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 /> <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

answer text <p>The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) used media, online channels, direct mail and advertising to inform people about the abolition of the paper counterpart to the driving licence. The DVLA also engaged with trade organisations, vehicle hire companies and wrote directly to 640,000 professional bus and lorry drivers. Information has been sent to around a million drivers each month since February with driving licence renewal reminders. Awareness of the change amongst the public is now over 84%.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The DVLA has a dedicated local rate telephone service in place for drivers who do not have access to the online service. This service is available Monday to Friday from 8am to 7pm and Saturday from 8am to 2pm. Since the paper counterpart was abolished in June 2015, more than 154,000 drivers have used the telephone service. During the same period the online service has been used 1.4m times.</p><p> </p> more like this

answer text <p>The Blue Badge Scheme is primarily designed to help those who are unable to walk, or who have very considerable difficulty walking, whether they are drivers or passengers. We have no plans to extend the scheme to carers or partners. Carers should not use a badge if the badge holder is not travelling with them, so do not need a badge in their own right. The scheme already permits badges to be issued on a case by case basis to people with <em>any permanent disability</em> that affects their walking to the necessary degree. With around 2.6 million badges already on issue, it is important that we ensure the Scheme remains sustainable and protects preferential parking facilities for those with the greatest need.</p><p> </p> more like this
