answer text <p>The National Fund was set up by a trust deed in 1928. The Fund is held on trust for the purpose of reducing the National Debt. According to expert evidence, there is no realistic prospect of the Fund ever amounting to a sum sufficient to pay off the whole of the National Debt. On 22<sup>nd</sup> May 2018 the former Attorney General made an application to the High Court to vary the terms of the charitable trust.</p><p>While we expect the substantive hearing to take place in 2019, we have not yet received a hearing date from the High Court.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The assessment of the sentence of imprisonment for public protection (IPP) found that they had been used far more widely than intended, and the IPP sentence was subsequently abolished in 2012 and replaced with a new regime of determinate sentences alongside life sentences for the most serious offenders.</p><p> </p><p>Attention is now focused on reducing the risk and thereby the successful rehabilitation of those prisoners who continue to serve the IPP sentence. A joint action plan is in place, co-owned by Her Majesty’s Prison and Probation Service (HMPPS) and the Parole Board, with the specific aim of providing opportunities for prisoners to progress towards safe release. The plan reviewed regularly to ensure that the actions in it meet the changing needs of the IPP population.</p><p> </p><p>This approach is working, with high numbers of unreleased IPP prisoners achieving a release decision year on year: 562 in 2015, 576 in 2016, 616 I 2017 and 506 in 2018. However, it is important to remember that prisoners serving IPP sentences have committed serious sexual or violent offences - and many remain in prison because the independent parole board has assessed their risk of serious harm to the public to be too great to warrant their release.</p>

answer text <p>The Ministry of Justice has published information regarding the number of prosecutions for offences under the Data Protection Act 2018 in England and Wales which can be found at the following link –</p><p> </p><p><a href="https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/804510/HO-code-tool-principal-offence-2018.xlsx" target="_blank">https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/804510/HO-code-tool-principal-offence-2018.xlsx</a></p><p> </p><p>In the ‘Detailed Offence’ field, filter by -</p><p>‘Obtain / procure disclose / retain personal data without consent of controller’</p><p> </p><p>The total number of prosecutions that resulted in fines for breaches of the Data Protection Act 2018 will appear in the pivot table.</p><p> </p><p>Note that the above offence was the only breach of the Data Protection Act 2018 for which there were any prosecutions in 2018. The Data Protection Act 2018 consists of 7 other offences for which there were no prosecutions in 2018.</p><p> </p><p>Offences related to the Data Protection Act were introduced in May 2018. The number of prosecutions and those convicted of these offences are therefore relatively low as it takes time for the police to record, investigate and charge offences, before proceedings reach the courts.</p>

answer text <p>We are taking decisive steps to tackle the use of drones as a supply route for organised criminals to bring contraband, including drugs, into prisons.</p><p> </p><p>Prisons use netting and window grilles to stop drones from delivering contraband successfully. To deter criminals, HM Prison and Probation Service is also working closely with the police to arrest suspected drone operators and secure convictions. Thanks to such joint working, and following the largest investigation of its kind, an organised criminal gang of 15 were collectively sentenced in October 2018 to nearly 40 years in prison for using drones to deliver drugs into Merseyside prisons. The ringleader received a sentence of 10 years, the highest single sentence for drone-related activity to date.</p><p> </p><p>Where contraband gets into prisons using a drone, our counter-measures assist us to retrieve them and frustrate further criminal activity. In respect of drugs, our Drugs Taskforce is working with law enforcement to restrict supply. It has also developed a national Prison Drug Strategy which was published in April to reduce demand for drugs and build recovery, as well as restrict supply. We have also invested £70 million to improve safety, security and decency in prisons, allowing us to fund new X-ray body scanners, improved searching techniques, phone-blocking technology and a financial crime unit to target organised crime group members operating in prisons.</p>
