The evidence confirmed the inquest process should remain about fact finding and establishing the truth rather than apportioning blame.</p><p> </p><p>We are working on raising the awareness of legal aid for representation at inquests by publishing new guidance for bereaved people. Legal aid for inquests is available through the Exceptional Case Funding scheme, and we are working to simplify the application process for this.</p><p> </p><p>We are committed to ensuring bereaved families are properly supported and able to participate in the inquest process.

star this property answer text <p>We launched the Outsourcing Playbook in February 2019 and introduced a package of<br>reforms to our approach to outsourcing designed to improve public service outcomes, value<br>for money and how we work in partnership with our suppliers</p><p>Measures include:<br>Guidance for departments to help assess whether services should be delivered, in-house by<br>the public sector or outsourced. This should support more informed decisions on when it is<br>best to deliver public services ourselves and when there is benefit to drawing on the capacity<br>and expertise of the private sector;<br>Introduction of a new presumption in favour of running a pilot where government is<br>outsourcing a service so we learn lessons before contracting for the long term; and<br>A new requirement for government to produce an assessment of how much a service<br>‘should cost’ to deliver when deciding whether to utilise the private sector. This helps to<br>provide a better understanding of the costs associated with the different service delivery<br>models so that we are in a better position to challenge unsustainable bids</p><p>We have put in place an implementation programme to ensure that our departments are<br>aware of these new requirements. Compliance with these reforms will be ensured through<br>the usual Cabinet Office controls process.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Our strategy to tackling the security threat posed by mobile phones is threefold:</p><ul><li>we must prevent them from getting into our prisons in the first place by expanding airport-style security, including metal detectors and X-ray scanners;</li><li>we must find and stop those phones from working through using portable detection poles and the latest detection and signal-blocking technologies;</li><li>we must also exploit the data held on those phones. We have delivered new kits at 30 prisons to allow staff to download data from illicit phones quickly.</li></ul> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Reoffending is costing society approximately £15bn per year. It is only through a concerted effort across Government that we will be able to reduce reoffending.</p><p> </p><p>That is why we set up the Reducing Reoffending Board to identify how the Government can work more collaboratively in addressing the drivers of reoffending, and to consider innovative ways of addressing these drivers.</p><p> </p><p>We are looking particularly closely at what we can do to strengthen probation, which is responsible for managing and supporting offenders in the community to turn away from crime. I want to see a wider range of rehabilitative programmes on offer, so that offenders can be directed towards programmes that are targeted to their behaviour.</p><p> </p><p>For instance, we have found that our general offending behaviour programme can reduce violent reoffending by 17 percentage points.</p> more like this
