star this property answer text <p>The Government recognises the importance of effective and timely handling of correspondence with members of the House of Lords. Government departments should aim to provide a substantive response to routine correspondence within a maximum of 20 working days. However, sometimes circumstances dictate that it will not be possible to provide a response within this timeframe. In such instances, departments are advised to issue a ‘holding’ response until a more substantive response can be provided.</p><p>The Cabinet Office publishes an annual report detailing departmental performance in the handling of correspondence from members of both Houses. Lord Young of Cookham set out the 2017 performance figures in a Written Statement on 26 June 2018 (HLWS771). The 2018 performance figures will be published in summer 2019.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Christians Against Poverty (CAP) is a charity independent of the Church of England. CAP run over 1,000 debt advice centres across the country supporting individuals and families in need. The work of CAP has recently been evaluated by the LSE and its report concluded that the benefit of CAP's work to society was over £31.5million per year, in return for an annual expenditure of £8.7 million.</p><p> </p><p>More information about the report can be found here: <a href="https://emea01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fcapuk.org%2Fconnect%2Fpolicy-and-government%2Fnever-just-a-number&amp;data=02%7C01%7Csimon.stanley%40churchofengland.org%7C34f7d4a8394741b18ed008d66111b7ea%7C95e2463b3ab047b49ac1587c77ee84f0%7C0%7C0%7C636803126060672730&amp;sdata=v4q25FzDvzbjizPT%2FuhLGbCUyvCLqMSJB5zXx8HFftM%3D&amp;reserved=0" target="_blank">https://capuk.org/connect/policy-and-government/never-just-a-number</a></p><p> </p><p>The parishes of the Church of England often partner with organisations such as Christians Against Poverty to provide a range of services to support their local communities. The Church of England recently surveyed its parishes and discovered that 80% of congregations are involved in one or more forms of social action. Data gathered from 13,000 churches shows that the biggest area of work is in food banks - with 60%, or nearly 8,000 churches - involved in either running or supporting food banks through volunteers, donations and providing venues.</p><p> </p>

To calculate or estimate this would involve a manual check of contracts held and this would incur disproportionate cost.</p><p>For future exercises with an anticipated contract value above £5 million per annum, the CPS will apply the requirements of Procurement Policy Note 04/18 (published 29 November 2018).

star this property answer text <p>In 2017-18, the number of non-convictions due to complainant retraction was 188, down from 198 the previous year. This accounted for 1.3% of all completed hate crime prosecutions. The Crown Prosecution Service is working closely with criminal justice partners to ensure the support offered to complainants and witnesses in hate crime cases is tailored to meet their individual needs.</p><p>The majority of hate crime prosecutions (75.4%) result in a guilty plea from defendants, reducing the need for complainants and witnesses to give evidence in court. However, where live evidence is required, the CPS is committed to supporting them to give their best evidence. This includes consideration of whether they would benefit from special measures such as giving evidence behind a screen or via a video link.</p> more like this
