star this property answer text <p>The number of cases listed for trial at Bradford Crown Court has remained relatively static over the last five years. However, the number of more serious cases received by Bradford Crown Court in the same period have increased. These types of cases, by the very nature of their seriousness, generally take more court time to deal with.</p><p> </p><p>In the last five years Bradford has also seen a substantial increase in the number of appeals that it receives, as Bradford Magistrates’ Court deals with all the road traffic work from across West Yorkshire and therefore any appeals that arise from those cases go through Bradford Crown Court.</p><p> </p><p>In order to reduce the delays, work is being done in liaison with partner agencies to review trial cases at an early stage and floating trials are being monitored to ensure all action is being taken to start the trial on the day. Workload and sitting days continue to be closely monitored.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>We do not hold data centrally on what proportion of prisoners released on temporary licence supply drugs into prisons.</p><p> </p><p>By providing opportunities to work, learn and build family ties, temporary release from prison helps ensure offenders do not return to crime when they leave prison. We recognise that temporary release presents a potential route by which drugs might enter a prison and this is a key consideration in how the establishment operates its release on temporary licence (ROTL) regime. All offenders released on ROTL are subject to rigorous individual risk assessment and licence conditions. Returning with drugs is both a criminal offence and a breach of the licence conditions, which can lead to suspension of ROTL and a return to closed prison conditions, in addition to any other penalty.</p><p> </p><p>Evidence shows the vast majority abide by their temporary release conditions, with the compliance rate standing at well over 99%. Non-compliance is, and will continue to be, dealt with robustly.</p><p> </p><p>To respond to the risk from drugs in prisons, we are strengthening our gate and perimeter security, drafting specialist search teams into prisons across the country and investing in physical and technical security counter measures. Alongside this, Her Majesty’s Prison and Probation Service (HMPPS) has developed a new, national Prison Drugs Strategy, published in April 2019. The Strategy outlines how HMPPS is working to restrict the supply of drugs, reduce demand through rehabilitative activities, and support prisoners to build recovery from substance misuse.</p>
