unstar this property answer text <p>It is difficult to draw causality between the Licensing Act 2003 and changing behaviours. The Licensing Act 2003 came into force in November 2005. Data on offences which are ‘alcohol related’ are drawn from the Crime Survey of England and Wales, which asks victims of violent incidents whether they perceived the offender to be under the influence of alcohol at the time of the offence. By this measure, the number of violent incidents considered to be‘alcohol related’ has fallen from around 1.02 million incidents in 2005/06, to around 0.88 million incidents in 2012/13 (a fall of 14%). <br><br>The definition of binge drinking used by the NHS is drinking more than double the lower risk guidelines for alcohol in one session – more than 8 units for men and 6 units for women. The Opinions and Lifestyle survey, published by the Office of National Statistics provides our best measure for this. The data shows that in 2005, 23% of men and 15% of women drank over twice the lower risk guidelines on at least one day in the week before interview. This fell to 19 % of men and 11 % of women in 2012.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>

unstar this property answer text <p>The UK Government takes all forms of hate crime very seriously. We deplore all religious and racially-motivated attacks. <br><br>Between 2012-13 and 2013-14 recorded race hate crime increased by 4% (an increase of 1,595 offences), and religious hate crime by 45% (an increase of 700 offences). The increase in recorded hate crime shows that more victims are coming forward and that the police are improving the way they identify hate crimes, and we welcome this.<br><br>While religious hate crime data is not broken down by type, monthly police recorded crime data for racially or religiously aggravated offences show an increase following the murder of Lee Rigby in May 2013. <br><br>The Community Safety Trust monitors levels of antisemitism. Their most recent report, published at the end of July covering the period of January to June 2014, highlights that there has been a 36% increase in the number of antisemitic incidents recorded compared to the same period in 2013 (304 incidents in 2014, compared to 223 in 2013).<br><br>When these events occur it is vital that the police take action to engage effectively with communities. Police forces in England, Wales, and Northern Ireland have recently been issued with new guidance for dealing with hate crimes, which includes advice on dealing with incidents and how to monitor and deal with community tensions.<br><br>We have established working groups to tackle antisemitism and anti-Muslim hatred which bring together community representatives and experts from across government to help explore issues affecting these communities.<br><br>Our cross-government action plan brings together the work of a wide range of departments and agencies under three core principles: to prevent hate crimes happening in the first place; to increase reporting and victims’ access to support; and to improve the operational response to hate crimes.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>

unstar this property answer text <p>This Government remains absolutely committed to tackling child sexual abuse. We have been appalled by the recent terrible accounts of abuse in Rotherham and the failings that allowed it to continue for so long. In response, the Home Secretary is chairing a series of Secretaries of State meeting, which I also attend, to look at how we learn the lessons here, including how victims of currentand historical child sexual abuse are supported. <br><br>These meetings are building on the work of the Home Office-led National Group to tackle sexual violence against children and young people. This group, which I chair, has overseen the delivery of a range of improvements for victims of child sexual abuse. They include measures to improve the court process forvictims of sexual abuse and exploitation as well as publication of a newVictims’ Code setting out enhanced entitlements for victims of the most serious crimes, including sexual offences, and an enhanced role for agenciesin supporting victims through the criminal justice system. <br><br>This Government has ring-fenced nearly £40 million of funding up to 2015 for specialist local support services and national helplines for victims of sexual abuse and other forms of Violence against Women and Girls. We have committed funding of £1.72 million per year to part fund 87 Independent Sexual Violence Advisors posts which provide independent advocacy to victims of sexual violence, including, in some cases, children. Within this £40 million, Ministry of Justice is providing £4.4million per year until March 2016 to fund 86 rape support centres across England and Wales.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>

From the 1 April 2014 these offences have been supplied to the Home Office as a separate classification of stalking.
