star this property answer text <p>Under the Sandhurst Treaty, signed in January 2018, the UK government committed €50 million to implement projects agreed under the terms of the Treaty. This full funding package has now been allocated, and officials are in the process of making the final funding transfers. Payments have been made directly to the French Interior Ministry and its constituent bodies, or where necessary directly to organisations responsible for security infrastructure improvements.</p><p><br>Payments have not been made directly to migrants. However, a portion of the Sandhurst funding has been utilised to support access to French domestic asylum services. £3.6 million was specifically allocated to funding the development of the Dublin and Dubs process to support transfers of eligible children to the UK, including training for those working with unaccompanied children, family tracing and targeted information campaigns.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government is very concerned about increases in knife crime and its impact on victims, families and communities. The latest statistics published by the Office for National Statistics on 25 April for the year ending December 2018 show an increase of 6 per cent in police recorded knife crime.</p><p>The action we are taking to tackle knife crime is set out in our Serious Vio-lence Strategy and includes new legislation in the Offensive Weapons Bill to introduce Knife Crime Prevention Orders, to make it an offence to possess certain offensive weapons in private, and stopping knives being sent to residential addresses after they are bought online unless the seller has arrangements with a delivery company to verify age.</p><p>We are also raising awareness among young people of the dangers of carrying a knife through our national media campaign - #knifefree – and supporting early intervention through the £22 million Early Intervention Youth Fund, which is already supporting 29 local projects, and we have also introduced the £200 million Youth Endowment Fund, which will be delivered over the next 10 years to support interventions with children and young people at risk of involvement in crime and violence, focusing on those most at risk. The charity Impetus, working in partnership with the Early Intervention Foundation and Social Investment Business, is now operating the Fund We also continue to support the police national weeks of action under Operation Sceptre.</p><p>In addition, the Chancellor of the Exchequer announced in the Spring Statement on 13 March that there will be £100 million additional funding for the police in 2019/20 to tackle serious violence, including £80m of new funding from the Treasury. The majority of the investment will largely go towards supporting police forces most affected by the violence we are seeing, but the funding will also support Violence Reduction Units, bringing together a range of agencies, including health, education, social services and others, to develop a multi-agency approach to preventing serious violence.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government funds a national network of Police Counter Terrorism Security Advisors (CTSAs) to ensure owners, operators, and local authorities, are aware of terrorist threat methodologies and steps they can take to reduce their vulnerability to terrorist attacks. This includes the provision of advice and guidance on protective security measures to planners, designers and architects at significant new builds such as the Holocaust Memorial and Learning Centre. A Metropolitan Police Service CTSA has been part of the security assessment process for the Holocaust memorial, working jointly with the other partners involved.</p><p>Security advice, as part of planning policies in England, is provided through the Government’s National Planning Policy Framework and associated Guidance. On 12 July 2017, the Chief Planning Officer wrote to all local planning authorities to reiterate the role the planning system plays in ensuring appropriate measures are in place to help prevent terrorist threats. There is also a range of further Government advice and guidance available online, including the Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure’s ‘Protecting Crowded Places: Design and Technical Issues’ guide.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Tackling serious violence, including knife crime, is a top priority for the Government. As set out in our Serious Violence Strategy, we are taking a multi-agency approach that brings together different sectors and stresses the importance of early intervention to tackle the root causes of violence.</p><p>To reinforce this approach, on 1 April, we launched a consultation on a new legal duty to underpin a public health approach to tackling serious violence. The consultation, which will close on 28 May can be found on the gov.uk website at: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/serious-violence-new-legal-duty-to-support-multi-agency-action]" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/serious-violence-new-legal-duty-to-support-multi-agency-action]</a>.</p><p>Between 1 and 4 April 2019, the Prime Minister hosted a Serious Youth Violence Summit at 10 Downing Street, with the support of the Home Secretary and other Secretaries of State to ensure a shared understanding and commitment to the multi-agency, public health approach to tackling knife crime and serious violence. A new Ministerial Taskforce, chaired by the Prime Minister, has been created to drive cross-government action. A report summarising the key discussion points can be found on the gov.uk website at: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/prime-ministers-summit-on-serious-youth-violence" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/prime-ministers-summit-on-serious-youth-violence</a>.</p><p>In addition, on 13 March the Chancellor of the Exchequer announced an additional £100 million funding for this year to tackle serious violence, which includes funding to support investment in Violence Reduction Units to support cross-sector work. The Violence Reduction Units will bring together a range of public agencies, such as the police, education, health partners, offender management, local authorities and others to tackle serious youth violence.</p>
