Justice System.</p>

It has accumulated significant funds through further donations and income over the years, as set out in the <strong><ins class="ministerial">attached </ins></strong>chart <del class="ministerial">below</del>. It is currently estimated to be worth over £460 million.</p><p>The terms of the deed of Trust for the National Fund are such that the Trustees are required to accumulate the net income and profits of the trust fund until the value of the fund along with its accumulated income, when added to the value of any other funds applicable for the same purpose, is sufficient to discharge the entirety of the National Debt. Given the terms of the trust, the money is currently ‘locked’ in the fund.</p><p>The Attorney General’s Office is working with the Charity Commission and the Fund’s trustees to help resolve this legally complicated matter.</p><p> </p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>Fact sheets for the preparers levy were used from 2009/10 when the preparers levy was extended to cover large private companies and public sector organisations. The fact sheets used the word “required” in explaining the rates applied to different categories of preparers. They also included similar wording to that included in the 2018/19 fact sheet which was <del class="ministerial">placed in the Library of the House in</del> <ins class="ministerial">attached to the</ins> response <ins class="ministerial">given</ins> to question HL5095. This makes clear that the Financial Reporting Council collects the levy from all preparers on a voluntary basis. The word “required” was replaced with the word “requested” to improve clarity in 2018/19.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>As you will be aware, the Balance of Competences Review concluded in December. It was the most comprehensive analysis of the UK’s relationship with the EU ever undertaken. The review involved a large number of Departments across Whitehall to produce 32 reports. The Review was based on the evidence and views received through widespread consultation with interested parties from across society. Across the whole review, departments received close to 2,300 evidence submissions. Departments held over 250 events, attended by around 2,100 stakeholders.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>It was important that what is an unprecedented examination of EU membership was done with appropriate time and care. But the government is also very conscious of the need to ensure value for money in everything it does.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>(1) Staff time</p><p> </p><p><strong>Between 2012-2013, the Balance of Competences Review Team in the Department was staffed by the equivalent of one Grade 7 (salary range £47, 545 - £55,882), and one intern (salary range £23,869 – £27, 281) dedicating 100% of their time to the review to project manage 7 BIS led reports and 1 joint report. Between 2013 – 2014 this was reduced to one Grade 7. Between 2012 – 2014 one Deputy Director (salary range £62,000 - £117,800) dedicated 20% of their time as the senior reporting officer for the review. All other work on the review was allocated, according to need, to existing staff within the Department. Therefore, providing a full breakdown of staff time and costs would exceed the disproportionate cost threshold.</strong></p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p><strong>(2) Printing costs</strong></p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p><strong>Printing and publication for the 8 Departmental reports, was coordinated centrally but paid for by the Department, with the exception of the Single Market Report which was printed in-house. Printing and publication costs for all 8 reports totalled £32,821.94. The costs for all 32 reports was £133, 053 </strong><ins class="ministerial"> This figure was a partial figure, covering the printing of some, but not all, reports across the whole review.</ins></p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p><strong>(3) Running of Engagement events</strong></p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p><strong>Each policy team in the Department held a wide range of engagement events over the 2 years; the department did not incur any costs for the running of these events. The facilities for hosting these events were either provided by other Government Departments or by business partners or were held on department premises at no extra cost to the department. </strong></p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p><strong>(4) Witness </strong></p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p><strong>From centrally held figures, we understand that across the whole of the Balance of Competences Review witness expenses amounted to approximately £2,255.00.</strong></p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p><strong>(5) Publicity</strong></p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p><strong>The Department did not incur any publicity costs as we published the reports and the call for evidence via email, social media and the Government website.</strong></p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p><strong>(6) All other associated costs</strong></p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p><strong>Between 2012 – 2014 the Department commissioned research and analysis to form part of the literature review to provide the reports with legal analysis to ensure the reports were neither too analytical or too speculative and political, but instead adhere to the agreed treaties. The cost for all 8 reports was £108, 738.28. </strong></p><p> </p><p><strong><br /> Department officials incurred some additional associated costs due to travel to meetings and stakeholder events in the UK. Some officials also incurred costs related to events in Brussels. We estimate that the additional travel costs incurred amounted to less than £300.</strong></p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>
