unstar this property answer text <p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>A football banning order is a preventative measure which is not issued as part of a sentence, or solely on the basis of an individual's conviction offence. For the purpose of deciding whether to make a banning order, a court may consider a range of prosecution evidence in support of a banning order application. <br><br>The Football Banning Orders Authority holds a range of data on extant football banning orders, including in some cases the relevant offences which initiated a banning order application. However, this is secondary to details of the banning order itself, and it is not possible in all cases to identify which banned individuals have been convicted of a racially or religiously aggravated public order offence. To do so would require a manual exercise to review individual files which would incur a disproportionate cost.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>The figures from the British Social Attitudes survey do not show an increased level of prejudice, but are actually more complex. The figures fluctuate from year to year, but the long-term trends are a decline in self-reported prejudice. Causal factors are likely to include the aftermath of the 9/11 and 7/7 attacks, different attitudes to changing immigration and (in a positive way) the 2012 Olympics. The dataset can be viewed online at:</p><p><a href="http://www.natcen.ac.uk/media/338779/selfreported-racial-prejudice-datafinal.pdf" target="_blank">http://www.natcen.ac.uk/media/338779/selfreported-racial-prejudice-datafinal.pdf</a></p><p> </p><p>The Government has a comprehensive programme of activities to build strong and more united communities, tackle hate crime, harness the work of faith groups and commemorate our common heritage.

unstar this property answer text <p>The UK remains deeply concerned by the scale of human rights violations and abuses in South Sudan since the start of the conflict in December. We have consistently stressed to all parties in the conflict the importance of thorough investigation into atrocities and the key role that accountability will play in the reconciliation and peace building process. We welcome the timely reporting of the South Sudan Human Rights Commission and the UN Human Rights division and support the African Union Commission of Inquiry on South Sudan in their investigations into the events of the last six months. My Hon Friend, the Member for Boston and Skegness (Mark Simmonds MP), the Minister for Africa, along with senior officials, has emphasised to South Sudanese Ministers the importance of full cooperation with these investigations. We will also pursue, during the 26th session of the Human Rights Council (HRC) this month, the creation of a formal HRC mandate to strengthen and enhance efforts in this area.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>We have not been able to assess the veracity of reports that Joseph Kony and senior members of the Lords Resistance Army are hiding in a Sudanese-controlled area of a disputed enclave bordering the Central African Republic. However, we are aware of reports that local authorities in south-eastern Central African Republic (CAR) have been in contact with a contingent of the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) who have expressed an interest in surrendering.</p><p>The British Government condemns in the strongest possible terms the atrocities carried out by the LRA. Although much reduced in numbers, the LRA remains an unprincipled, violent threat to civilians in the heart of Africa. The UK has consistently promoted a co-ordinated regional and international approach to defeating the LRA. We continue to encourage the UN and African Union to implement their counter-LRA strategies in full and bring Kony to justice.</p> more like this
