Minister's have engaged with the APPG for Healthy Homes and Buildings, following the publication of their White Paper in October and have noted the Paper’s recommendations. We will continue to engage with the APPG and related stakeholders as we develop policy to build their views into policy. The Department has seen the number of private rented homes failing to meet the Decent Homes Standard fall 15 per cent since 2010 – a record low. <br> <br> We have also seen the number of social homes failing to meet the Decent Homes Standard decrease significantly. Our Department has also dedicated a chapter in The revised National Panning and Policy Framework includes a dedicated chapter on the creation of healthy and safe places. We have also launched the Social Housing Green Paper which asks if we should consider what constitutes a decent home.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Home Office has no plans to introduce digital IDs for migrants seeking to work in the UK. However, as set out in the Government’s White Paper on the future skills-based immigration system published on 19 December 2018, individuals will use online services to demonstrate their immigration status to employers, landlords and other service providers. These online services will enable individuals to view an online record of their immigration status held by the Home Office, and to share it with others, securely and in real time. Online services are being rolled out now to those who hold a biometric residence document, and those who apply to the EU Settlement Scheme.</p><p>A decision on an individual’s immigration status is determined by suitably trained Home Office staff. To ensure that applications for leave to remain and enter are processed as efficiently as possible, UK Visas and Immigration digitally streams applications to the relevant team. Streaming does not determine the outcome of an application; rather it ensures appropriate checks are made against requirements of the Immigration Rules by suitably-trained decision makers. The streaming system drives efficiency by ensuring decision makers have the relevant applications as quickly as possible. It is regularly updated to reflect any changes in policy. Online status services simply surface information based on the immigration product an individual has already been granted.</p>
