star this property answer text Public authorities will need to comply with the fundamental principles relating to processing of of personal data under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). That includes ensuring that personal data is processed lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner. The GDPR strengthens the rights of data subjects in several key areas. For example, they will be able to access their data more quickly than provided for by the current law. Public authorities will also need to appoint a 'data protection officer' to inform and advise the organisation on compliance with the GDPR, subject to the remaining stages in the House of Commons and House of Lords.<p> </p> more like this

star this property question text To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Baroness Buscombe on 19 December (HL12320), what assessment have they made of the main conclusions of the report by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation UK Poverty 2018, published on 4 December 2018, that (1) child poverty has been rising since 2011–12, (2) 4.1 million children are living in poverty, a rise of 500,000 in the last five years, (3) four million workers are living in poverty, a rise of more than half a million over five years, and (4) that in-work poverty has been rising faster than employment. more like this

star this property answer text <p>(1) &amp; (2) We disagree with the reports emphasis and analysis being solely based on a relative poverty measure. There are 300,000 fewer children (both before and after housing costs) living in absolute poverty since 2010.</p><p>(3) &amp; (4) The risk of being in absolute poverty (before housing costs), if you are in work, has remained broadly stable over time. Also, there is an 8 per cent chance of working-age adults being in absolute poverty (before housing costs), which is the lowest since 2005. For children in couple families, there is only a 2 per cent chance of being in absolute poverty (before housing costs) if both parents work full-time. Also, the majority of those in-work poverty are those with part-time work only, single earner couples, or those in full-time self-employment. Finally, Universal Credit helps by incentivising the entry into work, offering smooth incentives to increase hours, and setting a general expectation that lone parents and partners should work (if not caring for young children or a disabled person) and offers generous childcare subsidies.</p>

Such machines are not typically located in adult gaming centres.</p><p> </p><p>(2) There are seven Gambling Duties. Of these, six are based broadly on a gross profits tax model.
