Victoria Atkins: The Home Office has obligations under the General Data Protection Regulation and in law generally to protect personal data.

Modern-day Slavery (9 Oct 2018)

Victoria Atkins: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairship, Ms McDonagh. Perhaps this is the new model for how we should do business in this House—we have had incisive and effective speeches in two minutes. I congratulate the hon. Member for Stoke-on-Trent Central (Gareth Snell). I thank him and all the members of the all-party parliamentary group who are here today, as well as those who are not...

Modern-day Slavery (9 Oct 2018)

Victoria Atkins: My hon. Friend knows the Government’s commitment to this issue. The new advocates will focus on UK victims because, as we have tested the ground with these schemes, we have discovered that the needs of children trafficked into the UK—from Vietnam, for example—are different from those of children trafficked within the UK and who are already UK citizens. The pilots in those...

Modern-day Slavery (9 Oct 2018)

Victoria Atkins: I will write to my hon. Friend on that. She will appreciate that the workings of the police transformation fund certainly cannot be explained in just two minutes. I will move on to the international picture. The Prime Minister launched the global call to action to end modern slavery at last year’s UN General Assembly, with more than 80 countries now endorsing that pledge. It is an...

Antisocial Behaviour: Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire (9 Oct 2018)

Member for Kingston upon Hull West and Hessle (Emma Hardy) on securing this debate about a matter that I know is of huge importance to her and her constituents—particularly those who are suffering in the way she so eloquently described. She made a wide-ranging speech, and I will try to respond to...

Antisocial Behaviour: Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire (9 Oct 2018)

Victoria Atkins: I was about to come to that, so I apologise for incorporating my answer into my speech. We want to give people on the ground the ability to use those powers as they feel is appropriate in their local community. The hon. Lady will understand that the challenges in her inner-city area are very different from those in my area of Lincolnshire, which is just down the road from her area but is very...

Antisocial Behaviour: Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire (9 Oct 2018)

Victoria Atkins: I invite the hon. Lady to speak to her PCC—she is not just entitled to do that; it is part of all our duties to hold our PCCs to account. As of March last year—the last figures I have available—her police and crime commissioner had reserves of £34.3 million. To put that in context, the reserves as a percentage of total cash funding for 2017-18 were 20%, which is 5%...

Antisocial Behaviour: Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire (9 Oct 2018)

Victoria Atkins: That is a matter for the police and crime commissioner. We brought in police and crime commissioners in 2012 precisely to give a local person the power to hold the police and chief constable to account and to spend the police budget in ways they feel are priorities for their local electorate. As I say, we are injecting more money into policing this year. The Home Secretary has very much...

Antisocial Behaviour: Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire (9 Oct 2018)
