star this property answer text <p>In the Female Offender Strategy, we set out our vision to see fewer women in custody, particularly on short custodial sentences and to see more women supported in the community. The strategy launched an ambitious programme of work which will take several years to deliver. So far, we have published a new Women’s Policy Framework, Lord Farmer’s Review for Women and invested £5m to support community provision for female offenders and women at risk of offending</p><p>We are committed to monitoring progress over time and taking action to deliver the outcomes we set out to achieve. The latest published statistics show that the total female prison population increased slightly (by 1%) between March 2018 and 2019, but that female first receptions have decreased by 10% over the past year, (from 2,036 between October and December 2017 to 1,840 over the same period in 2018).</p><p>The published data setting out the current and previous female prison population can be accessed here: <a href="https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/796904/population-31-march-2019.ods" target="_blank">https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/796904/population-31-march-2019.ods</a></p>

star this property answer text <p>The Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme 2012 (the Scheme), which was approved by Parliament, sets out the time limits in which applications must be received by the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA). The CICA publishes data about the number of claims rejected for being out with the time limit in its annual reports and accounts at: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/search/transparency-and-freedom-of-information-releases?organisations%5B%5D=criminal-injuries-compensation-authority&amp;parent=criminal-injuries-compensation-authority" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/search/transparency-and-freedom-of-information-releases?organisations%5B%5D=criminal-injuries-compensation-authority&amp;parent=criminal-injuries-compensation-authority</a></p><p> </p><p>In the 2017-18 annual report and accounts, this data was presented as a proportion of all refusal reasons used. The number of cases refused for being submitted out with the time limit was 1252.</p><p> </p><p>The figures published in the annual reports and accounts show the number of times each rejection reason was used. For some applications there will have been more than one reason for rejection. This means that the total number of reasons for rejection is higher than the actual number of claims refused.</p>

This will include considering whether co-ordinated harassment by groups of people online could be more effectively dealt with by the criminal law.</p><p>The Law Commission will also look at the criminal law around the non-consensual taking and sharing of intimate images. The review will look at existing offences and identify whether there are any gaps in the scope of the protection already offered to victims, making recommendations to ensure that the criminal law provides consistent and effective protection against the creation and sharing of intimate images without consent.</p>

In the APS, the distinction between public and private sector is based on respondents’ views about the organisation for which they work. This may differ from how we would classify them for the headline measure of public sector employment. The APS also collects information regarding respondents’ sex and ethnicity.</p><p> </p><p>Table 1 contains estimates of the percentage of public sector employees broken down by sex within each region. Table 2 contains estimates of the percentage of public sector employees broken down by ethnicity within each region. Both breakdowns use APS data for April 2018 to March 2019, the latest period for which data are available.</p><p>As the data are quite extensive, copy of both tables have been placed in the House of Commons Library.</p><p><br>Yours sincerely,</p><p><br><strong>John Pullinger</strong></p>
