The Government committed to putting in place a mechanism, an additional layer of scrutiny, for proposals to create new offences. This is the first time a Government has done so and committed to doing so publicly. The Government has repealed 140 offences in the 12 months ending May 2013.</p><p> </p><p>The information on the predicted effect on the number of prisoners for each relevant offence is not available and could only be obtained at disproportionate cost.</p>

star this property answer text <p> </p><p> </p><p>I have been asked to reply. Section 11 of the Children and Families Act 2014 requires courts to presume that a child benefits from the involvement of each parent who can be involved in a way which does not put the child at risk of harm. This is subject to the principle that the welfare of the child must be the courts' paramount consideration. ‘Involvement' may be direct or indirect and it is for courts to determine the most appropriate way for a parent to be involved in the light of the individual circumstances.</p><p> </p><p>Section 11 of the Act will be commenced in the autumn. One of the aims of the policy is to encourage parents to resolve disputes without the need for court intervention. The Government therefore intends to consider the impact of the policy as part of wider work to assess the impact of the family justice provisions in the Act.</p><p> </p> more like this
