unstar 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

unstar this property answer text <p /> <p /> <p>Carefully managing prisoners into the community on temporary licence toward the end of their sentence is a key part of efforts to rehabilitate them back into society. Release on Temporary Licence (ROTL) plays an important role in public protection by ensuring that offenders are tested in the community under strict conditions before being released. It also provides a valuable means of helping prisoners prepare for their resettlement in the community by, for example, finding work or rebuilding links with their families, which helps to reduce reoffending.</p><p> </p><p>But this should never be at the expense of public safety which remains our absolute priority.</p><p> </p><p>In March this year, the Government announced plans to improve temporary release policy and practice following reviews prompted by three very serious incidents last year. A key part of these plans is to have a new scheme of restricted ROTL for serious offenders. In those cases, there will be more stringent risk assessment procedures, with greater involvement of psychology and probation professionals and more restrictive licence conditions. In addition, and as soon as suitable equipment is available, we will be able to tag offenders on temporary release.</p><p> </p><p>In the vast majority of cases ROTL is used effectively and successfully. Prisoners fail to comply with licence conditions in less than one tenth of one per cent of cases.</p><p> </p>

unstar this property answer text <p> </p><p> </p><p>Under our Transforming Rehabilitation reforms the market will be opened up to a diverse range of new rehabilitation providers, so that we get the best out of the public, voluntary and private sectors, at the local as well as national level. Evidence from implementing our pilots and from the experience of other departments in using Payment by Results has informed the strategy, as has engagement with co-commissioning partners at a national, Police and Crime Commissioner and Local Authority level.</p><p> </p><p>We will continue to assess impacts through a robust contract management system, only paying providers in full for real reductions in reoffending. We are on course to award and mobilise the new contracts for delivering rehabilitation services by 2015.</p><p> </p><p>The Ministry of Justice does not hold data centrally on how may many repeat offenders are not receiving rehabilitation services prior to release from prison. However, as a result of our reforms, for the first time in recent history, statutory supervision and rehabilitation will be provided on release from custody to all 50,000 of those sentenced to less than twelve months in prison.</p>
