star this property answer text <p>I receive regular representations on many issues including the role of women in public life.</p><p>We are removing barriers that prevent women from progressing in public life. For example, the Government has established the Centre for Public Appointments (CPA) in the Cabinet Office to ensure best practice is followed. As a result, the proportion of new female appointees to public boards has increased to 39%. We have also supported political parties to increase women’s representation thorough a combination of legislative and voluntary measures.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p /> <p>The Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA) does not place a legal obligation on data controllers to report breaches of security which result in loss, release or corruption of personal data. However, the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) has made clear that serious breaches should be brought to their attention. The nature of the breach or loss can then be considered together with whether the data controller is properly meeting their responsibilities under the DPA. The DPA does not define ‘serious breaches’ but the ICO have produced guidance to assist data controllers when deciding whether to report a breach. The guidance can be found on its website at: www.ico.org.uk.</p><p>The ICO has a range of tools to allow it to respond robustly and to make sure that private and public sector organisations meet their information rights obligations, such as issuing monetary penalty notices, requiring an organisation(s) to pay up to £500,000 for serious breaches of the DPA.</p> more like this

Offender management statistics are published quarterly.

Given the social and financial costs incurred by high reoffending rates, it is imperative that we act now to help offenders turn their backs on crime. With more than half a million crimes committed each year by those who have broken the law before, the status quo is not an option. It is for this reason that the Government set out in the Coalition Agreement our commitment to reform offender rehabilitation services.</p><p> </p><p>The Government does of course understand the need to implement these reforms in a manner that ensures that public safety is maintained. This is why we have been clear that we will manage these changes in a controlled way and will not proceed until we are satisfied that it is safe to do so.
