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>

This Bill will contain a range of measures targeted at serious violent and sexual offenders, but will also contain proposals for community penalties that offer an appropriate level of punishment, while tackling the underlying drivers of re-offending. Before the Sentencing Bill is introduced the Government intends to publish a White Paper setting out proposals for reform.</p> more like this
