star this property answer text <p> </p><p> </p><p>The Ministry of Justice has reduced the overall cost of air travel by almost half since 2009, and our total spend on all travel has fallen by more than 40 per cent in the same period – a saving of more than £9m.</p><p> </p><p>Furthermore, this year, the Justice Secretary toughened up the rules to ban first and business class travel for Ministers and officials in the department other than in exceptional circumstances where this is required to meet business need.</p><p> </p><p>Overseas travel makes up a small proportion of the Department's overall travel requirement. Flights and travel by Eurostar are booked through our contracted supplier, and whilst the MoJ records data on transactions, it does not hold details of the cost or destination of individual trips centrally. The cost of breaking down all travel in the ways requested would be disproportionate, as managers across the Department would have to create a breakdown of every trip taken, itemised by the different kinds of expenditure.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government carried out an analysis of the costs and benefits of providing leave for mothers and fathers in the impact assessment which accompanied its consultation on the administration of shared parental leave which was published in February 2013. This can be found at: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/110692/13-651-modern-workplaces-shared-parental-leave-and-pay-impact-assessment2.pdf" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/110692/13-651-modern-workplaces-shared-parental-leave-and-pay-impact-assessment2.pdf</a></p><p> </p><p>The impact assessment reflects the fact that there are costs for both the Exchequer and business associated with the taking of maternity and paternity leave. Business costs include, for example, where employers provide occupational maternity or paternity schemes which go beyond the statutory minimum, and the costs associated with recruiting staff to cover a period of absence.</p><p> </p><p>In relation to Exchequer costs, the Government collects data on the total amount of statutory paternity pay and statutory maternity pay paid to employees by employers and uses this to estimate the numbers taking paternity/maternity leave and the size of average, or average weekly, claims. These figures represent the cost to the Exchequer rather than business as statutory payments can be reclaimed by the employer. The latest available figures for the costs to the Exchequer are as follows:</p><p> </p><p><strong>Maternity pay and maternity allowance</strong></p><table><tbody><tr><td><p><strong> </strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Number of claimants commencing in year 2011/12</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Total claimed</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Average claim (2010/11)</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Maternity Pay</p></td><td><p>355,000</p></td><td><p>£2.2 billion</p></td><td><p>£5,890</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p><strong>Source: Expenditure is from employer returns to HMRC and is the average amount recovered by employers.

star this property answer text <p>The Government did not withdraw funding from CE&amp;SDL. In 2007, at the request of CE&amp;SDL, the Learning and Skills Council (LSC) transferred the contract for skills provision from CE&amp;SDL to a successor legal entity, Total People. CE&amp;SDL continued to operate when the contract was transferred to Total People but did not directly receive any further funding nor did it acquire funding as a subcontractor. It was dissolved as a company in April 2014. The Skills Funding Agency, as the LSC's successor, continued to fund Total People, and still does so today.</p><p> </p><p>Both the earliest and latest performance data available demonstrate a mixed picture.
