star this property answer text <p>The Government is committed to ensuring continuity for the effects of the UK’s existing free trade agreements, including preferential tariff terms, as we leave the EU. To achieve this, the UK will enter into new agreements with partner countries in place of the EU free trade agreements in which we participate as a Member State, in line with WTO rules on Regional Trade Agreements. Necessary changes will be made to ensure that these preferential trading arrangements can continue to operate in a bilateral context. Tariff terms vary from treaty to treaty and we intend to replicate the effect of those already agreed with the EU, as far as possible.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Sections 28 to 30 of The Offender Management Act 2007 (the 2007 Act) enable a polygraph licence condition to be added to the release licence of certain sex offenders. Initially, the condition was available in only eight Probation Trusts, by way of a pilot of mandatory polygraph testing. In July 2013, following research by Kent University it was agreed to make the condition available nationally.</p><p> </p><p>Several criteria must be met for a sex offender to qualify for mandatory polygraph testing:</p><p> </p><ul><li>the offender must be over 18;</li><li>the offender must be subject to a period on licence, having received a custodial sentence of 12 months or more;</li><li>the offender must be on licence for a specified sexual offence as defined by part 2 of schedule 15 to the Criminal Justice Act 2003; and</li><li>the offender must be assessed as high or very high risk of serious harm and high or very high risk of reoffending.</li></ul><p> </p><p>In limited circumstances, offenders who are not assessed as high or very high risk of reoffending may be required to undertake polygraph testing by way of licence condition. For this to be approved, there must be evidence of dynamic risk factors which indicate an increase in risk such that that risk may be mitigated by polygraph testing.</p>

star this property answer text <p>It is not possible to estimate the proportion of sexual offenders serving an indeterminate sentence of imprisonment for public protection (IPP) whose suitability for parole might be enhanced if they were to take medication to manage their sex drives. This is because the impact that such medication might have varies considerably from individual to individual, having regard to their offending histories and interests, and because medication of this kind requires the offender’s consent.</p><p> </p><p>In any event, the Medication to Manage Sexual Arousal (MMSA) service is currently offered only at seven prisons. Whilst Her Majesty’s Prison and Probation Services keeps MMSA under continuous review as part of its commitment to evidence-based approaches to reducing reoffending and protecting the public, there are no plans currently to expand MMSA beyond those seven prisons.</p> more like this
