The media activity includes digital, radio and press advertising to let parents know that the Child Support Agency is changing and to reassure them that they don't need to take any action until they receive a letter. We will evaluate the results of this media activity before confirming plans to run this campaign nationally later this year.</p><p><strong> </strong></p> more like this

star this property answer text <p /> <p /> <p>Carers’ and disability benefits, and the additional State pension, must by statute be up-rated in line with prices. So the increase in those benefits over the last three years has reflected the increase in the Consumer Price Index.</p><p>The basic State pension has been increased with the triple lock (by the highest of average earnings, CPI or 2.5%), and the Standard Minimum Guarantee in Pension Credit has been up-rated in line with the cash increase in the basic State pension. In each of the last three years, this means that the Standard Minimum Guarantee has increased by more than the minimum requirement of the increase in average earnings. The resulting over-indexation of the Standard Minimum Guarantee has been funded through an increase in the savings credit threshold and the associated reduction in the Savings Credit maximum.</p><p>The table indicates the percentage increases in CPI; basic State Pension; average earnings; and the Standard Minimum Guarantee in each of the past three years.</p><table><tbody><tr><td><p> </p></td><td><p>2012/13</p></td><td><p>2013/14</p></td><td><p>2014/15</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>CPI</p></td><td><p>5.2%</p></td><td><p>2.2%</p></td><td><p>2.7%</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Basic State pension</p></td><td><p>5.2%</p></td><td><p>2.5%</p></td><td><p>2.7%</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Average earnings</p></td><td><p>2.8%</p></td><td><p>1.6%</p></td><td><p>1.2%</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Pension Credit Standard Minimum Guarantee</p></td><td><p>3.9%</p></td><td><p>1.9%</p></td><td><p>2.0%</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p><strong> </strong></p><p> </p>

Workers will usually require health surveillance checks.</p><p> </p><p>HSE has recently commissioned a new study to update the evidence base for wood dust exposure and health effects in the UK construction and woodworking industries. The study will run over the next 2-3 years and is being undertaken by the Health and Safety Laboratory with support and assistance from industry.</p>
