star this property answer text <p>In 2015 the then Director of Public Prosecutions commissioned Sir Richard Henriques to conduct an Independent Inquiry into allegations made against Lord Greville Janner, which was published on 19 January 2016. Sir Richard was asked to conduct a thorough and independent review into the approach and decision making of the CPS in relation to past investigations by Leicestershire Police which concluded in 1991, 2002 and 2007. He made a number of recommendations with regard to CPS procedures and guidance. This inquiry was separate to and independent of the prosecution of Lord Janner which concluded in March 2016.</p><p> </p><p>As to the Independent Review of the Metropolitan Police Service's handling of non-recent sexual offence investigations in 2016, I refer the noble Lord to my previous answer [HL14520].</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The CPS is determined to bring those responsible for Female Genital Mutilation to justice, and recently obtained the first conviction for such a case, in London. CPS prosecutors work closely with the police from the outset of these cases to address the challenges they raise, including legal questions concerning jurisdiction and expert evidence, and have assigned FGM leads for every CPS Area. Whilst prosecution alone will not end this appalling crime, this first conviction sends out a strong message that FGM is child abuse and that the perpetrators will be brought to justice.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>On 9 April 2018, the Government published a new Serious Violence Strategy to take action to address serious violence and in particular the recent increases in knife crime, gun crime and homicide. The Serious Violence Strategy stresses the importance of early intervention to tackle the root causes of serious violence and to provide young people with the skills and resilience to lead productive lives free from violence. The CPS is working with its cross-government partners to deliver the Strategy, and welcomes a public health prevention strategy relating to serious violence reduction.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The traditions of individuals and congregations in the Church of England is not always easily identifiable, and it is often very difficult to label individuals and congregations accordingly. However, the Church is aware of its diversity of traditions and is committed to the growth of the whole Church. A key factor in all senior appointments is the energy candidates bring to evangelism and encouraging confident Christian witness, and of course, different candidates will step into this space in different ways.</p><p>The Church’s Strategic Learning Community and Senior Leadership Development programmes have been created to bring together clergy from across the church, from all traditions and backgrounds. More information about this work can be found here: <a href="https://www.churchofengland.org/about/renewal-reform/nurturing-senior-leaders" target="_blank">https://www.churchofengland.org/about/renewal-reform/nurturing-senior-leaders</a> However, it is worth noting that both of the current Archbishops identify as having come from an evangelical background, as well as many other diocesan bishops in the Church of England.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government remains open to discussing a Sector Deal with the steel industry, and has been meeting regularly with companies in this sector to continue this conversation. To support the sector develop a long-term strategy, BEIS commissioned independent research which identified future domestic market opportunities for the UK steel sector worth an additional £3.8 billion per year. We are actively encouraging this sector to come forward with plans to exploit these opportunities, and remain committed to work with the sector, trade unions, and devolved administrations to help deliver these plans.</p><p> </p><p>The Government is committed to minimising energy costs for businesses – including the steel industry – to ensure that the UK economy remains strong and competitive. We recognise that the UK’s industrial electricity costs are currently higher than those of our competitors, and so we have taken steps to reduce the cumulative impact of energy and climate change policies on the price of industrial electricity for key industries, such as steel. This includes providing the steel sector with over £285m of compensation since 2013 for the indirect costs due to the EU Emission Trading System, carbon price support mechanism, Renewable Obligation, and small-scale Feed-in Tariff.</p><p> </p><p>The Government has also announced an Industrial Energy Transformation Fund – on which we are currently consulting – backed by up to £315m of investment, to help businesses with high energy use cut their bills through increased energy efficiency, and transition UK industry to a low carbon future.</p><p> </p><p>The steel sector is actively engaged with UK Research and Innovation in shaping the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund: we are providing up to £66m for the ‘Transforming Foundation Industries Challenge’, subject to industry co-funding. In addition, up to a further £170 million has been provided to develop a ‘net-zero carbon’ industrial cluster, that will help heavy industries – including steel – to share expertise, and innovate low-carbon solutions as we move to a greener, cleaner economy.</p>
