star this property answer text <p>The gender pay gap in the UK is at an historic low. In the financial &amp; insurance activities sector, the overall gender pay gap is (including both part time and full time workers) down from 44.3% in 2011 to 40.2% in 2014. However, the sector still has a completely unacceptable pay gap of around twice the national average, so more needs to be done. We are strongly encouraging more girls to consider maths and science-related careers through the “Your Life” initiative. Women in the sector will also benefit from the many other measures we are taking to drive the pay gap down further, including extending flexible working to all employees; introducing Shared Parental Leave; and bringing in new childcare tax provisions. We are also providing free software to companies for them to calculate any pay gaps and to analyse the causes of them.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The UK takes a voluntary approach increasing the numbers of women on boards. We are making progress with the Lord Davies business-led initiative to achieve 25% women on boards by 2015 and have moved from 12.5% to nearly 23% of women on the boards of the top 100 companies since 2011. For the first time, every board of Britain’s top 100 companies has at least one woman. Government will continue to work closely with investors, regulators, head hunters and businesses to implement his recommendation of 25% women on boards by 2015.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p /> <p>The Government does not tolerate sexual exploitation of any kind in adult prisons or young offender institutions. Sexual assaults are treated seriously and referred to the police for investigation. Where there is insufficient evidence for a criminal prosecution, the National Offender Management Service (NOMS) uses internal disciplinary processes to deal robustly with perpetrators.</p><p> </p><p>NOMS has recently undertaken analysis on the safeguards that are in place to prevent sexual violence in prisons and young offender institutions. The analysis did not identify any significant gaps but made some recommendations to further improve practice. NOMS is comprehensively reviewing how it manages all forms of violence, including sexual violence, and will issue revised guidance on this, as well as a new policy on adult safeguarding, in early 2015. Work is also being taken forward with the police and Crown Prosecution Service to improve the investigation and prosecution of crime in prisons and young offender institutions.</p><p> </p><p>Data on assaults, including sexual assaults, in prisons and young offender institutions is included in the Safety in Custody Statistics Bulletin, available at <a href="http://www.gov.uk/government/publications/safety-in-custody-statistics" target="_blank">www.gov.uk/government/publications/safety-in-custody-statistics</a>.</p>
