star this property answer text <p>International standards on anti-money laundering and counter terrorist financing (AML and CTF), including regulation and supervision of financial institutions, are set by the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) of which the UK is a member. The Caribbean Overseas Territories (OTs) are members of the Caribbean Financial Action Task Force (CFATF) and as such have signed up to implement the FATF standards. They are also subject to mutual evaluations of their AML/CTF regimes through this body. The UK Government continues to engage actively with the OTs to encourage them to make improvements to their AML and CTF regimes in line with the international standards and the UK’s approach. However, the OTs are separate jurisdictions with their own democratically elected governments and changes to their regimes will ultimately be a decision for the locally elected government of each Territory.</p><p> </p> more like this

Government money spent on NCS supports not only the programme but also the organisations it partners with which include over 100 local councils, schools and sports clubs, of which 50 are charities and social enterprises primarily from the youth sector.</p><p> </p><p>Local authorities are primarily responsible for allocating public funding to youth services in their area. We believe they are best placed to know what their communities require.</p><p> </p><p>However, Government recognises the transformational impact open access youth work can have especially for young people facing multiple barriers of disadvantage, that is why we have invested £40m in The Youth Investment Fund to boost open access youth services in 6 disadvantaged areas and expect over 300,000 young people to benefit. This is one of a number of Government programmes designed to enable young people to develop skills and participate in their communities.</p>

star this property answer text Protecting children and the vulnerable from being harmed or exploited by gambling is a core objective of the regulation of gambling in Great Britain, and a priority for the government. Operators offering gambling services to people in Great Britain must have a licence from the Gambling Commission and must have effective policies and procedures designed to prevent underage gambling. The Gambling Commission has a range of powers to act in the case of failure, including the power to suspend or revoke a licence, impose financial penalties or prosecute criminal offences. The Review of Gaming Machines and Social Responsibility set out measures to increase existing protections around online gambling and gambling advertising. The Gambling Commission is currently consulting on strengthening age verification protections for online gambling. It is also working with the video games industry to raise awareness of the risks of third parties using its products to provide illegal gambling facilities.<p> </p>

star this property answer text The government considered licence fee funding during BBC Charter Review in 2015. While no funding model meets all the criteria of an ideal system, the current model provides the BBC with a sustainable core income paid by all households that watch or receive television. This model has wider support than any alternative: 60% of Charter Review consultation responses indicated that no change was needed to the current licence fee model, and only 3% favoured full subscription funding. As a result, we have committed to maintain the licence fee funding model for the BBC for the duration of the new 11 year Charter period. The BBC is independent of government. The BBC Board is therefore responsible for the appropriate use of licence fee revenue, and it is for licence fee payers to determine whether the BBC is value for money. more like this
