star this property answer text <p>The need to pay men and women equally for the same work has been required by statute for nearly 50 years, and we expect employers in the private sector to comply with equal pay law.</p><p>The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) has a Statutory Code of Practice on Equal Pay, and provides extensive advice guidance on its website to ensure employers know what is required to comply with the law. The EHRC and the Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service (Acas) also provide guidance to help individuals understand their rights and take action if they believe that they are being discriminated against in the pay they receive.</p><p>Employees who are concerned that they may not be being paid fairly can seek authoritative and free advice from Acas, before deciding whether to bring a claim before an Employment Tribunal. Where an employer is found to have breached equal pay law, an Employment Tribunal can order it to carry out an equal pay audit.</p><p>Our requirement for all larger employers to publish their gender pay gap is helping to increase transparency of all the factors underlying the endemic differences in pay between men and women.</p>

star this property answer text <p>We have provided forces with the funding they need to tackle the changing demands they face, including those from child sexual exploitation. In 2018/19 we increased funding in the policing system by £460 million, which includes £280 million going to forces through increased council tax precept flexibility. We have prioritised child sexual abuse as a national threat, one of only six such threats that require prioritisation by forces. This will facilitate prioritisation and planning of capabilities to tackle this terrible crime.</p><p>We have begun a step change in our approach to dealing with crimes against vulnerable children and people across the country and have invested significantly in a programme of reform to help the police to respond to changing crimes. This includes significant extra investment through the Police Transformation Fund (PTF) to transform policing in response to crimes against vulnerable individuals such as child sexual abuse.</p><p>In addition, we are investing an extra £21 million over the next 18 months to improve how our law enforcement agencies reduce the volume of offending and pursue the most dangerous and prolific offenders. This includes further funding of the Regional Organised Crime Units to target online grooming of children.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) is a crime and it is child abuse. The Government is clear that we will not tolerate a practice that can cause extreme and lifelong suffering to women and girls.</p><p>Data on FGM includes a 2015 City University and Equality Now study, part funded by the Home Office, which estimated that 137,000 women and girls who had migrated to England and Wales were living with the consequences of FGM, and approximately 60,000 girls aged 0-14 were born in England and Wales to mothers who had undergone FGM. The study also provides a breakdown of FGM prevalence estimates by local authority area which is available online at <a href="http://openaccess.city.ac.uk/12382/%20" target="_blank">http://openaccess.city.ac.uk/12382/</a>.</p><p>In addition, NHS Digital publishes data on the prevalence of FGM within the NHS in England. The most recent quarterly statistics were published in September 2018. A detailed breakdown of these statistics, including by local authority and age, is available online at <a href="https://digital.nhs.uk/data-and-information/publications/statistical/female-genital-mutilation.%20" target="_blank">https://digital.nhs.uk/data-and-information/publications/statistical/female-genital-mutilation.</a></p><p> </p><p>To improve understanding of the prevalence of so-called ‘Honour Based Violence’ including FGM, we amended the police Annual Data Requirement (ADR) to allow police forces the opportunity from April 2018 to record on a voluntary basis where a crime has been committed in the context of preserving the ‘honour’ of a family or community. This new voluntary collection is also capturing police recorded offences of FGM which were initially reported to the police under the duty.</p>
