answer text <p>The Government estimates that only 1 in 5 landlords would pay more tax as a result of the restrictions to landlords’ finance cost relief, once it is fully implemented. When introduced, the government did not expect this measure to have a significant impact on either house prices or rent levels.</p><p>The restrictions came in to effect in April 2017. The most recent Office for National Statistics (ONS) index of private housing rental prices shows that rental prices increased by 0.9% in the 12 months to September 2018. A year ago (the 12 months to September 2017) the annual rate of growth was 1.6%.</p> more like this

answer text <p>All social homes should be provided and maintained to a decent standard. Progress in the social sector has been made. In 2016, 13 per cent of homes were non-decent compared with 20 per cent in 2010. We are using the Social Housing Green Paper to consider whether the Decent Homes Standard is demanding enough and delivers the right standards for social housing alongside other tenures. In respect of the East Midlands, in June 2018 we announced a strategic partnership between Homes England and East Midlands Housing, which will see 748 additional affordable homes built in the region by March 2022.</p> more like this

answer text <p>Our probation staff do a vital and challenging job reforming offenders and protecting the public.</p><p>In 2017, HMPPS benchmarked the pay ranges within the NPS and found them appropriate and in alignment with other public sector workforces. The time taken for new staff to reach the top of their probation pay scale is judged against them acquiring the unique and necessary skills and competencies to be a proficient probation officer. This is not comparable to the time taken to progress in other public sector roles.</p> more like this

answer text <p>Her Majesty’s Prisons and Probation Service (HMPPS) is responsible for the delivery of prison and probation services in England and Wales. These services were first brought together with the creation of the National Offender Management Service in 2004, which became HMPPS in 2017.</p><p>In respect of determining how much money is spent and how funding is determined for prisons/probation, it should be noted that annual budget allocations are set as part of the Ministry of Justice’s annual budget allocation process and subject to any in year movements or organisation restructure changes. These allocations are made on the basis of need and according to Departmental priorities. The allocation of funds for the services provided by HMPPS is carefully planned and prioritised on a regular basis in order to ensure HMPPS is able to continue to deliver its services for all offenders sentenced by the courts for either supervision in the community or custody.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The priorities set out in the Integrated Communities Strategy Green Paper will be supported by £50 million funding over the next two years. This includes funding to support the Integration Areas programme, based on the areas' local delivery plans to address the integration challenges and priorities identified locally. It also includes the new Integrated Communities Innovation Fund and the Integrated Communities English Language Programme, both of which were open to applicants with project proposals where there is evidence of local integration challenges. The assessment criteria for both of these programmes were set out in the programme prospectus published on the GOV.uk website.</p><p> </p> more like this

answer text <p>Domestic abuse is a devastating crime, and we are taking action to make sure survivors get the support they need. My Department has committed £40 million up to 2020 to support victims of domestic abuse.</p><p>Councils have a legal duty to provide assistance to people whom they assess as homeless as a result of domestic abuse, and to provide accommodation to families and others who are vulnerable as a result of fleeing domestic abuse.</p><p>My Department is also carrying out a review of how domestic abuse services are commissioned and funded locally across England. We are working closely with other Departments, the domestic abuse sector and local authorities, to develop sustainable delivery options for domestic abuse services, including refuges.</p><p>We recognise that the needs of those who present as homeless and are victims of domestic violence can be different. That is why we are ensuring that frontline workers receive the relevant training to support these victims.</p><p>As outlined in the recently published Rough Sleeping Strategy, the Department is currently developing the Young Futures Fund. This is a social impact bond programme aimed at supporting vulnerable young people aged 18-24 who are at risk of becoming – or are currently – homeless or rough sleeping.</p>
