star this property answer text <p>The student funding system removes financial barriers for anyone hoping to study and is backed by the taxpayer. A key feature of the scheme is that outstanding debt – including any interest accrued that has not been repaid by the end of the loan term – is written off after 30 years. This means that borrowers are protected if their repayments are less than the interest accruing on their accounts.</p><p> </p><p>Monthly student loan repayments are linked to income, not to interest rates or the amount borrowed. Borrowers earning less than the repayment threshold (£21,000) repay nothing at all.</p><p> </p><p>Once borrowers leave study, those earning less than £21,000 are charged an interest rate of RPI only. Post-study interest rates are variable based on income, tapering up from RPI for those earning less than £21,000 to RPI+3% for borrowers earning £41,000 and above. The system of variable interest rates based on income makes the system more progressive, as higher earners contribute more to the sustainability of the higher education system.</p><p> </p><p>We have a world class student finance system that is working well, and that has led to record numbers of disadvantaged students benefiting from higher education. As ever, we will keep the detailed features of the system under review to ensure it remains fair and effective.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>Minister Johnson, the Minister for Universities and Science, in his speech at Reform on 20 July 2017, called on the sector to put an end to increasing vice chancellor pay and provide justification for the exceptional circumstances for large pay awards to improve value for money.</p><p> </p><p>He also announced that he will be issuing new guidance to the Office for Students (OfS) to use its powers to address this problem.</p><p> </p><p>Universities are autonomous bodies and it is their responsibility to determine pay arrangements for their staff. However, Minister Johnson has called for action to put an end to the upward spiral in vice chancellors’ pay.</p><p> </p><p>The Government’s 2017/18 grant letter to the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) stated:</p><p> </p><p>“The Government is clear that efficiency includes demonstrating restraint in senior pay and remains concerned about the substantial upwards drift in salaries of some top management. We would like to see senior leaders in the sector exercise more pay restraint.”</p><p> </p><p>HEFCE issued guidance to the sector on severance pay and the remuneration of senior staff in June 2017: <a href="http://www.hefce.ac.uk/pubs/year/2017/CL,172017/" target="_blank">http://www.hefce.ac.uk/pubs/year/2017/CL,172017/</a> (copy attached).</p><p> </p><p>It states that governing bodies and remuneration committees should always bear in mind the principles outlined and to record clearly the rationale behind their decisions, including any divergence from the guidance.</p>

DFID is investing in improving collection and use of disaggregated data (by sex, age and disability) to enable us to empower and include those who are too often invisible or face additional barriers to escaping poverty, such as older people. For example, we have led the way on the Inclusive Data Charter Action Plan and worked with others to improve the international development system on disaggregated and inclusive data.</p><p> </p><p>Social protection mechanisms can play a crucial part in supporting economic empowerment, as such DFID is enabling the empowerment of older women through social protection programmes, including in Uganda, where UKaid is supporting expanded social protection for older people.</p><p> </p><p>The UK is committed to shining a spotlight on the vulnerabilities of widows globally, including raising awareness of the multiple discrimination and abuse often faced by older widows. In Ghana, UKaid is securing lives of dignity for elderly widows banished from their communities due to ‘witchcraft’ accusations and working with traditional authorities to condemn violence, social exclusion and abuse towards widows. At the Commission on the Status of Women in March, the UK helped secure the first ever UN-level recognition of the need to invest in adequate measures to protect and support widows.</p>

star this property answer text <p>International Driving Permits (IDPs) in the formats specified in the 1949 Geneva Convention and the 1926 Paris Convention which the UK is party to are currently issued under the authority of the Secretary of State by the AA and the RAC. The Department for Transport does not hold or collect year-on-year figures for IDP issuance, but understands that approximately 110,000 IDPs were issued in 2016 with almost 100,000 of these being issued via Post Office counters under a contract with the AA.</p><p> </p><p>These figures cover both convention formats. The vast majority of IDPs are issued in the 1949 Convention format, as the 1926 Convention only currently applies in three countries.</p> more like this
