star this property answer text <p>The Government remains committed to ensuring that housing association tenants have the opportunity to own their homes at an equivalent discount to that offered to local authority tenants under the statutory Right to Buy. The Voluntary Right to Buy pilot currently underway in the Midlands is a clear demonstration of that commitment and is giving thousands of housing association tenants in the East and West Midlands the opportunity to apply to purchase their homes at Right to Buy level discounts. The pilot will be independently evaluated after completion and future policy decisions will be taken in light of that evaluation.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The information requested is shown in the table below, compiled via individual responses from establishments.</p><p> </p><p>It is worth noting that data between establishments is not directly comparable. Safeguarding referrals from the youth secure estate to Local Authorities are handled by secure estate establishment staff, as are the maintenance of supporting records. Data provided in this response is therefore the amalgamation of bespoke local records, and is not based with a single methodology. Furthermore, different local authorities have varying protocols in place. For example, in some potential referrals can be ‘triaged’ or reviewed by an on-site social worker before a formal referral is made; in other cases there may be no such arrangement in place and all cases are formally referred to the local authority. This variation in local arrangements, as well as differences in average population and throughout, most likely explains the disparity in volumes.</p><table><tbody><tr><td colspan="2"><p> </p></td><td colspan="3"><p> </p></td><td colspan="3"><p> </p></td><td colspan="3"><p> </p></td><td colspan="3"><p> </p></td><td colspan="2"><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td></tr><tr><td colspan="2"><p> </p></td><td colspan="3"><p> </p></td><td colspan="3"><p> </p></td><td colspan="3"><p> </p></td><td colspan="3"><p> </p></td><td colspan="2"><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td></tr><tr><td colspan="17"><p>2018 (calendar year) -

We draw on a wide range of sources of information in making our assessments, including reports from the UN Panel of Experts.

These assumptions are focused on a reasonable worst case scenario, rather than what we expect to happen, and have already been shared with key partners to support revision of contingency plans, where appropriate, for a potential no deal scenario on 31 October.

star this property answer text <p>The plug-in car grant (PICG) was introduced in 2011 to support the early market for ultra low emission vehicles (ULEVs). Through the PICG we have supported the purchase of over 200,000 plug-in vehicles, including around 100,000 plug-in hybrid vehicles. Last year, in light of increased demand and decreasing prices, we reviewed the PICG to focus on the cleanest vehicles. While sales of plug-in hybrids have decreased since the grant was reviewed, sales of zero emission cars are up by more than 60% in 2019 so far than for the same period in 2018. Overall, sales of all alternatively fuelled cars have increased this year, compared to the same period last year. In our Road to Zero Strategy we set out ambitions for uptake of ULEVs in the UK, and stated that consumer incentives in some form will continue to play a role beyond 2020. In addition, to accelerate the shift to zero emission cars, all zero emission models will pay no company car tax in 2020-21, 1% in 2021-22 before returning to the planned 2% rate in 2022-23 – a significant tax saving for employees and employers.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The Department estimates that on average around £3 to £4 per capita has been allocated from the public purse to cycling and walking in Central Bedfordshire in each of the last three financial years. This estimate is based on both ring-fenced funding streams (including grants from the Sustainable Transport Transition Fund, Access Fund, and Small Business Research Initiative, as well as Bikeability training in schools in Central Bedfordshire), and non-ringfenced funding streams (including the Integrated Transport Block and Maintenance Block) of which a certain percentage is spent on measures which benefit cyclists and pedestrians. Local authorities are also able to use other local funds for cycling and walking projects, making it difficult to give a more precise estimate.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>There are regular discussions between Defra and the Environment Agency (EA) on the use of UK produced steel in EA projects. The EA adheres to the Procurement Policy Note regarding 'Procuring Steel in Major Projects' dated 30 October 2015. This was issued to support the UK government's commitment to implementing measures that address any barriers preventing UK suppliers of steel from competing effectively for public sector contracts. It provides guidance on how to take account of steel throughout the procurement process and is in line with the Public Contract Regulations 2015.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>National statistics on child poverty are published annually in the “Households Before Average Income” publication. These statistics do not separate households based on their employment in the gig economy and therefore do not make an assessment of the effect of the gig economy on levels of child poverty.</p><p> </p><p>Overall, 18 percent of children are in 'before housing costs absolute poverty' and 26 percent of children are in after housing costs absolute poverty. 'Before housing cost absolute poverty' is down by 1 percentage point since 2009/10 and after housing costs absolute poverty is down by 2 percentage points since 2009/10. The number of children in 'before housing cost absolute poverty' is unchanged since 2009/10 and has fallen by 100,000 for after housing cost absolute poverty.</p><p> </p><p>These statistics can be found using the link below, in table 4.2ts, in the file “children-rends-hbai-1994-95-2017-18-tables.ods”.</p><p /><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/households-below-average-income-199495-to-201718" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/households-below-average-income-199495-to-201718</a></p><p> </p><p>Advances in technology and the rise of the gig economy have increased opportunities for people to work more flexibly. While we welcome these opportunities, they cannot be at the expense of workers’ rights. That is why the Prime Minister commissioned Matthew Taylor to undertake his review of Modern Working Practices, and why the Government is taking the decisive action set out in the Good Work Plan to address his recommendations.</p>
