unstar this property answer text <p>So far three of an anticipated four days have been scheduled and advertised (21, 23 and 30 January). The remaining day will be rescheduled as a day had to be set aside for the House to have a further debate under section 13 of the EU (Withdrawal) Act which is now scheduled for 28 January. The progress of all business is, as always, in the hands of the House. But the Usual Channels have agreed to those dates on the assumption that they should allow Committee Stage to be completed inside four days and the Usual Channels are working to get the remaining day scheduled within the first week of February.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>It is crucial that social homes are safe and that appropriate action is taken to tackle anti-social behaviour.</p><p>We are addressing building safety concerns in light of the Grenfell Tower fire to ensure that residents of higher risk buildings are safe and feel safe now and in the future. As part of our comprehensive response to the fire we have established the Building Safety Portfolio. This has four stages: to identify unsafe buildings, make buildings safe, identify system problems and fix the system.</p><p>To address wider safety measures in social housing, we consulted on a proposal in our social housing Green Paper to review the Decent Homes Standard to make sure it covers the right issues. We also invited views on whether new safety measures introduced in to the private rented sector should apply in the social rented sector. We plan to set out the Government response to the Green Paper in Spring 2019.</p><p>We have already taken action to address anti-social behaviour in neighbourhoods. The Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 provides the police, local authorities and other local agencies including social landlords with a range of flexible powers, to respond quickly and effectively to different forms of anti-social and nuisance behaviour.</p><p>The Green Paper also included proposals to help tackle anti-social behaviour, including through the introduction of key performance indicators for social landlords in England around anti-social behaviour and neighbourhood management.</p>

If a parking company was to repeatedly break this code, then their access to the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) data would be blocked. This data includes information on the vehicle keeper, so a company blocked from accessing it would be unable to pursue parking charges. I spoke at the Bill’s Third Reading in the Commons to voice the Government’s support and it has now passed to the House of Lords.</p> more like this

If these individuals go on to acquire settled status under the EU Settlement Scheme they will then be able to access benefits on comparable to UK nationals.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>Across government, we are tackling the problems that cause children to be in need in the first place. This includes better supporting those with alcohol-dependent parents and the introduction of landmark legislation for those affected by domestic abuse, preventing young people being drawn into serious violence. The government have also provided unprecedented investment in early years education, support for children and young people’s mental health and the Troubled Families programme to achieve improvement for families with multiple, high-cost problems.</p><p>At Autumn Budget, my right hon. Friend, the Chancellor announced an extra £410 million to address pressures on adult and children social care services. This builds on the £200 billion government has already made available to councils up to 2020 to provide services in the best interests of local residents, including those for children and young people.</p><p>My right hon. Friend, the Chancellor also announced at Autumn Budget £84 million over 5 years to support up to 20 local authorities to improve their social work practice and decision-making, enabling them to work more effectively with the most vulnerable children and their families. This is in addition to the almost £270 million the Department for Education has invested in our Innovation and Improvement programmes since 2014. There have been over 25 programmes in local authorities in London and over 90 in local authorities across England to help innovate and re-design service delivery to achieve higher quality.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>We are improving access to apprenticeships for people with learning difficulties or disabilities. For example, we have introduced legislation which allows the minimum English and maths requirements for apprenticeships to be adjusted to entry level 3 for a defined group of people with a learning difficulty or disability. This change will allow more people to benefit from the opportunities available through apprenticeships and work.</p><p>Our Pacesetter project is working with local partners to test our policy approaches and deliver tangible progress towards growing numbers of apprentices with learning difficulties or disabilities. Pacesetters include councils, a school and the learning disability charity Mencap, who have themselves hired a number of apprentices with learning difficulties or disabilities.</p><p>The Apprenticeship Diversity Champions Network has been developed to provide insight and guidance on best practice in how to make sure that apprenticeships are undertaken by people from a diverse range of backgrounds, and all members make a commitment themselves to increasing diversity when they join. The network aims to inspire and influence the behaviour of other employers to attract, recruit and support more people from underrepresented groups into apprenticeships. This includes people with disabilities, people who identify as LGBT+, women in science, technology, engineering and maths and members of black, Asian and minority ethnic communities. For example, Health Education England, working with members including Northumberland, Tyne and Wear NHS Foundation Trust, have a supported apprenticeship scheme focussing particularly on learners with autism. The National Autistic Society has been invited to attend the network’s next meeting.</p><p>Our funding system is intended to encourage the take-up and likely completion of apprenticeships by particular groups, including people with learning difficulties or disabilities. The system is also intended to recognise where additional support is necessary, through extra funding where the costs of supporting an apprentice are higher, and making sure that these costs are met by government and not by the employer.</p><p>Our communications and guidance products aim to encourage employers to hire apprentices with a learning difficulty or disability and to demonstrate to people with learning difficulties or disabilities, such as autism, that apprenticeships are an option for them.</p><p>We have integrated the Department for Work and Pensions’ Disability Confident campaign into the apprenticeship recruitment service so that the Disability Confident logo is displayed on apprenticeship vacancies for campaign-registered employers.</p><p> </p>
