star this property answer text <p>The Treasury has not made a specific assessment of the effect of cashless shops on (a) low-income people and (b) poorer communities.</p><p> </p><p>However, last year the Government initiated a discussion on payment methods through a Call for Evidence on Cash and Digital Payments in the New Economy. This sought to gather evidence on how changing preferences for cash and digital payments impact on different sectors, regions and demographics. A wide range of evidence was collected, including on the changing levels of cash usage, and a formal summary of responses was published in May 2019.</p><p> </p><p>The response set out the Government’s commitment to supporting digital payments, whilst safeguarding access to cash for those who need it. The Government is engaging, and will continue to engage, with the regulators and industry on this important topic.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The level of pay has continually increased since 2010, with average weekly earnings increasing by 20% over this period. Regular wages are currently growing at their fastest pace in over a decade and have outstripped inflation for 11 consecutive months. We’ve just seen another above inflation increase in the National Living Wage, to £8.21, meaning a full-time worker on the NLW will be earning £690 more over the coming year.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The House of Lords Economic Affairs Committee recently made recommendations on HMRC’s powers and resourcing (House of Lords Paper 242 - <em>The Powers of HMRC: Treating Taxpayers Fairly</em>). The Government considered these points and responded on 22 January 2019. This is available from:</p><p><a href="https://www.parliament.uk/documents/lords-committees/economic-affairs/Govt%20HMRC%20Powers%20report%2022%20Jan%202019%20.pdf" target="_blank">https://www.parliament.uk/documents/lords-committees/economic-affairs/Govt%20HMRC%20Powers%20report%2022%20Jan%202019%20.pdf</a></p><p> </p><p>As detailed in the response, the Government keeps the tax system under review and notes the Committee's recommendation to update the powers review principles for the digital age. HMRC will consider options for reviewing and updating the tax administration framework, to ensure that it is effective in underpinning modern tax administration. HMRC already has dedicated teams resourced to tackle those who promote or enable tax avoidance.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Treasury is in frequent contact with firms and regulators regarding their contingency planning for EU exit. Firms that are using the EU “passport” to serve clients in the EEA recognise that further steps to legal certainty remain, and are taking the sensible step of carrying out contingency planning with respect to their operations in the EEA in order to be ready for a scenario in which the UK leaves the EU without a deal.</p><p> </p><p>The Government is also doing the necessary work to make sure that we continue to have a stable and functioning financial services regime at the point of leaving the EU in any scenario and to minimise disruption for UK households and businesses. As the Bank of England’s Financial Policy Committee set out in the Financial Stability Report in November 2018, the UK’s banking system is strong enough to continue to serve UK households and business even through a disorderly Brexit, in which there is no deal and no transition period.</p><p> </p><p>That being said, we remain committed to preserving our competitive position in financial services after the UK has left the EU. An implementation period is the most effective means of ensuring a smooth and orderly exit from the EU. That is why leaving the EU with a deal remains the Government’s top priority.</p>
