The Governor has also said, there could be considerable net costs to taxpayers of further delaying the start of a sale. The government is clear that the mis-selling of financial products is wrong and those businesses affected should be appropriately compensated through the Financial Conduct Authority’s redress scheme.</p><p> </p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>We have taken a number of steps to increase the take-up of family mediation. From 3 November last year the first single session of mediation is publicly funded in all cases where one of the people involved is already legally aided. The ‘First Stop: Family Mediation’ campaign which ran between January and March this year was designed to raise awareness of the benefits of family mediation. The campaign saw an increase of 340% in the number of visitors to the Family Mediation Council (FMC) website and a 45% increase to the ‘find a mediator’ page on their website. We will continue to look at ways in which family mediation can be promoted as a quicker, cheaper and more effective ways for parties to resolve disputes over an application through the court.</p><p>We are working with the mediation sector and regulators to investigate how we can strengthen out of court agreements (or ‘memorandum of understandings’) to encourage people to mediate. .</p><p>We will also consult with all relevant stakeholders to look at ways in which new family mediation contracts can be improved to help encourage more parties to participate in family mediation.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>Electricity distribution network charges vary by region and reflect the costs of running the network in that area and the number of consumers that those costs are spread over. Moving away from this ‘cost-reflective’ approach would weaken the local accountability of the network operator in ensuring expenditure is fully justified, in turn weakening downward pressures on network costs overall. In addition, a national price for electricity distribution would mean lower network charges in some areas, but increases in others. There are fuel poor consumers throughout GB, including in the areas that could be expected to see higher bills as a result of such a change.</p><p>Any decision on whether to pursue this further could therefore only sensibly be considered on the basis of robust and evidence-based analysis<em>. </em>Ofgem is currently working to inform the issue, and the Government will consider its analysis carefully. It will also be important to take full account of the final conclusions of the energy market investigation which is currently being undertaken by the Competition and Markets Authority. Its provisional findings favour more locational transmission pricing.</p><p>To help protect domestic and business consumers in the North of Scotland specifically, Government has already introduced the Hydro Benefit Replacement Scheme. It provides an annual assistance amount of over £50m to consumers in the North of Scotland. The cost of providing this discount is recovered from consumers across the whole of Great Britain.</p><p> </p>
