The role of these posts is defined in DE&amp;S policy as having specified safety-related, decision-making responsibilities and accountabilities, and must be filled by people competent to make such decisions. Should a post become vacant, priority is given to recruitment action. Until the vacancy is filled, the post responsibilities are either transferred to other competent people or, to ensure safety, related activities cease. <br><br>Safety-Critical post data is reviewed on a monthly basis and as at 1 April 2014 there were 97 vacant Safety-Critical posts in DE&amp;S out of a total of 1,321.

unstar this property answer text <p> </p><p>To assist public scrutiny, I have placed in the Library of the House, a table showing homelessness acceptances due to loss of private sector tenancy, by local authority, in each year from 2003 to 2013.</p><p>Data is not collected by Parliamentary constituency. My Department does not publish statistics by the former government office regions.</p><p>The dataset shows that under the last Administration, the average numbers were higher than under this Administration, especially when taking account the changes in the overall size to the private rented sector.</p><p>I would note that the rental sector policies of HM Opposition would make the problem worse, by reducing the availability of private rented accommodation, forcing up rents and discouraging investment in the private rented sector. By contrast, this Government is increasing house building, delivering £19.5 billion of investment in affordable housing, supporting billions of private investment in new private rented accommodation, providing £470 million to prevent and tackle all forms of homelessness, and avoiding the excessive regulation which would harm the interests of tenants.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p> </p>

Councils have a responsibility to move homeless households into settled accommodation as quickly as possible and we made common sense changes to the law to enable them to use suitable private rented homes. Indeed the average stay in temporary accommodation in England has been reduced from 20 months at the beginning of 2010 to 14 months now.</p><p>We have also seen a 42% reduction in the numbers of families with children in Bed and Breakfast for more than six weeks on this time last year across the country. The seven local authorities that we funded to tackle families in Bed and Breakfast have made significant progress achieving an overall reduction of 96% since the funding began.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p><strong> </strong></p><p> </p>

unstar this property answer text <p>There is already legislation, the Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations 2008 (CPRs) which requires traders to provide consumers with the information they need to make informed decisions. The Regulations prohibit commercial practices which omit or hide material information which the average consumer needs, according to the context, to decide how they meet these obligations in relation to the prices they charge, but having a clearly visible price list would be a relatively easy way of ensuring that consumers have access to relevant information. The CPRs also make it a criminal offence to give misleading price information.</p> more like this
