star this property answer text <p>The Government has committed to introduce a Future Homes Standard by 2025. This means new homes will be fit for the future proofed, with low carbon heating and lower energy use through high levels of energy efficiency. We propose that new homes built to the Future Homes Standard from 2025 should have carbon dioxide emissions up to 80 per cent lower than those built to current building regulations standards.</p><p>We are currently consulting on a meaningful and achievable increase to the energy efficiency standards for new homes to be introduced through the Building Regulations in 2020, as a stepping stone to this commitment. The preferred option is to set a standard that should result in a 31 per cent reduction in CO2 emissions. The consultation is open until 7 February and we welcome further evidence.</p><p>The Future Homes Standard consultation is considering local planning authority powers in respect of energy efficiency. Our current proposals consider setting a stringent minimum standard for energy efficiency through the Building Regulations, meaning that there may no longer be any need for local planning authorities to set higher standards. At least 265 councils have set out their intentions to deliver Passivhaus standard or zero carbon homes, as well as incentivising businesses and homeowners to improve the efficiency of the existing stock.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government’s view is that providing support for a maximum of two children or qualifying young persons in Universal Credit and Child Tax Credit ensures fairness between claimants on the one hand and, on the other, those taxpayers who support themselves solely through work. Universal Credit is designed to mirror the world of work where families do not automatically see their income rise on the birth of a new child.</p><p> </p><p>This Government is committed to delivering a sustainable, long-term solution to poverty in all its forms. Tackling child poverty requires an approach that goes beyond one that focuses on income alone to one that addresses the root causes of poverty and disadvantage and improves long-term outcomes for families and children.</p><p> </p><p>We recognise that some claimants are not able to make the same choices about the number of children in their family, which is why exceptions have been put in place to protect certain groups.</p><p /> more like this
