unstar this property answer text <p>The amounts spent by the Serious Fraud Office (SFO) and the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) on external lawyers in each of the last four financial years is shown in the following table. Both organisations financial reporting systems are configured to provide information based on financial rather than calendar years.</p><table><tbody><tr><td colspan="3"><p><strong>Expenditure on external lawyers</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong>Year</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>CPS</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>SFO</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2010-11</p></td><td><p>£139,219,000</p></td><td><p>£4,523,561</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2011-12</p></td><td><p>£115,329,000</p></td><td><p>£4,822,253</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2012-13</p></td><td><p>£118,908,000</p></td><td><p>£5,956,633</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2013-14</p></td><td><p>£122,929,000</p></td><td><p>£19,077,467</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p>The SFO figures include the cost of external counsel, TSol and other legal fees, but do not include temporary agency staff. The SFO spend on counsel fees is published in its annual report. The increased figures for 2012-13 and 2013-14 reflect the revised treatment of VAT on some fees, repayment of some VAT which had been incorrectly recovered in earlier years, and costs relating to some very large cases and other litigation.</p><p>The SFO's requirement for additional expenditure in 2013-14 has already been set out to the House in documentation published around its Spring Supplementary Estimate, which has been scrutinised by the Justice Select Committee. The nature of the SFO's work means that it can occasionally incur significant additional legal expenses for its very largest and mostcomplex investigations and prosecutions, such as that into Libor.</p><p>The CPS figures are drawn from the CPS's core financial accounting system and they are consistent with the CPS's audited accounts. The great majority of fees for legal work paid by the CPS relates to the services of self-employed barristers and solicitors for crown court casework. The CPS also engages barristers and solicitors to undertake advocacy as agents in magistrates' courts sessions and, occasionally, to provide legal advice on discrete areas of specialist policy.</p><p> </p>

unstar this property answer text <p>The figures below give the number of lawyers employed in the Treasury Solicitor's Department (TSol), as at 31<sup>st</sup> March each year and to date for 2014.</p><table><tbody><tr><td><p><strong>Year</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Full Time Equivalent</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong> 31st May 2014</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>910</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td><p><strong> 31st March 2013</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>572</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong> 31st March 2012</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>565</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong> 31st March 2011</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>464</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong> 31st March 2010</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>451</strong></p></td></tr></tbody></table><p>The figures given are for permanent staff.</p><p>Since 2010 TSol has been engaged on a process of transferring lawyers from other departments to TSol as part of the the Shared Legal Services Programme. Sharing legal services brings considerable benefits including greater flexibility and resiliance, more efficient deployment of legal resources, more opportunities for savings and improved knowledge sharing, which in turn supports consistency of legal advice across Government.</p><p> </p>

answer
unstar this property answer text <p>The Government Legal Service (GLS) is not a department but a grouping of the legal profession within Government. Government lawyers take different forms; some are employed by the Government Legal Department (GLD), others employed by regulators and organisations at arm’s length from Government. The GLS is supported by a very small secretariat of fewer than five staff and does not systematically collect information as data is held by the lawyer’s own organisations. We are therefore unable to provide this information for the GLS. There is data for the GLD, which is the single largest ‘member’ of the GLS and the largest provider of legal services to government. As of 31 December 2016 the figures for the Government Legal Department are as follows:</p><table><tbody><tr><td><p>Number of lawyers</p></td><td><p>1,400</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Number of female lawyers</p></td><td><p>896</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Number of lawyers from ethnic minority communities *</p></td><td><p>187</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Number of female lawyers from ethnic minority communities *</p></td><td><p>132</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p>*This figure is obtained from the information that is voluntarily self-recorded by employees</p>

answer
unstar this property answer text <p>The Department provides strong support for the UK aerospace sector through the Aerospace Growth Partnership. We believe this has been successful in protecting the industry and supporting its growth. Since 2010, the UK aerospace industry has seen turnover grow from £23.7billion to £32billion; exports have increased from £18billion to £30billion; direct jobs have grown from 110,000 to 120,000, with indirect jobs up from 148,000 to 161,000; and, between 2010 and 2016, productivity growth in the sector was over five times more than in the economy as a whole. In addition we have created a more certain environment to drive increased investment in R&amp;D, through a £1.95billion Government commitment over 13 years to 2026, matched by industry, to fund new R&amp;D projects.</p><p>But we are not complacent and will continue to work with industry through the AGP to retain the UK's position as a leading aerospace nation.</p> more like this

answer
unstar this property answer text <p>The Prime Minister has a goal of increasing by 20% the number of BME students in higher education. In our new guidance to the Director of Fair Access, which we published on 11 February, we ask him to maximise the contribution of Access Agreements towards this ambition. The share of BME enrolments at UK institutions has already risen from just over 20% to 23% between 2009/10 and 2014/15. Entry rates for 18 year olds in each ethnic group increased in 2015, reaching the highest recorded values for each group. Between 2009 and 2015, the entry rate for young people in the Black ethnic group increased by over 40 percent proportionally.</p><p> </p><p>Investment by the higher education sector through Access Agreements is expected to reach £746 million in 2016/17 up from £404 million in 2009/10.</p><p> </p><p>The Government accepts that selective institutions already do much to widen participation. We also acknowledge the work that they already do. Nonetheless, we are convinced that more could and should be done. In our recent guidance to the Director of Fair Access, <a href="http://www.offa.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/11-02-2016-OFFA-Guidance.pdf" target="_blank">www.offa.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/11-02-2016-OFFA-Guidance.pdf</a> we asked him to secure more progress. Institutions must use evidence and good practice to lever better results and there needs to be more innovation in this area. As the Director of Fair has also said, ‘it should not be beyond institutions themselves to find ways of making more progress.’</p>
