star this property answer text <p>Section 51 of the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994 creates two offences:</p><p>S.51(1) creates an offence directed at acts against a person who assists in an investigation of an offence or who is a witness or potential witness or juror or potential juror whilst an investigation or trial is in progress</p><p>S.51(2) creates an offence directed at acts against a person who assisted in an investigation of an offence or who was a witness or juror after an investigation or trial has been concluded.</p><p>The records held by the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) identify the number of offences in which a prosecution commenced and reached a first hearing in the magistrates’ courts, rather than the number of defendants prosecuted. A single defendant may be prosecuted for multiple offences.</p><p>The number of offences charged under s.51(1) and s.51(2) are as follows:</p><br /><table><tbody><tr><td><p><br></p></td><td><p><br></p></td><td><p>2010-2011</p></td><td><p>2011-2012</p></td><td><p>2012-2013</p></td><td><p>2013-2014</p></td><td><p>2014-2015</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994 51(1)</p></td><td><p>Intimidate a witness / juror</p></td><td><p>3,275</p></td><td><p>2,630</p></td><td><p>2,148</p></td><td><p>2,066</p></td><td><p>2,202</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994 51(2)</p></td><td><p>Do an act which harmed a witness / juror</p></td><td><p>102</p></td><td><p>166</p></td><td><p>99</p></td><td><p>72</p></td><td><p>109</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994 51(2)</p></td><td><p>Threaten a witness / juror</p></td><td><p>240</p></td><td><p>172</p></td><td><p>118</p></td><td><p>122</p></td><td><p>129</p></td></tr></tbody></table><br /><p>The proportion of CPS cases that result in a guilty plea has increased from 67.2% in 10/11 to 74.5% in 14/15 which means that there are fewer cases that are likely to be subject to the sorts of acts covered by s.51(1) during the course of the prosecution.</p><p>Also, s.51(1) covers intimidation of juror or potential jurors. The number of crown court trials have also been reducing over the period in question by 9.5%, again resulting in fewer cases where S.51(1) offences are likely to apply.</p>

Cabinet Office is not in a position to commit longer-term funding to support the core-running costs of advice services. However, the fund has supported organisations to transition to more collaborative working. We will also be working with the Big Lottery Fund to ensure that learning is identified and shared across the advice services sector.

star this property answer text <p>DWP officials have been working with the Ministry of Justice to assess the potential impact of the proposed changes to personal injury legislation on the level of recoupment of social security benefits paid by the compensator to DWP. The early analysis indicates that the vast majority of personal injury victims who claim compensation for whiplash do not claim DWP benefits which are recoverable under the Social Security (Recovery of Benefits) Act 1997. Therefore, if this trend continues, the potential changes to the personal injury legislation will have a minimal impact on the level of recoupment of social security benefits. DWP officials will continue to work with the Ministry of Justice as the proposed changes to personal injury legislation are developed and progressed.</p> more like this

As of 10 December 2015 a total of 80 courts closed under the Court Estate Reform Programme have been sold attracting disposal receipts of £49.6m.</p><br /><p>The disposal of surplus property assets is dependent on a number of factors, such as the market, potential future use, location and the fact that some are occupied in part by the police and local authorities which also make disposal difficult. Nine of the closed court buildings which have not been disposed of are either under offer or on the market. Of those which have not yet been brought to the market, two court buildings have shared locations with the police, which means the future of the building is tied in with the Police Station, one has a site contamination issue and the other three were closed only within the last seven months. We are working on bringing all of them to the market as soon as possible.</p><br /><p>There are temporary costs associated with making sure unused buildings are kept secure, protecting the fabric of the building and property rates payable to local councils. In addition, decommissioning the buildings to make them ready for sale results in some costs which cannot be disaggregated from the overall running costs. However, these are significantly lower than the costs of running the courts when open, which will have included estates costs, staffing costs and the cost of the judiciary.</p><br /><p><strong>Table: Monthly cost of each court building which has been closed but not disposed of since May 2010 as at 10 December 2015</strong></p><br /><table><thead><tr><td><p><strong>Court building</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Average monthly cost<sup>1</sup></strong></p></td></tr></thead><tbody><tr><td><p>Abergavenny Magistrates’ Court<sup>4</sup></p></td><td><p>Not available</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Alton Magistrates’ Court<sup>2</sup></p></td><td><p>£9,828</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Bracknell Magistrates’ Court</p></td><td><p>£5,319</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Cirencester Magistrates’ Court</p></td><td><p>£1,472</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Coleford Magistrates’ Court</p></td><td><p>£1,561</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Keighley Magistrates’ Court (sitting at Bingley)</p></td><td><p>£2,011</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Knutsford Crown Court<sup>2</sup></p></td><td><p>£9,274</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Liverpool Magistrates’ Court<sup>5</sup></p></td><td><p>Not available</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Lyndhurst Magistrates’ Court</p></td><td><p>£1,783</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Oswestry Magistrates’ Court / County Court</p></td><td><p>£2,269</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Pontefract Magistrates’ Court</p></td><td><p>£1,957</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Stourbridge County Court<sup>6</sup></p></td><td><p>Not available</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Spalding Magistrates’ Court<sup>2</sup></p></td><td><p>£3,909</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Totnes Magistrates’ Court<sup>3</sup></p></td><td><p>£790</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Towcester Magistrates’ Court<sup>3</sup></p></td><td><p>£445</p></td></tr></tbody></table><br /><p><strong>Footnotes:</strong></p><ol><li>Monthly cost based on financial year data 2014/15 (unless otherwise stated).

They are provided for by the Prison and Young Offender Institution Rules which require adjudications to be conducted lawfully, fairly and justly, and for prisoners and young people (aged 15-17) to have a full opportunity to hear what is alleged against them and to present their case. Independent Adjudicators are District Judges or Deputy District Judges who attend prisons and Young Offender Institutions when necessary to hear adjudication cases which are deemed sufficiently serious. These cases may merit a punishment of additional days to a prisoner’s time spent in custody if the prisoner or young person is found guilty. Only Independent Adjudicators can make an award of additional days as a punishment.</p><p>A range of safeguarding measures are in place to make sure that a prisoner or young person is physically and mentally fit to face an adjudication hearing and any subsequent punishment.</p>
