star this property answer text <p>The Chancellor has regular discussions with his Cabinet colleagues on a range of topics.</p><p> </p><p>The government is committed to helping parents into work, and recognises that childcare costs can affect their decisions to take up work or increase their hours. That is why we are spending almost £6 billion in 2019-20 on childcare.</p><p> </p><p>Universal Credit claimants are able to claim up to 85% of their childcare costs, compared to 70% under the legacy benefit system. This can be claimed up to a month before starting a job, and is worth up to £13,000 a year for a family with two children. Where claimants face difficulty in paying their costs upfront, Jobcentres will use the Flexible Support Fund, which is a non-repayable award. Budgeting advances are also available for those already in work.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The government recognizes how important an issue childcare is to families with young children. That is why the UK government will be spending almost £6 billion a year on childcare support in 2019/20 – a record amount. The Welsh government also offers childcare support, on top of that provided by the UK government through the benefits system. Spending decisions beyond 2019/20 will be a matter for the Spending Review.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government is committed to supporting parents looking after children and does so in a number of ways throughout their formative years.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p>For instance, every year the Government spends more than £11bn on Child Benefit to support those families raising children. There is also a comprehensive crediting system in place to support those who cannot work due to illness or if they are caring for someone, including parents looking after a child under 12. These help maintain an individual's National Insurance record and so protect their entitlement to the basic State Pension and certain other state benefits.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The main UK government agencies involved in lending to developing countries are: UK Export Finance (UKEF) and (historic loans only) the Department for International Development (DfID). Both publish details of the guarantees and loans they provide in their Annual Report and Accounts, which are published on their websites. Where UKEF provides financing for public borrowers or guarantors in developing countries, it is subject to OECD Sustainable Lending Principles.</p><p> </p><p>The UK strongly believes that transparency of loans is an important driver of debt sustainability. Given the complex international nature of sovereign debt, we continue to believe that internationally-agreed approaches are the most effective way to improve sovereign debt transparency and sustainability. We are working with our EU partners, and others, through the G20 to ensure the ongoing implementation of the G20’s agreed Operational Guidelines for Sustainable Financing for official creditors in 2017.</p> more like this
