star this property answer text <p>Baroness Vere of Norbiton wrote to the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) on 13 December 2017. The DPP provided her response on 9 January 2018.</p><p> </p><p>In her response, the then DPP confirmed that the flagging definition for hate crime was agreed between the CPS and the NPCC (ACPO as it was then) in 2007 and that it is wider than the definition set out in legislation to ensure all relevant cases are captured.</p><p> </p><p>The CPS adopted the recommended definition in the Macpherson report published in 1999 as a result of the inquiry into the murder of Stephen Lawrence. The Macpherson report also recommended that ‘this definition should be universally adopted by the Police, local Government and other relevant agencies’.</p><p> </p><p>The recommendations of the Macpherson report were welcomed by the Government at the time and the current Government remains in support of this position. The CPS has worked with police to implement the recommended definition across all strands of hate crime. The CPS takes tackling hate crime seriously and recognises the need to increase public confidence to report. The flagging definition is important in achieving this aim.</p><p> </p><p>In order for a crime to be charged and prosecuted as a hate crime, the CPS uses the legal definitions contained in the Crime and Disorder Act 1998 (CDA 1998) and the Criminal Justice Act 2003 (CJA 2003). This means that not every incident that the victim or another person has perceived to be a hate crime will actually be a hate crime in law.</p><p> </p><p>In her letter, the then DPP also confirmed that the CPS legal guidance recognises the potential impact of prosecutions on Article 10 of the European Convention on Human Rights (the right to freedom of expression). The CPS must balance the rights of an individual to freedom of speech against the duty of the state to act proportionately and to protect the rights of others.</p>

star this property answer text <p>No Scottish Limited Partnerships (SLPs) have been fined since the People with Significant Control register came into force.</p><p> </p><p>I refer the hon. Member to the answer given to her on 2nd July 2018 to Question 157783. Compliance is Companies House’s primary aim, rather than prosecution. It is taking action to ensure that all SLPs report their PSC information. Companies House is actively engaged with SLPs and their representatives to make them aware of their responsibilities, and in addition, it has issued reminder letters to all SLPs who have failed to file PSC information. Failure to comply with the requirement to report PSC information does not incur a civil penalty but it is an offence and may lead to a fine or imprisonment upon prosecution. Companies House is not a prosecuting body and will refer cases to a relevant prosecutor when all other avenues have been exhausted and an SLP has not complied with their obligations.</p><p>In April the Government consulted on a package of reforms which would limit the misuse of limited partnerships, including in their Scottish form. I anticipate that the Government’s response will be published in due course.</p>

star this property answer text <p>We have repeatedly stated our commitment to a far-reaching relationship with the EU on science and innovation. We have taken crucial first steps towards achieving this relationship by agreeing in principle the Withdrawal Agreement and Political Declaration. Once ratified, provisions in the Withdrawal Agreement will ensure continued UK participation in existing EU Programmes for their duration. Horizon 2020 is a current EU Programme.</p><p> </p><p>We have also been clear that we would like the option to associate to the next EU Research and Innovation Framework Programme, Horizon Europe. The Political Declaration represents an important milestone by explicitly providing for the inclusion of terms for UK participation in Union programmes, such as science and innovation as part of a future UK-EU agreement.</p><p> </p><p>In the unlikely event of no deal, the underwrite guarantee and extension would ensure continued UK participation in Horizon 2020 post-EU Exit. In this scenario, UK entities would be eligible to participate in and lead consortia in a wide range of collaborative programmes. We are seeking to discuss the details of our continued participation as a Third Country with the European Commission.</p><p> </p><p>Whilst the UK remains a Member State, we continue to play an active role in the development of EU programmes, engaging with our counterparts in the European, Commission, Council and Parliament to ensure these remain attractive to international partners.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>In order to improve the customer experience, the Post Office provides branch services in a number of different ways, including over the counter, through ATMs, lottery and bill payment terminals, Self Service Kiosks, mail acceptance points, customer referrals and many more. It would therefore be impossible to capture all transactions.</p><p> </p><p>However, the Post Office gathers information through a regular independent monitoring process which shows that weekly customer visits across the Post Office network are around 16 million a week. Five years ago, the Post Office estimated that the weekly visits were around 17 million. The small decline is in line with general shopping patterns with more business being conducted on-line and via other channels.</p><p> </p> more like this
