The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) does not maintain a central record of defences relied on by defendants at trial. This information could only be obtained by an examination of CPS case files, which would incur disproportionate cost.
Rape and serious sexual offences are horrific crimes, which can have a significant and profound impact on victims. The CPS is a partner in the ongoing cross-Government review of the criminal justice response to rape, and is committed to addressing any issues the review highlights openly and honestly. Together with the police, the CPS is already developing a joint action plan, which will address issues raised in the recently published HMCPSI Rape Inspection 2019 report and – in due course – findings of the cross-Government review.
The safety of passengers is a priority, and measures are already in place to protect people’s health and safety when travelling by air.?All airports are asked to follow Public Health England guidance on preventing the spread of COVID-19. Public Health England has also provided specific guidance on health and safety for flight crews. The advice for travellers is the same as for the rest of the UK population.
The Government’s “stay at home” posters are on display at all UK airports and many airports have the messaging on digital screens as well. Airports and airlines have also been provided with Public Health England leaflets to give to passengers outlining the symptoms of COVID-19, current guidance, and general public health advice.
Our approach is being kept under review as the pandemic develops.
This may mean that measures and procedures change as we control the spread of, and understand more about, the virus. Any changes to our approach will be led by advice from SAGE and the Chief Medical Officer. Protecting the health of the UK public will always come first.
The Department is monitoring closely the measures being put in place in many countries, including all European countries. We continue to work closely with international partners to consider what measures are appropriate.
Guidance is kept under constant review and regularly updated as legislation changes. On 11 May 2020, the Government updated its guidance, reflecting the Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (England) Regulations 2020 as follows:
- Leaving the house and the frequency of such visits – now, people unaffected by COVID 19, can leave home for work, where they cannot work from home; go to shops permitted to be open to get food and medicine or collect goods ordered online or on the phone; for any medical need, to donate blood, avoid injury or illness, escape risk of harm or to provide care to help a vulnerable person; and
- the restrictions on the number of outside visits for exercise – now, people can exercise or spend time outdoors as often, or for as long as they wish.
The Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (England) Regulations 2020 contain a full list of reasons people can leave their homes.
