answer text <p>Section 3 of the Road Traffic Act 1988 creates the offence of driving a mechanically propelled vehicle on a road or other public place without due care and attention, or without reasonable consideration for other persons using the road or public place. The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) does not maintain a central record of the number of defendants charged with, or prosecuted for these offences. This information could only be obtained by examining CPS case files, which would incur disproportionate cost.</p><p>As Section 3 of the Road Traffic Act 1988 is a specified offence large numbers of careless driving offences are charged and prosecuted by the police with no involvement from the CPS. The CPS only become involved if the defendant pleads not guilty to the offence after which, CPS prosecutors take responsibility for reviewing the case and preparing the trial. Figures on the number of people prosecuted and the outcome of the prosecution of careless or inconsiderate driving offences may be obtained from the official statistics held by the Ministry of Justice.</p><p>The CPS does however maintain records of the number of offences in which a CPS prosecution commenced, including offences of careless or inconsiderate driving. The table below shows the number of these offences during each year between 2014 and 2017.</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p> </p></td><td><p><strong>2014</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2015</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2016</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2017</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong>Road Traffic Act 1988 { 3 }</strong></p></td><td><p>11,230</p></td><td><p>9,730</p></td><td><p>9,238</p></td><td><p>8,350</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p>Data Source: CPS Case Management Information System</p><p> </p><p>It should be noted that the figures relate to the number of offences and not the number of individual defendants. It is may be the case that an individual defendant is charged with more than one offence.</p>

answer text <p>The World Health Organisation (WHO) casualty statistics are the best UN data currently available. Because of the active conflict in Yemen fewer than half of health facilities are fully functional. The WHO data reflects civilian injuries and deaths reported through health facilities, therefore they represent a partial picture. The real figure is likely higher.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The Government considers all the relevant factors in setting the level of the public health grant. Over the five years of the current spending review period we are making over £16 billion of grant funding available to local authorities in England exclusively for use on improving health. The grant is only a proportion of the total spending on public health: for example, NHS England commissions national screening and immunisation programmes with a budget of £1.2 billion in 2017/18, and many other interventions occur in National Health Service primary care settings. Public Health England monitors progress against the wide-ranging set of indicators published in the Public Health Outcomes Framework (PHOF) which shows that, as a whole, for the majority of PHOF indicators the trends in England are either broadly constant or have improved in comparison with 2014.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The Government recognises the need for additional investment in mental health services and the Institute for Public Policy Research report represents a valuable contribution to the debate.</p><p> </p><p>The Government announced its long term financial settlement for the National Health Service in June. This will represent an increase of £20.5 billion in real terms by 2023/24 and the chancellor has already announced that at least a further £2 billion of this will go to fund mental health, including expanding crisis services and supporting more people with severe mental illness into employment.</p><p> </p><p>The Government has asked the NHS to develop a long term plan which will set out a vision for the health service and ensure every penny is well spent. The Government has been clear that better access to mental health services, to help achieve the Government’s commitment to parity of esteem between mental and physical health, is one of the principles which must underpin the plan. Further details will follow when the plan is published in due course.</p>
