answer text <p>The information requested is provided in the attached table. As per the answer to PQ 184996, please note that offenders may appear both within the caseload figures of court orders (including community orders and suspended sentence orders), and post-release supervision.</p><p> </p><p>The National Probation Service and Community Rehabilitation Companies work closely with other agencies to support offenders in the community. When an offender being supervised by Probation dies, the Probation provider must examine the circumstances of the death and identify areas to improve practice. While we work extremely closely with each offender before and after release to help them find the support they need, we do not have sole responsibility for caring for these offenders. We are clear, however, that they should receive the same level of care as other members of the public.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The information requested could only be obtained at disproportionate cost. <br> <br> Through the Public Contract Regulations 2015, all public-sector buyers must include 30-day payment terms in new public-sector contracts; and require that this payment term be passed down the supply chain. Public sector buyers must also publish annually on their payment performance.</p><p>The MoJ strongly encourages businesses to report poor payment practice and instances of late payment, including late payment through the supply chain, in public sector contracts to the Government Mystery Shopper service. Mystery Shopper will then investigate.</p><p>Since January 2011, details of central government contracts above the value of £10,000 are published on Contracts Finder. Contracts published prior to 26 February 2015 can be viewed at: https://data.gov.uk/data/contracts-finder-archive Those published after 26 February 2015 can be viewed at: https://www.contractsfinder.service.gov.uk/Search.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The UK Living Wage (sometimes referred to as the ‘Real Living Wage’) and the London Living Wage, are both voluntary rates set by the Living Wage Foundation. These are not statutory figures which relate to the government policy in this area, and so are not legally binding on employers. The statutory minimum rates are the National Living Wage and the National Minimum Wage. For comparison, the National Living Wage is currently £7.83 per hour, and increased by 4.4% in April 2018. The increases in the National Living Wage and the National Minimum Wage have produced increases for over 2 million workers this year, across the economy, and increased pay by £2,000 for those on the minimum rate, since these statutory arrangements were introduced. All MoJ employees are paid at least the National Minimum Wage and the National Living Wage.</p><p> </p><p>1643 staff employed by the Ministry of Justice (MoJ HQ, HMCTS, LAA, OPG and CICA) and 561 by HMPPS who work outside Greater London are paid at a rate below the Real National Living Wage of £9 per hour.</p><p> </p><p>517 staff employed by the Ministry of Justice (MoJ HQ, HMCTS, LAA, OPG and CICA) and 27 by HMPPS who work inside Greater London are paid a rate below the London Living wage of £10.55 per hour.</p>
