star this property answer text <p>Any sexual activity with a child under 16 is a criminal offence, regardless of whether consent is given. Any non-consensual sexual activity is also a crime, whatever the age of the victim and whatever the relationship between the victim and perpetrator.</p><p> </p><p>I recognise that there are concerns about those who might abuse their position of power over a 16 or 17-year-old to pressure them into engaging in a sexual relationship. Such behaviour is very likely to be caught by the robust laws we already have in place,</p><p> </p><p>However, we remain absolutely committed to protecting children and young people from sexual abuse and we want to ensure that existing offences are being used effectively to tackle this behaviour, and that those working with young people understand their responsibilities and act appropriately.</p><p> </p><p>My department, working closely with colleagues across government, is taking forward a review of the existing law, to check that that it is working effectively and ensuring young people are protected.</p>

star this property answer text <p>As part of plans for the future of probation announced on 16 May 2019, the National Probation Service (NPS) will assume responsibility for managing all offenders in England and Wales. The NPS is performing well in managing higher risk offenders and is best placed to achieve the benefits of unifying offender management within a single organisation. There are no plans to change the status of the NPS as a public body.</p><p> </p><p>The aim of these changes is to help deliver a stronger, more stable probation system that better plays to the respective strengths of the public, private and voluntary sectors, that will reduce reoffending, support victims of crime and keep the public safe – and merit the confidence of the courts and the public.</p> more like this
