answer text <p>The Serious Fraud Office (SFO) keeps a central database of contracts it issues. All contracts issued since 2015 that permit subcontracting have contained such provisions.</p><p>The Government Legal Department (GLD), Attorney General’s Office (AGO), HM Crown Prosecution Service Inspectorate (HMCPSI) and Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) do not centrally hold this data. To calculate or estimate this would involve a manual check of contracts held and this would incur disproportionate cost.</p><p>For future exercises with an anticipated contract value above £5 million per annum, the CPS will apply the requirements of Procurement Policy Note 04/18 (published 29 November 2018). This requires departments to include ‘prompt payment’ questions in the selection of future suppliers.</p> more like this

answer text <p>In 2017-18, the number of non-convictions due to complainant retraction was 188, down from 198 the previous year. This accounted for 1.3% of all completed hate crime prosecutions. The Crown Prosecution Service is working closely with criminal justice partners to ensure the support offered to complainants and witnesses in hate crime cases is tailored to meet their individual needs.</p><p>The majority of hate crime prosecutions (75.4%) result in a guilty plea from defendants, reducing the need for complainants and witnesses to give evidence in court. However, where live evidence is required, the CPS is committed to supporting them to give their best evidence. This includes consideration of whether they would benefit from special measures such as giving evidence behind a screen or via a video link.</p> more like this
