This means calls to Child Maintenance Options from BT landlines and those made by 93 per cent of mobile users, hosted by the six major mobile provider networks, will have the cost of the call met by DWP. Calls from other networks may be free, if they are included within call packages, but this will depend on the network provider. The remaining 7 per cent of calls from mobile users will be able to call the Child Maintenance Options 0800 number free of charge from autumn 2015, which is when the OFCOM ruling requires all network providers to make calls to all 0800 numbers free of charge.</p><p> </p><p>We will also offer to call back a customer, if asked, or if concerns are raised over the cost of the call. Alternatively, customers can also use the online ‘live chat’ facility or email service which is available via the Child Maintenance Options website at <a href="http://www.cmoptions.org" target="_blank">www.cmoptions.org</a>.</p>

star this property answer text <p /> <p>As at 30 June 2014, there were 24 determinate sentence prisoners held in open conditions with more than two years left to serve before their earliest release date and 18 indeterminate sentence prisoners in open conditions with more than two years left to serve before their tariff expiry[1].</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p>Those prisoners with at least two more years left before their earliest release will either be serving a determinate sentence of four years or more, or an indeterminate sentence with a minimum tariff of two years or more. The earliest date on which an indeterminate sentence prisoner (ISP) may be released from custody is on completion of “tariff” – that is, the minimum period to be served in custody, as determined by the Court, for the purposes of retribution and deterrence.</p><p>Progression to open conditions is never automatic and only follows a satisfactory assessment of the prisoner’s reduction in risk to a level that is manageable in conditions of lower security. The assessment will take account of issues including successful completion of any offending behaviour programmes identified as essential to the risk reduction process and any security intelligence or other information that provides evidence of the prisoner’s trustworthiness for open conditions. For determinate sentence prisoners, this assessment is carried out by an operational manager in the holding prison. For ISPs, it generally involves a recommendation by the independent Parole Board.</p><p> </p><p>Once allocated to open prison, prisoners continue to be monitored and are returned to closed prison immediately if there are any concerns about their suitability for such conditions.</p><p> </p><p>When a prisoner moves to the less rigid structure of open conditions an assessment of how the prisoner will adapt to increasing responsibility. For many prisoners, in particular those such as life sentence prisoners, who have spent a considerable amount of time in custody; these can be important components for successful reintegration in the community and therefore a mechanism to help protect the public by reducing the likelihood of reoffending.</p><br /><p>[1] Please note that these figures do not include prisoners held in open conditions in non-predominant function open prisons, nor those held in open sites that are part of multi-site establishments performing different functions, nor those held in small (under 50 place) open units at predominant function closed prisons. Women and young adults are included in the figures.</p>

star this property answer text <p /> <p>Data are published in Court Statistics Quarterly showing the number of trials in magistrates’ courts which are ineffective or postponed on the day of trial. This is for a variety of agreed reasons, including “Prosecution not ready”, “Interpreter availability” and “Court administration”. However, this only includes cases that have been listed for trial and are adjourned, not for any other hearings, such as preliminary hearings, guilty plea hearings or sentencing. HMCTS does not centrally collate the data on adjourned hearings, other than trials, and the reasons behind the adjournment.</p><p> </p><p>The volume of trials listed in magistrates’ courts, and those which were ineffective, are published in Table 3.5 of Court Statistics Quarterly which can be found at: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/court-statistics-quarterly" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/court-statistics-quarterly</a></p><p> </p><p>The national Criminal Justice Board, chaired by my Rt Hon Friend the Minister for Policing, Criminal Justice and Victims, is overseeing the <em>Transforming Summary Justice </em>programme, a collaboration between police, CPS and the courts to ensure that cases in the magistrates’ courts are prepared and prosecuted in a timely and efficient manner.

The details are that he was originally sentenced to 6 years’ imprisonment on 18 July 2007, reduced to 4 years on appeal, for soliciting murder (during a rally against the cartoons satirising the prophet Mohammed in February 2006). He was released on 12 December 2008, on his conditional release date, and he was on licence until his sentence expiry date 12 October 2010.</p><p> </p><p>He was then sentenced to a total of 12 months’ imprisonment on 18 September 2012 for three offences of possessing a document or information likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism. His sentence expiry date was 7 May 2013.</p><p> </p><p>In October 2013, the Secretary of State announced that criminals convicted of terrorism offences will no longer be automatically released at the halfway point of their prison sentence. They will only be released before the end of their custodial term under strict conditions and at the discretion of the Parole Board, who must be satisfied that an offender’s risk has been addressed and can be managed in the community before they will allow release.</p>

The theft of items from graves is a heartless and callous crime which can have a devastating impact on bereaved relatives and friends. If the offenders responsible are detected they can expect to feel the full force of the law.</p><p> </p><p>The Ministry of Justice Court Proceedings Database holds information on defendants proceeded against, found guilty and sentenced for criminal offences in England and Wales. However, not all offences are individually reported within the centrally held data. Offences of grave robbery are reported as part of a wider group of offences and cannot be separately identified from other offences under the Theft Act. This detailed information is not reported to Justice Statistics Analytical Services due to its size and complexity and as such, it can only be obtained at disproportionate cost.</p> more like this
