star this property answer text <p>There are many complex factors which contribute to and affect the financial sustainability of landlords in this sector. Research carried out by the National Federation of ALMOs shows over three quarters of their tenants come onto Universal Credit with pre-existing rent arrears.</p><p>Arrears are usually temporary and the majority of claimants do succeed in paying their rent, managing their monthly payments and clearing their arrears over time</p><p>We continually review and improve Universal Credit in response to feedback. In 2018, following Autumn Budget 2017, we have implemented a comprehensive and wide-ranging package of improvements worth £1.5 billion. These include making advances of up to 100% of the indicative award available (from the start of a claim) and increasing the repayment period to 12 months, removing the 7 waiting days, providing an additional payment of 2 weeks of Housing Benefit to support claimants when they transition to Universal Credit, and changing how claimants in temporary accommodation receive support for their housing costs.</p>

star this property answer text <p>We do not keep information on gang-related crime, but we do have information at force level about trends in knife crime, gun crime, and homicide in the West Midlands and Coventry which are offences often associated with gang activity. The latest year-on-year data comparing June 2018 to June 2017 show that knife crime has increased by 18% in the West Midlands compared to England and Wales as a whole which has seen a 12% increase.</p><p>When looking at the 5-year trend, knife crime in the West Midlands is up by 72%, which is higher than the rise for England and Wales in the same period (61%). Whilst gun crime in the West Midlands has risen by 14% between 2013/14 and 2016/17, this is lower than the rise witnessed in England and Wales (31%). Over the past five years, homicide in the West Midlands has gone up by 24%, compared to 36% in England and Wales.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>DWP employees claiming Universal Credit have no obligation to inform DWP they are on any benefit and DWP policy is clear that employees claiming benefits will not be treated more or less favourably than other staff.</p><p> </p><p>All requests for an increase in working hours are considered and agreed at a local level. Such requests will be handled in the same way regardless of the fact the employee is a Universal Credit claimant. Similarly, we keep no separate data as to whether requests for increase in hours are from employees on benefits or not. The fact that employees claim benefits has no bearing on the business decisions of DWP at organisational or individual level.</p><p> </p><p>Claimants who are in work with earnings above the Administrative Earnings Threshold are not currently expected to undertake any mandatory activity.

Therefore, whilst there is no robust estimate of the total cost of cyber crime to the UK economy it is likely to be billions.</p><p>The Economic and Social Costs of Crime report (Home Office, 2018) estimated a cost of £1.1bn from computer misuse incidents against individuals in the financial year 2015/16. However, it should be noted that this estimate is based upon experimental statistics and should be considered as a partial estimate as it excludes some key costs, such as the costs to businesses.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>111 women who were held at HMP Styal during the 2017-18 financial year had a reported North Wales address and are recorded as having children. The data from Prison-NOMIS, the system from which this information was obtained, only records if the prisoner has children (as of today) and does not state how old the children are or if they are dependents.</p><p>Our female offender strategy set out a dedicated approach to supporting female offenders and I am determined to build on this by shifting focus away from prisons to women’s centres with a range of support services, including for substance misuse and mental health problems.</p><p>We are investing an additional £5 million over two years on community provision so that, where appropriate, women are given the support they need to address their offending and turn away from a life of crime. Work is also ongoing to improve the quality pre-sentence reports to ensure that sentencers are made aware and can take account of whether an offender is a primary carer.</p><p> </p><p><strong>Note</strong>:</p><ul><li>North Wales has been defined as having a reported address within the local authorities of: Anglesey; Conwy; Denbighshire; Flintshire; Gwynedd; and Wrexham.</li><li>Around 97% of prisoners have an origin location - i.e. addresses that are recorded in our central IT system. If no address is given, an offender’s committal court address is used as a proxy for the area in which they are resident.</li><li>This information is included in the data provided in the answer above.</li><li>Those with no recorded origin are typically foreign nationals or those recently received into custody.</li><li>No address has been recorded and no court information is available for around 3% of all offenders; these figures are excluded from the figure above.</li></ul>
