star this property answer text <p /> <p /> <p>For 2013/14, the main rates of working-age benefits, statutory payments and tax credits were up-rated by one per cent in the Social Security Benefits Up-rating Order 2013. The Welfare Benefits Up-rating Act 2013 provided for the one per cent increase to apply for 2014/15 and 2015/16. Both of these were accompanied by Impact Assessments.</p><p> </p><p>As part of his ongoing public sector equality duty under the Equality Act 2010 to monitor impacts on ‘protected groups', the Secretary of State continues to monitor the impacts of the Welfare Benefits Up-rating Act 2013 in light of any changes to the underlying rate of inflation. The underlying rate of inflation for increases in 2014/15 is similar to that forecast by the Office for Budget Responsibility and used in the Impact Assessment. It is therefore likely that the impacts on affected households will be broadly similar to those detailed in the Impact Assessment.</p> more like this

The Prime Minister covered a strategy to manage several aspects of migration at a national and international level. This inevitably engaged the work of a large number of Government Departments simultaneously. Follow up details have been announced by the relevant Secretaries of State. In particular, the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions announced the detail as to how and when this Department would implement the measures to restrict access to Housing Benefit for EEA jobseekers in January 2014.</p><p> </p><p>Officials have engaged with a wide range of parties on the detail of policy and implementation since January. Although urgency procedures were used with both the Social Security Advisory Committee (SSAC) and the Local Authority Associations (LAAs), the draft proposals were informally discussed with SSAC at their 5th March meeting <a href="http://ssac.independent.gov.uk/meetings/" target="_blank">http://ssac.independent.gov.uk/meetings/</a>. There has also been constructive engagement with Local Authorities on the detail of implementation and new procedures to be adopted. The Department will continue this engagement to monitor the implications and operation of this measure, including through formal SSAC consultation, which was announced on 7 April 2014 following formal referral to them on 2 April 2014. <a href="http://ssac.independent.gov.uk/news/press-releases/07-04-14.pdf" target="_blank">http://ssac.independent.gov.uk/news/press-releases/07-04-14.pdf</a></p><p><strong> </strong></p>
