star this property answer text <p>Sentencing decisions are for the independent judiciary following relevant sentencing guidelines produced by the Sentencing Council.</p><p>In line with the sentencing guideline on the Imposition of Community and Custodial Sentences, the courts may choose to suspend a custodial sentence where there is strong personal mitigation or where immediate custody would result in significant harmful impact upon others. The expanded explanations produced by the Sentencing Council, which came into force on 1 October, provide further guidance on mitigation where an offender is pregnant.</p><p>Emergency Admissions Boards can be held to expedite a woman’s placement on a mother and baby unit, and there are a range of circumstances when these can be appropriate. Pregnant women receiving custodial sentences are also provided access to a number of supportive provisions reflective of that which is available in the community, including: being provided with the local NHS Pregnancy free advice line number; fortnightly multi-disciplinary Maternity Boards for all pregnant women; local mid-midwifery services; and appropriate Social Services support, including for pregnant women who refuse to engage with ante-natal services.</p><p>In recent weeks, an additional safeguard of hourly welfare observations during the night has been put in place by the Director of the Women’s Estate, for women who are post 28 weeks pregnant.</p>

star this property answer text <p>There is no specific offence of voter ID fraud. Cases are usually prosecuted as offences involving fraud by false representation as well as offences involving impersonation.</p><p> </p><p>It is not possible to ascertain if an offender was convicted specifically for voter ID fraud as this information is not centrally held in the court proceedings database. As a result, identifying the number of offenders convicted for voter ID fraud from court data would require a manual search of court records, which would be of disproportionate cost.</p><p> </p><p>The Electoral Commission hold more detailed information which can be found at this link: <a href="https://www.electoralcommission.org.uk/who-we-are-and-what-we-do/our-views-and-research/our-research/electoral-fraud-data/2018-electoral-fraud-data" target="_blank">https://www.electoralcommission.org.uk/who-we-are-and-what-we-do/our-views-and-research/our-research/electoral-fraud-data/2018-electoral-fraud-data</a></p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Ministry of Justice expects appeal hearings to take place as quickly as possible and is carrying out a series of initiatives to increase capacity which will help reduce waiting times for appellants. For appellants in Wansbeck, whose closest tribunal venue is in Bedlington, if the venue receives a request for an urgent hearing, the appellant may be offered an alternative venue or a telephone hearing, where appropriate. Furthermore, triage sessions have been held on Saturdays at the Newcastle venue. This is where the tribunal panel looks at a series of cases to assess whether a decision can be made prior to the appellant’s oral hearing date or if further evidence is required before a decision can be made. This reduces the risk of a case having to be adjourned on the day of the oral hearing.</p><p> </p><p>Across the Social Security and Child Support (SSCS) jurisdiction more widely, the Department is currently in the process of recruiting more judicial office holders. In 2018, 232 medical members and 118 disability-qualified members were additionally appointed to the SSCS jurisdiction and an extra 129 fee-paid judges have recently been appointed. The SSCS jurisdiction will also benefit from 112 salaried judges and 170 fee-paid judges being recruited across tribunals more widely. In addition, HMCTS are also developing a new digital system with the view to enabling speedier processing of appeals and a better service for all parties to the proceedings.</p>
