star 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

star this property answer text <p>In criminal courts, victims of crime that have been called as a witness are entitled to enter a court through a different entrance from the suspect and to sit in a separate waiting area. Other witnesses may also seek special measures to use a separate entrance and waiting area. In family courts, vulnerable parties and witnesses may also request the use of a separate entrance and waiting area. Where dedicated separate entrances or waiting areas are not available, court staff will make alternative arrangements wherever possible.</p><p> </p><p>As detailed in the Victims Strategy, improving the court environment for victims is a key commitment.</p><p> </p> more like this

star 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>
