star this property answer text <p>In 2013, the Prime Minister secured the first ever cut to the seven-year EU Budget Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF). As a result, according to the Office for Budget Responsibility’s (OBR’s) latest forecast, UK net contributions to the EU Budget going forward will, on average, be lower per year than in 2013/14 – the final year of the last seven-year deal secured by the previous Government – not higher. The Government supports the objectives of the European Structural and Investment Funds. These programmes are now more strongly focused on results following the implementation of a rigorous performance framework sought by the UK and other net payers during MFF negotiations. The Government is committed to continue to ensure maximum restraint and maximum value for money when it comes to EU expenditure.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The security of the UK’s energy supply is an important factor in the national security of the country and featured prominently in the National Security Strategy and Strategic Defence and Security Review, published last year. The government also produces an annual assessment of the security of the UK’s energy supply which considers the availability of electricity and gas to meet consumer demand in Great Britain over the next four years. The strategically important contributions of both domestic energy production and diversity of supply are included in this analysis.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government is committed to ensuring the UK has a secure and resilient energy system while meeting our climate change obligations and keeping bills as low as possible. Small Modular Reactors (SMRs) and shale gas have the potential to play a part in achieving this.</p><p>The Government has committed to investing at least £250 million over the next five years in nuclear research and development, which will include support for SMRs. In March 2016, the Government launched the first phase of a competition to identify the best value SMR for the UK, as well as allocating up to £30m over the next 5 years for an SMR-enabling advanced manufacturing programme to develop skills capacity.</p><p>The Government supports the exploration of our shale gas resources in a safe and sustainable way. The shale gas resources beneath Britain have the potential to bolster our energy security and lead to jobs and economic growth. UK geology is promising but we make no assumptions about production levels. We need exploration to determine the potential.</p><p>The Government has been clear that shale development must be safe and environmentally sound.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Common Reporting Standard (CRS) is the global standard for the exchange of financial account information and any changes would need to be agreed internationally. Under the CRS financial institutions, including some charities, are required to obtain and report tax residence information of their account holders. The information that tax authorities will receive under the CRS, including that on distributions from charities, is a vital part of global efforts to tackle offshore tax evasion and increase tax transparency.</p><p> </p><p>Consistent implementation of the CRS by all adopting jurisdictions is important to create a level playing field and to ensure that avoidance loopholes are not created.</p><p> </p><p>Officials in HM Revenue and Customs are working closely with charity sector representatives to minimise the compliance burden.</p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this
