In April 2013, the UK introduced Immigration Rules to allow stateless persons to be formally recognised as stateless and granted leave to remain where they do not otherwise qualify under any other provisions and cannot be removed to the country of their former habitual residence because they are not admissible for purposes of residence there. Those who have committed serious crimes or are considered to be a danger to the security or the public order of the UK are not eligible for stateless leave. Those who qualify under the Immigration Rules are normally granted 30 months limited leave to remain and can apply for further leave when that expires. They are eligible to apply for settlement after completing 5 years limited leave.</p><p> </p><p>Stateless persons and their dependent children, who believe that they have a fear of return to their home country, can also make an application for asylum under the 1951 Refugee Convention.

For transfers under Article 8.2 there is the additional requirement that the relative – a grandparent or adult aunt or uncle – is able to take care of the child. We will transfer children where a Take Charge Request is raised and who meet these requirements to the UK for their asylum claim to be assessed here.

Most of the recorded increase is thought to be due to improvements in police recording of crime following a critical HMIC report in 2014. However, some recent increases in knife crime in some areas of the country are thought to be real increases. The Ending Gang Violence and Exploitation programme launched in January 2016 has built on the work of the previous Ending Gang and Youth Violence programme. It has had a particular focus on tacking county lines and the associated abuse and violence. This includes a programme of local reviews to build resilience in areas to gang related violence and exploitation. We have just announced an extended programme of reviews and support for 2017/18.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>There are three cross-Government strategies in place which address different aspects of the illegal drugs trade and which, taken together, provide a holistic approach to tackling drug trafficking in the UK.</p><p>The Government’s Drug Strategy, published in July 2017, sets out a balanced approach, which brings together law enforcement, health, community and global partners to tackle the illicit drug trade, protect the most vulnerable and help those with drug dependency to recover and turn their lives around. Tough enforcement is a fundamental part of our drug strategy. We are taking a smarter approach to restricting the supply of drugs: adapting our approach to reflect changes in criminal activity; using innovative data and technology; and taking coordinated partnership action to tackle drugs alongside other criminal activity.</p><p>The Government’s Serious and Organised Crime (SOC) Strategy focuses on disrupting the organised criminal networks which import and supply the illegal drugs in the UK (in addition to other illicit goods and services). It also aims to prevent people from becoming involved in SOC (including drug trafficking) and protect the border. As set out in the National Security Capability Review, we will publish an updated Serious and Organised Crime Strategy later this year. This will focus on coordinating the use of all available law enforcement, criminal justice, diplomatic and other tools to disrupt high-harm organised crime groups. A critical element of this is stopping those involved in SOC, including drug traffickers, from profiting from their criminal enterprises through cash seizures, asset forfeitures, money laundering prosecutions and civil or criminal recovery prosecutions.</p><p>The Government’s Serious Violence Strategy was published in April 2018 and outlines an ambitious programme involving 61 commitments and actions. The actions set out in the Strategy tackles a range of issues, such as county lines distribution networks, which exploit vulnerable young people and adults in order to move and sell drugs across the country, and the misuse of drugs. The Serious Violence Strategy is not focused on law enforcement alone. It is also dependent on partnerships across a number of sectors, such as education, health, social services, housing, youth services, victim services and others. This approach establishes a new balance between prevention and rigorous law enforcement activity, shifting towards steering young people away from crime in the first place and tackling the root causes.</p>
