We will agree the first Local Industrial Strategies by March 2019.</p><p> </p><p>As we set out in the Industrial Strategy White Paper, Local Industrial Strategies will establish new ways of working between national and local leaders in both the public and private sectors. I have been encouraged by the enthusiasm local areas have shown for Local Industrial Strategies. Places in England with a Mayoral Combined Authority will have a single strategy led by the mayor and supported by Local Enterprise Partnerships. For parts of the country without a mayor, the development of the strategy will be led by the Local Enterprise Partnership.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Impact Assessment sets out clearly the rationale for introducing a cap. Analysis of the impact of the Pre-Payment Cap and retail price controls elsewhere will be of most relevance when the methodology for setting the cap is considered by Ofgem, but the Government will consider what might be relevant to include on this at the final legislation stage.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The budget for enforcing the National Minimum Wage (NMW) and National Living Wage (NLW) has increased from £13.2 million in 2015/16 to £25.3 million for 2017/18. The increase in HM Revenue and Customs’ enforcement resources has enabled an increase in the number of compliance officers available to investigate NMW abuses.</p><p> </p><p>The penalty regime has been significantly strengthened in recent years. The Government raised the penalty calculation up to 200% in 2016; this was previously 50% and more recently 100%. We have also changed the penalty cap to apply on a ‘per worker’ rather than ‘per employer’ basis; this ensures that employers who break the law face a penalty equivalent to the arrears they owe their workers, up to £20,000 maximum per worker.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Post Office is modernising and improving its national network, with thousands of branches benefitting from investment under the Government funded Network Transformation programme. This programme has already seen over 7,000 of the network’s branches modernised, delivering benefits to customers, including much longer opening hours and improved branch environments.</p><p> </p><p>It has also seen around 3,000 branches designated as ‘Community Branches’. These are typically ‘the last shop or service in a village or community’, providing vital access to Post Office services in areas which are mostly remote, rural or urban deprived. Community Branches are benefitting from continuing to receive a fixed element of remuneration from Post Office, and do not receive Government funding directly. Additionally, these branches have also had access to a £20m Government funded Community Branch Fund, to provide them with investment to help support their long-term sustainability.</p> more like this
