star this property answer text <p /> <p>All offenders released from custody on licence are subject to six standard conditions. There are no exceptions. The standard licence conditions include requirements to keep in touch with their supervising officer, to seek permission prior to obtaining employment or moving address, and restrictions on travel outside the UK.</p><p> </p><p>It is also possible for additional conditions or restrictions to be placed upon the licence - for example, to prevent the offender in question from contacting a previous victim, or from visiting certain locations or premises. Any additional condition must be justified as being necessary for the effective management of the offender in question, as well as being proportionate to the risk the offender poses.</p><p> </p><p>The process for requesting and approving any additional conditions is the same for all offenders released on licence, so that the supervising officer may have specific regard to any offender with learning disabilities. If the supervising officer who manages the case considers that additional conditions are necessary and proportionate, they must request these of the Governing Governor of the releasing prison, or the Parole Board, whoever has responsibility for release in that case. The decision on whether to include such conditions rests with that authority.</p>

star this property answer text <p /> <p>In responding to this question we have utilised data provided by our contracted supplier of interim staff who fall into the category above. This data is only available for the last 3 years under contract. Where the interim’s contract spans financial years the spend data is reported for the year in which spend was incurred, all figures are based on total charge rate exc VAT:</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p>Year</p></td><td><p>Number of Contractors paid £220 or more, with a total contract length of more than 6 months</p></td><td><p>Spend in Financial Year from workers who have had contracts over 6 months in duration</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2011-12</p></td><td><p>242</p></td><td><p>£20,814,160</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2012-13</p></td><td><p>139</p></td><td><p>£23,792,142</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2013-14</p></td><td><p>173</p></td><td><p>£26,152,415</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p>There are currently no off-payroll staff from whom assurances about their tax status are outstanding. We have made it absolutely clear to all relevant contractors that they must meet their tax and national insurance obligations. Any senior off-payroll workers who fail to provide assurances about their tax arrangements face having their contracts terminated.</p><p>We only use temporary staff to fulfil essential roles within the Ministry of Justice; these staff provide a fast, flexible and efficient way to obtain necessary skills that are not currently available in-house.</p><p>Spend for this requirement has increased due to the demand of our priority programmes – which will deliver significant savings across the Ministry of Justice’s budget. It should be noted that since April 2010 the annual spend on interims as a whole has decreased by £10m.</p>
