answer text <p>Last year’s Government consultation on powers for dealing with unauthorised development and encampments received responses from a wide range of stakeholders, including police forces, offices of police and crime commissioners, law enforcement representative bodies, local authorities, private sector bodies, representative groups of the Gypsy and Traveller community and members of the public. The result of this consultation was clear - people want to see greater protection for local communities. <br> <br>Acting on the findings of the consultation, where the majority of respondents believed that the Government should consider criminalising unauthorised encampments, the Home Office launched a review into whether this could be achieved</p><p><br>Responses to the consultation were received from six police forces and two police representative bodies. A summary of responses to the consultation can be found at https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/powers-for-dealing-with-unauthorised-development-and-encampments</p>

answer text <p>The Government published ‘EU Exit: Assessment of the Security Partnership’ (https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/759760/28_November_EU_Exit_-_Assessment_of_the_security_partnership__2_.pdf) on 28 November 2018.</p><p><br>This assessed the potential impacts of the UK leaving the EU, comparing the Future UK-EU Security Partnership (as set out in the Political Declara-tion) against a no deal scenario. <br>In a deal scenario, the agreement reached with the EU would provide for an implementation period during which we’d continue to use all the EU security tools we use now. For the future relationship, the Future Security Partnership would enable strong operational capabilities to tackle serious crime and terrorism: swift and effective data exchange; fast-track surrender arrangements; and continued close cooperation with Europol and Eurojust.</p><p>In a no deal scenario, the UK would no longer be able to cooperate with the EU using EU law enforcement and criminal justice mechanisms. The Home Office has therefore coordinated the preparation of robust contingency plans, to ensure that we can transition our cooperation with European partners and continue to work together through alternative channels, should that be required. Broadly speaking, this would mean making more use of Interpol, Council of Europe Conventions and bilateral channels. Whilst these alternatives are not like-for-like replacements, they are largely tried and tested mechanisms which the UK already uses to cooperate with many non-EU countries. Our overriding objective, however, remains to secure a deal that is in the interests of both the UK and the EU.</p><p>Much of our national security cooperation with our European partners takes place outside EU structures and so is not dependent on our membership of the EU.</p>
