star this property answer text <p>The Government signed the Istanbul Convention to signal the UK’s strong commitment to tackling violence against women and girls (VAWG). On 30 October 2018, in line with the requirements of the Preventing and Combating Violence Against Women and Domestic Violence (Ratification of Convention) Act 2017, we published a progress report which set out that, in most respects, the UK already complies with, or goes further than, the Convention requires. We have significantly strengthened the legislative framework; introduced new protective tools; and issued a range of guidance and support for frontline professionals.</p><p>We have always been clear on our commitment to ratifying the Convention. The Domestic Abuse Bill will be another step towards meeting that commitment by extending extraterritorial jurisdiction over offences required by the Convention which, for England and Wales, is the final legislative step necessary for ratification. We published the Domestic Abuse Bill in draft form for pre-legislative scrutiny on 21 January 2019.</p><p>As the criminal law and the majority of the areas covered by the Convention are devolved to Scotland and Northern Ireland, the Devolved Administrations are considering what legislative or other changes are necessary for compliance with the Convention in their territories. The Government liaises regularly with the Devolved Administrations on VAWG issues and we will continue working closely with the Scottish Government and Northern Ireland Executive.</p>

The Government’s VAWG National Statement of Expectations encourages such decisions to be taken at a local level and should be driven by local need.</p><p>Our £17 million three-year VAWG Service Transformation Fund, is providing funding to 41 projects across England and Wales to embed local best practice and ensure that early intervention and prevention, not crisis response, is the norm. All local authorities, Police and Crime Commissioners and Clinical Commissioning Groups were invited to apply, however not every area took up the opportunity to do so. The application process was highly competitive, and decisions were taken to ensure a reasonable spread of funding geographically, by type of VAWG, and by stage of intervention. No funding has been provided through the VAWG Service Transformation Fund directly to Barnsley or South Yorkshire.</p><p>Details of the allocated funding is available at:</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/violence-against-women-and-girls-service-transformation-fund-successful-bids-2017-to-2020" target="_blank"> https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/violence-against-women-and-girls-service-transformation-fund-successful-bids-2017-to-2020</a></p>

star this property answer text <p>The De Minimis Assessment which accompanied the society lotteries reform consultation outlined the assessments made of the benefits to good causes of the proposals to increase sales and prize limits, including increasing the per draw prize limit to £1 million (link: https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/720931/society_lottery_dma_pdf_final.pdf).</p><p> </p><p>The assessment shows that increasing these limits in line with the Government’s preferred options is likely to increase the amount of money charities and others can raise for the good causes they support. We are not in a position to quantify this at present, as we do not know how many large society lotteries will increase their sales and prize limits, or change their business models to account for the changes being proposed.</p><p> </p><p>I am currently considering the views expressed in the consultation, from meeting with stakeholders and members, including those in favour and those against these reforms, and I hope to respond in the first half of the year. I am happy to have further meetings with the Rt Hon Member and others before our response is published.</p>
