answer text <p>Active engagement with civil society was a key element of preparations and plans for the 58th Session of the Commission on the Status of Women. A robust programme of consultation and engagement with a wide range of civil society organisations was put in place by the Government Equalities Office, so enabling them to take account of the views and representations of UK Non-Governmental Organisations in the negotiations at the Commission. These have included representations on the following:</p><p>i. a priorities paper on the post-2015 agenda from the UK NGO CSW Alliance;</p><p>ii. a submission from the Gender and Development Network; and,</p><p>iii. statements on Millennium Development Goals and the post-2015 framework from faith-based organisations and international civil society organisations.</p><p> </p> more like this

answer text <p> </p><p> </p><p>It is still too early in the policy's lifetime to draw any firm conclusions as to its effect, including the number of tenants who have moved home. Rent arrears can have multiple causes and levels tend to fluctuate over time. A longer timeframe than one year is required in order to see whether and, if so, to what extent the removal of the spare room subsidy has impacted on rent arrears levels.</p><p>A consortium led by Ipsos-MORI and which includes the Cambridge Centre for Housing and Planning Research has been commissioned to carry out a two year monitoring of the effects of the removal of the spare room subsidy measure across Great Britain.</p><p>The Homes and Communities Agency reported in February that the median level of arrears among the larger housing associations had fallen from 4.1% in the second quarter of 2013-14 to 3.9% in the third quarter of 2013-14.</p> more like this

answer text <p><em>[Holding Reply: Monday 31 March 2014]</em></p><p>Fire and rescue authorities are best placed to assess and manage their services and do this through integrated risk management planning. Fire and rescue authorities now attend 46 per cent fewer incidents than ten years ago and they allocate their resources according to local risk<em>.</em></p><p>There is still scope for fire and rescue authorities to make sensible savings, e.g. through reforms to flexible staffing and crewing arrangements, better procurement; shared services, collaboration with emergency services and other organisations on service delivery and estates, sickness management; sharing of senior staff, locally led mergers and operational collaborations, new fire-fighting technology, preventative approaches and working with local businesses.</p><p>In his independent review, Sir Ken Knight concluded that fire and rescue authorities need to transform themselves to reflect the entirely different era of risk and demand they now operate in.</p><p> </p>

answer text <p> </p><p><em>[Holding Reply: Monday 31 March 2014]</em></p><p>An independent review for the Firefighters' Pension Committee in 2013 found that, under current practices, firefighters would be operationally fit at age 60 if they maintain a physically active and healthy lifestyle. One in three members of a firefighters' pension scheme is in the New Firefighters' Pension Scheme 2006, which already has a Normal Pension Age of 60. The Public Service Pensions Act 2013 set the Normal Pension Age for the reformed firefighters' pension scheme to be age 60 from 2015, in line with the recommendation from Lord Hutton's independent report.</p><p>A firefighter with a full career earning £29,000 will be able to retire at age 60 with a pension of £19,000 per annum. Firefighters will be able to retire before the scheme's Normal Pension Age with an actuarial reduction.</p><p> </p> more like this
