star this property answer text <p>Long-standing policy has always been eligibility for income-related (means-tested) social security benefits depends on a person’s immigration status in the UK. Claimants must be exercising a legal right to reside and be habitually resident before they are eligible to claim income related benefit. This is assessed through the Habitual Residence Test (HRT), which has been in place since 1994.</p><p /><p>Information on the number of JSA claims which failed the Habitual Residence Test are available in <a href="https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/639597/analysis-of-migrants-access-to-income-related-benefits.pdf" target="_blank">“Analysis of Migrants’ Access to Income-Related Benefits”</a></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p>Information on Universal Credit contracts which have a recorded failed Habitual Residence Test are as follows: 2016/2017 – 800 failed claims, 2017/2018 – 7,600 failed claims and 2018/2019 – 30,700 failed claims, this reflects the increasing caseload on UC since it’s rollout. UC data supplied is derived from unpublished management information, which was collected for internal Departmental use only and has not been quality assured to National Statistics or Official Statistics publication standard. The data should therefore be treated with caution. UC cases may be closed for other reasons (for example, “ineligible”) but may have failed the HRT – these are not captured in the estimates above.</p><p> </p><p>Information for JSA claims from 2017/18 is not readily available and to provide it would incur disproportionate cost. No data was recorded on UC data for HRTs prior to 2016/17</p>

star this property answer text <p>In the 2017 Spring and Autumn Budgets, the Government committed £3.9 billion in new capital investment for the National Health Service. £2.4 billion of this has been allocated to over 150 sustainability and transformation partnership (STP) schemes to modernise and transform buildings and services across the country. In the Spending Review later this year, the Government will consider proposals from the NHS for a multi-year capital plan to support the health service as outlined in the NHS Long Term Plan.</p><p> </p><p>Separate from the STP capital programme, the Department has also supported a variety of other investments in new NHS facilities. Under Section 40 of the NHS Act 2006, the Secretary of State may give financial assistance, such as loans or Public Dividend Capital to any NHS foundation trust.</p><p> </p><p>The Papworth Hospital and the Alder Hey Children’s Hospital were completed in 2018 and 2015 respectively under the Private Finance Initiative (PFI). The Royal Liverpool Hospital and Midland Metropolitan Hospital started off as PFI schemes and are now being completed with public capital.</p>
