star this property answer text <p>Local Resilience Forums are required under the Civil Contingencies Act to compile and publish community risk registers setting out the main risks in their areas to both raise awareness and guide contingency planning. In doing this, they are guided by, among other things, the National Risk Assessment (NRA) which covers the range of risks that could cause a civil emergency in the UK, and provides a list of the common consequences of these risks in the form of planning assumptions. These cover the maximum scale, duration and impact that could reasonably be expected to occur as a result of emergencies.</p><p>The NRA is classified for national security reasons, and it is therefore not possible to share details of the reasonable worst-case scenarios or planning assumptions. A declassified version is available in the form of the <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/national-risk-register-for-civil-emergencies-2015-edition" target="_blank">National Risk Register of Civil Emergencies</a> (NRR). This is also provided to the local planning community, and has been placed in the House of Lords Library. Most Community Risk Registers are also available online.</p><p><strong> </strong></p>

As of 1<sup>st</sup> April 2017, the National Living Wage will be set at £7.50 per hour.</p><p>The Low Pay Commission advises the Government on the rate of annual increases required to achieve a National Living Wage that will represent 60% of median earnings by 2020. The Low Pay Commission amended its recommendations this year to meet this target, based on the latest market forecasts. In light of these changes, government departments are currently reviewing the cost and number of civil servants that will benefit from future National Living Wage increases.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government part-funded the University of Sheffield pilot, integrating electoral registration with the process of student enrolment, and has encouraged other providers of Higher and Further Education to implement a similar system.</p><p>An indicative assessment shows this project had successful outcomes. For example, in the 2015/2016 academic year, the university had 76% of eligible students registered to vote compared with figures as low as 13% for similar sized universities. The Government will further evaluate the University of Sheffield pilot to understand – in detail – the impact of the pilot and its critical success factors. We understand a number of institutions have already introduced a similar approach, or are actively considering doing so.</p><p>At the same time, we believe it is unlikely that any single approach would work in all cases. For example, the Sheffield system would not work in areas like London, or with Further Education colleges, where many students live in a different authority area from their institution, impeding the supply of information between the institution and Electoral Registration Officers. Furthermore, smaller institutions would be less able to absorb the costs associated with implementing such a system, risking the withdrawal of money from the frontline, such as providing the most up-to-date ICT equipment. For these reasons – amongst others – we believe it is right that each institution and local authority is able to choose what works best for them rather than introducing any kind of requirement for institutions to integrate enrolment and registration. Indeed, we are already seeing Higher and Further Education providers working closely with Electoral Service teams to deliver innovative ways to increase the number of students on the electoral register. The Government supports the Electoral Commission and Association of Electoral Administrators who are sharing this good practice.</p>
