star this property answer text <p>A mix of different tenures is vital to meet the needs of a wide range of people, and allow the sector to build the right homes in the right places. Alongside affordable home ownership to help those struggling to purchase their first home, our expanded programme now offers two rental products. Affordable Rent was introduced to maximise taxpayers’ money. It allows us to build more homes for every pound of Government investment - so more people in housing need can have access to a good quality home at a sub-market rent. Social rent will meet the needs of struggling families and those most at risk of homelessness in areas of the country where affordability is most pressured.</p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>An adult offender who is sentenced to a custodial term for sexual offences against children will be subject to licensed supervision on release from custody. It falls to the National Probation Service (NPS) to supervise the offender upon release. The NPS will work with the Police and other agencies to manage the offender’s risk upon release, under the statutory Multi-Agency Public Protection Arrangements (MAPPA).</p><p> </p><p>Where an offender is serving a life, indeterminate or extended determinate sentence for sexual offences against children and becomes eligible for release on parole, it falls to the Parole Board to set the licence conditions for the offender upon release. Since 30 November 2018 it has been open to the Parole Board to include a condition in relation to GPS monitoring in the offender’s licence, where it is necessary and proportionate to manage the risks and issues posed by the offender.</p><p> </p><p>There are other licence conditions available to manage the risks presented by offenders convicted of sexual offences against children. These may include a ban from having contact with children, from entering certain areas, or carrying out certain types of work and a ban from contacting their victim(s). Furthermore, rehabilitative measures are available, including accredited programmes, drug treatment or mental health support. An offender manager has the power to recall an offender to prison, where the offender fails to comply with their licence conditions in a way which indicates heightened risk to the public. A full list of the available measures available on licence are listed in Annex A and B of Probation Instruction 09/2015 “Licence Conditions and Temporary Travel Aboard”. This is available online here:</p><p>https://www.justice.gov.uk/downloads/offenders/probation-instructions/pi-09-2015-licence-conditions-and-temporary-travel-abroad.doc</p><p> </p><p>In addition to the oversight of MAPPA, and to supplement licence conditions, an adult offender sentenced to imprisonment for sexual offences against children is subject to the sexual offenders’ notification requirements (commonly referred to as ‘being on the sex offenders register’). Thereby, the offender must notify the Police of various personal details, including: name(s), address, date of birth, passport and national insurance number. This takes place annually and whenever such details change. The offender may also expect to receive unscheduled visits from Police officers. The Police also have a range of legislative measures available to them in order to manage offenders both during and outside the licence period.</p>

star this property answer text <p>As outlined in our answer to HL16250, the British Government is taking a number of actions to prevent conflict. In Sub-Saharan Africa, we are:</p><ul><li><p>Using funding from the Conflict, Stability and Security Fund (CSSF) which has led, for example, to the roll out of new peacekeeping-intelligence architecture in the three missions with the highest number of casualties - <strong>Mali, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and the Central African Republic</strong>. Our sizeable funding contribution to the UN is used as leverage to advocate for UN reform and improve the way it operates.</p></li></ul><ul><li><p>Promoting peace and security in <strong>Burkina Faso, Chad and Mali</strong> through diplomacy and targeted support. We support UN and French security efforts through direct contributions to MINUSMA in Northern Mali and the deployment of three RAF Chinook helicopters to France’s Counter-Terrorism Operation Barkhane. We work closely with the G5 and other partners to provide life-saving assistance and protection to people on the frontline of conflict. The UK is also focusing on developing programmes to tackle the long-term drivers of instability and poverty.</p></li></ul><ul><li><p>Urging all parties in <strong>Benin</strong> to engage in dialogue to overcome their differences and find a peaceful solution. We share the concerns of the EU, France, the US and the UN about acts of violence in Benin following the 28 April legislative elections.</p></li><li><p>Regularly addressing the situation in the North-West and South-West (Anglophone) regions of <strong>Cameroon</strong> with international partners including the UN, EU, Commonwealth and African Union to encourage and support efforts to resolve the crisis. The UK remains deeply concerned about the deteriorating humanitarian and human rights situation in the Anglophone regions and the impact it is having on the lives of ordinary civilians. We have shared experiences with the Government of Cameroon (GoC) on conflict resolution; and remain ready to provide further support. We raised our concerns during briefings at the UN Security Council on 4 and 12 June, and led on a statement with Austria at the UN Human Rights Council in March, which was supported by 39 countries, calling on the GoC to establish a credible political dialogue to address root causes of the conflict.</p></li></ul><ul><li><p>Providing the <strong>Central African Republic (CAR)</strong> with significant humanitarian spend (£63m since 2013) and core contributions to key multilateral organisations on the ground, such as the World Bank and the EU. Support to UN peacekeeping efforts include assessed contributions (£40.5m per annum to MINUSCA peacekeeping mission and €2m to the EU Training Mission).</p></li></ul><ul><li><p>Pressing our long-term approach to stability in the <strong>Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC),</strong> including through significant contributions to the United Nations Stabilisation Mission in the DRC (MONUSCO). We are supporting security reforms, stabilisation and peace building initiatives through DFID programmes and the CSSF.</p></li><li><p>Providing training to <strong>Nigeria’s</strong> armed forces combat insurgent groups, support communities to better respond and manage the effects of violent conflict, and to support the reintegration of former members of Boko Haram. We are also working closely with the EU, US and UN to provide technical support to the Nigerian Government to address the underlying causes of intercommunal violence affecting many parts of Nigeria, including the recently announced National Livestock Transformation Plan, which aims to mitigate escalating violence between pastoralists and farmers. We are currently reviewing how we might further assist the Nigerian Government in their efforts to tackle conflict in the northeast of the country.</p></li><li><p>Building on the work of the UK-hosted London Conference on <strong>Somalia</strong> in 2017, which brought together Somalia’s key partners, including the UN, EU and a number of members of the Commonwealth. This established a set of agreements that provide the foundation for a more coherent international approach to Somalia with conflict resolution at its core. We are careful to ensure that all UK policies and programmes in Somalia maintain a focus on conflict sensitivity, and regularly undertake conflict analysis to support this. In particular, our work includes activity under the CSSF to address the drivers of conflict and build capacity at both local and regional levels.</p></li></ul><ul><li><p>Supporting community-based peacebuilding programmes, in concert with the UN and other international partners, namely the African Union, in areas of instability and conflict in <strong>Sudan</strong>. The UK has a long standing role in supporting sustainable peace in Sudan. As a member of the Troika and bilaterally, we have supported progress in the Peace Process seeking to find a solution to the conflicts in Darfur and the Two Areas. In addition the UK plays a leading role in the UN Security Council, particularly as the penholder on the mandate for UNAMID – the African Union hybrid Mission in Darfur.</p></li></ul><ul><li><p>The Minister for Africa met with <strong>Togolese</strong> President Gnassingbé and reiterated the importance of delivering 2020 Presidential elections on time and a return to inclusive politics. The UK continues to encourage all parties to avoid violence and respect the human rights of all Togolese people. The UK supports the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) brokered roadmap, along with the EU, which has seen Togo recently adopt two-term limits on presidential terms, in line with other ECOWAS states. The change however does not apply retrospectively and has been rejected by the opposition.</p></li></ul>
