star this property answer text <p>Last year the Charity Commission wrote to the Attorney General requesting his consent to refer five questions to the First-Tier Tribunal concerning the Corporation of the Hall of Arts and Sciences – i.e. the Royal Albert Hall, which is a registered charity. While the Charity Commission has the power to refer questions to the Tribunal, it may only do so with the consent of the Attorney General, as set out in section 325 of the Charities Act 2011.</p><p> </p><p>This is a complex case involving the application of modern day charity law to an organisation established over 150 years ago. Before making an assessment as to whether consent should be given to the Commission’s request, both the Corporation and the Commission were invited to make further representations to the Attorney General’s Office. It is important that these are considered carefully, taking into account all relevant factors. While it is not possible to provide an exact estimate as to when a decision will be made, the matter is being given careful thought with a view to reaching a decision as soon as possible.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) does not maintain a central record of offences recorded against crime types. However, the CPS does collect data which reports the number of prosecuted defendants allocated to twelve Principal Offence Categories which is collated in financial years.</p><p> </p><p>The tables in Annex A show the number of finalised prosecution outcomes by Principal Offence during each year from 2010-11 to 2017-18 in the West Midlands CPS Area and in England.</p><p> </p><p>During the 8 year period reported in the table, magistrates’ courts caseload has fallen by 31% and Crown Court caseload by 23% in the West Midlands Area, compared to falls of 47% and 34% respectively across England as a whole.</p><p> </p><p>Despite the falling caseload it is important to be aware that the types of cases prosecuted in the West Midlands and England have changed significantly in the period between 2010 and 2018. The CPS is prosecuting more serious and complex cases in the West Midlands Area as evidenced by a 46% rise in homicide (35% in England), a 34% increase in fraud and forgery (compared to a fall of 17% in England) and a 55% increase in sexual offences cases (26% in England). During this period, minor motoring cases have fallen by 67% in the Area with a similar fall reflected across England. This followed changes to the list of specified offences made in 2012 which transferred responsibility for prosecuting many low level motoring offences back to the police</p>

This information could only be obtained by examining CPS case files, which would incur disproportionate cost.</p><p> </p><p>As part of the work under the National Disclosure Improvement Plan, the CPS has introduced new data collection measures designed to monitor disclosure performance. These measures include all prosecutors now being required to confirm at the conclusion of every case that has been stopped after charge whether disclosure had a primary or contributory impact on the outcome. This will allow us to capture more data than ever before on cases in which disclosure does not ultimately cause the case to end but where it was a secondary factor, and will enable performance to be examined by police and prosecutors at local, regional and national level and to drive further improvements. The first set of this data will be published in due course.</p>
