answer text <p>The Government does not keep disaggregated records of funding specifically dedicated to tackling knife crime and it is not possible to differentiate out funding on knife crime from funding allocated to police forces.</p><p>The Government’s Serious Violence Strategy, published in April 2018, set out a very significant programme of work with an ambitious programme including the following:</p><p>• An Early Intervention Youth Fund of £22 million<br>• £1.5 million for the anti-knife crime Community Fund<br>• £3.6 million we have provided for the establishment of the new <br> National County Lines Coordination Centre<br>• £1.4 million to support a new national police capability to tackle gang <br> related activity on social media <br>• Support to the #knifefree national knife crime media campaign<br>• The Offensive Weapons Bill currently passing through Parliament</p><p>In addition, we are allocating £200 million to a Youth Endowment Fund over the next 10 years, supporting police forces to tackle knife crime under Operation Sceptre, are soon to launch a consultation on anew legal duty to underpin a ‘public health’ approach to tackling serious violence, and have announced an Independent Review of Drug Misuse, to be conducted by Dame Carol Black.</p><p>On 13 March, the Chancellor of the Exchequer announced in the Spring Statement that there will be £100 million additional funding in 2019/20 to tackle serious violence, including £80m of new funding from the Treasury. The majority of the investment will largely go towards supporting police forces, especially where violent crime is impacting the most. The funding will also support multi-agency Violence Reduction Units in violent crime hotspot areas, and elsewhere. We will prioritise investment in targeted police capacity to tackle serious violence and support for Violence Reduction Units in our Spending Review discussions.</p>

answer text <p>Hate crime of any kind is completely unacceptable. In October 2018 the Government refreshed the Action Against Hate to ensure that it is still fit for purpose to tackle hate crime including homophobic, biphobic and transphobic abuse.</p><p>The Action Plan includes a number of commitments that are addressing all forms of hate crime, including a review of hate crime legislation by the Law Commission which commenced earlier this year, a public awareness campaign which has run twice, and the Online Harms White Paper consultation.</p><p>There are also a number of specific commitments addressing homophobic, biphobic and transphobic hate crime, which have been informed by the Government’s 2018 LGBT Action Plan. These include: the Crown Prosecution Service working with partners to improve the recording and monitoring of equalities data for LGBT victims of hate crime and reviewing and refreshing its LGBT Hate Crime Schools Pack; further Government Equalities Office funding for anti-bullying interventions in schools from March 2019 to March 2020; support from the Home Office to the police to improve training in responding to victims; multiple Home Office funded projects aimed at tackling homophobic, biphobic and transphobic hate crime; and continued engagement with LBGT stakeholders.</p>

answer text <p>Protecting children and the vulnerable from being harmed or exploited by gambling is a core objective of the regulation of gambling in Great Britain, and a priority for the government.</p><p>The statutory regulator, the Gambling Commission, monitors the participation of children in gambling through a range of data sources including complaints, academic research, and the annual Young People and Gambling Survey, which in 2017 included specific questions in relation to video gaming. The results of the survey are due to be published soon. The Gambling Commission has also asked its expert advisors, the Responsible Gambling Strategy Board, to examine the wider relationship between children and gambling.</p><p>The Gambling Commission is engaging with the video games industry and with a wide variety of stakeholders, including child protection groups, to highlight the risks of gambling linked to video games to parents, consumers and the wider public. The government’s Internet Safety Strategy published on 11 October considers options for working with the online video games industry to improve video gaming safety</p><p>The government recognises the risks that come from increasing convergence between gambling and video games. The Gambling Commission is keeping this matter under review and will continue to monitor developments in the market.</p><p> </p>

answer text <p>The Department currently has no plans to change the list of medical conditions which provide for exemption from prescription charges because arrangements exist to ensure that prescriptions are affordable for everyone. A broad range of prescription charge exemptions are in place, for which someone with a long-term condition may qualify. To support those with greatest need who do not qualify for an exemption, prescription prepayment certificates are available. A holder of a 12 month certificate can get all the prescriptions they need for just £2 per week.</p> more like this
