star this property answer text <p>The National Fund was created in 1928 with an initial anonymous donation of £500,000 with the aim of eventually extinguishing the national debt. It has accumulated significant funds through further donations and income over the years, as set out in the <strong><ins class="ministerial">attached </ins></strong>chart <del class="ministerial">below</del>. It is currently estimated to be worth over £460 million.</p><p>The terms of the deed of Trust for the National Fund are such that the Trustees are required to accumulate the net income and profits of the trust fund until the value of the fund along with its accumulated income, when added to the value of any other funds applicable for the same purpose, is sufficient to discharge the entirety of the National Debt. Given the terms of the trust, the money is currently ‘locked’ in the fund.</p><p>The Attorney General’s Office is working with the Charity Commission and the Fund’s trustees to help resolve this legally complicated matter.</p><p> </p><p> </p>

In the Family Courts, proceedings for breach would be dealt with as a contempt of court matter and are not recorded separately.

Due to the popularity of the programme, up to 115 candidates will be recruited for the 2018 cohort. They are due to join the service in July 2018.”</ins></p><p><ins class="ministerial">Under the Prison Safety and Reform agenda, Governors have been given greater responsibility for workforce planning and determining their local organisational structure. This includes the number of officers they employ and Governors can implement changes to shift arrangements and resource deployment providing they remain within the agreed funding envelope.</ins></p><p><ins class="ministerial">This empowerment of the Governor’s position is intended to enable them to make best use of resources to support prison safety and develop strategies to reduce reoffending. HMPPS does not set workforce planning arrangements for Scotland and Northern Ireland, as this is a matter for devolved Governments.</ins></p><p><ins class="ministerial">The recruitment drive continues across the prison estate, with the same urgency that has secured this remarkable influx of new staff.</ins></p>
