star this property answer text <p>The Department for International Development does not have a traditional bilateral aid programme with poverty reduction as the main objective in Indonesia. Instead, the UK Climate Change Unit (UKCCU)’s work in Indonesia is focused on making a difference to a critical global public good – the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.</p><p> </p><p>So-called ‘virginity testing’ is cruel and degrading to women forced to undergo it.

star this property answer text <p>In 2014, the Government transferred regulatory responsibility for consumer credit from the Office of Fair Trading to the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), including regulatory responsibility for Credit Reference agencies (CRAs). CRAs are a key part of the credit market and enable lenders to assess whether an individual has the ability to repay any credit that is offered.</p><p>CRAs can advise consumers to add a Notice of correction (of up to 200 words) to their credit report explaining any special circumstances. The content of the Notice should be taken into account alongside the information on the consumer’s report.</p><p>Furthermore, the Credit Industry Fraud Avoidance System (CIFAS) is an independent fraud prevention service which has developed a system used by the credit industry and other organisations to prevent fraud. If a lender believes it may have detected a fraud or attempted fraud, a CIFAS marker may be put on an individual’s credit reference file. No one should be refused credit just because of a CIFAS marker, and these markers are not included in a credit score. It is intended to warn lenders and to protect innocent consumers.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The department has taken significant steps to further strengthen academies’ accountability. This is reflected in the year on year updates to the Academies Financial Handbook which strengthen accountability and transparency in the sector. The department introduced new rules in April 2019 for the declaration or approval of related party transactions. Our requirements are the most robust processes for related party transactions in any sector in the country.</p><p>The level of transparency for academies is higher than for local authority schools. The vast majority of trusts operate with a cumulative surplus and at the same time, over half a million pupils now study in ‘good’ or ‘outstanding’ sponsored academies that typically replaced underperforming local authority maintained schools.</p><p> </p> more like this
