answer text <p>There are currently no plans to ringfence funding for statutory youth workers and services. Providing councils with the freedom to use funds in a way that responds to local needs and priorities and avoiding the ringfencing of specific funds, is key to ensuring financial sustainability and sound financial management on the part of authorities themselves.</p><p>The 2019-20 settlement confirmed that Core Spending Power is forecast to increase from £45.1 billion in 2018-19 to £46.4 billion in 2019-20. This is a cash-increase of 2.8 per cent and a real-terms increase in resources available to local authorities. This recognises both the growing pressure on local government’s services and higher-than-expected inflation levels.</p> more like this

answer text <p>For the past four years of the First World War centenary, we have supported a number of projects that have highlighted the contribution of the Chinese Labour Corps. We supported the ‘Unremembered Project’, which recognised the contribution made by labour corps from across Asia, Africa and the Caribbean, and this included a focus on the Chinese Labour Corps. We also supported the Meridian Society to work in schools and communities to highlight the almost 100,000 men recruited by Britain to provide essential logistical support in Europe. Currently, we are also supporting the <a href="http://ensuringweremember.org.uk/" target="_blank"> ‘Ensuring We Remember</a> ’ campaign, to create a permanent memorial in central London, to be unveiled in 2019. This memorial is backed by the Chinese in Britain Forum and the Chinese embassy.</p> more like this

answer text <p>Last year the Government’s Clean Growth Strategy, which supports the Industrial Strategy, announced a Local Energy Programme, which supports local actors, community groups, local authorities and combined authorities to develop their own energy strategies and deliver their own energy programmes. Community energy is a key part of clean growth, showing what can happen when groups of people come together to de-carbonise energy in local areas, whilst also investing in these places to bring other economic, or social, benefits. Even small-scale projects can provide a valuable contribution to cutting greenhouse gas emissions.</p><p>The National Planning Policy Framework expects local planning authorities to recognise the responsibility on all communities to contribute to energy generation from renewable or low carbon sources. New tests were introduced into planning in 2015 to give local people the final say on onshore wind planning applications in England, which delivered on a manifesto commitment made by the previous Government. Planning for onshore wind turbines in the UK is devolved outside of England.</p>

answer text <p>Each combined authority remains responsible for its own borrowing. The prudential borrowing regime provides that an authority can borrow lawfully only if it can demonstrate that servicing and repayments of the debt are affordable. Mayoral combined authorities have annual maximum debt caps in place, agreed with HM Treasury, which can be reviewed if the need arises, and for the West Midlands:</p><table><tbody><tr><td><p>2018-19</p></td><td><p>2019-20</p></td><td><p>2020-21</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>£546,744,807</p></td><td><p>£783,049,523</p></td><td><p>£1,041,974,844</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p>Figures published by the Ministry for Housing, Communities and Local Government detail outstanding debt on a quarterly basis for each local authority and combined authority, available at:</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/statistical-data-sets/live-tables-on-local-government-finance" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/statistical-data-sets/live-tables-on-local-government-finance</a></p><p> </p>

According to CHAIN, 3 per cent of the rough sleeping population in London have self-declared as having served in the armed forces.</p><p>This 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 which sets 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 spending review period.</p> more like this
