star this property answer text <p /> <p>From April 2010 Local Criminal Justice Boards (LCJBs) took responsibility for the governance and performance management of the 143 accredited Specialist Domestic Violence Courts (SDVCs) across England and Wales. As of March 2014 there were 137 accredited SDVCs. However, the closure of SDVCs in some areas does not necessarily mean that provision in that area has ceased, as many of the SDVC systems cover a number of courthouses. Closure of an SDVC in one courthouse would simply mean that the case would be heard in another accredited courthouse within the Local Justice Area.</p><p> </p><p>HMCTS remains committed to a partnership approach to supporting domestic violence victims going through the Criminal Justice Process.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p /> <p>Violence in prisons is not tolerated and assaults on our hardworking staff are unacceptable. We do not underestimate the hard work and challenges that prison staff face on a daily basis which is why we have been working extremely closely with the police and CPS to tackle this issue. A new joint protocol produced by the Prison Service, Crown Prosecution Service and Association of Chief Police Officers will set out that when there are serious assaults on prison staff, the perpetrators will be prosecuted unless there is a good reason why not.</p><p>The number of assaults on staff is published in the Safety in Custody Bulletin available at this link: <a title="https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/safety-in-custody-statistics" href="https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/safety-in-custody-statistics" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/safety-in-custody-statistics</a>. Table 3.1 provides the total number of staff assaults whereas the number of prisoner on officer assaults can be found in table 3.8 of the annual tables.</p><p>With the exception of prison officers assaulted during “prisoner on officer” assaults, the role of the staff member involved is not recorded and so any staff members that are assaulted in other types of assault incident cannot be identified by their specific role. The incident reporting system does not record detailed information about staff members that are assaulted and so we are not able to provide the requested breakdown. Whilst this information is not held centrally assaults on staff are taken very seriously and as such are recorded and managed locally.</p>

In 2003 an investigation was undertaken by the OFT into the terms and conditions used in contracts with consumers purchasing goods under the PowerPlan scheme sold by Scottish Power plc. As a result a series of recommendations regarding those terms and conditions were made to the companies who operated the scheme, and I understand that the recommendations were implemented by the companies before they entered insolvency.</p><p> </p><p>More generally, the OFT investigated the market for extended warranties in the UK in 2002 and, having found that competition in the market did not appear to be working effectively, referred the market to the Competition Commission (CC). Following the CC’s report in 2003, the DTI implemented the Supply of Extended Warranties on Domestic Electrical Goods Order which came into force in April 2005.
