star this property answer text <p>I refer the noble Lord to the most recent statutory report under section 2 of the Loans to Ireland Act 2010, which was laid in Parliament on 15 October 2018. The report shows that the outstanding principal is £3,226,960,000, with repayments due in tranches from 15 April 2019 until 26 March 2021. Interest payments have been paid twice-yearly since 15 December 2011 and payments received so far total £483,359,983.93. The government expects the loan to be repaid on time and in full.</p><p> </p><p>[1] The statutory report is available here: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/report-under-section-2-of-the-loans-to-ireland-act-2010-1-april-2018-to-30-september-2018" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/report-under-section-2-of-the-loans-to-ireland-act-2010-1-april-2018-to-30-september-2018</a></p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Department for International Development has not directly commissioned studies on the impact of water shortages on migration patterns from the southern hemisphere to northern Europe.</p><p>We recognise climate change and increasing water shortages can combine with other factors to influence migration decisions and therefore fund analytical work to improve the understanding of the impacts of climate change in developing countries. Examples include our work with the Natural Environment Research Council on the Future Climate for Africa Programme and our support to the World Bank’s Water Global Practice, which has produced analyses on the effects of water shortages, including migration. We are also building the evidence base to better understand why people migrate as part of our efforts set out in the 2015 UK Aid Strategy to tackle the root causes of migration.</p><p>In 2011, the Government Office for Science commissioned the Foresight Report on <em>Migration and Global Environmental Change</em> which analysed how human population movements across the world could be affected by global environmental changes.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Office for Budget Responsibility is independent of Ministers and any views published are their own.</p><p>Since November 2016, the OBR has not assumed any one particular outcome to EU exit negotiations but has based its forecasts on broad-brush assumptions regarding Brexit that are consistent with a range of possible outcomes, as well as judgements about the economy following the referendum.</p><p>In its October 2018 forecast, the OBR have included a two-year transition period. After this they assume leaving the EU will reduce trade intensity which affects both imports and exports with a broadly offsetting impact on net trade. In its latest forecast, the OBR also revised down its forecast for world trade growth, contributing to a downward revision in UK export market growth in the near term. These factors contribute to the decline in exports as a share of GDP.</p><p>Going forward, the Government will continue to provide support for UK exporters through the Department for International Trade by encouraging more businesses to export, providing information, advice and practical assistance on exporting, connecting UK businesses to overseas buyers, and putting finance at the heart of our offer through UK Export Finance.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The policy to provide support for a maximum of two children in Child Tax Credit (CTC) and Universal Credit (UC) was originally announced at Summer Budget 2015 and legislated for in the Welfare Reform Act 2016. The government chose to implement the policy from April 2017 to ensure households were aware of the policy before choosing to have third or subsequent children. HMRC also provided information in leaflets to all claimants renewing their CTC claim since 2016 and a leaflet has also been included in the CTC new claim pack since the policy came into force. Since August 2016 high level messaging about the policy has been available on GOV.UK.</p> more like this

There are 637,000 fewer children in workless households than in 2010 and unemployment is at a record low.</p><p> </p><p>We are also supporting the finances of low-income families by decreasing the taper rate and increasing work allowances in Universal Credit, so people can earn more without losing their benefits.
