Waiting time is interpreted as average clearance time - time taken from appeal receipt to outcome.</p><p>2. The latest period for which data are available</p><p>The volume of appeals against decisions on PIP has built up since it was introduced as a new benefit, incrementally over time, from 2013. As the number of appeals has increased, so has the average waiting time for an appeal outcome.</p><p>Waiting times are calculated from receipt of an appeal to its final disposal. An appeal is not necessarily disposed of at its first hearing. The final disposal decision on the appeal may be reached after an earlier hearing had been adjourned (which may be directed by the judge for a variety of reasons, such as to seek further evidence), or after an earlier hearing date had been postponed (again, for a variety of reasons, often at the request of the appellant). An appeal may also have been decided at an earlier date by the First-tier Tribunal, only for the case to have gone on to the Upper Tribunal, to be returned once again to the First-tier, for its final disposal.</p><p>Waiting times can fluctuate temporarily and geographically, owing to a number of variable factors, including volumes of benefit decisions made locally, availability of medical/disability members, venue capacity and the complexity of the issue in dispute. Any disparity in waiting times is monitored and investigated locally.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government response to the Committee of Public Accounts on the Seventy-Second to the Seventy-Seventh reports from Session 2017-19 set out that the Government disagreed with the Committee’s recommendation. It went on to say that:</p><p> </p><p>“The Department supports the intent behind this recommendation and is considering the benefits of developing a coherent cross-departmental programme in due course. However, doing so would require considerable time and resource to do it justice and our focus at present is on a wide range of delivery and policy priorities which we will set out briefly here. NHS England set out a clear plan for improvements in the NHS in the Five Year Forward View for Mental Health Implementation Plan, building upon the recommendations of Future in Mind to improve children and young people’s mental health. The Department remains committed to this plan and has since made commitments to go significantly further, particularly in relation to mental health and education via Transforming Children and Young People’s Mental Health Provision: a Green Paper, jointly published with the Department for Education in December 2017, and there are a wide range of important new commitments outlined in the NHS Long Term Plan. The Department is also taking forward significant work bilaterally with several other government departments including the Ministry of Justice on the independent review of the Mental Health Act, the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport on social media and a cross-government strategy on suicide prevention which was published 22 January 2019.</p><p> </p><p>Both the children and young people’s mental health Green Paper and Future in Mind identified the need for cross-organisational working. As a result of Future in Mind, since 2015, each Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) area across England worked with partners in Children’s Services, the voluntary sector, providers and children, young people and parents to develop Local Transformation Plans, setting out how local agencies will work together to improve children and young people’s mental health across the full spectrum of need. Local Transformation Plans are refreshed annually and report into local governance structures including Health and Wellbeing Boards. The Government convenes regular cross-Whitehall Inter-Ministerial Groups to ensure senior focus on mental health in policies across Government.”</p><p> </p><p>The Government response is available at the following link:</p><p> </p><p><a href="http://www.parliament.uk/documents/commons-committees/public-accounts/Correspondence/2017-19/Treasury%20MInutes%20Government_Response_Web.pdf#page=9" target="_blank">www.parliament.uk/documents/commons-committees/public-accounts/Correspondence/2017-19/Treasury%20MInutes%20Government_Response_Web.pdf#page=9</a></p>

During humanitarian emergencies, violence against women and girls can increase in both frequency and severity. DFID funded ‘What Works to Prevent Violence’ research in South Sudan revealed that over 73% of girls and women experienced intimate partner violence.</p><p> </p><p>The UK is an active member of the Call to Action on Protection from Gender-based Violence in Emergencies, which brings together governments, UN agencies, international NGOs and civil society organisations to share best practice and report on progress against shared commitments on preventing and responding to GBV.
