unstar this property answer text <p>Protecting the health and safety of our prisoners and staff is our priority and I am concerned by reports of the effects of secondary inhalation of psychoactive substances in addition to the harm which prisoners do to themselves by using these drugs.</p><p>We do not have reliable data on the number of incidents where staff may have been exposed to psychoactive substances but we are working closely with Public Health England and other experts to understand the scale of the issue and to ensure our response to the threat is clinically and scientifically appropriate.</p><p>Our internal guidance on controlling the risks of secondary exposure has, though, been substantially revised following consultation and includes detailed information on how to assess and control risk on entry into cells where psychoactive substances have been used.</p><p>Of course, the best way to do address this risk is to keep drugs out of prisons. That is why we have formed a Drugs Taskforce which is working with law enforcement and health partners across government to restrict supply, reduce demand and build recovery. The Taskforce is developing a national Drug Strategy, which will provide all prisons with guidance and examples of best practice to support them in tackling drugs. We are also investing £6 million in 10 of the most challenging prisons, to provide more staff focused on effective searching, drug detection dogs, body scanners and improved perimeter defences.</p><p>Psychoactive substances have presented a particular challenge and in September 2016, we became the first prison service in the world to introduce innovative mandatory drug tests for these substances, a significant step in tackling the supply and use of them. We have made it a criminal offence to possess psychoactive substances in prison, trained more than 300 sniffer dogs specifically to detect them and ensured all prisons have clear guidance on how to detect and prevent attempts to send paper laced with psychoactive substances into prisons.</p>

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>
