Backbench Business (8 Dec 2016)

Therese Coffey: My hon. Friend is right—that is why I alluded to that point in the opening of my speech—but I want to make sure that we are clear in the assertions that are made. I do not recognise some of the statistics to which she refers. The general consensus is that the levels of poaching peaked in 2011 to 2013, but I agree that one poached elephant is one too many. I fully accept that. What...

Un International Day: Violence Against Women (8 Dec 2016)

Sarah Champion: ...) and for Lanark and Hamilton East (Angela Crawley) picked up on how victims were often the ones who had to change their lives, move house or change their name as a result of violence. Why do the victims of this crime, and this crime alone, have to suffer this perpetual assault and live in fear, possibly for the rest of their lives? We have to do something to address that. My hon. Friend...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Islamic State (7 Dec 2016)

Baroness Anelay of St Johns: The Government is committed to ensuring there is no impunity for the heinous crimes committed by Daesh, as shown by the Foreign Secretary's launching of the Global Bringing Daesh to Justice campaign. As I mentioned during the debate, the prosecution of Daesh fighters has already begun both in the UK and around the world – to date, at least 50 countries have prosecuted or arrested...

Written Answers — Home Office: Hate Crime (6 Dec 2016)

Sarah Newton: The Home Office collect and publish statistics on the number of hate crimes recorded by the police on an annual basis. In 2015/16, the most recently published data, the police recorded 62,518 hate crimes in England and Wales. The statistical bulletin, which includes data for earlier years, can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/hate-crime-england- and-wales-2015-to-2016...

Written Answers — Home Office: Police: Road Traffic Control (6 Dec 2016)

Baroness Williams of Trafford: The Home Office collects and publishes data annually on the primary function of police officers, as part of the police workforce statistics. These data include all officers whose primary function is “Road Policing”, whether they spend all of their time in this area or not. Officers with multiple responsibilities are recorded under their primary function. The data do not allow...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Recorded Offences (5 Dec 2016)

Joan Ryan: According to the Home Office data on crime in England and Wales, violence against the person and sexual offences have risen under this Government and their predecessor, while charges have fallen or broadly stayed the same, as in the case of sexual offences. In Enfield, we have seen an 11% increase in violent crime over the past year. Why should people trust the Government when public safety...

Prison Safety and Security — [Mr David Nuttall in the Chair] (1 Dec 2016)

Kate Green: ...need to look at a means of addressing that. I am afraid I am one of the people who just cannot see any objective case for our prison population having gone from about 45,000 20 years ago to more than 85,000 today. I know that crime has fallen in that period—I readily accept that—and some of that may be attributable in part to the use of custody, but the case for that...

Backbench Business: Transgender Equality (1 Dec 2016)

Caroline Dinenage: ...the Member for Basingstoke presented her Bill today. We have not yet heard a convincing case for introducing gender identity as a protected characteristic. The Equality Act, and criminal, hate crime and employment legislation all offer protection for trans people. However, we will continue to keep an open mind, listen to testimony and monitor evidence to find ways to improve the lives of...

Scottish Parliament: Ending Violence Against Women and Girls (1 Dec 2016)

Margaret Mitchell: ...Ban Ki-moon stated at the launch of the UN campaign, globally, one woman in every three will be sexually or physically abused in her lifetime. It is, indeed, sobering to hear that the UN office on drugs and crime estimates that of all the women who were the victims of homicide globally in 2012, almost half of them were killed by intimate partners or family members, compared with less than...

Policing and Crime Bill - Report (30 Nov 2016)

Lord Rosser: My Lords, I do not wish to repeat all that has been said, but I would like to raise one or two points. The first refers to the statistics on the use of Section 136 of the Mental Health Act in 2015 and 2016 to which the noble Baroness, Lady Walmsley, has already referred. They show some surprising discrepancies between police force areas on Section 136 cases. For example, Hertfordshire and...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Reoffending Strategy (29 Nov 2016)

Doug Beattie: I thank the Minister for her answers so far. I will expand on the issue of crime. As you know, the Northern Ireland crime survey is showing a decrease in crime, yet the PSNI crime statistics are showing an increase in crime. Can you give us a view on that and where resources would go to?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — The Executive Office: National Holocaust Memorial Day (29 Nov 2016)

Arlene Foster: As I indicated, recorded hate crime has not risen as it has, unfortunately, in England and Wales recently, but it is an incomplete metric of how much hate crime is occurring. For example, an increase in confidence to report hate crime and awareness of how to report it will lead to an increase in reported crime even though there has not been an increase; there has just been increased...

Written Answers — Home Office: Theft: Metals (28 Nov 2016)

Sarah Newton: The Government is not providing funding specifically to police forces to tackle metal theft. We provide funding for individual police budgets and Police and Crime Commissioners determine according to local priorities how this funding is allocated to tackle crime. However, the Government did provide additional funding of 6 million in total to the National Metal Theft Taskforce between...

Awards for Valour (Protection) Bill (25 Nov 2016)

Philip Davies: ...to go the opposite way from the US. Following that Supreme Court decision, new legislation was drafted in the form of the Stolen Valor Act of 2013, which, in an effort to meet the Supreme Court’s objections to the 2005 Act, made it a federal crime for an individual falsely to claim to be a recipient of any of several specified military decorations or medals with the intent of...

Health and Social Care - Motion to Take Note (24 Nov 2016)

Lord Bilimoria: ...medical professionals—which the Government has already pledged to protect—but to the tens of thousands of administrative, clerical, and support staff from overseas that the NHS and social care fundamentally rely on for delivery of the service”. If you look at the statistics it is in every area: in medicine, 14% are from the EEA and 20% from the rest of the world; in...

Reducing Health Inequality (24 Nov 2016)

Alex Cunningham: ...of self-harm hospital stays is 225 worse than the average for England and the rate of smoking-related deaths is 320 worse. Sadly, the positon in the north-east region is similar and there are some startling statistics, many of them related to alcohol. Some 57% of people living in the north-east, or about 1.2 million individuals aged 18 or over, have suffered at least once due to the...

Public Bill Committee: Technical and Further Education Bill: The Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education (24 Nov 2016)

On the difficulties on the streets, an interesting statistic featured in The Guardian some years ago: when unemployment rose to 3 million in the early 1980s, street disorder and street crime took off like a rocket. It is not surprising. All those young men whose energy would have been absorbed putting wheels on cars or doing whatever they would have been doing were on the streets, with...

Written Answers — Home Office: Police (24 Nov 2016)

Baroness Williams of Trafford: The Home Office publishes data on the police workforce, broken down by worker type and police force, as part of the ‘Police Workforce, England and Wales’ series of statistical bulletins. The attached tables, which are too large to include in the answer contain data on the number of full time equivalent police officers and police staff in each force as at 31 March in each year...

Public Bill Committee: Criminal Finances Bill: National Crime Agency: Report on staff training (22 Nov 2016)

Ben Wallace: The Government recognise the importance of ensuring that investigation and prosecution agencies have sufficient expertise and resources to carry out their functions under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002. Section 3 of the Act places a statutory duty on the National Crime Agency to provide a system for the accreditation of financial investigators who use the powers under POCA. This is done...
