The four ‘Life Chances’ measures introduced through the Welfare Reform and Work Act 2016, which replaced the income based targets set out in the Child Poverty Act 2010, are designed to drive action and measure progress in the areas that we know can make the biggest difference - parental worklessness and children’s educational achievement.</p><p> </p><p>The measures are based on official statistics produced by the Office for National Statistics on the proportion of children in workless households and the proportion of children in long-term workless households; and on Department for Education statistics on the educational attainment at Key Stage 4 of all pupils, and of disadvantaged pupils.</p><p> </p><p>Although these statistics do not all provide data for individual constituencies, local authority-level data is generally available for the measure of all children in workless households and for both the educational attainment measures.

These commonly include features designed to account for income volatility, such as the ability to make capital repayments at any time, or income assessments using averaged figures to smooth out monthly variations.</p><p> </p><p>Beyond the FCA’s regulations, decisions about the type and availability of mortgage products are commercial decisions for lenders, and the Government does not seek to intervene in these decisions.</p>
