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.

It is the practitioner's responsibility to identify any diversity issues, including a child or family’s faith, in any case and to assess any safeguarding or welfare issues. Practitioners will analyse each individual child's circumstances, taking account of relevant aspects of the Welfare Checklist in section 1 of the Children Act 1989, when assessing their needs and how these are best met.</p><p> </p><p>Each Cafcass service area has a responsibility to identify the diversity needs of groups of children living in their area who they are working with, and to take action accordingly. Cafcass’ Equality and Diversity Strategy (2013-15) explains how it shares best practice across teams and service areas, collating lessons learnt from a range of sources. Where staff attend training courses, the learning is shared with the rest of the service area and communicated to Cafcass’ group of Diversity Ambassadors. Representatives from local groups are invited to team meetings to discuss the work that they do and practitioners are encouraged to use these groups as a resource when considering casework decisions.</p>

star this property answer text <p /> <p>In March, we announced a package of measures to ensure that the public was properly protected. Absconds and escapes have reached record lows under this Government, but we take each incident seriously. As a result of a comprehensive review, we have made major changes to tighten the eligibility for open prisons. Prisoners may no longer be transferred to open conditions or allowed out on temporary release if they have previously absconded, escaped, attempted to escape, or if they have failed to return or have re-offended whilst released on temporary licence, unless there are exceptional circumstances.</p><p> </p><p>The change in policy for eligibility for open conditions was not applied retrospectively: the majority of these offenders who were already in open conditions were allowed to remain. However, any prisoners who were assessed to present an unacceptable risk in such conditions in light of their previous non-compliance were returned to closed prisons.</p><p> </p><p>Progression to open prison is never automatic. All prisoners undergo regular, mandatory assessment of their risk of escape or abscond and risk of harm to the public. Only those who are assessed as having an acceptable level of risk for conditions of lower security can be allocated to open prison.</p><p> </p><p>As at 31 March 2014, there were no prisoners held in open prisons who had absconded or escaped on more than one occasion between 1 April 2010 and 31 March 2014.</p><p> </p><p>There were 13 prisoners who, in the year ending 31 March 2014, either escaped or absconded from prison, having previously done so between 1 April 2010 and 31 March 2014.</p><p> </p><p>Data on escapes and absconds, prior to 1 April 2010 could not be obtained except at disproportionate cost due to changes in recording practice.</p><p> </p><p>As part of business as usual, open prisons return prisoners to closed conditions where they judge that they can no longer be managed safely in open conditions. Figures for this ongoing process are not included here.</p><p> </p><p>These figures have been drawn from administrative IT systems which, as with any large scale recording system, are subject to possible errors with data entry and processing.</p>

The power to vary is primarily to rectify small technical errors and not to allow for a fundamental change of mind.</p><p>The number of sentences which were varied in Crown Court trials the last five years is as follows:</p><table><tbody><tr><td colspan="6"><p><strong>Number of Crown Court sentences recorded as replaced on CREST, by offence group</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong>Offence Group</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>09/10</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>10/11</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>11/12</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>12/13</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>13/14</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Burglary</p></td><td><p>120</p></td><td><p>189</p></td><td><p>182</p></td><td><p>220</p></td><td><p>129</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Criminal damage</p></td><td><p>25</p></td><td><p>34</p></td><td><p>22</p></td><td><p>26</p></td><td><p>13</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Drug offences</p></td><td><p>304</p></td><td><p>436</p></td><td><p>495</p></td><td><p>472</p></td><td><p>407</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Fraud and forgery</p></td><td><p>199</p></td><td><p>333</p></td><td><p>312</p></td><td><p>349</p></td><td><p>228</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Indictable motoring offences</p></td><td><p>35</p></td><td><p>34</p></td><td><p>42</p></td><td><p>33</p></td><td><p>24</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Other indictable offences</p></td><td><p>344</p></td><td><p>488</p></td><td><p>604</p></td><td><p>359</p></td><td><p>294</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Robbery</p></td><td><p>125</p></td><td><p>147</p></td><td><p>164</p></td><td><p>130</p></td><td><p>97</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Sexual offences</p></td><td><p>313</p></td><td><p>243</p></td><td><p>236</p></td><td><p>284</p></td><td><p>191</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Summary Motoring Offences</p></td><td><p>9</p></td><td><p>18</p></td><td><p>7</p></td><td><p>5</p></td><td><p>2</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Summary Non-motoring Offences</p></td><td><p>52</p></td><td><p>99</p></td><td><p>104</p></td><td><p>67</p></td><td><p>99</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Theft and handling stolen goods</p></td><td><p>193</p></td><td><p>282</p></td><td><p>303</p></td><td><p>205</p></td><td><p>256</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Unknown</p></td><td><p>72</p></td><td><p>122</p></td><td><p>60</p></td><td><p>44</p></td><td><p>36</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Violence against the person</p></td><td><p>282</p></td><td><p>387</p></td><td><p>390</p></td><td><p>302</p></td><td><p>268</p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong>Total</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2,073</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2,812</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2,921</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2,496</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2,044</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong><em>Notes:</em></strong></p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td></tr><tr><td colspan="6"><p>1.

Whilst the new sentence will also be recorded it is not possible to link the two for every offence to calculate the variation. The reason for the sentence being varied is not recorded on CREST and can only be found by manually checking case files at disproportionate cost.</p>
