New measures to protect victims of domestic violence have been put on hold because prisons are so overcrowded, it was claimed last night.Whoops! Over in care homes, meanwhile:
The Government had planned to introduce new restraining orders for violent partners last July, yet they have still not been issued and no explanation had been given for the delay.
Now, Equality Minister Baroness Thornton has admitted they have been shelved because of “pressures on the prison population”.
Tens of thousands of migrants are working with vulnerable elderly people in care homes without undergoing full criminal record checks, The Times has learnt.Good thing it's only foreign migrants, and the system is working perfectly back...home...oh:
The Home Office paid £8million to a firm run by a man jailed for arranging a murder.
The shambolic department failed to make checks on former police officer Mark Ayres.
