answer text <p>The Government's consultation 'Tackling unfair practices in the leasehold market' ran for eight weeks from 25 July to 19 September 2017. The consultation received 6,075 responses; 5,701 via an online survey and 374 via email and post. Of those responding to the online survey providing background information, 5,336 respondents said they were private individuals, of which 2,790 answered a follow up question confirming they were a leaseholder living in a house, with 1,699 confirming they were a leaseholder living in a flat and 431 identifying themselves as a freeholder. 332 respondents identified themselves as replying to the consultation on behalf of an organisation.</p><p>A full breakdown of responses by type and question can be found at Annex A of the Government response, published on 21 December 2017 available at <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/tackling-unfair-practices-in-the-leasehold-market" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/tackling-unfair-practices-in-the-leasehold-market</a>.</p><p>The Government also ran a separate technical consultation, ‘Implementing reforms to the leasehold system’ during 15 October 2018 to 26 November 2018, and is still analysing the responses. As part of our consultation questions we did not ask the respondent to identify whether they were a leaseholder. However, we received 1030 responses which were completed as personal views.</p>

The Area is prosecuting more serious and complex cases as evidenced by a 21% increase in homicide, a 23% increase in offences against the person and a 62% increase in sexual offences cases. During this period, minor motoring cases have fallen by 52% in the Area. This followed changes to the list of specified offences made in 2012 which transferred responsibility for prosecuting many low level motoring offences back to the police.</p>

answer text <p>The Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) continues to liaise with the local authority and regional schools commissioner team to monitor improvements in key stage 4 provision in the borough and identify local need. The ESFA also meets regularly with SK College Group to discuss the college’s offer of A level provision at their Knowsley campus. For 2018/19 academic year the college made 68 offers to study academic A levels at its Knowsley campus. Twelve learners progressed to enrol and attend at the college. However, due to low numbers it was financially unviable to deliver at the Knowsley Campus, so the learners access A Level provision on the St Helens Campus via bespoke transport.</p><p>For 2019 the college has committed to continue to promote the development of A level provision at the Knowsley campus and this is being marketed in their prospectus for 2019/20. They now have in place specific branding alongside targeted promotional activities including: a 2019 school leaver prospectus distributed to all local schools, supermarkets, convenience shops, community centres, and libraries; an A level advert in the college adult course guide in December which is distributed to 65,000 local homes across Knowsley and surrounding Liverpool areas; digital ad vans promoting the A level offer prior to college open evenings; and planned and targeted social media campaigns, local press promotions and railing banners. Furthermore, there are specific A level events for local school career advisers and school liaison teams are working directly in feeder borough schools to promote the A level offer.</p>

For each court closure, we conducted a public consultation exercise and considered the responses we received very carefully.

answer text <p>The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency staff attended the scene of the collision on 16<sup>th</sup> September 2017, and recognised that tyre damage had occurred. In November 2017, the Department for Transport became aware of a Police report relating to the collision that cited tyre age as an issue and immediately commissioned an independent examination of the tyre. This reported in December 2017 and a further forensic examination was commissioned. This reported in October 2018 and Ministers were informed of the findings in early November 2018.</p><p>In parallel with these investigations specialist research was contracted in January 2018 to examine the wider issue of tyre ageing. This is expected to report in spring 2019.</p><p>Given the emerging evidence on tyre safety, the Government announced on 26 February that it will consult on options to ban older tyres from use on buses, coaches, heavy goods vehicles and minibuses to help keep road users safe.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The decision to consult was taken before the Coroner’s Inquest into the tragic collision on 16 September 2017. It was based on the emerging body of evidence, collated by the Department for Transport, over several years including that obtained from vehicle inspections and the important new research commissioned in January 2018.</p><p>The Department also commissioned an independent examiner in relation to the tyre implicated in the collision of 16 September 2017. The Department became aware of new evidence implicating tyre ageing directly in the cause of the collision on 21 February 2019, evidence with which the Department's independent examiner concurred. The analysis from the independent experts included as testimony at the inquest formed an important contribution to the Department's emerging evidence base.

answer text <p>Information about waiting times for Personal Independence Payment (PIP) appeals to the First-tier Tribunal (Social Security and Child Support - SSCS) is published at:</p><p>www.gov.uk/government/collections/tribunals-statistics.</p><p> </p><p>Average waiting times<sup>1</sup> for PIP<sup>2</sup> appeals in Merseyside<sup>3</sup> between April 2018 to March 2019 (the latest 12 month period for which data are available) is included in the table below:</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p>Month</p></td><td><p>Waiting time (in weeks)<sup>4</sup></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>April 2018</p></td><td><p>34</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>May 2018</p></td><td><p>35</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>June 2018</p></td><td><p>35</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>July 2018</p></td><td><p>34</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>August 2018</p></td><td><p>34</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>September 2018</p></td><td><p>36</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>October 2018</p></td><td><p>37</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>November 2018</p></td><td><p>37</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>December 2018</p></td><td><p>38</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>January 2019<sup>p</sup></p></td><td><p>37</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>February 2019<sup>p</sup></p></td><td><p>38</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>March 2019<sup>p</sup></p></td><td><p>36</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p><sup> 1 </sup>Waiting time is interpreted as average clearance time – time taken from appeal receipt to outcome</p><table><tbody><tr><td><p><sup>2. </sup>Personal Independence Payment (New Claim Appeals), which is replacing Disability Living Allowance was introduced on 8 April 2013, also includes Disability Living Allowance Reassessed cases</p></td></tr><tr><td><p><sup>3. </sup>SSCS data are recorded by the office that dealt with the case, and if the case went to oral hearing, the location of the tribunal hearing, normally the hearing venue nearest to the appellant’s home address. Cases relating to the Merseyside region are attributed to the following SSCS venues: Birkenhead, Liverpool &amp; St Helens</p></td></tr><tr><td><p><sup>4. </sup>Includes all cases cleared both with and without a tribunal hearing, in line with the published statistics</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p><sup>p </sup>Provisional data which are subject to change.</p><p> </p><p>Waiting times are calculated from receipt of an appeal to its final disposal. An appeal is not necessarily disposed of at its first hearing. The final disposal decision on the appeal may be reached after an earlier hearing had been adjourned (which may be directed by the judge for a variety of reasons, such as to seek further evidence), or after an earlier hearing date had been postponed (again, for a variety of reasons, often at the request of the appellant). An appeal may also have been decided at an earlier date by the First-tier Tribunal, only for the case to have gone on to the Upper Tribunal, to be returned once again to the First-tier, for its final disposal.</p><p> </p><p>In order to respond to a general increase in appeal receipts, HM Courts &amp; Tribunals Service (HMCTS) has been working with the judiciary to reduce waiting times for appeals and has appointed additional judges and panel members. This includes 250 judges across the First-tier Tribunal, 125 disability qualified members and up to 230 medical members. In addition, more PIP appeals are being listed per session and case-management “triage” sessions have been introduced, with the aim of reducing the time taken for appeals to reach final determination. All these measures will increase the capacity of the tribunal, with the aim of reducing waiting times for appellants.</p><p> </p><p>In addition, we have recently launched a new digital service with a view to enabling speedier processing of appeals and provide a better service for all parties to the proceedings. Information on the new digital service can be found at:</p><p>https://www.gov.uk/appeal-benefit-decision/submit-appeal</p><p> </p><p>Latest figures for PIP (to December 2018) indicate that since it was introduced, 3.9 million decisions have been made. Of these, 10% have been appealed and 5% have been overturned at tribunals.</p>
