star this property answer text <p>Given the complex international nature of sovereign debt, we continue to believe that internationally-agreed approaches are the most effective way to improve sovereign debt transparency and sustainability. Sovereign governments are ultimately responsible for their own borrowing, and the UK supports the IMF and World Bank’s efforts to improve the capacity and capabilities of sovereign borrowers to fulfil this responsibility. The UK also recognizes that official and private creditors have an important role to play in securing debt transparency and sustainability. The G20 agreed Operational Guidelines for Sustainable Financing for official creditors in 2017. The UK is now working through the G20 to monitor an industry-led initiative by the Institute of International Finance (IIF) to improve the transparency of lending of private creditors.</p><p>UK-based lenders are also already subject to extensive prudential disclosure requirements under UK law. The Capital Requirements Regulation requires firms to disclose the geographic distribution of their credit exposures, including those to central banks and governments, if the loans are material.</p>

As set out in our Serious Violence Strategy, we are taking a multi-agency approach that brings together different sectors and stresses the importance of early intervention to tackle the root causes of violence.</p><p>To reinforce this approach, on 1 April, we launched a consultation on a new legal duty to underpin a public health approach to tackling serious violence. The consultation, which will close on 28 May can be found on the gov.uk website at: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/serious-violence-new-legal-duty-to-support-multi-agency-action]" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/serious-violence-new-legal-duty-to-support-multi-agency-action]</a>.</p><p>Between 1 and 4 April 2019, the Prime Minister hosted a Serious Youth Violence Summit at 10 Downing Street, with the support of the Home Secretary and other Secretaries of State to ensure a shared understanding and commitment to the multi-agency, public health approach to tackling knife crime and serious violence. A new Ministerial Taskforce, chaired by the Prime Minister, has been created to drive cross-government action. A report summarising the key discussion points can be found on the gov.uk website at: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/prime-ministers-summit-on-serious-youth-violence" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/prime-ministers-summit-on-serious-youth-violence</a>.</p><p>In addition, on 13 March the Chancellor of the Exchequer announced an additional £100 million funding for this year to tackle serious violence, which includes funding to support investment in Violence Reduction Units to support cross-sector work. The Violence Reduction Units will bring together a range of public agencies, such as the police, education, health partners, offender management, local authorities and others to tackle serious youth violence.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The private sector has an important role to play, and currently runs some high-performing prisons, as part of a safe, decent and secure prison estate.</p><p>Privately managed prison performance is closely monitored by robust contract management processes. Each privately managed prison has an on-site controller, employed by HM Prison and Probation Service (HMPPS). Controllers, together with regional contract managers review performance against performance indicators set out in the contract. Any improvement action identified may include a requirement for urgent improvement and/or financial deductions.</p><p>As well as contractual performance indicators, key statistics across public protection; safety and order; and offender reform are published annually for both the private and public estate.</p><p>Privately-managed prisons are subject to the same external inspection procedures as those in the public sector. Prisons are inspected at least once every five years by HM Inspectorate of Prisons, and face regular scrutiny by their local Independent Monitoring Board. Additionally, HMPPS internal audit and assurance scrutinises private prisons to ensure they are meeting their responsibilities.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Home Office issued guidance to employers on 28 January 2019 on how they can use the on-line digital service in complying with their responsibilities under the Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Act 2006 on the prevention of illegal working. The online service provides an alternative digital means for individuals to evidence their right to work if they hold a biometric residence permit or biometric residence card or status under the EU Settlement Scheme. The Home Office guidance clearly stipulates that employers should provide individuals with every opportunity to demonstrate their right to work. They should not discriminate on the basis of whether or not an individual is able or willing to demonstrate their right to work using the online checking service, as opposed to using physical documents specified in Home Office regulations which continue to be acceptable. The guidance makes clear that employers who do so risk breaching the Equality Act 2010. Where employees have an outstanding immigration application or appeal, the Home Office provides a separate employer checking service which provides emailed confirmation to the employer of the person’s continuing right to work in these circumstances. The Home Office has issued a statutory code of practice for employers on how to avoid unlawful discrimination whilst conducting right to work checks.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The number of female offenders sentenced to custody by court level and police force area, including the metropolitan police force area, in 2017, can be found in the Court outcomes by Police Force Area data tool, which can be found at the below link:</p><p> </p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/criminal-justice-system-statistics-quarterly-december-2017" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/criminal-justice-system-statistics-quarterly-december-2017</a></p><p> </p><p>Select the drop down boxes referring to custodial sentence length in order to establish sentence lengths. Select female from the sex drop box and, once having done this, young adults and adults to establish women. Offence classification can be found in both the Offence Type and Offence group boxes, depending on which categorisation is required here.</p><p> </p><p>Court proceedings data for 2018 are planned for publication on 16 May 2019, with data for 2019 planned for publication in May 2020.</p><p> </p><p>Our vision, as set out in our Female Offender Strategy, is to see fewer women coming into the criminal justice system and a greater proportion managed successfully in the community. To achieve this, we have invested £5m to support community provision for female offenders and women at risk of offending.</p><p> </p><p>There is persuasive evidence showing community sentences, in certain circumstances, are more effective than short custodial sentences in reducing reoffending. The MoJ study ‘The impact of short custodial sentences, community orders and suspended sentence orders on re-offending’ published in 2015 found that over a 1-year follow up period, a higher proportion of people re-offended having been sentenced to custody of under 12 months without supervision on release than other similar people given community orders.</p><p> </p><p>Unless we tackle the underlying causes of offending, we cannot protect the public from being victims of crime. Effective community orders can address offenders’ behaviour, answer their mental health and alcohol or drug misuse needs, and provide reparation for the benefit of the wider community.</p>
