The plans are at an early stage. The Government has asked Sir David Higgins to produce a Plan for bringing the benefits of high speed rail to the north more quickly, as well as initial proposals for faster east-west connections – including options on route, timescales and cost, and to deliver this in the Autumn. This will start the process by which we can have a proper debate about the future of rail connectivity in the North.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Around 80 per cent of new claims are paid in full and on time. In many cases, where full payment is not made on time by the end of the first assessment period, this is as a result of unresolved issues such as: some claimants have not signed their Claimant Commitment or passed identity checks, and the others have outstanding verification issues, such as for housing and self-employed earnings. Whilst their verification is on-going, many of these claimants receive a part payment for those elements of the claim that have been resolved. Within five weeks of the payment due date, 95 per cent of claims are paid in full.</p><p>DWP continues to monitor payment timeliness and we have made changes to improve payment timeliness. For example, we have built processes into the system to make it easier and quicker for people to verify information such as their housing costs.</p><p> </p><p>Advances are available to provide financial support until the first payment and these can now be repaid over a course of 12 months and can consist of up to 100 per cent of the indicative monthly award. We have also abolished waiting days and now provide 2 weeks of housing support to claimants moving to Universal Credit from Housing Benefit.</p><p> </p><p>If a claim has been delayed due to error, DWP can also consider awarding an ex-gratia payment, as set out in the guide of Financial Redress for Maladministration, available on gov.uk, and which is attached.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The UKAD budget (income and DCMS funding) was £7.2 million in 2011/12; £7.7 million in 2012/13; £7.5 million on 2013/14; and £7.5 million in 2014/15. The 2015/16 total budget is subject to finalised accounts. Its workforce is recruited based on each individual's particular set of skills to help deliver the anti-doping programme effectively. UKAD's role as secretariat to the Pre-Rio Anti-Doping Taskforce is through an agreement with the World Anti-Doping Agency. An additional full-time member of staff has been secured to carry out the task-force work so resources will not be diverted from UK Anti-Doping’s core programmes. As the honourable member will know, shocking allegations of doping in British sport emerged over the weekend, and UKAD's role in investigating the matter. The Secretary of State for DCMS has ordered an urgent independent investigation into what action was taken when these allegations were first received and what more needs to be done to ensure that British sport remains clean. We intend to keep both houses fully informed of developments.</p>
