On average, tenants benefitting from improvements under these regulations will see their energy costs fall by £180 per year.</p><p> </p><p>Due of the comparatively small sample size used to model those private rented sector properties with F and G energy efficiency ratings, we are unable to reliably break the above subset of properties down by region or council authority area.</p> more like this

answer text <p>Government departments make use of non-disclosure agreements (NDAs) when structuring their engagements on preparations for leaving the EU, which is a crucial component of planning. It is for departments to determine the manner in which engagement with stakeholders takes place. Given the sensitive nature of some discussions, there may be limited circumstances in which departments have used NDAs to enable those conversations, thereby reaching more stakeholders than would otherwise be the case.</p><p>As I said in my previous answer, this department has put a limited number of NDAs in place in the course of its work. The department’s use of NDAs is limited to standard contractual arrangements with those providing services to support our work and are necessary to protect commercial considerations.</p><p> </p> more like this

answer text <p>(a) Information about the volumes and outcomes of appeals to the First-tier Tribunal (Social Security and Child Support) (SSCS) including (a) Personal Independence Payment (PIP) is published at: www.gov.uk/government/collections/tribunals-statistics</p><p>HM Courts &amp; Tribunals Service (HMCTS) does not record data based on constituencies. SSCS appeals are listed into the hearing venue nearest to the appellant’s home address. The published Tribunals Statistics CSV files provide information about the outcomes of PIP appeals for individual hearing venues including Leeds, where appeals from constituents living in the Leeds area would be heard.</p><p>(b) This information is not held centrally. The Tribunal hears appeals generally against decisions on entitlement to benefit, or its rate of payment. Some Employment and Support Allowance (ESA) decisions may feature an element of assessment against work capability criteria, while other ESA decisions may not. HMCTS does not, therefore, hold the information requested.</p><p>Latest figures indicate that since PIP was introduced, 3.5 million decisions have been made up to June 2018, and of these 9% have been appealed and 4% have been overturned at Tribunals. For ESA, 3.5m ESA (post Work Capability Assessment) decisions have been made between April 2014 and March 2018 and of these 8% have been appealed and 4% have been overturned at tribunals.</p>
