answer text <p>The UK has a proud history of providing protection to those who need it and this Government is committed to delivering a fair and humane asylum system.</p><p>Our current policy is consistent with EU law and permits asylum seekers to work, in jobs on the Shortage Occupation List, if they have been waiting for a decision on their claim for 12 months or more and the delay is through no fault of their own. We are tackling delays in decision-making and have plans in place to improve the speed at which outstanding claims are decided.</p><p>The Government is considering recent calls to change the current policy. However, the current approach aims to protect the resident labour market so that any employment meets our needs for skilled labour and to maintain the distinction between those who need protection and those who want to work in the UK, who can apply for a work visa under the Immigration Rules. We need to avoid creating further incentives for migrants to come here illegally, risking their lives in the process, instead of claiming asylum in the first safe country they reach.</p><p>It is also important to focus on providing support for those who are recognised as refugees, to help them to integrate and find employment, so that they can rebuild their lives here.</p>

answer text <p>As we made clear in our Modern Crime Prevention Strategy, there are many factors that drive crime, and so preventing crime is the responsibility of many institutions, not just the police.</p><p>This Government has provided a strong and comprehensive settlement that is increasing total investment in the police system by over £460m in 2018-19, of which more than £280m from increased council tax precept will go direct to forces to spend locally. It is for operationally independent Chief Constables to decide how best to deploy officers in their force area.</p><p>HMICFRS’s 2017 PEEL: Effectiveness inspection graded 34 forces as good at preventing crime and anti-social behaviour, four more than in 2016. Some forces had changed their approach to neighbourhood policing to ensure sufficient officers and PCSOs dedicated to preventative and community focused activity. A Police Foundation (2017) study of changes to neighbourhood policing found that forces have pursued a variety of strategies in relation to organising neighbourhood teams.</p>

answer text <p>Crime and risk is changing but this Government continues to believe that good neighbourhood policing remains at the core of the British model of how we protect the public. That is why we are increasing total investment in the police system by over £460m in 2018-19, of which more than £280m from increased council tax precept will go direct to forces to spend locally.</p><p>It is for operationally independent Chief Constables to decide how to best deploy officers in their force area to effectively serve and engage their communities and to build their trust and confidence. Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs) are elected by the public to hold Chief constables and the force to account; making the police answerable to the communities they serve.</p><p>HMICFRS has raised concerns about neighbourhood policing being eroded since the Government moved away from a centralised model. This year, inspectors found improvement but remain concerned about the balance between short-term response to demand, and longer-term prevention activity.</p><p>The College of Policing published guidelines on modernising neighbourhood policing in March 2018. This year’s HMICFRS effectiveness report recommended that forces review their approach by October 2018 against these standards. The National Police Chiefs’ Council has also established an implementation group to support forces.</p>

answer text <p>The Home Office is unable to list the institutions that tendered unsuccessfully for funding to carry out research into the nature and prevalence of prostitution in England and Wales. This is commercially sensitive information owned by the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for South Wales, who formally commissioned the research. Equally, the research application itself is commercially sensitive and belongs to the University of Bristol. It is for them to decide whether to publish information within it.</p><p>During the application process, a question on approach to conducting the research in an impartial manner was given the highest weighting in scoring. The University of Bristol has therefore set out in detail how they will ensure ideological neutrality in their approach to this work.</p> more like this

answer text <p>Once the UK has left the EU, we will put in place a new single, skills-based immigration system, which will apply to citizens from both EU and non-EU countries. We have always been clear that we want decisions about the future immigration system to be based on evidence and we are carefully considering the Migration Advisory Committee’s recommendations in its recent report, published 18 September, before setting out our plans.</p><p>We will publish a White Paper which will set out this future system later in the autumn. This will include information on our approach to enforcement.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The Home Office is unable to list the institutions that tendered unsuccessfully for funding to carry out research into the nature and prevalence of prostitution in England and Wales. This is commercially sensitive information owned by the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for South Wales, who formally commissioned the research. Equally, the research application itself is commercially sensitive and belongs to the University of Bristol. It is for them to decide whether to publish information within it.</p><p>During the application process, a question on approach to conducting the research in an impartial manner was given the highest weighting in scoring. The University of Bristol has therefore set out in detail how they will ensure ideological neutrality in their approach to this work.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The prescription of these products by doctors on the Specialist Register of the General Medical Council (GMC) and only where there is an unmet clinical need follows the principles used by the Interim Expert Panel on cannabis-based products for medicinal use. This approach was agreed by senior clinicians on the Expert Panel, Chaired by Dr Michael McBride, Chief Medical Officer for Northern Ireland. This approach was subsequently supported by the Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs (ACMD) in their advice to the Home Secretary on rescheduling cannabis. The ACMD advice has been published and is available at the following link:</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/further-advice-on-scheduling-of-cannabis-derived-medicinal-products" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/further-advice-on-scheduling-of-cannabis-derived-medicinal-products</a></p><p>Any unlicensed medicines, including cannabis-based products for medicinal use, will be supplied under long-standing arrangements for the supply of what are known, in healthcare settings, as ‘specials’. This process is underpinned by the Human Medicines Act and, outside of clinical trials, only allows these unlicensed medicines to be prescribed where there is an unmet clinical need. This restriction is in place because unlicensed medicines have not been through the same quality, safety and efficacy tests as licenced medicines.</p>

answer text <p>Employers already need to carry out right to work checks on EU citizens, as they do with all prospective employees to prevent illegal working. The statutory code of practice and published guidance for employers are clear that EU citizens can evidence their right to work by showing a passport or national identity card, and employers should continue to refer to these documents.</p><p>EU nationals may also use Home Office residence documentation as evidence of their right to work, but they are not currently required to do so. Even in the unlikely event of a no deal situation, this position will not change next March. We will publish a White Paper on the future immigration system later in the autumn.</p> more like this
