star this property answer text <p>Equality and fairness continue to be at the heart of this Government’s agenda, and HM Treasury and other departments take their compliance with the Equality Act’s Public Sector Equality Duty seriously when deciding policy. Impact assessments of government policies, including the impact on equalities, are often published by relevant departments. In the interests of transparency, the Treasury and HMRC publish tax information and impact notes (TIINs) for individual tax measures that include, in summary form, assessments of their expected equalities impacts.</p><p>The government does not accept that the EHRC’s report presents an accurate view of the impacts of its policy choices. In its analysis of public spending, the EHRC does not cover the increase in spending in the new multi-year funding plan for NHS England, equating to £20.5bn more per year in real terms by 2023-24 or changes to the UC work allowance announced at Budget 2018.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Her Majesty’s Government continues to monitor the effects of Brexit uncertainty on exchange rate volatility. Recent financial market movements have been driven by a combination of global events as well as domestic developments.</p><p> </p><p>Overall, uncertainty is a key concern of businesses, including those in the manufacturing sector, as evidenced in recent manufacturing focussed business surveys. Furthermore, the Agent’s survey on EU withdrawal preparation from the Bank of England recorded that around 35% of respondents in manufacturing had already made some change to their business plans since the referendum with a further 25-30% expecting to adjust their business plans by end-March 2019.</p><p> </p><p>Delivering the settlement negotiated with the EU remains our top priority. The Government will continue to take steps to provide businesses with information for a range of scenarios. These include HMRC publishing a ‘Partnership Pack’ to help businesses prepare for changes at the UK border and the publication of 106 technical notices to help businesses prepare for a ‘no deal’ scenario. The Government has also launched a public information campaign to ensure that citizens and businesses are well informed about how Brexit will affect them and the practical steps they will need to take.</p>
