This includes, from April 2017, permanently doubling Small Business Rate Relief and raising the threshold for relief meaning that over 600,000 small businesses now pay no business rates at all, and helping all business by switching the measure of inflation, used for the indexation of rates, from Retail Price Index to Consumer Price Index.</p> more like this

It gives examples of how councils can do this, including setting aside a proportion of properties for former members of the Armed Forces under a local lettings policy, which is what Cheltenham Borough Council have done.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Housing Health and Safety Rating System assesses the health and safety risks in all residential properties. Under the Housing Act 2004, following an Rating System inspection, if a local authority identifies a serious hazard they can take action, including issuing an Improvement Notice or a Hazard Awareness Notice. In extreme circumstances, the local authority may decide to make repairs themselves, or to prohibit that property from being rented out. Where a landlord fails to comply with a statutory notice, this is an offence, and they can be prosecuted by the local authority. From October 2015 we introduced protection for tenants from retaliatory eviction, where they have a legitimate complaint about the condition of the property.</p><p>The Housing and Planning Bill will strengthen local authorities’ ability and incentives to tackle rogue landlords by introducing measures including:</p><ul><li>A database of rogue landlords and property agents convicted of certain offences;</li><li>Banning orders for the most serious and prolific offenders;</li><li>Civil penalties of up to £30,000 as an alternative to prosecution;</li><li>Extension of Rent Repayment Orders to cover illegal eviction, breach of a banning order or failure to comply with a statutory notice;</li><li>A more stringent fit and proper person test for landlords of licensable properties such as Houses in Multiple Occupation.</li></ul><p>My Department also recently announced a further £5 million of funding across 48 local authorities to tackle the worst rogue landlords in their areas.</p>

star this property answer text <p>We have made clear in the recent political agreement (published on 14 November) that the UK remains committed to continued cooperation with the EU on education. In the attached government white paper, ‘The future relationship between the United Kingdom and the European Union[1]’, we also set out our desire to facilitate mobility for students and young people, enabling them to continue to benefit from world leading universities and the cultural experiences the UK and EU Member States – including France – have to offer.</p><p>With the caveat that “nothing is agreed until everything is agreed”, in principle the UK will continue to benefit from all EU programmes, including Erasmus+, until the end of the current budget plan, and applications should continue as normal. The UK is also open to exploring participation in the successor scheme to the current Erasmus+ Programme. We welcome the attached proposals for the 2021-2027 successor scheme to Erasmus+ (published on 30 May), and are considering these carefully; we will continue to participate in discussions on these proposals while we remain in the EU. Ultimately, UK participation in the successor programme is a matter for negotiations on our future relationship with the EU.</p><p>[1] The white paper can be found via this link: <a href="https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/725288/The_future_relationship_between_the_United_Kingdom_and_the_European_Union.pdf" target="_blank">https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/725288/The_future_relationship_between_the_United_Kingdom_and_the_European_Union.pdf</a>.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) has been working closely with Carillion and the department to closely monitor the impact on apprentices and apprenticeship provision following the collapse of Carillion.</p><p>The government’s priority is to minimise disruption to apprentices and is intent on finding new employers for the apprentices that have been affected by the liquidation of Carillion. The ESFA has taken steps to protect learners by identifying the Construction Industry Training Board , as the best placed alternative provider.</p><p>There were 45 apprentices within the engineering and manufacturing technologies sector subject area and those relate specifically to plumbing and heating and electro technical frameworks. They fall within construction trades alongside the vast majority of Carillion apprenticeships.</p><p>37 of these apprentices were employed directly by Carillion, along with five other employers offering employment to the remaining eight apprentices. Therefore, we anticipate little impact on availability of engineering apprenticeships because these frameworks were sub-contracted by Carillion and therefore not directly impacted by their collapse.</p>
