This full funding package has now been allocated, and officials are in the process of making the final funding transfers. Payments have been made directly to the French Interior Ministry and its constituent bodies, or where necessary directly to organisations responsible for security infrastructure improvements.</p><p><br>Payments have not been made directly to migrants. However, a portion of the Sandhurst funding has been utilised to support access to French domestic asylum services. £3.6 million was specifically allocated to funding the development of the Dublin and Dubs process to support transfers of eligible children to the UK, including training for those working with unaccompanied children, family tracing and targeted information campaigns.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government is very concerned about increases in knife crime and its impact on victims, families and communities. The latest statistics published by the Office for National Statistics on 25 April for the year ending December 2018 show an increase of 6 per cent in police recorded knife crime.</p><p>The action we are taking to tackle knife crime is set out in our Serious Vio-lence Strategy and includes new legislation in the Offensive Weapons Bill to introduce Knife Crime Prevention Orders, to make it an offence to possess certain offensive weapons in private, and stopping knives being sent to residential addresses after they are bought online unless the seller has arrangements with a delivery company to verify age.</p><p>We are also raising awareness among young people of the dangers of carrying a knife through our national media campaign - #knifefree – and supporting early intervention through the £22 million Early Intervention Youth Fund, which is already supporting 29 local projects, and we have also introduced the £200 million Youth Endowment Fund, which will be delivered over the next 10 years to support interventions with children and young people at risk of involvement in crime and violence, focusing on those most at risk. The charity Impetus, working in partnership with the Early Intervention Foundation and Social Investment Business, is now operating the Fund We also continue to support the police national weeks of action under Operation Sceptre.</p><p>In addition, the Chancellor of the Exchequer announced in the Spring Statement on 13 March that there will be £100 million additional funding for the police in 2019/20 to tackle serious violence, including £80m of new funding from the Treasury. The majority of the investment will largely go towards supporting police forces most affected by the violence we are seeing, but the funding will also support Violence Reduction Units, bringing together a range of agencies, including health, education, social services and others, to develop a multi-agency approach to preventing serious violence.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government funds a national network of Police Counter Terrorism Security Advisors (CTSAs) to ensure owners, operators, and local authorities, are aware of terrorist threat methodologies and steps they can take to reduce their vulnerability to terrorist attacks. This includes the provision of advice and guidance on protective security measures to planners, designers and architects at significant new builds such as the Holocaust Memorial and Learning Centre. A Metropolitan Police Service CTSA has been part of the security assessment process for the Holocaust memorial, working jointly with the other partners involved.</p><p>Security advice, as part of planning policies in England, is provided through the Government’s National Planning Policy Framework and associated Guidance. On 12 July 2017, the Chief Planning Officer wrote to all local planning authorities to reiterate the role the planning system plays in ensuring appropriate measures are in place to help prevent terrorist threats. There is also a range of further Government advice and guidance available online, including the Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure’s ‘Protecting Crowded Places: Design and Technical Issues’ guide.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Following positive feedback on the proposal made in the 2017 primary assessment consultation, we committed to introducing the reception baseline assessment (RBA) at the beginning of the reception year to form the baseline for primary school progress measures. The consultation received 4,165 responses including representations from headteachers, teachers, teaching unions and sector experts. A majority of responses demonstrated clear support for moving the baseline assessment to reception. It is important to note the RBA is not a test - it is a short, teacher-led assessment and it will provide practitioners with valuable one-to-one time with their pupils within the first few weeks of reception.

We are committed to alleviating all forms of homelessness and want to make sure we get to the root of the problem unique to every local authority, tackling the complex range of reasons why people are homeless. That is why localised funding and plans are so important to dealing with the issue, and we are determined to provide local authorities with tailored support for their specific challenges.</p><p>Government commissioned independent research better to understand the causes of homelessness and rough sleeping.

The Government has now committed over £1.2 billion to tackle homelessness and rough sleeping over the spending review period.</p><p>This Government, and my Department, has policy responsibility for setting the national framework for homelessness and rough sleeping policy in England alone. It should be noted therefore that the interventions detailed in this response refer to England alone.</p><p>In its first year, our Rough Sleeping Initiative (RSI) provided over 1,750 new bed spaces and 500 staff. This year we have expanded the RSI with investment of £46 million for 246 areas – providing funding for an estimated 2,600 bed spaces and 750 staff.</p><p>We know that many rough sleepers have substance misuse needs, and also that rough sleepers can struggle to access the support they need to tackle substance dependency. As set out in the Rough Sleeping Strategy we are conducting a rapid audit of health service provision to rough sleepers, including mental health and substance misuse treatment; £2 million has been allocated to test community-based models of access to health services for rough sleepers, including substance misuse services, and new training is being made available for front-line workers to help them support rough sleepers under the influence of new psychoactive substances such as spice.</p><p>We are also working across Government to ensure that rough sleepers who require treatment for substance misuse have access to the appropriate services. This includes working with the Home Office to ensure rough sleepers are considered in the forthcoming Alcohol Strategy, and continuing to support the forthcoming independent review of drugs policy, led by Dame Carol Black.</p>
