unstar this property answer text <p>The Law Officers frequently meet representatives of the Serious Fraud Office (SFO) to discuss a variety of issues. However, as was the case with previous Administrations, it is not the Government’s policy to provide details of all such meetings.</p><p> </p><p>The <em>Protocol between the Attorney General and the Prosecuting Departments</em> sets out the relationship between the Attorney General and the SFO. This is published on the Gov.uk website at <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/protocol-between-the-attorney-general-and-prosecuting-departments" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/protocol-between-the-attorney-general-and-prosecuting-departments</a></p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>HMRC is currently undertaking a programme of work to transform the services it provides to give its customers a modern, efficient service, delivered in a modern and flexible way that is convenient for them.

Reduced staffing levels mean a reduced need for accommodation and HMRC has recently closed consultation on the proposed closure of 12 offices between now and December 2015.

answer
unstar this property answer text <p>The Government is concerned about problems in the debt management market, including the quality of advice which was highlighted by the Financial Conduct Authority’s (FCA) thematic review.</p><p> </p><p>This is why we reformed debt management regulation, transferring responsibility to the FCA’s more robust regime to better protect consumers. The FCA has put in place binding standards on firms and has a strong enforcement toolkit to take action against firms if these rules are broken.</p><p> </p><p>The FCA is currently scrutinising debt management firms as part of its authorisation process. Firms which do not meet the required standards will not be able to continue to provide debt management services.</p> more like this
