Scottish Parliament: Engagements (22 Sep 2016)

The First Minister: I absolutely agree that the crime of rape should be treated with the utmost seriousness and severity. Indeed, statistics show that in the overwhelming majority of rape cases—93 per cent of them—a custodial sentence is incurred. Average custodial sentences for rape and attempted rape are now 17 per cent longer than they were back in 2006-07. I think that all...

Conflict in Fragile States - Motion to Take Note (15 Sep 2016)

Lord Tunnicliffe: ...this opportunity to highlight the important work done by the House of Lords Select Committee on Sexual Violence in Conflict. Its report was published in April this year and emphasised that sexual violence in conflict is a war crime. It undermines societies’ ability to build sustainable peace; it breaks communities, destroys families and ruins lives. The report highlights that widows...

Prison Safety — [Graham Stringer in the Chair] (15 Sep 2016)

Sam Gyimah: The Queen’s Speech was seminal, as has been mentioned, in that it made reform of prisons part of social reform. That reform would give governors freedom in rehabilitation but, as the statistics that have been referred to ad nauseam show, safety and security in our prisons is also a challenge. We need a strategy that deals with both those aspects of the programme. Safety and security...

Domestic Abuse Victims in Family Law Courts (15 Sep 2016)

Jim Shannon: ...a Northern Ireland perspective, as I always do in this place. I wish that I could say that the figures for Northern Ireland are better, but unfortunately they are not. When Members hear some of the statistics I will give to illustrate the situation, they will start to understand some of the problems we have back home. This matter requires much thought and consideration. It affects far too...

Scottish Parliament: Domestic Abuse Law (15 Sep 2016)

Douglas Ross: ...help them to overcome many of the fears that they have experienced at the hands of a domestic abuser. Domestic abuse is a monstrous and—as the cabinet secretary explained in his opening remarks—multifaceted crime. It is the ultimate betrayal of trust between two people who are intimately involved, one of whom is more vulnerable than the other, and its destructive effects can...

Sale of Airguns to under-18s (14 Sep 2016)

Brandon Lewis: ...less risk and that are used in well regulated environments such as shooting clubs. As the right hon. Gentleman said, this country has some of the most robust firearms regulations in the world. The statistics show that those regulations work and are effective. The number of firearms offences recorded by the police fell by 40% between 2009-10 and 2014-15, including a 40% fall in offences...

Written Answers — Home Office: Hate Crime (14 Sep 2016)

Sarah Newton: The Government condemns all hate crimes and is committed to tackling these crimes in partnership with the communities affected. We have in place some of the strongest legislation to tackle hate crime in the world – this includes specific offences for racially and religiously aggravated activity and offences of the stirring up of hatred on the grounds of race, religion and sexual...

Backbench Business: Dangerous Driving: Penalties (13 Sep 2016)

Sam Gyimah: My hon. Friend is absolutely right. By the way, regarding her previous point about conviction figures, I will examine the statistics and write to her about them. I will not stand here and defend someone in a case where, judging from how things have been described, it does not seem that the punishment has fitted the crime. Obviously, it is not for me to consider such cases; that is for judges...

Wales Bill: Minor and Consequential Amendments (12 Sep 2016)

...a) could be conferred by provision falling within the legislative competence of the National Assembly for Wales (see section 108A of the Government of Wales Act 2006), or (b) relates to matters in respect of which functions are exercisable by the Welsh Ministers.” 41L In section 27 of that Act (power to make orders, rules and schemes), in subsection (6), for paragraph (c)...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Stalking (12 Sep 2016)

Sinead Bradley: ...My party colleague Claire Hanna and others have rightly highlighted the need to ensure that efficient, clear and accessible legislation is put in place to target the increasingly common and serious crime of stalking. Many across the House highlighted the fact that there is no legal definition, but good attempts and suggestions have been presented today for consideration. Contributions...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Stalking (12 Sep 2016)

Trevor Lunn: ...something like that that has happened. I have had the experience, so I will just say, "Well done, Brenda, and thank you for bringing the motion to the House". The motion uses words like "hidden crime", "insidious", "terrifying", "psychological harm" and "in the most serious of cases, murder". That is not an exaggeration. Those things happen. The mystery perhaps is that the PSNI —...

Written Answers — Home Office: Rural Areas: Crime (12 Sep 2016)

Baroness Williams of Trafford: The 2015 Commercial Victimisation Survey found that 24 per cent of agriculture, forestry and fishing premises had experienced at least one incident of crime (excluding online crime) a statistically significant fall of six percentage points compared with the 2013 Survey.

Bangladesh (Religious Minorities) (8 Sep 2016)

Bob Blackman: ...the Holey Artisan Bakery, which I had the opportunity of visiting in the past, highlights the seriousness of an enduring threat to the peace and security of the country. The terrorists who commit such dreadful crimes are not organised as a single worldwide hierarchical group; they are small autonomous clusters or cells, whose principal common link is a millenarian ideology. They are...

Scamming: Vulnerable Individuals (8 Sep 2016)

Carolyn Harris: ...very important issue. Scamming is an increasing problem in our communities, mostly targeting the elderly and vulnerable. The average age of a scam victim is 74. Given that the Office for National Statistics predicts that the number of elderly people in our communities will increase considerably to more than 15 million by 2030, the potential number of scamming victims is likely to increase...

In fact, David...

Written Answers — Home Office: Crime (7 Sep 2016)

Brandon Lewis: According to the independent Crime Survey for England and Wales, crime has fallen by 6% nationally in the last year and by well over a quarter since June 2010. Families, communities and property across the country are safer as a result.

Educational Performance: Boys (6 Sep 2016)

Karl McCartney: .... Most males who are not in education, employment or training are unemployed. For those men with no or low skills, that has an impact on their mental health, employment and predilection to commit crime. Those men constitute the largest group in our criminal justice system. When it comes to apprenticeships, there are now 30,000 more female apprentices, a trend and gap that has been in place...

Written Answers — Home Office: Female Genital mutilation (5 Sep 2016)

Sarah Newton: Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) is a crime and it is child abuse. We will not tolerate a practice that can cause extreme and lifelong physical and psychological suffering to women and girls. Work to tackle FGM forms an integral part of our cross-Government Violence Against Women and Girls strategy published on 8 March. The first annual statistics on the number of cases recorded by the NHS in...
