unstar this property answer text <p>The Ministry of Justice holds data on the number of people prosecuted and fined for failing to provide required information to an electoral registration officer, which can be seen in the table below:</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td> </td><td>2013</td><td>2014</td></tr><tr><td>Prosecuted</td><td>111</td><td>5</td></tr><tr><td>Received a fine</td><td>45</td><td>2</td></tr><tr><td>Average fine</td><td>£242</td><td>£600</td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p> </p><p>Figures on criminal prosecutions are not available beyond 2014 because a change in legislation saw failing to register on the electoral register become a civil (rather than criminal) matter.</p><p> </p><p>For years following 2013, failing to register on the electoral register was dealt with as a standard fine, where local councils can send letters requesting the fine rather than beginning a civil case. Only if the offender refuses to pay, and the council believes it is worth pursuing, would the case be sent to county court and recorded as a ‘specified money claim’. However, centrally held information does not separately identify ‘failing to register on the electoral register’.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>I am clear that public, private and voluntary sector providers all have an important role to play in probation. In developing arrangements for the future of probation after current contracts for Community Rehabilitation Companies expire, we are reflecting carefully on the balance of public, private and voluntary sector in delivering probation services. This includes ensuring we harness the dedication and commitment of the voluntary sector to rehabilitate offenders and reduce reoffending. We will set out more detailed plans shortly.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>The Ministry of Justice does not hold data relating to whether individual cases were taken out on a vexatious basis, as there is no statutory definition for this. In addition, data relating to domestic abuse cases handled by the family courts does not identify whether the applicant has previously been a perpetrator of domestic abuse.</p><p> </p><p>However, it is unacceptable for someone to use court processes to harass or abuse a former partner. The family court has wide powers to manage such situations, including striking out an action it views as an abuse of process, and the power to prevent a person from making further applications without prior permission of the court.</p><p> </p><p>This Government is committed to transforming the response to domestic abuse, and the recently published draft Domestic Abuse Bill and consultation response set out our ambitions in this area. We want to ensure that victims have the confidence to come forward and report their experience, safe in the knowledge that the justice system and other agencies will do everything they can both to protect and support them and their children and pursue their abuser.</p>
