star this property answer text <p /> <p>Domestic abuse is the worst possible violation of the trust that those in close relationships place in one another. That is why tackling domestic violence and abuse has been one of this Government’s top priorities. We are committed to ensuring that victims of this serious crime are considered in all aspects of the criminal justice system, and supported appropriately.</p><p> </p><p>The Victims’ Code was implemented in December 2013. It sets out to criminal justice agencies the enhanced services and support they must provide to victims of the most serious crimes, including victims of domestic violence. This includes providing information on pre-trial therapy and counselling and referral to specialist organisations for support.</p><p>As part of the current pilot of adult out-of-court disposals, the Ministry of Justice has issued guidance to the three participating police forces (Staffordshire, West Yorkshire, and Leicestershire) setting out how the framework should be used for low-level offences involving domestic violence. The guidance imposes a number of restrictions on the forces and requires them to obtain the victim’s consent for the matter to be dealt with out of court.</p><p>In addition, the National Offender Management Service’s framework <em>Supporting Women offenders who have experienced domestic or sexual violence</em>, published in September 2011, is designed to provide guidance to those working with female offenders in custody and the community. The framework intends to ensure that interventions and services take place within an environment in which women who have been victims of domestic violence are able to both disclose abuse and receive support and advice in a safe, female only environment.</p><p> </p><p>In addition to these pieces of guidance, my Right Honourable Friend, the Secretary of State for the Home Department has issued the <em>Violence Against Women and Girls Action Plan</em>, which sets out the Government’s approach to tackling domestic violence and abuse, and is supported by guidance to victims, their friends, families, employers and colleagues.</p>

star this property answer text <p /> <p>A fixed-term recall is one where an offender on licence is recalled for a 28 day period before being automatically re-released. It is available only to those offenders on licence who are not assessed as presenting a high risk of harm to the public. Offenders who are assessed as presenting a high risk of harm are not eligible to receive a fixed-term recall and will be given a standard recall, under which they can remain in custody, potentially, until the end of their sentence. They will be released before the end of their sentence only if the Parole Board or Secretary of State is satisfied they no longer need to be detained to protect the public.</p><p> </p><p>The statutory provisions for fixed-term recalls were included in the Criminal Justice and Immigration Act 2008 and commenced in July 2008. The provisions were amended by the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act 2012 and commenced in December 2012. The amendments were designed to provide offender managers with additional flexibility to determine whether a fixed-term recall was the appropriate way to respond to an offender’s breach of his licence conditions, notwithstanding that he had been given a fixed-term recall on a previous occasion.</p><p> </p><p>This Government is introducing a new test, in the Criminal Justice and Courts Bill, which must be applied to determine the type of recall given to an offender and to decide whether to re-release a recalled offender. The new test will ensure that any offender who has abused a fixed-term recall previously and persistently and wilfully refused to comply with his licence conditions will not receive a further fixed-term recall. The test will guide offender managers, so that all relevant considerations are taken into account before a decision is taken on the type of recall appropriate to deal with the breach of licence conditions. It will also ensure that a fixed-term recall is given only where we can be satisfied that the offender can be effectively managed when released after 28 days.</p><p> </p><p>The proportion of all recalls to prison that were fixed term given in the calendar years from 2008 is as follows:</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p>Calendar year</p></td><td><p>Total</p></td><td><p>Fixed Term Recall (FTR)</p></td><td><p>Proportion of Total Recalls which were FTRs</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2014 (to June)</p></td><td><p>8412</p></td><td><p>3569</p></td><td><p>42%</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2013</p></td><td><p>17330</p></td><td><p>7280</p></td><td><p>42%</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2012</p></td><td><p>16481</p></td><td><p>5124</p></td><td><p>31%</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2011</p></td><td><p>16227</p></td><td><p>4532</p></td><td><p>28%</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2010</p></td><td><p>15479<sup>1</sup></p></td><td><p>4293<sup>1</sup></p></td><td><p>28%</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2009</p></td><td><p>14,719<sup>1</sup></p></td><td><p>3,979<sup>1</sup></p></td><td><p>27%</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2008<sup>2</sup></p></td><td><p>13,554<sup>1</sup></p></td><td><p>1,722<sup>1</sup></p></td><td><p>13%</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p><sup>1</sup> denotes data that has not been published.

star this property answer text <p /> <p>As set out in my answer on 17 December 2014 (HL3532) I would expect the development of all government policies including criminal offences to include appropriate consideration of the potential impact on areas such as freedom of speech. All new legislation requires a certificate of compliance with human rights or an explanation as to why it does not. The decision to review criminal offences after they are commenced is a decision for individual departments and, where appropriate, for collective Government agreement.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p>The annual statistical bulletin on New Criminal Offences Statistics in England and Wales collates and presents statistics on the number of criminal offences created by government departments. This covers the period 1 June 2009 up until 31 May 2014. 1073 offences have been created during this period. The latest edition of the bulletin was published on 11 December 2014. It can be found at: https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/new-criminal-offences-statistics-in-england-and-wales-may-2014</p><p> </p><p>Statistics are not available for the number of criminal offences created during the period 1 January 2000 to 31 May 2009.</p>
