star this property answer text <p>As part of its role to approve IPSA’s Estimate, in March 2016, the Speaker’s Committee approved funds for a wide-ranging improvement programme, including plans for a new IT system, IPSA Online. This took into account longstanding feedback from MPs and their staff about the need to modernise and improve IPSA’s systems and processes. In subsequent years, the Speaker’s Committee has scrutinised progress on this programme via the annual Estimate approval process, as well as other formal and informal updates.</p><p>The Speaker’s Committee had no direct input into the design of IPSA Online, but has received regular updates on the key features of the system and IPSA’s plans for engagement and training activities.</p><p>More generally, IPSA engaged with MPs and staff members throughout the development of IPSA Online through activities including surveys, meetings, usability testing and training sessions, in order to take account of their needs and preferences. IPSA is committed to ongoing liaison with MPs and their staff to gain further feedback on the new system now that it has been launched.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government recognises that the provision of high quality,impartial, information and advice in England is an important service which older people, and their relatives and carers should have access to in order to make informed choices. The Department of Health and Social Care has set out that one of the key principles that will guide thinking ahead of the Social Care Green Paper is control. This involves ensuring that individuals and families have the ability to direct the support they receive, the autonomy to lead the lives they want, and access to reliable information.</p><p>On 28 March, we announced our plans to implement the majority of the Law Commission’s recommendations to reform event fees in leasehold retirement properties. One of the key requirements of these recommendations is a statutorily backed requirement to ensure consumers have the necessary information to make an informed choice when purchasing their retirement property.( <a href="https://www.parliament.uk/business/publications/written-questions-answers-statements/written-statement/Commons/2019-03-28/HCWS1466" target="_blank">https://www.parliament.uk/business/publications/written-questions-answers-statements/written-statement/Commons/2019-03-28/HCWS1466</a>)</p><p>My Department published the revised National Planning Policy Framework in July 2018 and this specifies that local planning authorities are expected to have planning policies which identify the size, type and tenure of homes needed for different groups in the community including older people. We will shortly be publishing further guidance to help councils put these policies in place. My Department, together with Department of Health and Social Care, also grant funds new supply of supported housing (with 34,000 new units delivered since 2011) including for older vulnerable people. With our announcement last year that funding for housing costs for supported accommodation would continue to be paid through Housing Benefit, we are putting in place the right funding and oversight environment which will give confidence to investors and to the sector, to continue to develop new supply of supported housing.</p>
