answer text The Government is committed to public service pensions which are fair to workers and fair to other taxpayers. The tapered annual allowance is focussed on the highest earning pension savers, to ensure that the benefit they receive is not disproportionate. The Government is aware of specific concerns raised by some high-earners impacted by annual allowance tax charges. All public sector pay and pensions policies are kept under constant review and discussed with relevant departments. more like this

answer text The government published the Review of Gaming Machines and Social Responsibility Measures in May. This set out measures to strengthen protections around gaming machines, including cutting the maximum stake on B2 machines from £100 to £2, and on online gambling and gambling advertising. It also set out action on treatment and support for those who experience harm, including initiatives to improve the evidence on treatment needs and effectiveness, expand access to existing services and strengthen the voluntary system for funding support. We take gambling-related harm very seriously and will work closely across Government and with the Gambling Commission to build on the actions outlined in the Review. more like this

answer text <blockquote>There is no specific framework that government uses to decide whether a digital project should be completed in-house or contracted out.</blockquote><blockquote> </blockquote><blockquote>Government uses the principles of the HMT Green Book guidance, supplementary guidance (such as the <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/the-green-book-appraisal-and-evaluation-in-central-governent/agile-digital-and-it-projects-clarification-of-business-case-guidance" target="_blank">Agile digital and IT projects</a>), and the 5 case model to scrutinise the costs and benefits of different options to deliver a particular project, including management, commercial and financial aspects. When relevant, some of these options may refer to in-house provision whereas others may refer to outsourcing.</blockquote><blockquote> </blockquote><blockquote>The preferred option will be selected on the basis of value for money and capacity to meet the project objectives.</blockquote> more like this
