Written Answers — Home Office: Crimes of Violence: Greater London (3 July 2015)

Mike Penning: The publication of crime statistics is the responsibility of the Office for National Statistics (ONS). Latest published figures (from Crime in England and Wales, year ending December 2014) show that according to the independent Crime Survey for England and Wales violence is 23% lower than it was in 2010. This is supported by National Health Service data on hospital admissions for assault,...

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Sentencing (2 July 2015)

Andrew Selous: Sentencing is a matter for our independent courts, taking into account all the facts of each case. Whilst crime is falling, offenders committing serious offences are more likely to go to prison and for longer. The average custodial sentence length handed down for each offence in magistrates’ courts and at the Crown Court, by gender, in England and Wales, in 2014, is available on the...

Psychoactive Substances Bill [HL] — Committee (2nd Day) (Continued) (30 June 2015)

Lord Howarth of Newport: ...of 2011 riots in London, Birmingham and Manchester. It appears that the Home Secretary was only, shall we say, equivocally supported by No. 10 in her ambition to reform police stop-and-search powers, but the police have responded and the statistics show that stop and search is now down. However, knife crime is up, as the noble Lord, Lord Paddick, told us earlier. Against that background,...

Written Answers — Department for Communities and Local Government: Families: Disadvantaged (29 June 2015)

Greg Clark: The Troubled Families initiative aims to turn families around. This means children are back in school for three consecutive terms and there has been significant reductions in youth crime and anti-social behaviour; or an adult in the family is back in work for at least three months. The first Troubled Families Programme is on track to achieve its goal to turn around the lives of 120,000...

Business of the House: Reports into Investigatory Powers (25 June 2015)

Andrew Murrison: ...another, in the security services. Of course, all of us in this place are intimately involved with the product of the security services, since all our constituents are affected by it in one way or another. I am very impressed by the National Crime Agency’s statistics on what it has done as a direct result of material that has been intercepted: the 750 kg of heroin and 2,000 kg of...

Opposition Day: Sport and the 2012 Olympics Legacy (24 June 2015)

Damian Collins: ...can we set about getting funding from other areas of Government activity? Why should not people be able to get Home Office funding for sports programmes set up to deal with antisocial behaviour and crime in the community? Why should not the Justice Department pay for some of the work of programmes such as HITZ, which is turning round the lives of young offenders? Reports reveal incredible...

Psychoactive Substances Bill [HL]: Committee (1st Day) (23 June 2015)

Lord Howarth of Newport: ...displaced demand, and people are looking for new opportunities to find the experience that they seek. MDMA, better known as ecstasy, is another controlled drug, but the control has simply failed. Statistics indicate that some 300,000 young people each week are using ecstasy. As I mentioned at Second Reading, in universities its use is widespread, as is the use of smart drugs that are...

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Deer Act 1991 (23 June 2015)

Rory Stewart: The Government is committed to tackling crimes against wildlife. The UK National Wildlife Crime Unit, which is part-funded by Defra, monitors and gathers intelligence on illegal activities, including those relating to badger persecution and poaching, which are UK wildlife crime priorities. The Unit also provides assistance to police forces when required. The number of persons proceeded...

Stone Theft (22 June 2015)

Jason McCartney: ...increase of more than 50% on the previous 12 months. That comes at a time when local council budgets are tight. It is costing tens of thousands of pounds, and as I have said, these are far from victimless crimes. I am proud that the previous coalition Government acted very quickly to tackle metal theft. The Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013, which requires dealers to hold a licence to trade and...

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: National Probation Service for England and Wales (18 June 2015)

Andrew Selous: The National Probation Service has the statutory responsibility, under the Domestic Violence Crime and Victims Act 2004 and the Code of Practice for Victims of Crime, for the Victim Contact Scheme. The Scheme provides victims of sexual and violent offences, where the offender receives a prison sentence of 12 months or more, with the right, should they so choose, to be informed of key stages...

[Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] — Safety in Prisons (17 June 2015) See 1 other result from this debate

Rachael Maskell: ...sentences, up to 17 years. Punitive incarceration, which is all that can be achieved through long periods of detention without opportunity for rehabilitation, restoration and the development of skills, worth and value, does not break the crime cycle. That is evidenced by the extremely high, although now fairly static, reoffending rates, which put the public at further risk. The previous...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Justice Bill: Further Consideration Stage (16 June 2015)

David Ford: It is interesting that, when we have been talking a lot about what sympathy we have and who has the most sympathy for older people who are the victims of crime, we are also conscious that today we might have sympathy for those who are bereaved and those who were injured by the balcony collapse in Berkeley, California. That involved a significant number of students from this island, although...

Isle of Sheppey (Prisons) (16 June 2015)

Andrew Selous: ...2011 and self-harm decreased between 2013 and 2014. Although we do not downplay the significance of each and every incident—and I wish to make clear again my commitment to reducing violence further—the statistics show that violence is a complex issue that is influenced by a number of behavioural and situational factors. There is strong evidence that an increase in the illicit...

Written Answers — Home Office: Police: Cheshire (16 June 2015)

Mike Penning: The table provided contains statistics on the number of full-time equivalent police officers employed by Cheshire Police as at 31 March each year from 1997 to 2014 and as at 30 September 2014 (the latest available figures). As HMIC has made clear, there is no simple link between officer numbers and crime levels, between numbers and the visibility of police in the community, or between numbers...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Victims of Crime Fund: Elderly Victims (15 June 2015)

David Ford: I accept that a number of older people feel vulnerable, even though the statistic is that 2% of violent crime is directed against older people, who constitute 16% of the population, but there is no doubt that there are fears of issues like domestic burglary. That is why a lot of work has been done, principally under the auspices of policing and community safety partnerships (PCSPs) across...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Parades and Protests: Public Disorder (15 June 2015)

David Ford: I cannot give Mr Muilleoir the full statistics for policing flags protests. It was certainly the case, not that long ago, that it was costing close to 1 million per month to police 10 metres at the top of Twaddell Avenue every evening. As there has been some reduction in resources, it is now running at something less than that: I believe it is in the region of a third of...

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Dangerous Dogs (12 June 2015)

George Eustice: The early warning notices brought in by the Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 came into force in October 2014 and it is too early to make an assessment of their effectiveness. However, the table attached shows the number of successful prosecutions brought under the Dangerous Dogs Act 1991 for allowing a dog to be dangerously out of control in 2014. The period for June to...

Developing World: Women — Motion to Take Note (11 June 2015)

Lord Loomba: ...face discrimination, meaning that they lack the education to be able to access economic opportunities. When they access work, it is often in the low-paid and insecure sectors. I was struck by the following statistic. If women had the same access as men to productive assets, agricultural output in 34 developing countries would rise by 4%, translating to up to 150 million fewer hungry...

Opposition Day — [1st allotted day]: Housing (10 June 2015)

Emma Reynolds: This is a serious issue and the Government need to do something about increasing the number of affordable homes. The statistics for our country and other European countries show that the level of homelessness and rough-sleeping directly correlate to the percentage and availability of affordable housing. It is not rocket science: in our country and some other countries where there is a lack of...

Psychoactive Substances Bill [HL]: Second Reading (9 June 2015)

Lord Howarth of Newport: ...of the House that, with new psychoactive substances, we are presented with a seriously dangerous situation. Noble Lords have mentioned the numbers of deaths that have been recorded; we have no statistics—we cannot obtain them—on the amount of long-term damage to mental health and on other health damages that may be caused by the use of those substances. Very frequently, we read...
