star this property answer text <p>The distributional analysis published alongside Autumn Statement 2014, and at every fiscal event since the government came into office, represents the most complete, rigorous and detailed record of the impact of this government’s policies on households. Unlike other analyses, it looks not only at the effect of direct tax and welfare decisions, but also the impact of changes to indirect tax (such as the freeze to fuel duty) and changes to spending on public services.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>This analysis clearly shows that the richest households have made the largest contribution towards reducing the deficit. In fact, by 2015-16 the net cash contribution to reducing the deficit of the richest 20 per cent will be larger than the net contribution of the remaining 80 per cent put together.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government is carefully considering the full detail of the judgment but our initial view is that the UK’s approach to considering asylum claims based on the grounds of sexual orientation is in line with the ruling. The UK has never required individuals to undergo tests in order to establish their sexuality.</p><p>Existing guidance, which was drawn up in conjunction with the UK Lesbian and Gay Immigration Group, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees and Stonewall, is clear that questions of a sexually explicit nature should not usually be asked. Late declaration of homosexuality is not in itself a reason for refusal but needs to be explained. The Government will shortly be publishing a revised version of its guidance and will ensure that the judgment is fully reflected in it.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Crime, and especially organised crime, does not respect borders. International co-operation is therefore essential. The relationship with the Republic of Ireland is particularly important given its land border with a part of the United Kingdom. The relationships between the law enforcement agencies in Northern Ireland, who are devolved to the Northern Ireland Executive, as well as bodies such as HM Revenue and Customs, Border Force and the National Crime Agency which are UK-wide bodies, and their counterparts in the Republic of Ireland, are very good. A North South cross border organised crime conference was held on 1-2 October involving all the major bodies. This is one example of the desire to develop that co-operation further. There are also plans for a cross border forum on human trafficking and forced labour in January of next year.</p> more like this
