answer text <p>In the Female Offender Strategy, we set out our vision to see fewer women in custody, particularly on short custodial sentences and to see more women supported in the community. The strategy launched an ambitious programme of work which will take several years to deliver. So far, we have published a new Women’s Policy Framework, Lord Farmer’s Review for Women and invested £5m to support community provision for female offenders and women at risk of offending</p><p>We are committed to monitoring progress over time and taking action to deliver the outcomes we set out to achieve. The latest published statistics show that the total female prison population increased slightly (by 1%) between March 2018 and 2019, but that female first receptions have decreased by 10% over the past year, (from 2,036 between October and December 2017 to 1,840 over the same period in 2018).</p><p>The published data setting out the current and previous female prison population can be accessed here: <a href="https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/796904/population-31-march-2019.ods" target="_blank">https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/796904/population-31-march-2019.ods</a></p>

answer text <p>The Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme 2012 (the Scheme), which was approved by Parliament, sets out the time limits in which applications must be received by the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA). The CICA publishes data about the number of claims rejected for being out with the time limit in its annual reports and accounts at: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/search/transparency-and-freedom-of-information-releases?organisations%5B%5D=criminal-injuries-compensation-authority&amp;parent=criminal-injuries-compensation-authority" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/search/transparency-and-freedom-of-information-releases?organisations%5B%5D=criminal-injuries-compensation-authority&amp;parent=criminal-injuries-compensation-authority</a></p><p> </p><p>In the 2017-18 annual report and accounts, this data was presented as a proportion of all refusal reasons used. The number of cases refused for being submitted out with the time limit was 1252.</p><p> </p><p>The figures published in the annual reports and accounts show the number of times each rejection reason was used. For some applications there will have been more than one reason for rejection. This means that the total number of reasons for rejection is higher than the actual number of claims refused.</p>

answer text <p>The information requested is not collected centrally and could only be provided at disproportionate cost.</p><p> </p><p>We know female prisoners are more likely than male prisoners to be a primary carer and imprisoned mothers are more likely to be living with their children prior to custody: around 60% of women in prison compared with about 45% of men. However, currently the Ministry of Justice does not routinely capture data about what happens to children when their parents are held in custody.</p><p> </p><p>Lord Farmer’s Review “The Importance of Strengthening Female Offenders' Family and other</p><p>Relationships to Prevent Reoffending and Reduce Intergenerational Crime” was published on 18 June<em>. </em>We welcome Lord Farmer’s report and are committed to moving forward with reforms on this important subject. We will look closely at the report’s findings and recommendations to see how we can best give effect to them. This includes recommendation 5 on improving data collected on the dependants of female offenders.</p>

answer text <p>The criteria used by the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority in determining whether an applicant cannot afford the cost of obtaining medical evidence is outlined in its internal guidance. This states:</p><p> </p><p><em>If the applicant tells us they cannot afford to obtain medical evidence we may meet the cost of doing so and deduct it from any award we make, up to a maximum of £50. However, before we do so you should ask the applicant for evidence of their inability to meet the cost. You should consider all the relevant circumstances in deciding whether you accept the applicant cannot afford to pay for the medical evidence. Some factors you should consider include: </em></p><p> </p><p><em>• whether they are relying solely on any of the benefits listed </em>[as Jobseeker’s Allowance or low-income benefits on gov.uk]<em>; </em></p><p> </p><p><em>• whether they have a low income and are in receipt of any of the tax credits as listed </em>[on gov.uk]</p><p> </p><p><em>• whether they earn less than the minimum amount needed to qualify for Statutory Sick Pay as evidenced by a pay statement or letter from their employer or, if self-employed, copies of their most recent tax returns; or </em></p><p> </p><p><em>• whether they are struggling to manage significant debts, bankruptcy or insolvency.</em></p><p> </p>
