star this property answer text <p /> <p /> <p>Capita TI only gets paid for completed bookings, so if it cannot supply an interpreter, it does not get paid. The Ministry of Justice manages service delivery and performance through a number of methods and remedies open to it under the contract. The Ministry is continually working with the supplier to improve performance delivery standards.</p><p>Service credits can be imposed on Capita in line with the terms of the contract when performance falls below the contractual level of 98% success rate. This level was set to drive very high levels of performance.</p><p>The service credit amounts for Jan 2012 – March 2014 is:</p><p> </p><p>£53,777.00</p><p> </p><p>The new interpreting contract was introduced to tackle the inefficiencies and inconsistencies in the previous system — and it has already saved taxpayers £15m in its first year. We have seen dramatic improvements over the life of the contract so far, with performance currently at 94% success rate, record numbers of bookings are now being made and fulfilled, and we continue to drive further improvement in performance.</p>

This question could, therefore, only be answered by manually checking every court file log at disproportionate cost.</p> more like this

Confiscation orders provide a key addition to punishment, and are one of the key mechanisms available to Government to ensure that criminals are deprived of the proceeds of their crimes. Confiscation orders help to disrupt and deter criminality, and reassure the public that crime does not pay.</p><p> </p><p>All debts owed through confiscation orders are rigorously pursued by HM Courts and Tribunals Service (HMCTS) and other enforcement agencies. This has led to the amount defendants repaid from their criminal activity reaching an all time high of £137.2 million in 2013/14, an increase of 39% since 2008/9.</p><p> </p><p>Orders can be reduced or written off in certain limited circumstances – for example when in individual circumstances the remaining debt is so small it is not cost effective to collect it or when it is proven that the offender does not have the assets amounting to the order value, we are required to do so by law or, if the Order was made under the Drug Trafficking Act 1994, when the offender has served their full default sentence.</p><p> </p><p>HMCTS is seeking a commercial partner to help increase collections, reduce enforcement costs and, and crucially, ensure more criminals pay.</p><p> </p><p>The Serious Crime Bill, currently being debated in Parliament, includes provisions to further improve the current confiscation system including the enforcement of confiscation orders.</p><p>The continuing improvement the Agencies are making combined with our future plans will make sure that more criminals pay, further disrupt criminality, reassure the public that crime does not pay, and help ensure that taxpayers get better value for money,</p><p> </p><p> </p>
