unstar this property answer text <p>The Government is determined that insurers should treat customers fairly and firms are required to do so under the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) rules. 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

His response makes clear that whilst we are prepared to consider any proposals, until the Sheffield City Region devolution deal is fully implemented, the Government is not prepared to enter into any discussion about wider devolution arrangements in Yorkshire that would include some or all of the Sheffield City Region authorities. I am in informal discussions with the newly elected mayor for that City Region who is looking to work closely with us to unlock the benefits of devolution – first to implement the 2015 Sheffield City Region devolution agreement.</p> more like this

The White Paper proposals include a new route for skilled workers which will be open to anyone at RQF level 3 (A-Level and equivalent) and above, irrespective of where they are applying from. This route will not be capped and employers will not be required to carry out a Resident Labour Market Test for higher skilled roles.</p><p><br>The White Paper also includes, as a transitional measure, a route for temporary workers which will be open to anyone from qualifying countries, at any skill level, for up to 12 months. We do not intend to impose a cap on the number of people wishing to use this route.</p><p><br>The White Paper is the start of a new national conversation and we have launched a year-long engagement programme over 2019 to take the views of a range of stakeholders across the UK, including the health and social care sector. Informed by this engagement, we will take final decisions ahead of implementing the new system from January 2021.</p>
