The FCA requires firms to act fairly in accordance with the best interests of customers. Customers that believe that they have been treated unfairly, such as their insurer charging fees disproportionate to the level of work involved, should make a formal complaint to their insurer.</p><p> </p><p>If they then feel that their complaint has not been dealt with satisfactorily they can refer the matter to the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS) - an independent body set up to provide arbitration in such cases. The decision of the FOS is binding on insurers up to the value of £150,000.</p> more like this

This includes over £1.3 billion for Gift Aid alone and a zero rate of VAT for the construction of buildings used for relevant charitable purposes. The zero rate means that charities do not pay tax on the construction of new buildings or services closely connected to the construction of a new building.</p><p> </p> more like this

Through the Ministry of Justice’s prison estate transformation programme we are getting the basics right by building decent prisons to improve rehabilitation and create safe and secure environments for staff and offenders. We will close prisons that cannot provide decent facilities, are expensive to operate and/or maintain; reinvesting savings into the maintenance or enhancement of the prisons in the estate.</p><p> </p><p>On 22 March 2017 the Government announced plans, subject to planning approvals, value for money and affordability, to build four modern prisons: adjacent to HM Prison Full Sutton in Yorkshire, Port Talbot in Neath and redevelop HM Prison and Young Offender Institution Rochester in Kent and HM Prison and Young Offender Institution Hindley, in Greater Manchester. Construction of a new 202 place houseblock at HMP Stocken, in Rutland is already underway. This will be ready for use from December 2018.</p><p> </p><p>No decisions have been made about prison closures other than those already announced.</p>
