Motion text

That this House applauds the work done by staff in the National Compliance Enforcement Service (NCES) who brought in £518 million in fines, penalties and confiscation orders during 2013-14 and have continued to improve collection rates despite cuts to staff and resources; recognises the value of sharing data held on defaulters by other Government departments, such as HM Revenue and Customs, in improving collection rates; commends the joint work NCES staff do with the Police and the Crown Prosecution Service in ensuring effective and just enforcement; believes that the on-going threat of privatisation, under the auspices of the Compliance and Enforcement Service Project, should be immediately removed to ensure that this good work can continue; and calls on the Government to listen to the concerns of staff working within the NCES to make certain that this vital part of the justice service is not put in the hands of a private company who will put profit before justice.
