Chris Grayling: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether offenders who have received a cannabis warning before 26 January 2009 would receive a penalty notice for disorder for any second cannabis possession offence committed after that date. 
Jacqui Smith: The Association of Chief Police Officers' (ACPO) revised national guidance for England and Wales for the policing of cannabis possession for personal use by adults states (paragraph 3.1.1):
If the offender has already received a Cannabis Warning on a previous occasion, then a further Warning should not be issued. The officer should escalate action. Note: Cannabis Warnings issued after 26 January 2009 must be taken into account when deciding a level of intervention, whereas those issued before this date should be considered as part of any previous offending history.
The guidance further makes clear that in deciding the appropriate level of intervention, officers retain their operational discretion and that arrest should remain the first presumption, taking into account all relevant circumstances including the presence of aggravating factors.

Mr. Drew: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what meetings she has had with the Chancellor of the Exchequer on funding for specialised services for female victims of violence.

Funding for specialised services for women victims of violence is a decision for local areas which must be determined locally based on local need and priorities.
