A limited number of approved communications staff (such as press office) have access to social media or news sites via downloaded applications on mobile devices and while this is subject to standard rules governing appropriate use of Home Office technology, there are no restrictions on which news sites may be accessed in this manner.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this

answer text <p>The 2014 Protocol to the Forced Labour Convention includes six specific articles with action for governments. We are confident that the UK already meets the requirements of these six articles in existing laws and regulations, which will be further strengthened through the provisions in the Modern Slavery Bill. UK compliance was thoroughly assessed as part of the negotiations of the Protocol in May and June 2014, at which the UK was represented.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this

answer text <p>The Government supports the Protocol to the 2014 Forced Labour Convention and intends to ratify it. A Written Ministerial Statement indicating the Government’s intention to ratify the Protocol was laid before Parliament on 7 January 2015. The Protocol was subsequently laid before Parliament on 6 February and must remain for 21 sitting days to allow scrutiny by both Houses.</p><p>On 24 March, at the end of the 21 sitting days, if neither House has indicated an objection to ratification of the Protocol, the next stage of the process may begin. There will not be sufficient time to complete this process prior to the dissolution of Parliament. However there is no deadline for ratifying the Protocol.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this

answer text <p>Victims of human trafficking can apply for civil legal aid for advice and representation in relation to immigration matters and for damages and employment claims arising from their trafficking exploitation. Through provisions in the Modern Slavery Bill, victims of slavery, servitude and forced or compulsory labour will also be eligible for civil legal aid in the same situations.<br><br>The recent review of the National Referral Mechanism recommended that legal aid should be available from the point of referral. The Government has committed to piloting a range of changes to the National Referral Mechanism in light of recommendations made by the review, which will include the provision of legal aid at this earlier point.<br><br>'Matter starts' are the mechanism used by the Legal Aid Agency to monitor the amount of work conducted by its legal aid providers and do not limit legal aid availability for applicants. Where they are eligible, victims of human trafficking will always be able to access legal aid.</p>

answer text <p>No case of child abuse is ‘historical’ for victims and survivors. They must live with the consequences of their abuse each and every day of their lives. The Independent Panel Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse has been set up to determine whether state and non-state institutions take, and have taken, seriously their duty of care to protect children from sexual abuse within England and Wales. Any specific allegation to the Inquiry will, where necessary, be referred to law enforcement bodies for consideration for criminal investigation. The Home Office has funded Operation Hydrant, which is the national policing response to the oversight and co-ordination of all child abuse investigations concerning persons of public prominence or those offences which have taken place in institutional settings. The day-to-day investigation into cases of child sexual abuse, including abuse that has taken place in the past, is an operational matter for the police and law enforcement.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The Government announced an extra £7m funding to help victims of sexual violence in December 2014. £2.15m was allocated to the 84 existing Female Rape Support Centres and two funds were established to allocate the remainder: a £2m fund to non-statutory organisations reporting an increase in demand as a direct result of the announcement of the Child Sexual Abuse Inquiry (Fund 1), and a £2.85m fund for non-statutory organisations providing support across England and Wales to victims of sexual abuse to help meet the increased demand on those services (Fund 2). Organisations that applied to Fund 2 were asked whether they supported adults who were sexually abused as children. £2.33m of the £2.85m has been allocated to organisations that showed they provide support to adults who were sexually abused as children; this includes over £1.6m to organisations offering counselling services. These two funds are being administered by the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Norfolk, supported by the Home Office. Aside from the attendance of the Chief Constable for Norfolk at the Oversight Board, no police time has been spent on assessment or allocation. We do not centrally hold information on the number of non-statutory organisations providing counselling without pre-determined time limits to adults who were sexually abused as children.</p>
