unstar this property answer text <p>The Government is committed to reducing homelessness and rough sleeping. No one should ever have to sleep rough. That is why last summer we published the cross-government Rough Sleeping Strategy. This set out an ambitious £100 million package to help people who sleep rough now, but also puts in place the structures that will end rough sleeping once and for all. The Government has now committed over £1.2 billion to tackle homelessness and rough sleeping over the current spending review period. In 2018/19, £30 million in Rough Sleeping Initiative (RSI) funding provided 1,750 additional bed spaces and 500 rough sleeping support staff. Government support is expanding as we move into 2019/20, with £46 million for the RSI including £12 million to new areas. We expect this to deliver an additional 750 staff and 2,600 bed spaces this year.</p><p>We are currently making preparations across Government to prepare for the forthcoming Spending Review, which includes specific work on Youth Homelessness. In addition, the Homelessness Reduction Act, the most ambitious reform to homelessness legislation in decades, has pledged a duty to refer on public services to refer those who are, or at risk of, homelessness to local authorities. The Homelessness Advice and Support Team supports implementation of the Homelessness Reduction Act and includes specific youth advisers to work closely with local authorities on issues around Youth Homelessness.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>The law is clear that any individual performing work is entitled to receive the National Minimum and National Living Wage (NMW). The Government is committed to enforcing this right. In 2018/19 HM Revenue &amp; Customs (HMRC) identified a record £24.4 million in arrears for over 220,000 workers and issued over £17 million in penalties to non-compliant employers. The budget to enforce the NMW stands at its highest ever.</p><p> </p><p>HMRC have contacted over 2,000 employers found to be advertising unpaid internships online to ensure they are compliant with the law. They have also issued over 15,000 letters to employers in industries where internships are common to remind them of their responsibilities.</p><p> </p><p>Earlier this month my hon Friend the Minister of State (Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport) (Digital Policy) (Margot James) and I co-hosted a roundtable on internships with employers and organisations in the creative industries. Discussion focused on how Government can work better with employers to raise the profile of existing rules and ensure that interns are paid in accordance with NMW law. The event provided important insight which will be used to improve compliance with the law across all sectors.</p><p> </p><p>Anyone who feels they are being underpaid the NMW should contact Acas for free impartial advice or make a complaint directly to HMRC through their online form. HMRC follow up on every worker complaint received, even those which are anonymous.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>The Department is committing increased expenditure to support the provision of mental health services in the community, to reduce the need for children to be admitted to mental health hospitals unless absolutely necessary.</p><p>Through the NHS Long Term Plan, published in January 2019, mental health funding will grow by at least £2.3 billion a year by 2023/24, with funding for children and young people’s mental health services growing faster than both overall National Health Service funding and total mental health spending. This extra investment will mean an extra 345,000 children and young people aged 0-25 will receive mental health support by 2023/24.</p><p>The key proposals in ‘Transforming children and young people’s mental health provision: a green paper’ aim to improve early intervention. New mental health support teams will deliver evidence-based interventions in or close to schools and colleges for those with mild to moderate mental health issues in 25 trailblazer areas in England. 12 of the 25 trailblazer sites will pilot a four-week waiting time to speed up children and young people’s access to NHS mental health services.</p><p>Over the next five years, the NHS will therefore continue to invest in expanding access to community-based mental health services to meet the needs of more children and young people.</p><p>The NHS Long Term Plan prioritises services for children and young people, providing a clear focus on improving the health and wellbeing of children and young people with learning disabilities and/or autism, as well as committing to implementing ‘Building the right support’ in full, achieving at least a 50% reduction in the number of people with a learning disability or autism who are inpatients, compared to the figure in 2015, by the end of 2023/24.</p><p>The Long Term Plan sets out specific commitments to achieve this by developing new models of care to provide care closer to home and investing in intensive, crisis and forensic community support. By 2023/24 children and young people with a learning disability, autism or both with the most complex needs will also have a designated keyworker. These will be initially provided to children and young people who are inpatients or at risk of being admitted to hospital.</p><p>Furthermore, the Government is committed to reviewing mental health legislation so that it works better for both adults and children. We are currently considering the findings from the independent review of the Mental Health Act 1983, which covers how a person can be detained or sectioned for treatment and will respond in due course.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>

unstar this property answer text <p>No estimate has been made. Pool Betting Duty raises around £5m in revenue for the Exchequer per annum. Reducing the level of taxation would be likely to have at best a limited effect on the football pools. However, it could put revenue at risk, particularly through incentivising switching of products from fixed odds bets to pooled bets.</p><p> </p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>Local authorities have a wide range of enforcement powers to tackle fly-tipping and we have recently strengthened these. In 2016 we gave local authorities the power to issue fixed penalty notices for small scale fly-tipping and enhanced local authorities’ ability to search and seize the vehicles of suspected fly-tippers. In January this year, we introduced further financial penalties to crack down on fly-tipping giving local authorities the power to issue penalties of up to £400 to householders who fail to pass their waste to a licensed carrier and whose waste is then found fly-tipped. We will also support local authorities in increasing householders’ awareness of their duty of care to ensure their waste is disposed of appropriately.</p><p> </p><p>In our Resources and Waste Strategy for England, we have <del class="ministerial">included</del> <ins class="ministerial">committed to develop a</ins> fly-tipping toolkit which will cover how local authorities can set up and run an effective fly-tipping partnership and how to present robust cases to court to ensure tougher penalties. The Strategy also sets out how we will work with the court system to further strengthen the sentences of fly-tippers to ensure they act as a suitable deterrent.</p>
