Imran Hussain Labour, Bradford East

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, whether the £5 million of funding announced in the Female Offender Strategy for community provision for women will come from (a) additional resources or (b) the existing Departmental budget.

Edward Argar The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Justice

I can confirm the £5m figure announced in the Female Offender Strategy will be funded through the Ministry of Justice’s existing departmental budget and additional funding allocated to the Home Office in the Spring Budget 2017 to support victims of domestic abuse.
