Written Answers — Home Office: Hate Crime: Convictions (26 Jun 2017)

Sarah Newton: The Home Office holds and publishes data on the number of hate crimes recorded by the police in England and Wales. Data on the number of these crimes that result in a conviction are not held by the Home Office. Convictions data are the responsibility of the Ministry of Justice. The most recently published data on hate crime by the Home Office is available here:...

Written Answers — Home Office: Police: Fraud (26 Jun 2017)

Nick Hurd: ...primary function of police officers. Under the functions framework there is no dedicated function for fraud. However, there is a dedicated function for officers working primarily on ‘Economic crime’, which includes officers working in financial investigation units, cheque and credit card fraud units, regional asset recovery teams, and other financial investigations. Officers...

Scottish Parliament: Policing (Edinburgh) (22 Jun 2017)

Michael Matheson: Police Scotland is committed to taking a robust approach to tackling all such forms of crime. A range of measures is being implemented in Edinburgh to tackle issues that relate to housebreaking—there is an on-going operation. Over this weekend, there will be further work in Edinburgh to address the theft of motorcycles that will bring in significant regional and national resource...

Scottish Parliament: Limitation (Childhood Abuse) (Scotland) Bill (22 Jun 2017)

John Finnie: ...of excellent organisations offer support to childhood abuse survivors, and the police and the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service are playing important roles, as we have also seen in relation to sexual crimes and crimes such as domestic violence. A proactive approach by the police gives people the confidence to come forward. Members have talked about the resources that are behind...

Scottish Parliament: Islamophobia (Schools) (14 Jun 2017)

Annie Wells: Statistics released last week showed that cases of religiously aggravated crimes have increased by 14 per cent over the past year. In Edinburgh, funding has been made available by the Scottish Government, in collaboration with the council and police, to eradicate Islamophobia at a local level through the shared vision project. Are there plans to extend such projects beyond Edinburgh to cities...

Scottish Parliament: Independent Advisory Group on Hate Crime, Prejudice and Community Cohesion (13 Jun 2017)

Angela Constance: There is absolutely no excuse for hate crime and prejudice. The Scottish Government is committed to tackling it wherever it happens, whenever it happens and whomever it happens to. An attack on one is an attack against us all, and recent events have emphasised the importance of unity in the face of those who would seek to divide us. The terrorist atrocities in Manchester and London serve to...

Scottish Parliament: Human Trafficking and Exploitation (13 Jun 2017)

Claire Baker: ...strategy. I start by thanking my colleague Jenny Marra MSP, who has done a great deal of work on human trafficking, including proposing a member’s bill. She has really helped to raise the profile of the crime, both in Parliament and among the public. She is on maternity leave at the moment, but I am confident that she would have made, had she been here today, a significant...

Scottish Parliament: Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service (6 Jun 2017)

Margaret Mitchell: ...; That change must reflect inherent inefficiencies in the prosecution system, including the prevalence of churn, which is the postponement or delay of court hearings. It wastes court time and lowers overall confidence in the criminal justice system. Statistics show that the most common cause of churn is a Crown motion to adjourn because a key witness is not present. There are various...

Scottish Parliament: Child Poverty (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (1 Jun 2017)

Elizabeth Smith: ...often tied to arbitrary income levels. Relative poverty is particularly hard to define and, of course, there are the on-going tensions—Alex Neil talked about them in his speech—between economic policy statistics and social policy, which has a much more subjective foundation. For that point alone, Alex Neil’s speech was worth listening to, because we all recognise the...

Scottish Parliament: Cyber-resilience (24 May 2017)

Claire Baker: ...politicians, we know that many high street banks are closing; the argument is made that most transactions now take place online. That is true for our businesses and organisations: millions of pounds’ worth of transactions take place online every day. Cybercrime is a threat that we are all aware of, but it is also one that we believe to be underreported. It can be prevented if the...

Scottish Parliament: Snaring (18 May 2017)

Colin Smyth: ...the point that even though snaring causes suffering to the target animals that are caught in those barbaric traps, that does not merit the term “offence”. The focus on offences was also ineffective because the review group did not have access to the numbers of snaring crimes that were recorded by the previous local police forces or even by Police Scotland, because they could...

Scottish Parliament: Forensic Examination (9 May 2017)

Michael Matheson: First, I acknowledge all those in the chamber and outside it who have raised awareness of concerns about the provision of forensic examination services to victims of sexual crime. Rape and sexual assault are the most horrendous crimes. Such crimes can rob victims of their self-esteem and dignity, and the effects last long after the original offence has been committed. The need to treat...

Scottish Parliament: Cabinet (Meetings) (3 May 2017)

...is not the case. The more substantive point to make is that although figures fluctuate, we are seeing—and have been seeing for quite some time—a long-term-trend reduction in non-sexual violent crime. There has been a 52 per cent reduction in non-sexual violent crime between 2006-07 and 2015-16. In 2015-16, which is the most recent year for which statistics are available, the...

Written Answers — Home Office: Police: Bureaucracy (27 Apr 2017)

Brandon Lewis: It is crucial that police crime recorded crime statistics are accurate and fit for purpose. HMIC’s rolling programme of crime data integrity inspections will keep the spotlight on forces to improve the accuracy of their crime recording. Where those inspections highlight areas for improvement we expect forces to take them seriously and act on them. HMIC are currently conducting a crime...

Written Answers — Home Office: Informers (27 Apr 2017)

Brandon Lewis: The use of covert human intelligence sources by police forces, and the intelligence derived from this use, plays an important role in the prevention and detection of crime, and is subject to strict authorisation controls and oversight through the Office of Surveillance Commissioners, as detailed in the Covert Human Intelligence Sources Code of Practice. Intelligence derived from covert human...

Written Answers — Home Office: Metals: Theft (27 Apr 2017)

Brandon Lewis: The Home Office does not hold the requested information centrally. The Home Office collects data on police recorded metal thefts, but it is not possible from these data to identify whether the crime was against public property or not. The Office for National Statistics (ONS) published police recorded crime data on metal theft in Focus on Property Crime: year ending March 2016. This...

Written Answers — Home Office: Domestic Violence (27 Apr 2017)

Baroness Williams of Trafford: The Home Office does not hold the information requested centrally. Information on domestic violence and abuse can be found in the Domestic Abuse in England and Wales statistical publication, which is available here: www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/crimeandjustice/ bulletins/domesticabuseinenglandandwales/yearendingmarch2016 #information-recorded-by-the-police ONS Report - Crime...

Written Answers — Home Office: Domestic Violence (26 Apr 2017)

Baroness Williams of Trafford: The Home Office first published information on police outcomes for domestic abuse-related offences in ‘Crime outcomes in England and Wales: year ending March 2016’, available here: https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/crime-outcomes-in-e ngland-and-wales-2015-to-2016. As this was the first time police forces were required to collect figures in this way it is not possible to...

Written Answers — Home Office: Crime (25 Apr 2017)

Brandon Lewis: We expect police to investigate all crimes that are reported to them. All forces will suspend crime investigations if, after initial investigation, they conclude that there are no further lines of enquiry to pursue because there is no evidence trail or witnesses. These decisions are an operational matter for forces, but investigations can be reopened at any time should further evidence come...
