star this property answer text <p>Each Department is responsible for defending actions brought against them and makes their own arrangements for doing so. There is no central record of all court cases brought against the Government and therefore it is not possible to identify either the total number of cases or the cost of them.</p><p>However, most central government bodies instruct the Government Legal Department to conduct their litigation. Since the 2010-11 financial year the Government Legal Department has been instructed by government bodies in almost 200,000 cases costing about £570 million (including VAT).</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) does not maintain a central record of the number of victims who have withdrawn support for a prosecution or the number of cases the CPS has then subsequently decided not to proceed with. This information could only be obtained by examining CPS case files, which would incur disproportionate cost.</p><p>However, while the CPS does not collect data on the number of victims who withdraw support for the prosecution, or cases which do not proceed following the withdrawal of such support, information is available to show the overall number of pre-charge decisions where a decision not to prosecute was made and unsuccessful prosecution outcomes that were flagged as rape. These outcomes can be disaggregated to show the volume and proportion that were due to victim issues, including retraction, where it was inappropriate to compel the victim, non-attendance at trial or where the evidence given did not come up to proof.</p><p>The CPS monitoring of cases involving offences of rape involves the application of a rape ‘flag’ to applicable cases that are recorded on the CPS’ electronic Case Management System (CMS). The CPS definition of rape covers any case where the following offences were considered pre-charge or were subsequently charged:</p><ul><li>Rape: Section 1 of the Sexual Offences Act 1956</li><li>Sexual intercourse with a girl under the age of 13: Section 5 of the Sexual Offences Act 1956</li><li>Rape: Section 1 of the Sexual Offences Act 2003</li><li>Rape of a child under 13: Section 5 of the Sexual Offences Act 2003</li><li>Sexual activity with a person with a mental disorder impeding choice: Section 30(3) of the Sexual Offences Act 2003</li><li>An attempt to commit any of the above offences under the Criminal Attempts Act 1981</li><li>Incitement or conspiracy to commit any of the above offences.</li></ul><p>The table below shows the volume and proportion of decisions not to prosecute due to victim issues in cases flagged as rape during each of the last seven available years.</p><table><tbody><tr><td colspan="2"><p><strong>Victim Issues</strong></p></td><td colspan="2"><p><strong>No Prosecution</strong></p></td><td colspan="2"><p><strong>Charged</strong></p></td><td rowspan="2"><p><strong>Total</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong>Volume</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>%</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Volume</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>%</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Volume</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>%</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong>2009-2010</strong></p></td><td><p>291</p></td><td><p>3.8%</p></td><td><p>4,165</p></td><td><p>54.2%</p></td><td><p>3,232</p></td><td><p>42.1%</p></td><td><p><strong>7,683</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong>2010-2011</strong></p></td><td><p>299</p></td><td><p>3.7%</p></td><td><p>4,339</p></td><td><p>53.4%</p></td><td><p>3,387</p></td><td><p>41.7%</p></td><td><p><strong>8,130</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong>2011-2012</strong></p></td><td><p>190</p></td><td><p>2.8%</p></td><td><p>3,281</p></td><td><p>48.1%</p></td><td><p>3,213</p></td><td><p>47.1%</p></td><td><p><strong>6,822</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong>2012-2013</strong></p></td><td><p>113</p></td><td><p>2.1%</p></td><td><p>2,195</p></td><td><p>40.6%</p></td><td><p>2,889</p></td><td><p>53.5%</p></td><td><p><strong>5,404</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong>2013-2014</strong></p></td><td><p>158</p></td><td><p>2.7%</p></td><td><p>1,857</p></td><td><p>31.7%</p></td><td><p>3,621</p></td><td><p>61.9%</p></td><td><p><strong>5,850</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong>2014-2015</strong></p></td><td><p>189</p></td><td><p>3.1%</p></td><td><p>1,997</p></td><td><p>32.4%</p></td><td><p>3,648</p></td><td><p>59.2%</p></td><td><p><strong>6,159</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong>2015-2016</strong></p></td><td><p>181</p></td><td><p>2.6%</p></td><td><p>2,271</p></td><td><p>33.1%</p></td><td><p>3,910</p></td><td><p>57.0%</p></td><td><p><strong>6,855</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td colspan="4"><p>Data Source: CPS Case Management Information System</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p>Victim issues include cases where the victim is called as a witness in a trial, but fails to attend court; where the evidence of the victim supports the prosecution case but the victim refuses to be called as a witness, or retracts, or withdraws a complaint; and where the evidence of the victim does not support the prosecution of the defendant, leading to an unsuccessful outcome, but the victim however, has not retracted.</p><p>The CPS will shortly be publishing its annual Violence Against Women and Girls Report for 2016-17 which will provide the most up to date assessment of rape flagged prosecutions including the key reasons for unsuccessful prosecutions.</p><p> </p>

The Attorney General has, however, announced on 15 September 2017 a Call for Evidence to consider the impact of social media on the administration of justice. The Call for Evidence will assess the risks arising from social media to the fairness of criminal trials including contempt of court, the right to anonymity of victims and the integrity of judicial orders in criminal proceedings.</p> more like this

This will ensure that, wherever possible, the same rules and laws will apply the day after exit as they did before.</p><p>The Government is still making a detailed assessment of what corrections will be required to make that law function appropriately on exit day. The Government’s current estimate is that we will need to make between 800 and 1,000 statutory instruments to make exit a reality in UK law.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The charging regime is the responsibility of Ofgem as the independent regulator. In the joint BEIS/Ofgem Smart Systems and Flexibility Plan released on 24 July 2017 it was recognised that at present network charges can put storage at a relative disadvantage to other network users, preventing a level playing field.</p><p> </p><p>The Government is keen to see fair changes to the charging regime that create a level playing field for storage. Ofgem indicated that changes to storage charging would be best and most rapidly brought forward by industry, and two modifications have now been raised to address this issue. Ofgem also expects industry to provide guidance on the treatment of storage as intermittent or non-intermittent in the distribution charging methodologies by the end of 2017.</p><p> </p> more like this
