star this property answer text <p>I take very seriously my responsibility as Leader of the House to encourage Ministers to be punctual in answering written questions. My office immediately approach departments who have not responded to questions after 10 working days, and remain in contact with them until the questions are answered. This process was followed with HM Treasury for the 12 questions that remained unanswered after 10 working days on 11 March. All of those questions have now been answered. At the end of this Session I will publish data on each department’s promptness in dealing with Questions for Written Answer to allow for proper scrutiny of their performance.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Attorney General has no plans to ask HM Chief Inspector of the Crown Prosecution Service to carry out an inquiry into the decision not to prosecute for the Arndale Centre plot. The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) concluded that there was insufficient evidence that was admissible in a criminal court in this jurisdiction to afford a realistic prospect of conviction. The Attorney General has no reason to doubt the CPS’s conclusion.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Since the reform of the Housing Revenue Account and the introduction of Self-Financing in April 2012, a proportion of receipts are paid to Treasury in order to (a) reflect the reduction in the amount owed by local authorities to Treasury as part of the Self-Financing Settlement and (b) to tackle the budget deficit left by the last Administration.</p><p> </p><p>The attached table shows those parts of the receipts arising from Right to Buy (or equivalent) sales received in each London borough in the previous five financial years and the first three quarters of the current financial year which have been indicated as payable to the Treasury. Since the reinvigoration of Right to Buy in April 2012, the 29 London stock-holding authorities have retained approximately £406 million for the purposes of providing replacement social housing in their local areas.</p><p> </p><p>Overall, Right to Buy increases housing investment and housing construction. Since the Right to Buy was reinvigorated across England, £730 million in sales receipts are being re-invested in affordable house building; levering a further £1.7 billion of investment over the next 2 years. This means that in total, over £2.4 billion will be raised to invest in affordable house building as a result of Right to Buy.</p><p> </p><p>In England, council house building starts are now at a 23 year high and almost twice as many council homes have been built in the last 4 years than from 1997 to 2009. Previously, councils were not encouraged to build new homes from sales receipts and only 1 new council home was built for every 170 Right to Buy sales completed under the last Administration.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>In the 2014 People Survey, 25 staff respondents declaring a long-standing physical or mental health condition, illness, impairment or disability reported that they had personally experienced bullying or harassment at work in the past 12 months. 62 staff respondents declaring that they did not have a long-standing physical or mental health condition, illness, impairment or disability reported that they had personally experienced bullying or harassment at work in the past 12 months.</p><p> </p><p>Whilst these figures are below the Civil Service average, the Department does not tolerate any form of bullying and harassment. Clear steps have been taken since the days of the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister which was accused of a culture of bullying (Office of the Deputy Prime Minister Select Committee, January 2006, HC 559).</p><p> </p><p>We have a clear policy that sets out the behaviours that are expected of all staff, and the behaviours that will not be tolerated and will result in disciplinary action. The policy also makes clear how staff should address any concerns they may have. Individual members of staff also have access to that policy and to a confidential employee assistance programme operated by an external provider that offers support, advice and counselling.</p>

star this property answer text <p /> <p>The Ministry of Justice conducted a review of ways to reduce distress that some victims suffer from cross-examination in trials of sexual violence. For the purposes of the review, sexual violence was an umbrella term which covered offences charged under sexual offences legislation as well as other legislation that deals with abuse and exploitation of children and vulnerable people. The review included current day and historical offending so that victims of all ages and types were considered.</p><p> </p><p>A report of the review was published in March 2014 on the government website and is available at the following link: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/report-on-review-of-ways-to-reduce-distress-of-victims-in-trials-of-sexual-violence" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/report-on-review-of-ways-to-reduce-distress-of-victims-in-trials-of-sexual-violence</a>.</p><p> </p><p>In September last year, we published Our Commitment to Victims which included plans to protect vulnerable victims and witnesses in court. Measures outlined include giving vulnerable witnesses greater opportunity to give evidence from a location away from the courtroom, rolling out pre-trial recorded cross-examination for child victims (subject to the evaluation of pilots) and requiring publicly-funded advocates in cases involving serious sexual offences to undertake specialist training on dealing with vulnerable people. The latter was a recommendation from the review.</p>
