answer text <p>The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) does not maintain a central record of the number of cases in which a defendant has been charged with, or prosecuted for a criminal offence where it subsequently becomes known that their actions were the result of their being a victim of modern slavery</p><p> </p><p>The CPS has published clear legal guidance which recognises the principle of non-prosecution of victims of trafficking or slavery. It has delivered training on the steps to be taken, where there is a reason to believe that a suspect or defendant in a criminal case might be a victim. In those circumstances, the prosecutor will consider what further evidence or information might be required and will review whether the prosecution should proceed or not. The guidance sets out that where there is sufficient evidence that the accused is a victim and the conditions provided for in section 45 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 are met, the case should not be charged or proceeded with.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The recording of ethnicity is the responsibility of the individual to input via employee self-service. Due to small numbers of staff at each of the requested grades, we have grouped these together in our response below.</p><p> </p><p>Including those on temporary promotion at the grades requested, there are 16 members of staff in scope. Of these, only five have input their ethnicity details onto the HR system. Of these, none have self-identified as being from an ethnic minority background.</p><p> </p><p>AGO supports the Civil Service vision of being recognised as the UK’s most inclusive employer. AGO has two diversity champions and a Diversity &amp; Inclusion Strategy in place that is reviewed by the Executive Board every six months.</p><p> </p><p>AGO is an employer which promotes equality and aims to reflect the diversity of the society in which we live. It is committed to maximising the skills and potential of all its staff. It welcomes applications from all suitably qualified persons irrespective of disability, ethnic origin, gender, age, sexual orientation, marital status or religion/belief.

answer text <p>The Attorney General’s Office offers a flexi time policy to support time off in lieu on an individual basis. Flexi time is individually agreed with line managers to maintain working hours in line with the Working Time Regulations 1998. As there is no central record of working hours, the Attorney General’s Office has no accurate way to estimate the amount of time off in lieu taken by staff in each of the last five years without disproportionate cost.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The UK and EU agree that we need a comprehensive future security partnership that covers key areas of internal security cooperation. We have agreed the outline terms of a comprehensive future security relationship including law enforcement, criminal justice, and judicial cooperation.</p><p>In a no deal scenario, we would move co-operation to alternative, non-EU mechanisms. Broadly speaking, this would mean making more use of Interpol, Council of Europe Conventions, and other forms of co-operation with European partners, such as bilateral channels. Together the Attorney General’s Office, Crown Prosecution Service and Serious Fraud Office are working closely with the Home Office, Ministry of Justice, Police, HM Courts and Tribunals Service and Judiciary to ensure that we have plans in place in event of a ‘no deal’.</p> more like this
