unstar this property answer text <p>The Government announced at Budget 2018 a new Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) surcharge of one per cent on non-residents buying residential property in England and Northern Ireland. This will help control house price growth and so help ensure those resident in the UK can get on the housing ladder.</p><p> </p><p>A costing for how much the surcharge will raise will be produced at a future fiscal event once the final design of the surcharge has been confirmed. This costing will follow the usual process for analysing the revenue impacts of new tax measures, including being subject to scrutiny from the Office for Budget Responsibility.</p><p> </p><p>The Government remains committed to ending rough sleeping. The Chancellor announced £54m of new funding to reduce homelessness and rough sleeping in last week’s Spending Round. This takes total resource funding to £422m next year – a real terms increase of 13%.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) does not conduct roadside spot checks on lorries, solely for emissions. The DVSA does conduct roadside mechanical spot checks on lorries, which include a check for emissions control equipment (cheat devices). Over the last three years the DVSA has carried out the following roadside mechanical spot checks on lorries:<br></p><p>2016/2017 – 110,570</p><p>2017/2018 – 108,050</p><p>2018/2019 – 95,280</p><p> </p><p>The number of checks has reduced year-on-year because the DVSA now carries out targeted enforcement of seriously and serially non-compliant vehicles. Targeted enforcement allows compliant operators to conduct their business without expecting their vehicles to be subject to random checks.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this
