star this property answer text <p>The Ministry of Justice expects appeal hearings to take place as quickly as possible and is carrying out a series of initiatives to increase capacity which will help reduce waiting times for appellants in Garston and Halewood, whose closest tribunal venue is in Liverpool. Since January 2018, additional panel members have been recruited to hear cases at the Liverpool venue. Four judges, seven medical members and one specialist member have been allocated to Liverpool as their primary venue and a further 13 judges, seven medical members and 4 specialist members have been allocated to Liverpool as their secondary venue. In addition to this, the capacity at the Liverpool venue has recently increased and it is now using five to six hearing rooms on a daily basis.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>In August the Prime Minister announced an urgent review of sentencing. This has been an internal review which has focused on the sentencing for the most serious violent and sexual offenders and the rules governing when and how those offenders are released. We have also, as part of this review, looked at changes to sentencing for the most prolific offenders which could help break the cycle of reoffending. Based on the findings of the review, we will be bringing forward proposals shortly for a comprehensive package of legislative reform. This will include amending the automatic release point for the most serious sexual and violent offenders.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The department is mandated to use the Crown Commercial Services (CCS) Energy frameworks for the supply of gas, electricity and liquid fuels. The CCS competes the frameworks on the open market and selects the energy providers according to a set of award criteria, normally based on price and quality. The current suppliers of each of these services are as follow:</p><ul><li>EDF (Half-Hourly electricity);</li><li>British Gas (Non Half-Hourly electricity);</li><li>Corona (gas); and</li><li>various suppliers (liquid fuels).</li></ul><p>In 2018/19, the department emitted 313,464 t/CO2e through its energy use which represents a 40 % reduction compared to 2009/10. This has been achieved through smarter working, estate rationalisation, and investment in energy and carbon reduction projects such as LED lighting, boiler optimisation controls and renewable or low carbon technologies.</p> more like this
