star this property answer text <p>The Government supports the use of stress tests as a tool to ensure the ongoing resilience of the European Union’s banking sector. Well capitalised banks, under a robust regulatory framework, are better able to lend to the economy, supporting jobs and growth. A full response to the European Banking Authority’s (EBA) report has been published by the Bank of England (BoE). The BoE noted that the results of the latest EBA test confirmed the results of earlier BoE stress tests that the participating UK banks would be resilient to a severe economic and market stress. The BoE will publish the results for its next annual stress tests on 5 December.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Office for Budget Responsibility is independent of Ministers and any views published are their own.</p><p>Since November 2016, the OBR has not assumed any one particular outcome to EU exit negotiations but has based its forecasts on broad-brush assumptions regarding Brexit that are consistent with a range of possible outcomes, as well as judgements about the economy following the referendum.</p><p>In its October 2018 forecast, the OBR have included a two-year transition period. After this they assume leaving the EU will reduce trade intensity which affects both imports and exports with a broadly offsetting impact on net trade. In its latest forecast, the OBR also revised down its forecast for world trade growth, contributing to a downward revision in UK export market growth in the near term. These factors contribute to the decline in exports as a share of GDP.</p><p>Going forward, the Government will continue to provide support for UK exporters through the Department for International Trade by encouraging more businesses to export, providing information, advice and practical assistance on exporting, connecting UK businesses to overseas buyers, and putting finance at the heart of our offer through UK Export Finance.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The policy to provide support for a maximum of two children in Child Tax Credit (CTC) and Universal Credit (UC) was originally announced at Summer Budget 2015 and legislated for in the Welfare Reform Act 2016. The government chose to implement the policy from April 2017 to ensure households were aware of the policy before choosing to have third or subsequent children. HMRC also provided information in leaflets to all claimants renewing their CTC claim since 2016 and a leaflet has also been included in the CTC new claim pack since the policy came into force. Since August 2016 high level messaging about the policy has been available on GOV.UK.</p> more like this
