star this property answer text <p>​The British Government has noted the recent report from the China Human Rights Organisation and continues to be concerned by restrictions on freedom of religion and belief, including reports of forced conversions, in Burma. The UK, working with the EU and the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation, secured a UN Human Rights Council Resolution on 27 September 2018 that called for the amending or repealing of discriminatory provisions of the &quot;protection of race and religion laws&quot; in Burma covering religious conversion, interfaith marriage, monogamy and population control. Our Ambassador met the Burmese Minister for Religious Affairs on 9 August 2018, and underlined the importance of interfaith dialogue.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The figures in HL15607 were shown in cash terms. The table below shows the same table in April 2019 prices, adjusted using the Consumer Prices Index and rounded to the nearest £5.</p><p> </p><p>Table 1: Total take-home pay, Child Benefit, and tax credits in April 2019 prices for a family with two adults, one of whom is aged 25 or over and works 35 hours per week and receives the National Minimum Wage or National Living Wage</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p>Year</p></td><td><p>£ per annum</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2010-11</p></td><td><p>20,275</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2011-12</p></td><td><p>20,150</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2012-13</p></td><td><p>19,970</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2013-14</p></td><td><p>19,925</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2014-15</p></td><td><p>19,885</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2015-16</p></td><td><p>20,290</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2016-17</p></td><td><p>20,670</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2017-18</p></td><td><p>20,400</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2018-19</p></td><td><p>20,185</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2019-20</p></td><td><p>20,135</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p>The table above is true for a family with a particular set of circumstances. On average real household disposable income per person is 6.7% higher than at the start of 2010 – meaning people have more money to spend than they did in 2010. Since unemployment has fallen 48% since 2010, families are also significantly more likely to have at least one person in work now than in 2010.</p><p> </p><p>The government has introduced policies to increase take home pay since 2010 including;</p><p> </p><ul><li><p>Increasing the Work Allowance in Universal Credit by £1000 from April 2019. This would provide up to an additional £630 per year for households with children and for people with disabilities;</p><p> </p></li><li><p>Doubling the amount of free childcare available to working parents of 3 and 4 year olds, saving families using the full 30 hours around £5,000 per year. This is in combination with increasing the amount that working families can claim back in childcare to 85% of their registered childcare costs each month under UC, compared to 70% on the legacy system. For families with two children this could be worth up to £13,000 a year;</p></li></ul><p> </p><ul><li><p>Increasing the Marriage Allowance from £1,190 in 2018-19 to £1,250 in 2019-20. The benefit is therefore worth up to £250 in 2019-20. It will continue to increase each time the Personal Allowance is increased.</p></li></ul>

star this property answer text <p>Gambling as an addiction has serious implications for Defence; as a security risk, financially, a mental health issue and as a wider welfare impact on Service personnel; families; veterans and their families. Gambling addiction is difficult to target and deal with effectively as most activity is carried out when Service personnel are off duty or at home. However, the Ministry of Defence (MOD) is working to raise financial awareness among Service personnel; all three Services provide links on their welfare sites to several financial advisory sites including MoneyForce, Joining Forces Credit Union, the Services Insurance and Investment Advisory Panel and GamCare, a national charity and leading provider of information, advice and free counselling for the prevention and treatment of problem gambling.</p><p> </p><p>The MOD has not funded or conducted any research on problem gambling among Service personnel or veterans. We are aware that in 2017 the Forces in Mind Trust (FiMT) supported a gambling study by Swansea University, the preliminary findings of which suggested UK veterans may be at an increased risk of developing gambling problems than non-veterans. In 2018, FiMT awarded Swansea University £279,503 to undertake a survey to understand and explore the levels of gambling participation and attitudes to gambling in ex-Service personnel.</p><p> </p><p>The requested information on the numbers of betting terminals and gaming machines on MOD property and the revenue generated and beneficiaries is not held centrally and could be provided only at disproportionate cost.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>
