star this property answer text <p>The Government’s position in relation to funding Surface Access at airports is set out in the 2013 Aviation Policy Framework and reiterated in the Airports National Policy Statement which was designated in June 2018. Where a scheme is not solely required to deliver airport capacity and has a wider range of beneficiaries, the Government, along with relevant stakeholders, will consider the need for a public funding contribution alongside an appropriate contribution from the airport on a case by case basis. The Government is supporting Heathrow Surface Access schemes subject to the development of a satisfactory business case and the agreement of acceptable terms with the Heathrow aviation industry.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p /> <p>I am replying as the Ministry of Justice has overall responsibility for this legislation. The Government is absolutely clear that stalking and harassment, which cause misery for victims, are totally unacceptable. That is why in 2012 we added to the existing offences in the Protection from Harassment Act 1997 (harassment (section 2) and putting people in fear of violence (section 4)) two new specific offences of stalking (section 2A) and stalking involving fear of violence or serious alarm or distress (section 4A).</p><p> </p><p>The 1997 Act also gives the courts the option, upon conviction or acquittal for an offence under it, of making a restraining order for the purpose of protecting the victim of an offence, or any other person mentioned in the order, from conduct that amounts to harassment or that will cause fear of violence. Breach of such an order is a criminal offence carrying a maximum sentence of five years in prison, or a fine, or both.</p><p> </p><p>The number of offenders convicted on one, two, or three or more occasions, in each of the last five years for which data is available, of breaching a restraining order can be viewed in the table below. These figures have been drawn from an extract of the Police National Computer (PNC) data held by the Department. The PNC holds details of all convictions and cautions given for recordable offences. As with any large scale recording system the PNC is subject to possible errors with data entry and processing so data provided may be subject to revision.<br></p><p> </p><p /> <p> </p><p /><table><tbody><tr><td colspan="4"><p><strong>Number of offenders breaching restraining orders<sup>1</sup>, England and Wales<sup>2</sup></strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong> </strong></p></td><td colspan="3"><p><strong>Number of restraining order breach offences<sup>3</sup></strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong>12 months ending September<sup>4</sup></strong></p></td><td><p><strong>1</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>3 or more</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2010</p></td><td><p>1,655</p></td><td><p>211</p></td><td><p>71</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2011</p></td><td><p>2,738</p></td><td><p>456</p></td><td><p>138</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2012</p></td><td><p>3,638</p></td><td><p>607</p></td><td><p>216</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2013</p></td><td><p>4,086</p></td><td><p>710</p></td><td><p>221</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2014</p></td><td><p>4,822</p></td><td><p>767</p></td><td><p>244</p></td></tr><tr><td colspan="3"><p><strong>Data Source</strong>: MoJs copy of the Police National Computer</p></td><td><p> </p></td></tr><tr><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td></tr><tr><td><p><sup>1.</sup> Includes offences covered by:</p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td></tr><tr><td colspan="4"><p>- Breach of a restraining order under s5 of the Protection from Harassment Act 1997</p></td></tr><tr><td colspan="4"><p>- Breach of restraining Order under s5A of the Sex Offenders Act 1997 (Sexual Offences Prevention Orders replaced restraining orders under s.5A Sex Offenders Act 1997.

Hence, police recorded crime and court proceedings data are not directly comparable.</p><p> </p><p>As the Violence Against Women and Girls Report (Home Office, 2015) notes: “Increases in reporting of domestic abuse incidents indicate that victims have more confidence in the criminal justice system. Prosecutions for domestic abuse have increased while out of court disposals for domestic abuse at the pre-charge stage have reached their lowest levels, and we have seen increases in the volume of prosecutions and conviction rate for all VAWG offences. These figures are showing that not only are victims more confident in coming forward – the criminal justice system is delivering improved outcomes for them.”</p>
