unstar this property answer text <p>The information referred to in the Written Statement relates to the competition to operate the new prisons at Wellingborough and Glen Parva, Her Majesty’s Prison &amp; Probation Service has provided a ‘public sector benchmark’, against which potential operators’ bids will be rigorously assessed. For the Wellingborough competition, this work has already been undertaken and has informed the specification and affordability threshold for this competition. We are clear that where bids do not meet sufficient quality or value-for-money thresholds, the public sector will act as the provider.</p><p>The Government remains committed to a diverse market of prison operators and competition for custodial services remains an important way of achieving that and driving quality of operations and innovation across the system.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>The Answer of 19 March 2019 to Questions 230698-230707 and 231412-231416 was on the highest number of previous offences committed, for different offence items, before being given an immediate custodial sentence in each of the last three years. Pursuant to this, the answer regarding how many community orders each of those offenders had previously been given before being sent to prison can be found in the table attached. As benefit fraud offences are not prosecuted by the police, it is not possible to answer Question 230707.</p><p>Sentencing is a matter for our independent courts, who take into account all circumstances of the case, including any aggravating and mitigating factors. We are clear that sentencing must match the severity of a crime.</p><p>However, sentences should also rehabilitate. There is persuasive evidence showing community sentences, in certain circumstances, are more effective than short custodial sentences in reducing reoffending. The MoJ study ‘The impact of short custodial sentences, community orders and suspended sentence orders on re-offending’ published in 2015 involved around 350,000 sentencing occasions over 4 years and used 130 different variables to construct matched groups of offenders and examine the effect of short sentences relative to community sentences. This study found a reduction of around 3 percentage points in proven reoffences if offenders receiving sentences of less than 12 months were to get a community order instead. This is statistically significant and equates to around 30,000 proven reoffences in total over a one-year period. This means fewer victims of crime.</p><p>Unless we tackle the underlying causes of offending, we cannot protect the public from being victims of crime. Effective community orders can address offenders’ behaviour, answer their mental health and alcohol or drug misuse needs, and provide reparation for the benefit of the wider community.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>The sentencing framework already gives courts the flexibility to select community order requirements which are a robust alternative to custody, and are tailored to address the specific issues that contribute to reoffending. Community sentences, in certain circumstances, are more effective in reducing reoffending, and therefore keeping the public safe. We must ensure the public and judiciary have confidence in effective community orders, including those which address offenders’ behaviour, answer their mental health and substance misuse needs and provide reparation for the benefit of the wider community.</p><p> </p><p>We are rolling out GPS enabled location monitoring in addition to the existing curfew monitoring technology, which will provide the courts with an additional option when imposing community sentences.</p><p> </p><p>Some requirements aim to reduce reoffending by addressing the issues that contribute to the underlying causes of offending. We are working with the Department of Health and Social Care, NHS England and Public Health England, in addition to the relevant local authorities, on protocol to support the greater use of community sentences with treatment requirements in courts in five testbed sites across the UK. The Community Sentence Treatment Requirement protocol sets out what is expected from all relevant agencies to ensure improved access to treatment for offenders who need it</p><p> </p><p>We are taking action to improve probation delivery and enforcement of community requirements. We recently consulted on a range of reforms to probation and we will set out detailed plans shortly. As part of those reforms we want to make sure that judges and magistrates get the right information on what probation services are available locally.</p>

answer
unstar this property answer text <p>Serious violence devastates families and communities and we are taking action on a number of fronts to tackle it.</p><p> </p><p>With regard specifically to victims we are reviewing the Victims’ Code, including the enhanced entitlements in the Code for victims of the most serious violence and bereaved family members, and we will consult on the proposals shortly.</p><p> </p><p>However, we recognise more needs to be done. That’s why the Prime Minister hosted a Serious Youth Violence Summit last month. Following the Summit, the Justice Secretary announced:</p><ul><li>that the emotional, practical and specialist support of the Ministry of Justice funded national Homicide Service would be available to witnesses of murder and manslaughter in London from 4 April and be considered for wider roll out;</li><li>the review of the Victims’ Code will include making it clearer that those psychologically affected after witnessing acts of serious violence are entitled to support just as are physical victims; and</li><li>a pilot programme will introduce staff training and guidance in young offender institutions to help identify children in custody who may have been victims of crime and allow for referral to support in custody and the community to help them cope and recover.</li></ul>

answer
unstar this property answer text <p>In accordance with the Code of Practice for Victims of Crime (Victims’ Code), a person is entitled to support if they have suffered harm, including physical, mental or emotional harm or economic loss, which was directly caused by a criminal offence. They are entitled to access victim support services at any time, whether they have reported a crime or not.</p><p>This year, the Government allocated £24m over the next three years to specialist sexual violence and abuse support services across England and Wales to provide advice, support and counselling to victims of these appalling crimes to help them cope with and, as far as possible, recover from the effects of crime. Part of this funding will go towards Independent Sexual Violence Advisors to provide impartial advocacy for victims of sexual violence and abuse who have reported to the police or are considering reporting to the police.</p><p>In addition, in the cross-government Victims Strategy, which we published on 10 September 2018, we made a commitment to improve support for victims of crime, including by increasing the number of Registered Intermediaries, communication experts helping vulnerable victims and witnesses give their best evidence at police interview and at court.</p>
