star this property answer text <p>Universal Credit is more generous in terms of childcare costs with an increased level of support, from 70 per cent with legacy benefits to 85 per cent within Universal Credit.</p><p> </p><p>We recognise that the upfront cost of childcare may cause some claimants financial difficulty. Consequently, the Secretary of State announced in her speech of 11 January 2019, that where the initial month’s childcare costs may prevent a claimant from starting work, Jobcentres have been instructed to use the Flexible Support Fund where possible, to enable a smoother transition.</p><p> </p><p>The Government now provides more support than ever before to help parents with the costs of childcare, including providing 15 hours a week of free childcare in England for all 3 and 4 year olds and disadvantaged 2 year olds, and doubling free childcare available for working parents of 3 and 4 year olds to 30 hours a week.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Information on Project AIDANT (the series of multi-agency operational intensifications to tackle modern slavery and human trafficking led by the National Crime Agency) can be found in the 2018 Annual Report on Modern Slavery which can be found here: <a href="https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/749346/2018_UK_Annual_Report_on_Modern_Slavery.pdf" target="_blank">https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/749346/2018_UK_Annual_Report_on_Modern_Slavery.pdf</a></p><p>It should be noted that the number of potential victims includes victims encountered overseas during the operations who do not qualify for referral to the UK National Referral Mechanism or Duty to Notify. The data held is reported individually by police forces and law enforcement agencies and may therefore not reflect the full picture of NRM referrals as it is not possible to determine from the NRM database directly which referrals relate to AIDANT activity.</p><p>Data on the number of potential victims detained prior to identification is not held centrally.</p>
