star this property answer text <p /> <p>Lady Justice Macur’s Review is entirely independent of Government and its timetable is a matter for her . She is on record as saying that her Review would be thorough and that she would not draw any conclusions until she had considered all the evidence. I am, however, confident that good progress has been made and the Review is nearing its completion. The Government looks forward to receiving Lady Justice Macur’s Report next year.</p> more like this

Cafcass has commissioned the Family Justice Young People's Board to review how children and young people provide feedback to Cafcass and advise on ways to encourage more feedback both via formal and informal routes. Cafcass now has various methods of obtaining feedback from the children and young people it works with which include more formal methods such as feedback forms and more informal and child-friendly methods such as ‘feedback trees'. Feedback trees encourage children to write out or draw their feelings on how Cafcass has worked with them, allowing Cafcass practitioners to build on this feedback.

star this property answer text <p>The Ministry of Justice is committed to promoting equality and diversity in its procurements. Section 149 of the Equality Act 2010 outlines the Public Sector Equality Duty. The following three duties which form the basis of Departments' policy and to which due regard must be given during the procurement process:</p><p> </p><p>1. Eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment, victimisation and any other conduct prohibited by the Act;</p><p>2. Advance equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and people who do not share it.</p><p>3. Foster good relations between people who share a protected characteristic and people who do not share it.</p><p> </p><p>The level of due regard given to the three duties will vary depending on their relevance to each individual procurement. There will be greater significance for example where the procurement involves direct contact with the public or employees of the Department or where services are to be carried out in the Department's premises.</p><p> </p><p>Where a need to consider equality has been identified at the beginning of a procurement process, consideration to this is given at every stage of the process as detailed below:</p><p> </p><p>· Planning and preparation includes the consideration of whether the duties are relevant to the procurement.</p><p>· The Pre-Qualification stage of the tender process contains mandatory fields including questions to make sure that the bid is in line with legislation. Suppliers that do not pass these questions are not progressed onto the next stage.</p><p>· The Request for Information and Request for Quotation contain questions in line with legislation. These question are proportionate so as not to disadvantage smaller suppliers.</p><p>· The evaluation of tenders can include equality criteria if it formed part of the specification. However, if included, the criteria are given proportionate consideration to the bid as a whole.</p><p>· Contract award where the specification set out equality criteria can be used to determine the most economically advantageous tender</p><p>· Ongoing consideration is given to the equality duties in every review meeting for those relevant contracts.</p><p> </p><p>In addition to these processes implemented during the procurement process, the Department reports annually its obligations to the Cabinet Office. All procurement staff within the Department are required to undertake mandatory Equality and Diversity Training which makes sure that the duty can be considered and applied correctly.</p><p> </p>
