star this property answer text <p>There has been no abolition of funding for local welfare schemes. From 2015/16 there was going to be no specific grant but we are looking again at how the funding is provided in 2015/16. The Department for Work and Pensions are carrying out a review into how the funds in 2013/14 have been used. I refer the noble Lady to the comments of my noble Friend the Lord De Mauley of 25 January 2012 during the debate on the Welfare Reform Act 2012. He said, “<em><em>Following the introduction of localised assistance, the department has already made plans to conduct a review in 2014-15 to obtain appropriate information from a representative cross-section of at least 50 local authorities, which represents one-third of the total, in order to help inform future funding levels. We have committed to using this opportunity to gather further information about the way in which local authorities have used the funding.”<br><br></em></em></p><p>I refer the noble Lord to the consultation paper on local welfare provision published by HM Government on 10 October 2014. I have placed a copy in the Library of the House.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government is not reviewing national speed limits for the other main vehicle classes (ie light goods vehicles, cars towing trailers and caravans and buses and coaches). The table below summarises the 2013 data the Department for Transport holds about speeds in free flow conditions (ie when they are not constrained by congestion) for the main vehicle types. However,</p><p>the Department is considering the responses to a consultation about changing the speed restriction on agricultural tractors and trailers from 20 mph to 25 mph.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>There are a variety of reasons why it is appropriate to change the national HGV speed limits on single and dual carriageways. One is that the low level of compliance with them is symptomatic of their being set at the wrong level compared to other limits. So on single carriageways the non-compliance level for cars is 7% and buses and coaches 26%, compared to 73% for articulated lorries.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Table</p><p> </p><p>For the main categories of vehicles the percentage breaking the main speed limits in free flow conditions in 2013 are:</p><p> </p>
