unstar this property answer text <p>The maximum amount a claimant can receive as a new claim advance payment is 100 per cent of their total indicative Universal Credit award. The claimant can decide the length of repayment period when they request the advance. This can be up to a maximum 12 months. The rate of repayment is decided by dividing the total advance amount by the agreed repayment period.</p><p>Affordability is managed by ensuring the recovery rate is not more than the equivalent of 40 per cent of the standard allowance and help is available for those struggling to meet the recovery rate once recovery begins. In many cases, because claimants choose to repay advances over many months, advance repayments constitute less than 40% of a standard allowance. In exceptional circumstances, recovery can be deferred for up to 3 months from the start of the recovery period.</p><p>Advances are not loans; they are an interest free advance payment of benefit, available to help people who need immediate financial support, which is then recovered over an agreed period. The Department has taken a number of steps to ensure that advances meet the needs of claimants and that recovery arrangements are personalised and reasonable. From October 2019 we are reducing the maximum rate of deductions to 30 per cent and from October 2021 we are increasing the maximum recovery period for advances from 12 to 16 months.</p>

Our programmes do not directly target specific sub groups of marginalised people eg; Christian women, but we do target marginalised communities from a range of disadvantaged backgrounds, including Christian women who are at risk of this terrible practice.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>There is no World Trade Organisation tariff on steel – each country sets its own tariff levels as part of being a member of the WTO. The European Union’s most favoured nation (MFN) tariffs for steel, which apply to all third country WTO members without a preferential arrangement, are either zero or very low, and will remain so. In a no deal scenario UK exports to the EU will face the same tariff situation as they currently do, as the EU’s MFN tariffs for most steel products faced by third countries are already bound at zero – meaning that there would be no tariff impact on UK steel exports to the EU. The EU currently also apply safeguard tariffs (at 25%) on steel imports from most third country trade partners, where they fall outside the current tariff rate quotas, to protect the EU steel sector from unforeseen surges in imports. It will be for the EU to decide how these safeguards should apply to the UK in the event of a no-deal exit.</p> more like this
