star this property answer text <p>Baroness Vere of Norbiton wrote to the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) on 13 December 2017. The DPP provided her response on 9 January 2018.</p><p> </p><p>In her response, the then DPP confirmed that the flagging definition for hate crime was agreed between the CPS and the NPCC (ACPO as it was then) in 2007 and that it is wider than the definition set out in legislation to ensure all relevant cases are captured.</p><p> </p><p>The CPS adopted the recommended definition in the Macpherson report published in 1999 as a result of the inquiry into the murder of Stephen Lawrence. The Macpherson report also recommended that ‘this definition should be universally adopted by the Police, local Government and other relevant agencies’.</p><p> </p><p>The recommendations of the Macpherson report were welcomed by the Government at the time and the current Government remains in support of this position. The CPS has worked with police to implement the recommended definition across all strands of hate crime. The CPS takes tackling hate crime seriously and recognises the need to increase public confidence to report. The flagging definition is important in achieving this aim.</p><p> </p><p>In order for a crime to be charged and prosecuted as a hate crime, the CPS uses the legal definitions contained in the Crime and Disorder Act 1998 (CDA 1998) and the Criminal Justice Act 2003 (CJA 2003). This means that not every incident that the victim or another person has perceived to be a hate crime will actually be a hate crime in law.</p><p> </p><p>In her letter, the then DPP also confirmed that the CPS legal guidance recognises the potential impact of prosecutions on Article 10 of the European Convention on Human Rights (the right to freedom of expression). The CPS must balance the rights of an individual to freedom of speech against the duty of the state to act proportionately and to protect the rights of others.</p>

star this property answer text <p>My officials have noted the contents of the Report. The Report recognises that the Decent Homes Standard has made a real difference to the lives of tenants by driving improvements to standards in social housing. Since 2010, the proportion of social homes failing to meet the Decent Homes Standard is down 7 percentage points and the proportion of private rented homes is down 10 percentage points.</p><p>Most landlords provide decent, high quality accommodation, but a minority of them are not keeping their properties in a safe condition. We have strengthened local authorities’ enforcement powers, introduced civil penalties, extended rent repayment orders, introduced banning orders and extended licensing of higher-risk houses in multiple occupation. These measures will go a long way to crack down on landlords who neglect their properties, and rogue landlords will have to improve their properties or leave the business.</p><p>The Housing Health and Safety Rating System (HHSRS) is being reviewed to assess how well it works in practice and whether it needs to be updated. The Government is also supporting the Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation) Bill which will require landlords to ensure that their properties are free from potentially serious hazards at the start of and throughout a tenancy.</p><p> </p>
