star this property answer text <p>There are more women in Parliament than ever before – 208-won seats in the 2017 election. Women now make up 32% of all MPs - up from 22% in 2010. While we cannot be complacent, the percentage of women MPs elected has increased at every general election since 2001, so the direction is positive.</p><p>The Government Equalities Office (GEO) has commissioned qualitative research with women and men in Parliament, to demonstrate the range of experiences, career paths and skills that Members bring to their role, and to understand the information and opportunities that enabled MPs to stand as Parliamentary candidates so that we can identify the factors involved in their success. We will publish this work in 2018.</p><p>The GEO supports a range of projects through the £5m suffrage centenary fund, which encourage more women to participate in politics so that they have an equal voice in democracy. The fund will help build a legacy for the future while also celebrating the many inspiring people who campaigned for women’s suffrage.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Further to my previous answer on 2 July 2018, I can confirm that this year the Government Equalities Office has been funding several projects, through the Government’s £5m Suffrage Centenary Fund, that help deliver our aim to increase women’s participation in politics across the country. Some of these projects are providing practical training to women who want an active role in politics. For example, we are supporting a political leadership programme for women in Bradford and Birmingham, and a project training women in the East Midlands, West Midlands and London in public speaking and media relations. <strong><em> </em></strong></p><p>Also, in July this year the Centenary Fund supported an Ask Her to Stand event in London where 350 women interested in elected office heard from women politicians across the political spectrum encouraging them to stand, engaged with women’s political organisations and took part in workshops providing practical advice on getting into politics and public life.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Home Office has no plans to give powers of arrest to police community support officers (PCSOs); we have therefore made no assessment of the consequences of making such a change.</p><p>On Wednesday 9 Septemer 2015, my Right Honourable friend the Home Secretary launched a consultation on reforming the powers of police staff and volunteers. The proposals set out in the consultation document seek to make police staff and volunteers more flexible in their roles by enabling Chief Constables to designate them with a wider range of powers, ensuring that they have the police powers necessary to do their job. The consultation also proposes a list of core powers that will be exclusively available to Constables, including Special Constables, and this list includes the power of arrest.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>No assessment has been made of the effect on knife crime or other offences of the amendment to the Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984 Code of Practice A which makes clear what ‘reasonable grounds for suspicion’ are and that officers would be subject to conduct or performance procedures as a result of misusing the power. The changes came into force on 19 March 2015. More generally, statistical evidence does not suggest a clear relationship between changes in the use of stop and search and knife crime. The Home Office continues to monitor levels of knife crime but the latest figures show that nationally it is 17% lower than in June 2010, and although it has seen a slight rise of 4% in the last year (to June 2015) it remains close to its lowest level since data was first collected.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Cyber Security, including combating cyber crime, is a top priority threat to national security. That is why, through the National Cyber Security Programme, we have invested over £90 million under the last Parliament to bolster the law enforcement response, and we will continue to invest. As the Chancellor announced this week, this Government has committed to spending £1.9 billion on cyber security over the next five years, including for cyber crime.</p><p>To date, we have funded the development of National Crime Agency’s National Cyber Crime Unit (NCCU) and of cyber teams within the Regional Organised Crime Unit network; and invested in Action Fraud and the National Fraud Intelligence Bureau. We are clear that front line policing also needs to adapt with the changing nature of the threat. In partnership with the College of Policing, we have rolled out cyber crime training so that it is available to all police officers and staff, with over 150,000 modules completed so far. We recognise that local policing capabilities in respect of the investigation of digital crime are a particular concern – that is why we are working with the National Policing Lead for Digital Investigations to define the capabilities required to conduct effective digital investigations. This Government has also made a commitment to expand the number of volunteer ‘Cyber Specials’ across policing. This will harness expertise from other sectors to further increase police capability at all levels, including within local forces.</p><p>This Government will continue investing at the national, regional and local levels to ensure we have the capacity to deal with the volume and sophistication of online crime. We will continue to boost the capabilities of the NCCU by increasing their ability to investigate the most serious cyber crime, both domestically and internationally. We will increase work with industry to stop cyber attacks reaching the UK, and we will work with industry and the public to help them better protect themselves.</p>
