unstar this property answer text <p>Homeless households and those owed the main homelessness duty will continue to be prioritised for social housing by means of the statutory ‘reasonable preference’ categories.</p><p>The requirement for local authorities to offer fixed-term tenancies in future is designed to ensure that landlords get the best use out of their social housing by focusing it on those who need it the most for as long as they need it. As it should increase the number of available social lettings over time, it should mean that more homeless households are able to access the social rented sector.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>The Mental Capacity Act Code of Practice states (paragraph 4.41) that “for a legal transaction (for example, making a will), a solicitor or legal practitioner must assess the client’s capacity to instruct them. They must assess whether the client has the capacity to satisfy any relevant legal test. In cases of doubt, they should get an opinion from a doctor or other professional expert<em>”.</em></p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Paragraph 4.42 goes on to state “more complex decisions are likely to need more formal assessments. A professional opinion on the person’s capacity might be necessary. But the final decision about a person’s capacity must be made by the person intending to make the decision or carry out the action on behalf of the person who lacks capacity – not the professional, who is there to advise”.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>If a general practitioner (GP) refuses, when asked, to provide this professional opinion it would be possible to seek the services of a different professional. The clinical commissioning group in question could sign-post accordingly.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Capacity assessments are not part of the general medical services contract and so no specific guidance has been provided in this respect. However, GPs must have regard to the above referred to Code of Practice.</p><p> </p>

unstar this property answer text <p>The Secretary of State for Northern Ireland and her Ministerial team regularly meet the people of Northern Ireland, and with business and civic leaders, to hear their views about a range of issues. But we are clear that this is no substitute for a fully functional power-sharing Executive in place to represent the people of Northern Ireland and to advocate for the issues that matter to them.</p><p>The Government is fully committed to ensuring that, as the UK leaves the EU, the unique interests of Northern Ireland are protected and advanced. That is why we continue to work towards the resumption of stable devolved government. The UK Government will continue to advocate for Northern Ireland’s interests and needs at the heart of government.</p><p>The Belfast Agreement, the 1998 Northern Ireland Act, and all subsequent political agreements are clear that decisions about the Civic Forum are a devolved matter for the Executive and the Assembly.</p> more like this
