answer text <p>Wherever possible the Attorney General’s Office and the Law Officers Departments (the Crown Prosecution Service, the Serious Fraud Office, The Government Legal Department and HM Crown Prosecution Service Inspectorate) let contracts over £10,000 using call-off contracts from frameworks procured by the Crown Commercial Service (CCS). These frameworks include provision for payments to sub-contractors within 30 days of receipt of undisputed invoice.</p><p>Central records are not held for procurements partially, or fully, managed outside the procurement service. To confirm that these contracts include provisions for prompt payment of sub-contractor invoices would require a manual check of all procurement records, which would incur a disproportionate cost.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The Home Energy Conservation Act 1995 (HECA) requires local authorities to prepare and publish reports every two years on their plans to achieve improved energy efficiency in their areas. These are not spending plans, but contain actions, policies, initiatives, grants, match funding and other measures offered in the local authority that encourage home energy efficiency improvements and tackle fuel poverty. Local authorities were last required to report in 2017, and their full reports are available on their websites. The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy will be issuing guidance to local authorities on the content of their 2019 reports shortly.</p><p>Under the Energy Company Obligation local authorities are able to refer low income and vulnerable households for receipt of energy efficiency measures under ‘flexible eligibility’. Obligated energy suppliers can deliver up to 25% of their obligation by installing measures under this mechanism, which could be worth around £560m between now and March 2022.</p>

answer text <p>The British public deserves to have confidence in our democracy and the Government is committed to ensuring that our electoral system is fit for the future.</p><p>Next year, Peterborough and Pendle will be piloting measures to improve the integrity of the postal and proxy vote process. This builds on similar pilots in 2018.</p><p>In addition, the Government is looking to introduce measures which will prohibit party campaigners from handling postal votes, and apply a limit to the number of postal ballots that any one individual can hand in at a polling station. The provisions will be backed up by a new offence, and will make a significant contribution to enhancing the security of postal voting. There is currently a Government supported Private Members’ Bill in the House of Commons looking to introduce this policy.</p><p>The Government is considering the way forward on the other recommendations made by Sir Eric Pickles, a number of which relate to absent voting, and will continue to consider how to improve the integrity of electoral processes more generally.</p><p>The Government is committed to strengthening our electoral processes and enhancing public confidence in the rigour of those democratic processes.</p>

answer text <p>The Places for Growth Programme, within Cabinet Office, seeks to deliver the Government’s commitment to move Civil Service roles and public bodies out of London and the South East of England. This commitment was set out in the Conservative Party Manifesto of 2017 and then restated in the Industrial Strategy White Paper and the Government Estates Strategy (July 2018).</p><p> </p><p>The Cabinet Office is supporting departments and public bodies to identify opportunities to relocate roles to cities across the regions and nations of the United Kingdom. The Programme will provide support and coordination across Whitehall to move roles and organisations to locations that have the skills and capacity to enable organisations and cities to flourish. The Programme is also engaging with city leaders across the UK to understand the local economic and industrial priorities which will inform the decision-making process.</p><p> </p><p>The relocation of Civil Service roles will help to ensure that the administration of central government is better distributed across the whole of the UK. It also will make a contribution to the boosting of growth in each destination location and assist in providing sustainable career paths for civil servants outside London.</p>
