star this property answer text <p>A) The UK Government plans its spending on official development assistance (ODA) using independent GNI estimates published by the ONS and forecasts published by OBR at that time. The official definition of GNI used to calculate spend on ODA is as follows: Gross national income (at market prices) represents total primary income receivable by resident institutional units: compensation of employees, taxes on production and imports less subsidies, property income (receivable less payable), gross operating surplus and gross mixed income. B) Spending on defence is measured against GDP based on figures published by the OECD.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>We have committed to increase funding for the BBC World Service to £34 million in 2016/17 and £85 million a year up to 2019-20. As a provider of accurate, impartial and independent news the BBC World Service helps to strengthen democratic accountability and governance, meaning that a significant portion of the funding provided can be classified as Official Development Assistance (ODA). ODA is subject to approval via the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development’s (OECD) Development Assistance Committee (DAC), which oversees international ODA classification. We will work with the BBC and DAC to make the case for classifying up to £28m of the £34m in 2016/17 as ODA, and up to £70m per year in three remaining years of programme as ODA spend.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Institutional investors, including pension funds, are a promising source of investment in UK infrastructure. Institutional investors are particularly relevant for infrastructure as they are looking for longer term investments to match defined liabilities that are realised when claims are made for pension or insurance purposes.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The government is encouraging greater involvement of institutional investors in UK infrastructure. The Pensions Infrastructure Platform (PIP) was announced in 2011 to help make infrastructure investment more accessible to pension funds. Earlier this year, 7 pension funds agreed to invest £100 million each. In February 2014 the PIP launched its first equity fund with a cap of £500 million, of which £250 million was committed, and has made a number of investments. The government also set up the Insurers’ Infrastructure Investment Forum to give members of the Association of British Insurers (ABI) a direct communication link to government, exploring ways to maximise opportunities for insurance fund managers to invest in UK infrastructure. In December 2013, six insurers – Aviva, Friends Life, Legal &amp; General, Prudential, Scottish Widows and Standard Life – said they will work alongside partners with the aim of delivering £25 billion of investment in UK infrastructure in the next five years.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>
