The PSR is addressing these kinds of scams as part of a programme of work announced in December 2016, following a Which? Super-complaint on the issue.</p><p> </p><p>In April 2018, the PSR established a steering group of consumer representatives and banks to draft an industry code to help protect consumers against these kinds of scam. The code was published for consultation in September 2018, with the intention for the final code to be in place in 2019. The aim of this code is to reduce the incidence of APP scams, and it will set out rules on how industry should reimburse consumers in certain scenarios.</p><p> </p><p>It is right that industry takes the necessary steps to protect consumers against this kind of fraud. The Government supports the work the PSR is driving forward to tackle these kinds of scams in conjunction with industry, consumer groups and other regulatory and government bodies.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government is committed to a diverse market of prison operators and competition for custodial services remains an important way of achieving that and driving quality of operations and innovation across the system. Her Majesty’s Prison and Probation Service will not be bidding in the competition to operate the new prisons at Wellingborough and Glen Parva but will instead provide a ‘public sector benchmark’, against which against which potential operators’ bids can be assessed. It is right that the prison service focuses on getting the basics right in prisons, however where bids do not meet sufficient quality or value for money thresholds it will act as the provider.</p><p> </p><p>HMPPS will soon launch a competition to establish a framework of prison operators, from which the operator for the new prison at Wellingborough and potentially further prisons will be selected. This process will enable us to undertake rigorous financial and operational assessment of bids put forward by any existing or potential operator to ensure they are of sufficient quality, value and affordability.</p><p> </p><p>As set out on the 26 June at the Justice Select Committee and in the 2017 manifesto, we remain committed to building up to 10,000 modern and decent prison places. The Chancellor reaffirmed this commitment in the Budget, announcing that we intend to build the new prisons at Wellingborough, which is due to open in 2021 and Glen Parva, which we expect to open in 2022, through public capital.</p>
