star this property answer text <p>A Child Trust Fund account was opened for each child born between 1 September 2002 and 2 January 2011, with a Government contribution deposited into the account. The total government contribution to each account differed dependent on a variety of factors, such as family income, disability and age. Junior ISAs are voluntary, tax-free savings accounts and therefore not all children hold a Junior ISA. For these reasons, it is not appropriate to compare the balances of these two types of account.</p><p> </p><p>All FCA fine income, after enforcement costs, is passed to HM Treasury and forms part of the governments total revenues to be used for the benefit of the tax paying public.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>A large proportion of funding from the NPIF – established at Autumn Statement 2016 and expanded to £31bn at Autumn Budget 2017 – has already been allocated to its four target sectors: transport, housing, digital communications and R&amp;D. Breakdowns within these sectors can be found on page 44 of the 2017 Autumn Budget document. Specific projects are selected through a variety of mechanisms that are tailored to achieve programme goals and ensure high value for money.</p><p> </p><p>Funding allocations from the NPIF are not specifically made by region. However the NPIF is intended to fund projects that help to boost productivity and prosperity throughout the UK and across regions. For example, at the Autumn Budget 2017, the government made an allocation specifically benefitting the North East, announcing £337m of new funding from the NPIF to replace rolling stock on the Tyne &amp; Wear Metro. It also established a new £1.7bn Transforming Cities Fund. This funding will be widely distributed, with £840m of per capita funding to be transferred to the six Mayoral Combined Authorities with directly elected mayors, and £840m open for competition for transport projects in cities. These announcements and others demonstrate a commitment to invest to improve productivity in all UK regions.</p>

star this property answer text <p>All Green Deal Providers are required by legislation to follow the Green Deal Code of Practice, which is designed to ensure that all Green Deal Participants operate fairly and transparently, deliver good customer service and provide appropriate redress mechanisms for customers. Where such Providers fail to adhere to the Code of Practice, sanctions may be imposed by the Secretary of State. Providers may be subject to audit by the Green Deal Oversight and Registration Body to assess their compliance with the Code of Practice. The Green Deal Provider referred to in Question 120003, Home Energy and Lifestyle Management Systems (HELMS), was subject to such a sanction in 2015, following an audit and investigation process. The Green Deal Code of Practice requires that Green Deal Installers providing photovoltaics are certified against, and comply with, the requirements of the Microgeneration Certification Scheme and the Microgeneration Installation Standard: MCS 023.</p><p>There have been numerous complaints made about HELMS in relation to Green Deal Plans. The cases are complex and take time to resolve. The department is working with relevant parties to seek a satisfactory resolution to them as soon as possible.</p>

star this property answer text <p>All wild birds are protected under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981, which provides a powerful framework for the conservation of wild birds, their eggs, nests and habitats. The Government is committed to ensuring the protection afforded to wild birds of prey is effectively enforced. There are strong penalties for offenders, including imprisonment.</p><p> </p><p>Raptor persecution is one of six national wildlife crime priorities. Each wildlife crime priority has a delivery group to consider what action should be taken and develop a plan to prevent crime, gather intelligence on offences and enforce against them. The Raptor Persecution Priority Delivery Group (RPPDG) focuses on the golden eagle, goshawk, hen harrier, peregrine, red kite and white tailed eagle.</p><p> </p><p>The RPPDG has recently produced raptor persecution maps, which show the distribution of confirmed incidents of raptor persecution including shootings, trappings, poisonings and nest destruction across England and Wales over a five year period (2011-2015). The maps will be a significant intelligence tool to tackle wildlife crime; they will help the police gain a better understanding of where the problem areas are, and target these crime hotspots with increased levels of enforcement. The maps can be viewed at: <a href="http://www.magic.gov.uk/" target="_blank">http://www.magic.gov.uk/</a></p><p> </p><p>The National Wildlife Crime Unit, which is part funded by Defra, monitors and gathers intelligence on illegal activities affecting birds of prey and provides assistance to police forces when required.</p>
