star this property answer text <p>Over 99% of individual employment records are now being reported in real time. This method of sharing information is allowing us to run a welfare system that is responsive to changes in earnings and helps us identify cases of fraud. Only a small proportion of the 1% of remaining cases are referred to HMRC to clarify those earnings with the employer.</p><p> </p><p>DWP works closely with HMRC to investigate any risks associated with RTI data and jointly deals with disputes arising when claimants query their reported earnings. As DWP receives copies of the data submitted by employers, the risk of data corruption within HMRC is regarded as minimal. However, DWP and HMRC continually monitor the data and no significant problems have been identified.</p><p> </p><p>A number of processes are in place to deal with inaccurate data from employers. DWP and HMRC analysts monitor the RTI data received, looking for trends, patterns and causes. Both Departments then work together with employers and partners, such as software developers and payroll bureaux, to improve the quality of the data. This work supplements the Bankers' Automated Clearing Services (BACS) payment validation process.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>National policy sets out clearly the need for local planning authorities to plan for the housing needs of all members of the community, including suitable properties for disabled people. Our recent Housing White Paper sets out the ways in which the planning system will be used to deliver more suitable homes for people with disabilities, including proposals to strengthen the National Planning Policy Framework. We are also introducing a new statutory duty on the Secretary of State to produce guidance for local planning authorities on meeting the housing needs of older and disabled people.</p><p>In addition, since 2011, we have delivered 27,000 supported housing units for disabled, vulnerable and older people. At Autumn Statement 2015, we announced £400 million new specialist affordable homes also for the vulnerable, elderly or those with disabilities. We have also increased funding for the Disabled Facilities Grant (DFG). Since 2012, the Government has invested over £1.6 billion into the Grant, providing around 250,000 adaptations by the end of the 2017-18 financial year. By 2020, we expect to have invested around a further £1 billion, with year-on-year increases meaning that spending on DFG will more than double to over £500 million from £220 million in 2015-16. Budget 2017 announced an additional £42 million for DFG in 2017-18.</p>
