answer text <p>As part of the Government’s response to the Lammy Review, we have set up a Race and Ethnicity Board to oversee progress on the recommendations, and the wider agenda of race disparity. The Board currently has circa 22 members and is chaired by the Ministry of Justice Director General for Policy, Communications and Analysis. Membership of the Board includes senior level representation from departmental policy groups (from Ministry of Justice and other government departments), operational bodies such as HM Prison and Probation Service, HM Courts and Tribunal Service, and the Crown Prosecution Service, and external members. It is not possible to isolate individual time spent on race disparity work, as the board members hold these positions as part of their wider work responsibilities. However, the board was set up in January 2018 and has since met on a quarterly basis. The board does not have a dedicated budget as work is resourced separately by the various organisations responsible for actions to address racial disparities.</p>

answer text <p>Recommendation 12 of the Lammy Review has been implemented. MoJ now publishes both sentencing and offence tools which break data down by demographic characteristics, whilst preserving the privacy of individuals where sample groups are small. This was first implemented in May 2018's Criminal Justice Statistics publication and will be updated annually. Latest versions of these data can be found at <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/criminal-justice-system-statistics-quarterly-december-2018" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/criminal-justice-system-statistics-quarterly-december-2018</a></p><p> </p><p>In relation to the implementation of recommendation 11 of the Lammy Review, research into current processes does not reveal evidence to indicate plea and remand decision data gaps. HMCTS standard operating processes, supported by IT case management systems applying data integrity and validation checks, satisfy the court’s duty under Part 5 of the Criminal Procedure Rules to make records. However, it is true that plea data is not available for a considerable volume of summary only non-imprisonable cases. Unfortunately, this results from a defendant failing to engage with the court process (as opposed to HMCTS failing to record the plea).</p><p> </p><p>One of the ways HMCTS is making it easier for defendants to engage with the court process is for defendants to respond online via the make a plea service. Furthermore, while most defendants arrive in the magistrates’ court on bail or in custody, remand decision data is not available for those cases arriving at court (first hearing) by way of postal requisition, summons or single justice procedure notice because, as a matter of law, these defendants are not on remand.</p>

answer text <p>The Ministry of Justice has partnered with police forces, Police and Crime Commissioners and the Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime in London to develop pilots of a Chance to Change (‘deferred prosecution’) model in London (North West Borough Command Unit), Surrey and West Yorkshire. Cumbria are no longer pursuing a pilot.</p><p> </p><p>Pilots are yet to fully commence, however, once they are operational we will share updates on progress within wider updates on tackling racial disparity work. Pilot areas have been asked to assess the effectiveness of their schemes. Results on effectiveness should include data on reoffending which will not be available until at least 12 months after any period considered, so will not be immediately available.</p><p> </p><p>The department has not made an assessment of the cost of each of the pilots.</p> more like this
