star this property answer text <p>The taper is the rate at which Universal Credit is reduced to take account of earnings. It is specifically for in work claimants and linked to earnings to incentivise work, and those in work to earn more. Universal Credit has a single taper of 63 per cent so payments reduce in a transparent and predictable way as earnings increase. Universal Credit is a means tested benefit, and income other than earnings, such as pensions, is taken fully into account in the assessment of Universal Credit. This is consistent with how legacy means tested benefits such as Employment and Support Allowance, Jobseeker’s Allowance and Income Support treat pension income. Therefore it would not be consistent to extend the earnings taper to pensions income and doing so would also undermine the incentives to work for people of working age.</p> more like this

The Government will maintain this comprehensive approach. The Government’s Tobacco Control Plan for England, published last year, commits to reducing smoking in 15 year olds from 8% in 2017 to 3% in 2022 and the Tobacco Control Delivery Plan, published in June 2018 sets out the various activities different agencies are taking to meet the aims of the plan.</p> more like this
