answer text <p>In response to the two questions regarding drug strength, I can confirm that:</p><p>(a) the testing and analysis of seized drugs is carried out by forensic service providers and not the National Crime Agency (NCA).</p><p>(b) the National Crime Agency (NCA) does monitor the purity levels and adulteration patterns of certain illegal drugs seized and submitted for forensic analysis in England and Wales, however this does not currently or routinely include the monitoring of cannabis seizures. The NCA provides purity data for other illicit drugs to Focal Point UK who publish this data in their annual report.

answer text <p>Schedule 3 to the Counter-Terrorism and Border Security introduced new powers that would allow ports and border officers to stop, question, search and detain persons at UK ports to determine whether they are or have been engaged in hostile activity.</p><p>The Bill completed its parliamentary passage on Tuesday 22 January but has not yet received Royal Assent. Following Royal Assent, the Schedule 3 powers will not come into force until the associated statutory guidance has been subject to public consultation, debated by both Houses of Parliament and subsequently commenced by regulations.</p><p>These powers were identified as a key gap in the capability of UK law enforcement to tackle the threat from hostile activity and the Government is pleased that Parliament has supported their passage in the Bill.</p><p>Once in force, the powers will be subject to the scrutiny and oversight of the Investigatory Powers Commissioner who will report annually on their exercise.</p> more like this

Board members include the UK’s Anti-Corruption Champion whose role is to oversee the government’s response to domestic and international corruption.</p><p>The Champion and other Board Members regularly engage with external stakeholders, including civil society organisations. This provides civil society with a channel to share their views with the ECSB on the development and implementation of policy. Other board members include other government Ministers, heads of law enforcement, CEOs of the major banks and senior representatives from the accountancy, legal and property sectors.</p> more like this

answer text <p>Cabinet Office grant governance standards require grants to be reviewed at least annually, taking into account delivery across the period. This then results in a decision to continue, discontinue, amend funding levels or the scope of the Grant. A multi-year grant process would inhibit the outcomes of these reviews and commercial assurance processes from being implemented.</p><p>It is important that the Home Office ensures that the Recipient has managed the Grant in line with Government standards and that the Grant continues to represent value for money for the tax payer.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The Home Office runs the Asset Recovery Incentivisation Scheme (ARIS), in which criminal property recovered under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 is divided between the Home Office and operational partners, based on their relative contribution to recovering these funds. These funds are calculated and paid quarterly in arrears to agencies, as soon as possible after the end of each quarter.</p><p>The safer communities fund is not operated by the Home Office but by local police forces. There is an expectation that payments made under ARIS will be used to further drive up performance on asset recovery and, where appropriate, to fund local crime fighting priorities for the benefit of the community.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The British Nationality Act 1981 provides the Secretary of State with powers to deprive a person of citizenship status. Section 40(2) allows the Secretary of State to deprive any person of British citizenship, should they deem it conducive to the public good to do so. Section 40(3) allows the Secretary of State to deprive a person who has obtained citizenship by naturalisation or registration, where the Secretary of State is satisfied that citizenship was obtained by means of fraud, false representation or concealment of material fact.</p><p>Three reports have been published to date in 2015, 2017 and 2018, providing figures for section 40(2) deprivations since 2010, this is the deprivation power most likely to be applied to those returning from Syria.
