Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Firefighter Training (16 Jul 2018)

Nick Hurd: It is extremely important that every firefighter receives the right level of training for the very demanding work that they do. The new national framework makes a requirement for every single fire service to have a strategy, as all 45 do, and now independent inspection will help us to get a better view of what good looks like and where training is not good enough.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Firefighter Training (16 Jul 2018)

Nick Hurd: With respect to the hon. Lady, I do not think it is an issue of resources, because fire budgets have been held flat in cash terms despite a backdrop of a 50% fall in fires over the past decade. The fire system has found the flexibility in its budgets to move over a quarter of a billion pounds-worth of taxpayers’ money into research. However, it is absolutely important in this next phase...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Firefighter Training (16 Jul 2018)

Nick Hurd: The short answer is yes. My hon. Friend and I both understand the historical context to this and some of the difficulties and complexities. I am sure that the council will want to co-operate fully with the new arrangements.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Firefighter Training (16 Jul 2018)

Nick Hurd: It is the responsibility of each fire chief to ensure that their local teams are properly trained. They have the resources to do that, as I made clear in my earlier answer.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Air Weapons Review (16 Jul 2018)

Nick Hurd: Our review of air weapons regulations received about 50,000 representations. We are just finalising our consideration of those and my intention is to publish our conclusions as soon as possible after the summer recess.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Air Weapons Review (16 Jul 2018)

Nick Hurd: I assure the hon. Lady that it is not a question of respect. I know how strongly she feels about the matter, not least on behalf of the Studley family. She knows that the review was in response to a recommendation by the coroner in another case. She also knows that the issue divides opinion and that many people have strong views about it. I hope that she agrees that the most important thing...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Air Weapons Review (16 Jul 2018)

Nick Hurd: I assure my right hon. Friend that we are looking at all our options on a spectrum. We have a set of regulations on the use of airguns, but we are considering how we can strengthen them in a proportionate way that gives greater protection particularly to children and, to answer my right hon. Friend’s point, animals, which are often the victims of those guns.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Topical Questions (16 Jul 2018)

Nick Hurd: My hon. Friend and I have had many conversations, and I know how strongly he feels about the adequacy of policing in his constituency. He will be aware that a further £3 million has gone into Bedfordshire’s policing this year, so there is a conversation to be had about resources, but we need to ensure that the 2019-20 funding settlement and the next comprehensive spending review...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Topical Questions (16 Jul 2018)

Nick Hurd: The hon. Gentleman knows that the model of British policing has non-armed officers at its core, but where an operational need arises specialist armed officers should be available to be deployed. He will also know that we are investing £144 million of taxpayers’ money to upgrade that capability.

Written Answers — Home Office: Metals: Theft (16 Jul 2018)

Nick Hurd: We have no plans to legislate to ban squatting in commercial properties to prevent the theft of metals of other commodities. The police can already take action if those who squat in such premises commit crimes when entering or staying in such premises, including crimes relating to criminal damages and thefts.

Written Answers — Home Office: Metals: Theft (16 Jul 2018)

Nick Hurd: The Department does not hold this information. Statistics relating to metal theft are published annually by the Office for National Statistics, but this does not include information relating to the circumstances or specific locations of these thefts.

Written Answers — Home Office: Fracking: Protest (16 Jul 2018)

Nick Hurd: The Home Office awarded £900,000 in Special Grant funding to the Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner in 2014/15, and £1.4 million in Special Grant funding to the Lancashire Police and Crime Commissioner in 2017/18, for the costs of policing anti-fracking protests. The Home Office carefully considers requests for additional funding through Special Grant.

Written Answers — Home Office: Official Visits: USA (16 Jul 2018)

Nick Hurd: The Home Office has made no estimate of the costs to South Yorkshire Police of providing support for the President’s visit. Forces supplying officers to support major events can be recompensed on a full cost recovery basis by the hosting force through the police's established mutual aid process.

Written Answers — Home Office: Harassment: West Midlands (16 Jul 2018)

Nick Hurd: The Home Office publishes police recorded crime open data, which contains stalking and harassment offences. Trends in recorded stalking and harassment in Wolverhampton and the West Midlands can be found in Community Safety Partnership and Police Force Area level open data. The most recent recorded crime open data tables can be found in the link below:...

Written Answers — Home Office: Police: ICT (16 Jul 2018)

Nick Hurd: The Home Office has not undertaken a specific assessment of the potential for machine-learning algorithms to aid police investigations. This is an operational matter for policing. We are however, supporting policing to test how new and emerging technologies can be used across all aspects of crime and policing, including within police investigations. Most notably, through the Police...

Written Answers — Home Office: Police: Firearms (16 Jul 2018)

Nick Hurd: It is for chief officers to determine the number of armed officers in their areas, based on a thorough assessment of threat and risk. The policy in this country has long been that the police should not generally be armed. This is vital in promoting good relations with the public and the community they serve.

Written Answers — Home Office: Fire and Rescue Services and Police: Cooperation (16 Jul 2018)

Nick Hurd: The Government is working with police and fire services to implement provisions in the Policing and Crime Act 2017 that enable collaboration to go further and faster, including the new statutory duty to collaborate and enabling PCCs to take on fire and rescue governance, where a local case exists.

Written Answers — Home Office: Cheshire Constabulary: Labour Turnover (13 Jul 2018)

Nick Hurd: The Home Office collects and publishes data annually on the number of police officer leavers, as part of its ‘Police workforce, England and Wales’ statistical bulletin which can be accessed here: https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/police-workforce-e ngland-and-wales. Data on leavers cover the number of workers who left the force during the financial year and are based on...

Written Answers — Home Office: Forensic Science: Small Businesses (13 Jul 2018)

Nick Hurd: All Government departments are required to plan activities to support the cross-Government target of 33% spend with SMEs by March 2022. The Home Office has increased spend with SMEs both directly and within our supply chains since reporting began. The vast majority of contracts for the provision of forensic science in the Criminal Justice System are managed by the police. Police forces are...
