star this property answer text <p>The DWP have no such plans. The Corporate Adviser report (available on request from <a href="https://corporate-adviser.com/" target="_blank">https://corporate-adviser.com/</a>) showed that the vast majority of pension savers are in schemes are able to invest in a range of diversified assets at prices well below the automatic enrolment charge cap. Therefore I do not intend to reduce member protections.</p><p> </p><p>In my 2017 written statement HCWS249 (<a href="https://www.parliament.uk/business/publications/written-questions-answers-statements/written-statement/Commons/2017-11-16/HCWS249/" target="_blank">https://www.parliament.uk/business/publications/written-questions-answers-statements/written-statement/Commons/2017-11-16/HCWS249/</a>) I committed to reviewing the level and scope of the charge cap in 2020, alongside the suitability of ‘combination charges’ (where a percentage charge on funds is combined with a charge on contribution or a flat annual fee), to see whether a change is needed to protect members.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Private Pension schemes which are not used for automatic enrolment are free to invest in funds with performance fees.</p><p> </p><p>To protect savers who are automatically enrolled into a pension scheme and make no choice of investment fund, the Government introduced a charge cap on 6 April 2015. Performance fees have always been subject to the charge cap. However, the way that schemes used for automatic enrolment verify compliance with the charge cap limits the use of most performance fees.</p><p> </p><p>Earlier this year DWP consulted on proposals to extend the ways that pension schemes verify compliance with the charge cap to accommodate performance fees (<a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/defined-contribution-pensions-investments-and-consolidation" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/defined-contribution-pensions-investments-and-consolidation</a>), as long as members invested over the whole year were not charged more than 0.75% of their funds under management or an equivalent combination charge.</p><p> </p><p>Our consultation met with broad support. We are considering next steps, but we do not intend to remove performance fees – in any form – from the automatic enrolment charge cap.</p>

The final report particularly focused on investment choices and charges in drawdown. As a result of its findings, it is introducing or consulting on a number of remedies to protect consumers from poor outcomes and promote competition in the market.

star this property answer text <p>Pension dashboards are a priority for this government and ensuring they are delivered in the interest of consumers is of the upmost importance to us.</p><p> </p><p>That is why the Money and Pensions Service will convene an industry delivery group to oversee the development, delivery and governance of dashboards. On 3 June 2019, the Money and Pensions Service announced that Chris Curry from the Pensions Policy Institute will be the Principal of the industry delivery group, the most senior role within the group. As the Principal, he will identify and agree who in industry will sit on the delivery group to ensure they are best placed to deliver dashboards for the benefit of the consumer. The industry delivery group will be made up of stakeholders from across the industry, consumer groups, regulators and government.</p><p>Once the industry delivery group is up and running, what we expect to see from them in 2019 is to:</p><ul><li>create a roadmap for delivering the supporting architecture;</li><li>start to work with industry on agreeing data standards and schemes readiness to provide data and;</li><li>design a robust governance and security framework.</li></ul><p>In parallel we expect industry to start creating and testing consumer facing dashboards. This will help determine what information is necessary and show how it can be presented in a meaningful way that best meets the needs of the consumer. The industry delivery group must carefully consider how and when the first live dashboards are promoted to consumers.</p><p>We also set out in the government’s response to the consultation on pensions dashboards, the ten design principles which the industry delivery group must adhere to when designing the dashboard system to help ensure the privacy and security of individual’s data. These include that the system must comply with the Data Protection Act 2018 and General Data Protection Regulation and that the system must not include a central database.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The cost of trichinella testing is dependent on the number of pigs slaughtered in any given year. In 2018/19 approximately £565,000 was spent on trichinella testing of which £275,000 was recovered through charges for official controls.</p><p>The current requirements for trichinella testing will be maintained when the United Kingdom leaves the European Union and although the Food Standards Agency works in a dynamic environment with costs dependent on many factors, there is no evidence to suggest that expenditure will change significantly over the next five-year period.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The United Kingdom will maintain the requirements of European Union food safety legislation after leaving the EU. This will ensure that food standards applicable to both domestically produced and imported food are maintained and that UK food businesses continue to apply controls that are widely accepted by other countries.</p><p>It is not possible to determine an exact figure for trichinella costs going forward as this is dependent on the number of pigs slaughtered in a particular year, however, the UK will maintain the current testing requirements and the costs associated with testing should similarly remain the same.</p><p>In financial year 2018/19, the Food Standards Agency (FSA) spent approximately £565,000 on trichinella testing of which £275,000 was recovered through charges for official controls. The FSA will ensure that the resources required to maintain standards and level of testing for trichinella control are available after exit.</p> more like this
