star this property answer text <p>The fundamental aims of the Commission are not only to ensure that the House is valued and effective in holding the Government to account and scrutinising legislation, but that individual Members have the information, advice, support and technology they need to be effective in their work and to engage closely with their constituents.</p><p>We are coming to the end of a programme of savings, during which the governing principle has been that any cost reductions should not adversely affect the ability of the House and its Members to carry out their parliamentary functions. Indeed many of the changes have been a spur to innovation in the support available to Members. Now that we are on track to achieve the savings target, we have the opportunity to re-appraise the provision of resources and ensure, for example in the area of select committees, that we are providing the right level of support.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The current strategy for the House of Commons Service, which covers the period 2013 to 2017, was endorsed by the Commission in January 2013. It is published on the Parliament website at: <a href="http://www.parliament.uk/mps-lords-and-offices/offices/commons/management-board/management-board-publications1/hoc-strategy/" target="_blank">http://www.parliament.uk/mps-lords-and-offices/offices/commons/management-board/management-board-publications1/hoc-strategy/</a>.</p><p>The Management Board has started the process of drawing up a strategy for the next Parliament, which will build on the current one. This will draw on the views of Members, as well as a large-scale consultation exercise with staff. Emerging ideas will be discussed with the Commission in the new year, the intention is then to take the draft strategy to the new Commission in the 2015 Parliament for its agreement. I have noted the hon. Member’s suggestion to the Governance Committee that the vision should be “This House exists to serve the people of this country and the people who represent them”, and that seems to me an important point to reflect in the House Service’s strategy.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Tackling abuse is a priority for this Government. We will continue the work of overhauling how our police, social services and other agencies work together to protect vulnerable children. To this end, we have prioritised child sexual abuse as a national threat like serious and organised crime, which means police forces now have a duty to collaborate with each other across force boundaries to safeguard children.</p><p>The provision of police training is an operational matter. The College of Policing and the National Policing Lead for child protection and abuse investigation have set the requirement for all forces to train all new and existing police staff to respond to child sexual exploitation and abuse, including call handlers, Police Community Support Officers, police officers, detectives and specialist investigators.</p><p>The College of Policing has issued Achieving Best Evidence guidance and training for all officers engaged in interviewing children and vulnerable witnesses. This includes training on the sensitivity needed when dealing with victims and witnesses who may be vulnerable as well as working with partners – such as social workers – and their involvement in interviews.</p><p>Specialist courses for child sexual abuse and rape specialist investigators also expand on these requirements in relation to interviewing children and vulnerable adults.</p><p>The role of social workers in these investigations, including their training, is a matter for the Department for Education. The guidance issued by DfE in March 2015, “Working Together to Safeguard Children”, sets out how social workers and their managers, as well as other agencies including the police, should work together and follow the Achieving Best Evidence guidance.</p><p>The Department of Health are responsible for the training of social workers working with vulnerable adults who may have been sexually abused as children or in adulthood.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Child abuse is an horrific crime and we have been clear that if anyone has been a victim of child sexual abuse, or knows of someone who has been a victim, then they should report it to the police so that it can be thoroughly investigated. Operation Pallial is an independent investigation by the National Crime Agency. It has conducted 275 Achieving Best Evidence (ABE) interviews. A total of eight people have been convicted of one or more offences as a result of Operation Pallial investigations. Of the eight convicted so far, three had convictions for similar offences and five did not have criminal convictions for similar offences. The costs of the police operation for Operation Pallial are £3.7 million covering the financial years 2012/13 until 2015/16. The estimated costs for 2016/17 are £891,000. These costs represent the policing costs of the investigation. The Home Office does not hold information on the costs of this operation relating to the Crown Prosecution Service or the courts.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The provision of victim care is a matter for the police and police and crime commissioners, who, since April 2015, have the responsibility for commissioning victim service provision. Where a crime has been reported, the Victims Code (October 2015) sets out key entitlements to victims of all crime. Victims under 18 years of age automatically qualify for enhanced entitlements. The service provider must ensure that this information is passed on as necessary to other services providers with responsibilities under the Code and to victim support services where appropriate.</p><p>Through the National Cyber Security Programme (NCSP), Government has also invested over £90m over the last five years to increase law enforcement capability and capacity to respond to cyber criminality. This has included funding for bespoke officers within the Regional Organised Crime Units and the Metropolitan Police Service to deliver protective advice and support to victims and those at risk.</p><p>It has also included training for all police officers and staff by the College of Policing, which has specific modules on working with young victims. We will look to build on this work over the next five years, as part of the increased investment of £1.9bn to protect the UK from cyber attack.</p>
