unstar this property answer text <p>We are keeping our families, communities and country safe by making sure the police have the resources they need to carry out their vital work. We protected police funding in real terms at the Spending Review 2015. Recognising that the police are responding to a shift in demand, in 2019/20 we have: increased the Government’s core grant to police forces by £161m; and, allowed Police and Crime Commissioners to increase their council tax precept referendum principle to £24, which if used in full would raise £509m.</p><p> </p><p>The upcoming Spending Review will allow the government to consider its priorities across all spending.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>To date, no guarantees under the UK Guarantees Scheme have been issued to road projects in Northern Ireland. This information, alongside details of the UK Guarantees scheme, is publicly available here: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/guidance/uk-guarantees-scheme" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/guidance/uk-guarantees-scheme</a>. The UK Guarantees Scheme was established in 2012, with a capacity of up to £40 billion, to support private investment in UK infrastructure projects. As the scheme is demand-led, it only operates where needed and guarantees are not allocated by region. So far, the UK Guarantees Scheme has issued £1.8 billion of guarantees, supporting over £4 billion worth of investment.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>The Government introduced the High Income Child Benefit Charge (HICBC) from January 2013 to ensure that support is targeted at those who need it most. It applies to anyone with an individual income over £50,000, who claims Child Benefit or whose partner claims it. The charge increases gradually for taxpayers with incomes between £50,000 and £60,000.</p><p> </p>If total household income was taken into account, information on the incomes of everyone in each of the eight million households receiving Child Benefit would need to be collected and would effectively introduce a new means test. The Government’s approach withdraws Child Benefit from those on higher incomes, whilst having no impact on the majority of claimants. more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>The Government keeps public sector pay and pensions policy under constant review in the context of the wider public finances. The same tax rules must apply identically to everyone in the same situation, regardless of their employer.</p><p> </p><p>Pensions tax relief is one of the most expensive reliefs in the personal tax system. In 2017/18 income tax and employer National Insurance Contributions relief cost over £50 billion, with around two-thirds going to higher and additional rate taxpayers.</p><p> </p><p>The Government has listened carefully to specific concerns raised by some high-earning NHS consultants impacted by annual allowance tax charges.</p><p> </p><p>In response, the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care has announced his intention to consult on proposals for a new 50:50 option providing pension flexibility for senior clinicians in the NHS. This flexibility will give senior clinicians in England and Wales more choice in respect of their pension accrual, and therefore the ability to control better any pensions tax charges.</p>
