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>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

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>

The review will consider how schools use exclusion and how this affects all pupils, but in particular why some groups of children are more likely to be excluded from school. This includes pupils from certain ethnic groups; pupils who are eligible for free school meals, or have been eligible for free school meals in the last six years; pupils with special educational needs; looked after children; and children in need.</p><p> </p><p>The terms of reference for the exclusions review is attached.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Exclusions can only be issued for disciplinary reasons. It is unlawful to exclude for a non-disciplinary reason. For example, it would be unlawful to exclude a pupil simply because they have additional needs or a disability that the school feels it is unable to meet.</p><p> </p><p>The annual data on exclusions includes the numbers of children excluded for disciplinary reasons by type of special educational need, including those with social, emotional and mental health difficulties. The data is available at: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/permanent-and-fixed-period-exclusions-in-england-2015-to-2016" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/permanent-and-fixed-period-exclusions-in-england-2015-to-2016</a>.</p><p> </p><p>The exclusions review will explore exclusions practice and implications for pupil groups disproportionately represented in the national statistics. The review considers how schools use exclusion and how this impacts on all pupils. In particular, it will consider why some groups of children are more likely to be excluded from school. It will also seek to identify best practice which can be shared across the system.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The £15 million Fair Chance Fund (FCF) was an innovative three year programme designed to improve accommodation, education and employment outcomes for homeless young people aged 18 - 24, who did not have priority need under the homelessness legislation but had a range of support needs which presented barriers to securing and sustaining, accommodation and getting on in life.</p><p>Many of the participants had multiple needs, often resulting in on-going problems and issues. This included a history of family and relationship breakdown, alongside other vulnerabilities. The causes of homelessness can be multiple and complex. Where family and/or relationship breakdown is present, it is often just one part of the wider picture. That is why the FCF key workers in all 7 areas worked intensely with the young people by offering tailored support to meet their needs.</p><p>Two interim evaluations of the FCF were published last year [<a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/fair-chance-fund-evaluation-interim-reports" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/fair-chance-fund-evaluation-interim-reports</a>], and the final evaluation will be published later this year. Findings are being used to inform future policy work on supporting young people experiencing homelessness and on the use of social investment.</p>

As part of this approach, we announced an innovative new programme of support to help parents, whether they are together or separated, to reduce conflict. This is based on the most recent evidence, which tells us that children who are exposed to frequent, intense and poorly resolved conflict are at risk of experiencing poorer long term outcomes. Plans are currently underway to develop this support, and more details of this will be announced in due course.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Department for Work and Pension’s publication <em>Improving lives: Helping Workless Families,</em> presented evidence on the root causes of disadvantage and their impact on the outcomes for children. This included nine national indicators to track progress in tackling the disadvantages that affect families’ and children’s lives and replace all the former <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/social-justice-outcomes-framework" target="_blank">social justice outcomes framework</a> indicators. A copy of this framework has been attached.</p><p> </p><p>One of the new indicators measures parental conflict to reflect evidence that inter-parental relationship quality is of fundamental importance to children’s outcomes, including their mental health, wellbeing and future employment prospects. On the basis of this evidence and after consulting with academics, a new indicator has been developed. This measures quality of the inter-parental relationship among coupled and separated parents as the proportion of children in couple-parent families experiencing relationship distress. Where parents are separated, research suggests that positive involvement from both parents in the child’s life can help address the potential negative impacts of parental separation therefore as a proxy for the quality of relationship between separated parents the proportion of children in separated families who see their non-resident parents regularly is also being measured.</p><p> </p><p>The Analysis and Research Pack published alongside <em>Improving Lives</em>, presents an update of the proportion of children in couple-parent families living with parents who report relationship distress, broken down by the age of the child. The measure is not broken down by income.</p>
