The changes to pension credit due to take effect from 15 May 2019 may mean some households are no longer eligible for the pensioner element of council tax support schemes, but may be eligible for local working-age schemes.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The government fully recognises the important economic and cultural contribution that EU and international students make to the UK’s higher education sector. We want that contribution to continue and we are confident – given the world-class quality of our higher education sector – that it will. We welcome international students and there continues to be no limit on the number who can come here to study, nor any plans to limit any institution’s ability to recruit them.</p><p> </p><p>The UK remains a highly attractive destination for non-EU students, with their numbers remaining at record highs – over 170,000 non-EU entrants to UK higher education institutions for the seventh year running. The UK is a world-leading destination for study, with 4 universities in the world’s top 10 and 16 in the top 100 – second only to the USA. We actively promote study in the UK through the GREAT Campaign and to over 100 countries through the British Council.</p><p> </p><p>That is why the government announced on 21 January that an international education strategy will be produced by the Department for Education and the Department for International Trade in 2019. The strategy will set out the government’s ambition for international education, in which international students play a key role, and plans to support the sector in driving growth in education exports.</p><p> </p><p>In the Immigration White Paper, published on 19 December 2018, the UK government proposed to increase the post-study leave period for international students following completion of studies to 12 months for those completing a PhD, and to 6 months for all full-time postgraduate students and undergraduate students at institutions with degree awarding powers. Going beyond the recommendations set out by the Migration Advisory Committee, these proposals will benefit tens of thousands of international students.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Department is aware of the issues with gas supply at Little Ilford School, which was rebuilt under phase one of the Priority School Building Programme and which opened in its new building in 2016.</p><p>Air was seeping into the gas system, resulting in a lack of gas. Major work was carried out on the school’s gas pipework in summer 2018, which initially resolved the issue until late in the autumn term. The contractor, Wates, carried out testing over a weekend in January and reported blockages in the gas taps, caused by items including pencils and chewing gum. Wates recommended that the faulty taps should be replaced or repaired.</p><p>The faulty gas outlets have now been replaced and repaired by the school and they have been advised to regularly check for blockages to prevent this issue reoccurring. This appears to have resolved the issue, but the Department continues to work with the school to monitor the situation and provide advice and training. Wates will go to the site during half term to ensure that all gas outlets are working correctly before the children return.</p><p> </p>
