star this property answer text <p>Conversion therapy is wrong and we are not willing to let it continue. That is why we are committed to bringing forward proposals to end this abhorrent practice in the UK. We recognise this is a complex issue that we need to get right. Officials in the Government Equalities Office are working with stakeholders to consider all legislative and non-legislative options and will announce further detail on the matter in due course.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The situation regarding teachers’ pay in Wales presents a unique set of circumstances, in which setting teacher pay rates is currently a reserved matter whilst meeting the costs of the award is devolved. This means that a UK Government decision to increase teacher pay has cost implications for the Welsh Government.</p><p> </p><p>I can therefore confirm that, as a result of this inconsistency in the way teacher pay awards are currently set in Wales, the Welsh Government will receive additional funding of £8.7m in 2018/19 and £14.8m in 2019/20, in line with the principles set out in the Statement of Funding Policy.</p><p> </p><p>Setting teacher pay will be fully devolved to Wales from September 2018 onwards, to pay for the 2019-20 academic year.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government recognises that widespread free access to cash remains extremely important to the day-to-day lives of many consumers and businesses in the UK. Government has been engaging and will continue to engage with the regulators and industry, including LINK, to ensure that it is maintained.</p><p> </p><p>To ensure the provision of ATMs in rural, isolated or vulnerable areas, LINK announced it will enhance its financial inclusion plan to include in the programme all ATMs that are a kilometer or further from the next other free-to-use ATM. Around 80% of the ATM network is free-to-use and 97% of all ATM transactions are conducted on free-to-use ATMs.</p><p> </p><p>The Government has made no formal assessment of the effects of banning ATM charges, but is closely monitoring developments within the UK’s ATM network, as is the Payment Systems Regulator (PSR). The Government established the PSR in 2015 with a statutory objective to ensure that the UK’s payment systems work in the interests of their users.</p><p> </p><p>The PSR have set out three requirements of LINK: that LINK must maintain the current geographical spread of ATMs; that any changes made to ATM interchange fees must be incremental to allow LINK to monitor the impact and take action if the impact is not as expected; and for a greater focus on LINK’s financial inclusion programme, to continue to fill gaps in the network.</p><p> </p><p>The PSR has committed to using its powers to act should LINK behave in a way that conflicts with its statutory objectives and recently announced it would direct LINK to fully develop its policies for meeting its commitments.</p>

We and the UK regulators are taking the necessary steps to ensure that Financial Services firms are prepared for the unlikely event of the UK leaving the EU without a deal. While there are no plans to provide financial support for UK Fintech companies in this instance, they will continue to benefit from existing government programmes, including a 10-year action plan intended to unlock over £20 billion of investment to finance growth in innovative firms that was announced at Autumn Budget in 2017.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>We concluded the last fundamental review of business rates at Budget 2016. There was no consensus on an alternative tax base from stakeholders. Following the review we have announced wide-ranging reforms and cuts worth over £10bn by 2023 to make the system fairer and reduce the burden of rates on businesses. We are working to deliver these reforms, including more frequent revaluations from 2021.</p><p> </p><p>The government is also taking action on the wider taxation of the digital economy, including working to ensure international corporate tax rules deliver fair results across different businesses. It is right that we make further progress on this issue before considering the implications for the wider tax system, including business rates, so that all businesses make a fair contribution to the public finances, and business rates continue to support the stability of local government funding.</p><p> </p> more like this
