star this property answer text <p>The UK is a member of the Paris Club of official creditors, and any bilateral restructuring of UK loans to other sovereigns is conducted through this group. The UK forgave most of our loans to the least developed countries through the Paris Club framework under the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank Group (WBG) Heavily Indebted Poor Countries (HIPC) initiative in the 1990s and 2000s.</p><p>The UK continues to play a leading role in discussions on debt sustainability and transparency in international fora, including on climate-resilient instruments. The UK has supported work through the Paris Club and G7 to develop “Hurricane Clauses” which can provide Caribbean sovereigns with cash-flow relief following natural disasters.</p><p>The UK also provides broader policy support to assist the least developed countries affected by climate change. The Prime Minister announced at the UN Climate Action Summit on 23rd September 2019 that the UK would be doubling its international climate finance commitment to £11.6bn over the next five years. This will include work to help vulnerable countries and communities become resilient to the damaging effects of climate change.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Treasury does not make assessments of the bank branch network. The decision to close a branch is a commercial issue for the management team of the bank. However, Government believes it is important the impact on communities must be understood, considered and mitigated where possible. That is why the Government continues to be very supportive of the Access to Banking Standard and the commitment it places on banks to minimise the impact of branch closures, including by ensuring that customers are aware of the alternative ways they can continue to access banking services. These include the Post Office, which allows 95% of business and 99% of personal banking customers to carry out their everyday banking at 11,500 Post Office branches across the UK.</p><p> </p><p>The Financial Conduct Authority undertook an analysis of branch closures as part of their Strategic Review of Retail Banking Business Models. This analysis can be found in Annex 1 of the final report.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Under the Fraud Act 2006, it is a crime to dishonestly make a false representation to make a gain, to cause loss to another or expose another to risk of loss. The Government takes fraud extremely seriously and recognises the devastating impacts that fraud can have on individuals and businesses.</p><p> </p><p>Decisions concerning how lenders assess mortgage applications, including how information from Credit Reference Agencies (CRAs) is used, are commercial decisions for banks and building societies.</p><p> </p><p>It is worth being aware that CRAs do not hold blacklists and do not tell a lender whether it should offer credit. Instead lenders use information from CRAs to come to their own commercial judgement. This means that while one lender may be unwilling to provide a mortgage due to a borrower’s credit history, that is not necessarily the case for other lenders.</p> more like this
