answer text <p>Good progress has been made. The industry is making extensive preparations in the areas of meter procurement; in building and testing their systems, and in staff recruitment and training. Consumers are already benefiting from the roll-out – around 1.5 million meters are operating under the Programme – putting consumers in control of their energy use, bringing an end to estimated bills, and helping people to save energy and money.</p><p> </p> more like this

answer text <p>The new entitlement to 30 hours free childcare is intended to support working parents with the cost of childcare and enable them, where they want, to return to work or to work additional hours.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>To meet the principle of designing a system that is simple for parents, the Government’s intention is that eligibility for 30 hours free childcare should broadly align with Tax-Free Childcare. In particular both parents, or the single parent in such households, will need to work the equivalent of 8 hours per week at the national minimum wage. Further detail on eligibility will be provided during passage of the Childcare Bill.</p><p> </p> more like this

answer text <p /> <p>For claimants of Jobseeker’s Allowance, Income Support, income-related Employment and Support allowance or Pension Credit, half of any contributions towards an occupational or personal pension scheme are deducted from any income from employed earners’ employment taken into account when calculating entitlement. In the case of self-employed earners, half of all premiums paid into a personal pension scheme are deducted from the claimant’s income taken into account.</p><p> </p><p>For Universal Credit, earned income is only taken into account after allowing for 100% of pension contributions to appropriate schemes. Universal Credit is therefore intended to incentivise more people on a low income to put money aside to save for their later lives.</p><p> </p> more like this
