star this property answer text <p>The Investigatory Powers Bill provides for robust and transparent safeguards relating to the security and intelligence agencies’ use of bulk personal datasets (BPDs). This includes a new requirement for warrants to authorise the retention and examination of BPDs. The Bill provides for both class BPD warrants, covering datasets of a particular class, and specific BPD warrants, covering an individual dataset. The draft statutory Code of Practice provides further guidance on the factors that the security and intelligence agencies should consider in determining which type of warrant to apply for. These include whether the nature or the provenance of the dataset raises particularly novel or contentious issues; whether it contains a significant component of intrusive data; and whether it contains a significant component of confidential information relating to members of sensitive professions. All warrants will be subject to the ‘double-lock’ safeguard meaning that they will be subject to approval by both a Secretary of State and a Judicial Commissioner.</p>

star this property answer text <p /> <p>The Coalition Government signed the Istanbul Convention on 8 June 2012 signalling its strong commitment on tackling violence against women and girls. The UK already has some of the most robust protections in the world against violence towards women and we already comply with the majority of the articles to the Convention. <br><br>One of the key components was the criminalisation of forced marriage which has now come into force following Royal Assent of the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014. However Government Departments and the Devolved Administrations continue to rigorously examine whether we are doing everything necessary to be able to ratify the Convention. In particular, this includes considering the extent to which we first need to take extra-territorial jurisdiction in respect of offences established in accordance with the Convention.</p><p /> more like this

We have seconded a UK official to Greece, we have a long-standing secondee working in Italy and will shortly be seconding another official to the French Interior Ministry to support these efforts.</p><p>We have established a dedicated team in the Home Office Dublin Unit to lead on family reunion cases for unaccompanied children. Transfer requests under the Dublin Regulation are now generally processed within 10 days and children transferred within weeks. Over 120 children have been accepted for transfer this year from Europe.</p><p>We also continue to consult local authorities about the transfer unaccompanied refugee children from Europe to the UK, where it is in their best interests.</p>

Therefore the Home Office will retain responsibility for the running of forensic pathology, whilst the Ministry of Justice will work with other relevant government departments to take forward the coronial pathology issues raised by Professor Hutton in his report.</p><p>In addition there have been a number of important changes recommendations that have been implemented, including guidance for first attenders in respect of dealing with sudden and unexpected deaths, the establishment of a national list of paediatric and organ specific pathologists willing to engage in police cases and the commencement of a number of reviews in response to detailed recommendations on training, the Code of Practice/Performance Standards implemented by the Home Office.</p>
