answer text <p>Claimants with earnings from self-employment are required to report them to DWP on a monthly basis. These earnings are reported on a simplified 'cash accounting' basis, which asks for the total income from receipts into the business and details of payments out of the business under defined categories during the assessment period. We assess net earnings after deducting business expenses. The requirements were designed to be as simple as possible in order for self-employed claimants to easily report their earnings and monthly reporting allows Universal Credit to be adjusted on a monthly basis.</p><p> </p><p>Where claimants are in the 12-month grace period or are gainfully self-employed and earning above the Minimum Income Floor (MIF), the single taper rate acts to ensure that they are better off working and earning more under Universal Credit, removing the cliff edges from the old legacy benefits system.</p><p>We announced at Autumn Budget 2018 that all new gainfully self-employed claimants can, from September 2020, access a 12-month exemption period from the MIF. This change will assist all gainfully self-employed claimants to grow their earnings, prepare and adjust for the application of the MIF. In 2022/23 it will allow 130,000 self-employed people the space to grow a successful business when moving on to Universal Credit.</p>

answer text <p>In 2016/17, there were 206 incidents where Spice was found in South Yorkshire prisons, and in 2017/18, there were 154 incidents. Data for finds of psychoactive substances in the months since March 2018 will be available on GOV.UK in July 2019, as part of the Annual HMPPS Digest. The number of drug finds reflects not only the number of attempts to convey illicit substances into our prisons but also our success in finding these drugs.</p><p> </p><p>Psychoactive substances are a game changer for prison safety, and this statistic reinforces the scale of the challenge. We are addressing this head on, and have invested £7 million in modern technology, including phone blocking technology and improved searching techniques. We have made it a criminal offence to possess psychoactive substances in prison and trained more than 300 sniffer dogs specifically to detect these drugs.</p><p> </p><p>We are also adopting pioneering approaches such as our ‘Drug Recovery Prison’ pilot at HMP Holme House, which is leading the way in tackling the supply of drugs and putting offenders on a long-term path to recovery.</p>

answer text <p>I am grateful for the time that the Committee has spent looking at prison healthcare. We are considering carefully the Committee’s recommendations and will respond in due course. Tackling drugs is vital to ensure safe and productive prison environments and this includes preventing prisoners developing substance misuse issues.</p><p>To do this, we have formed a Drugs Taskforce, working with law enforcement and health partners across government. The Taskforce is developing a national drugs strategy, underpinned by advice and guidance that will support the whole of the estate to restrict supply, reduce demand and build recovery. Restricting access to illicit drugs in prison is crucial to preventing substance misuse. We are working with the police to catch and convict criminals who smuggle contraband into prisons, and exploring additional security measures and new technology to stop these incursions. Reducing demand for drugs in prison also requires us to get the incentives right. We have developed the concept of ‘Incentivised Substance Free Living’, where prisoners who can demonstrate – through regular compact-based and random mandatory testing – that they are not misusing drugs can experience better living conditions. This will support prisoners to make good decisions and prevent them developing issues with substance misuse. We are also testing innovative approaches through our £9 million joint Ministry of Justice and Department of Health and Social Care Drug Recovery Prison pilot at HMP Holme House.</p><p> </p>

answer text <p>The UK strongly condemns any language or actions that could stir up hatred and prejudice. Our sustained support to the Palestinian Authority (PA) is underpinned by a Memorandum of Understanding which requires the PA to commit to the principle of non-violence and to tackle language and avoid actions that could incite violence or hatred. The UK continues to urge the Palestinian leadership to uphold this principle. President Abbas restated his commitment to the two-state solution on September 27 at the UN General Assembly.</p> more like this
