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

star this property answer text <p>We have not estimated the number of homes that would be built on a local authority basis, following the abolition of the Housing Revenue Account borrowing cap. We estimate that nationally, local authority delivery will increase to around 10,000 homes per year. Local authorities in South Yorkshire, and elsewhere, are able to use their new borrowing freedom to start building new homes to meet the needs of their communities immediately. We want to see them seize this opportunity and build a new generation of council housing.</p><p>In respect of the additional £2 billion of grant funding for Affordable Housing from 2022 to 2029, it is not possible to determine the distribution across regions until bids have been approved. Homes England do publish allocations data on the current 2016-2022 Affordable Homes Programme outside of London. As of March 2018, 1,361 affordable homes have been allocated grant funding in South Yorkshire.</p><p>Local authorities in South Yorkshire were successful in securing £5.8 million of Housing Infrastructure Fund (HIF) Marginal Viability Funding, which will unlock up to 730 homes. The final funding amounts are subject to a funding clarification process that is currently underway. We are currently working with Sheffield City Regions Combined Authority to develop their HIF Forward Funding bid. We cannot say if this funding will support homes in South Yorkshire until their bid is submitted in the coming months.</p>

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
