star this property answer text <p>The Government recognises that domestic abuse is a devastating crime that shatters the lives of victims and families. It is vital that the response to domestic abuse supports victims and survivors, pursues perpetrators and ensures agencies provide an effective service.</p><p> </p><p>The Government will be publishing a landmark draft Domestic Abuse Bill, which will help transform our response to the crime. We will have pledged to create a statutory Government definition of domestic abuse, introduce new Domestic Abuse Protection Orders and establish a Domestic Abuse Commissioner.</p><p> </p><p>DWP policies are subject to appraisal and impact assessment in line with HM Treasury Green Book guidance. The Department is required under the Public Sector Equality Duty to assess the impact of specific policies on ‘protected groups’ including by gender, age, race and disability, and where relevant this requirement is met by the conducting of equality impact assessments. We have no current plans separately to consider domestic abuse.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Passengers who are delayed due to the cancellation of a scheduled train service but who have to travel on a subsequent train or take a taxi to complete their journey should be entitled to compensation in accordance with the Train Operating Company’s (TOC’s) published Passenger’s Charter. The passenger’s arrival time at their destination should determine their entitlement to Delay Repay compensation.</p><p> </p><p>The majority of TOCs operate the Delay Repay compensation system which provides compensation to the value of 50% of the ticket price for delays or cancellations when the passenger is delayed in reaching their destination by 30-59 minutes. Delay Repay 15 (DR15) additionally entitles passengers who have been delayed by 15-29 minutes to compensation worth 25% of the ticket price. The next TOC to introduce this will be Northern expected by the end of December.</p><p> </p><p>The rail industry has also recently launched the new Rail Ombudsman service, which will give passengers a stronger voice and help ensure they get a fair deal when disputes with train operators cannot otherwise be resolved.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>Where JCB equipment is subject to export controls the exporter must have a licence authorising shipment. All export licence applications are assessed rigorously against the Consolidated EU and National Arms Export Licensing Criteria. The Consolidated Criteria provide a thorough risk assessment framework and require us to consider the impact of providing equipment and its capabilities. The Government will not grant a licence if to do so would be inconsistent with these criteria, including respect for human rights and international humanitarian law.</p><p>The British Government is fully committed to the promotion of the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, and the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises. The UK government has had discussions with JCB on a range of subjects and continues to encourage and foster respect for human rights among UK businesses.</p> more like this

It also states that “It should facilitate trade and investment between the Parties to the extent possible, while respecting the integrity of the Union's Single Market and the Customs Union as well as the United Kingdom's internal market, and recognising the development of an independent trade policy by the United Kingdom beyond this economic partnership.” Goods exported from the UK to the EU following the transition period will be subject to arrangements that are consistent with these objectives and principles.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Imprisonment should only ever be the last resort for non-payment of council tax. Before a magistrates’ court commits someone to prison for failure to pay their council tax, it must inquire as to the debtor’s means, and satisfy itself that failure to pay is due to “wilful refusal or culpable neglect”. This is to prevent persons who are genuinely unable to pay their council tax from being committed to prison. The Government does not have any plans to change the current arrangements.</p> more like this
