But although HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) does not have this information readily available the average cost of processing a personal income tax return was published by HMRC in the ‘International Tax Benchmarking Study' in 2011 which is available on the HMRC website at: <a href="http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/research/benchmarking.pdf" target="_blank">www.hmrc.gov.uk/research/benchmarking.pdf</a></p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>From incidents reported to the National Reporting and Learning System (NRLS) there is evidence that the prescription of opioid medicines for all conditions, including chronic pain, have led to fatal overdoses in patients in England and Wales. However, this information cannot be used to provide evidence of abuse.</p><p> </p><p>The report <em>A review of controlled drug incidents reported to the NRLS over seven years</em> (2005 to 2011) published in the Pharmaceutical Journal in 2013 provided details of the number and types of patient safety incidents involving Controlled Drugs (CDs), including opioid medicines, reported to the NRLS. In addition incidents with reported outcomes of death and severe harm were also analysed qualitatively. A copy of the report has been placed in the Library.</p><p> </p><p>There were 72,028 incidents reported to the NRLS over the seven year period. Of 10,678 incidents of reported harm there were 54 deaths, 74 incidents of severe harm and 10,550 incidents of other harm. Incidents involving overdose of CDs accounted for 89 (69.5%) of the 128 incidents reported of serious harm (combining death and severe harm).</p><p> </p><p>Unsafe use of CDs is the number one cause of serious harm from medication incidents reported to the NRLS. NHS England is working with the Care Quality Commission and has established a clinical safety group of the National Accountable Officers for Controlled Drugs Committee. This group is providing further guidance to Accountable Officers for Controlled Drugs and healthcare practitioners on safer use of controlled drugs.</p>

star this property answer text <p>We have not seen any reports of threatened military action by Malian fighters in Chad, Jebel Marra or Abyei. However, the UK is concerned about the vulnerability of fragile states across the region. For this reason, the UK supports efforts to increase regional co-operation on cross border threats such as those of the EU and UN. This approach is reflected for example in our integrated North and West Africa strategy.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p> </p><p>Local authorities are statutorily required to provide a number of services including electoral registration. Section 8 of the Representation of the People Act 1983 provides for the appointment of an officer of the council to be the Registration Officer for the registration of parliamentary and local government electors, and section 54 of that Act provides that expenses properly incurred by a registration officer in the performance of his registration duties shall be paid by the local authority by whom the registration officer was appointed.</p><p> </p><p>Additionally, the Government has committed to funding all net costs of the transition to Individual Electoral Registration to ensure that authorities are not left with unfunded burdens in line with the New Burdens Doctrine. In April 2014 the programme paid non-ring fenced section 31 grants to local authorities in England and Wales and paid invoices directly to Scotland to cover core Individual Electoral Registration costs.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>Schools are already required to support children with long term medical conditions, and this would include suffers of neurofibromatosis. Non-statutory guidance is available to schools, “Managing Medicines in Schools and Early Years Settings”, to help them manage medicines and supporting children with medical needs such as this.</p><p>From September 2014, there will be a new duty, (introduced in the Children and Families Act 2014), on governing bodies of maintained schools (and proprietors of academies) to make arrangements to support pupils at school with medical conditions and to have regard to statutory guidance. The proposed text of the guidance (upon which we have consulted publicly) is available on GOV.UK so that schools can prepare for implementation in the autumn term. It sets out the requirements on schools to support children with medical conditions, which we would expect them to apply to conditions like neurofibromatosis.</p><p> </p> more like this
