star this property answer text <p>The Treasury Solicitor’s Department holds records relating only to those cases in which it has acted. The Treasury Solicitor represents most, but not all, government departments in litigation. For example, Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs normally conducts its own litigation. According to records held by the Treasury Solicitor, the number of judicial reviews involving government departments in which it has acted in each of the last four years is as follows:</p><p>2010 – 8,566</p><p>2011 – 9,603</p><p>2012 – 10,274</p><p>2013 – 16,449</p><p>Information relating to how many of those reviews were upheld in whole or in part in each year is not held centrally and could not be created without incurring disproportionate cost.</p><p><del class="ministerial">The Administrative Court Office does not collate the information requested centrally and determining the number of reviews and how many such reviews were upheld in whole or in part would incur a disproportionate cost.</del></p><p><ins class="ministerial">The information requested in respect of the Administrative Court Office is published online at <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/267408/additional-court-tables-2012.xls" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/267408/additional-court-tables-2012.xls</a> .

This includes allegations or crimes perpetrated by both adults and persons under the age of 18. Child abuse includes physical, emotional and sexual criminal offences, as well as neglect of a child and historical child abuse where the victim is now an adult. The data provided is primarily used for monitoring performance on cases that involve allegations of child abuse. The data relies on the application of a monitoring flag and is accurate only to the extent that the flag is correctly applied.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The CPS has published a breakdown of both pre-charge decisions and prosecutions for child abuse flagged cases within the annual ‘Violence against Women and Girls Report 2013-14’.</p><p> </p> more like this

For example, under the previous regime, the European Convention on Extradition, some Member States can refuse to surrender their own nationals, including France, Germany and Spain, which is not the position in EAW cases.

With those changes in place, the Government is convinced that the EAW provides an effective and cost-efficient tool in the fight against trans-national crime, and it is one which prosecutors and other law enforcement professionals are keen to see preserved.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>Offences of breaching immigration law may be prosecuted by way of Section 25 of the Immigration Act 1971 (assisting unlawful immigration to a European Union Member State) or by way of Section 1 of the Criminal Law Act (conspiracy).</p><p>The offence created by Section 25 of the Immigration Act 1971 encompasses both the offence of assisting illegal entry (whether by smuggling someone in a vehicle or by providing false documents for presentation at a port) or by assisting someone to remain by deception (for example, by entering into a sham marriage) which facilitate a breach of the immigration laws. Conspiracies to facilitate breaches of immigration law are charged by way of Section 1 of the Criminal Law Act 1977.</p><p>The records held by the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) indicate the number of offences charged, in which a prosecution commenced at magistrates’ courts for assisting unlawful immigration or conspiracy. However it is not possible to disaggregate which of these offences relate to sham marriages rather than other immigration law breaches without reviewing individual case files which would incur a disproportionate cost.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The Serious Fraud Office (SFO) has a core budget to investigate and, where appropriate, prosecute the most serious and complex cases of fraud, bribery and corruption, and some exceptionally large cases will arise that require additional resources. However it is not in the public interest to specify in detail what resources the SFO intends to dedicate to each case.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Law Officers’ Departments are committed to reducing their energy usage and where it is cost effective to do would consider replacing lighting with LED systems. However there are currently no plans to implement a replacement programme to introduce LED lighting throughout the Law Officers' Departments' buildings and sites, most of which are leasehold.</p><p>At present, neither of the buildings currently occupied by the Attorney General’s Office or Serious Fraud Office have any LED lighting, and the Treasury Solicitor’s Department and HM Crown Prosecution Service Inspectorate only have LED lighting in the lift lobby area of their main building.</p><p>The CPS have replaced the lighting on one floor of their headquarters building with an LED system, but do not hold a central record of the technical specifications of the lighting systems in use in all of its buildings. To verify the details of all lighting systems would incur a disproportionate cost.</p><p>The Law Officers’ Departments reduced CO2 emissions by 29% in 2012/13 exceeding the Greening Government Commitment (GGC) target to reduce CO2 emissions by 25% by 2014/15 compared to 2009/10.</p>
