We are investing £100m a year to strengthen the frontline by recruiting around 2,500 more prison officers by the end of 2018. We are rolling out improved training across the estate for staff on suicide and self-harm reduction and have put in place specialist roles - regional safer custody leads - in every region to provide advice to prisons and to spread good practice on identifying and supporting prisoners at risk. We are providing grant funding to the Samaritans to support the prisoner Listener scheme and are providing an additional funding in 2017-18 to fund a number of other projects, including a learning tool for staff and emotional resilience training for prisoners.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Fundamental Rights Agency (FRA) provides assistance and advice on fundamental rights issues to the EU institutions and to Member States when implementing Union law. The FRA is also tasked with promoting fundamental rights within the EU, which it does through the collation, analysis and dissemination of data on fundamental rights across the Member States. As the Balance of Competencies Review in 2014 showed, a small number of UK NGOs have used FRA data to support their work.</p><p> </p><p>The UK contributes to the FRA budget through its contribution to the overall EU budget. The FRA’s budget for 2017 is 22.7 million euro. While civil service time is spent dealing with FRA reports and activities, time costs are not logged on this basis. A UK official attends National Liaison Officer network meetings at the FRA; travel and accommodation expenses for these meetings are covered by the FRA.</p> more like this

We have specifically protected legal aid (both for initial advice and representation), subject to the statutory means and merits tests, for civil legal services provided in relation to contravention of the Equality Act 2010. Publicly funded advice continues to be available for Employment Tribunal discrimination claims, and publicly funded advice and representation is available in the Employment Appeal Tribunal.</p><p> </p><p>The Government’s review of the impact of the introduction of fees in the Employment Tribunals was published on 31 January 2017.

star this property answer text <p>Under international law, the United Kingdom has undertaken to comply with the European Convention on Human Rights. The Human Rights Act 1998 gives further effect in domestic law to certain rights and freedoms drawn from the Convention, called the Convention rights. Section 6(1) of the Act makes it unlawful for a public authority to act in a way which is incompatible with a Convention right. Under section 6(3), “public authority” is defined as including a court or tribunal, and “any person certain of whose function are functions of a public nature”; but does not include either House of Parliament or a person exercising functions in connection with proceedings in Parliament. Section 73(2) of the Care Act 2011 additionally specifies that a provider of regulated care and support that has been arranged or paid for by a local authority or Health and Social Care trust is also to be taken as exercising a function of a public nature for the purposes of the Human Rights Act. Any allegation that a public authority has acted incompatibly with a Convention right may be brought to court as specified in section 7 of the Act.</p><p> </p><p>Guidelines produced by the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe are not legally binding.</p>
