Fisheries Enforcement in England

“The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs has improved the effectiveness of enforcement: for example, by requiring larger vessels to land at designated ports to make it easier to target inspections. The low chance of prosecution and the potentially high gains, however, may encourage illegal catches and landing of fish, undermining conservation policies.

“Continuing threats to fish stocks highlight the need for effective enforcement methods, as recognised by the recent reforms to the Common Fisheries Policy agreed by European Union Ministers which seek to tighten controls in all member states.”

Community Fund: Review of grants made to the National Coalition of Anti-Deportation Campaigns

“The Community Fund’s grant to the NCADC was entirely consistent with its stated policies and was therefore not improper. However, the grant may have been less controversial if the Fund had made a wider assessment of the organisation’s activities in the first place. This would have allowed it to specify additional conditions at that stage.”

“It is unacceptable that the very people who are trying to help the sick and injured are themselves subject to violence and aggression on a daily basis. Apart from the immediate impact on the individuals concerned, the experience or threat of violence causes increased stress and sickness absence, lowers staff morale and drives individuals out of the health sector at a time of serious staff shortages. Good progress has been made through the zero tolerance zone campaign, but the NHS needs to demonstrate clear improvement across Trusts in incident follow up, staff training and partnerships with other public agencies.”

Developing Effective Services for Older People

“Older people are major users of public services and many of them find the divisions between service providers confusing. Often those most in need have to contact the largest number of agencies.

“The Government has been successful in finding new ways of developing services for older people that are joined up and avoid duplication. But there is scope to build on this. Improved co-ordination across government on older people’s issues could be addressed by the publication of an Older People strategy. At the same time, Government must ensure it continues to provide feedback to those it consults in order to maintain commitment and to avoid raising expectations that are later undermined”.
