star this property answer text <p>Given the complex international nature of sovereign debt, we continue to believe that internationally-agreed approaches are the most effective way to improve sovereign debt transparency and sustainability. Sovereign governments are ultimately responsible for their own borrowing, and the UK supports the IMF and World Bank’s efforts to improve the capacity and capabilities of sovereign borrowers to fulfil this responsibility. The UK also recognizes that official and private creditors have an important role to play in securing debt transparency and sustainability. The G20 agreed Operational Guidelines for Sustainable Financing for official creditors in 2017. The UK is now working through the G20 to monitor an industry-led initiative by the Institute of International Finance (IIF) to improve the transparency of lending of private creditors.</p><p>UK-based lenders are also already subject to extensive prudential disclosure requirements under UK law. The Capital Requirements Regulation requires firms to disclose the geographic distribution of their credit exposures, including those to central banks and governments, if the loans are material.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Last year, the Government initiated a discussion on payment methods through a Call for Evidence on Cash and Digital Payments in the New Economy. This sought to gather evidence from industry and the public alike on how changing preferences for cash and digital payments impact on different sectors, regions and demographics.</p><p> </p><p>A formal Summary of Responses to this Call for Evidence was published in May 2019. This response set out the Government’s commitment to supporting digital payments, whilst safeguarding access to cash for those who need it. It also highlighted that the Treasury would set up and chair a Joint Authorities Cash Strategy Group, made up of regulators and the Bank of England, to facilitate further co-ordination between the authorities and provide comprehensive oversight of the overall cash infrastructure.</p><p> </p><p>The Government-established Payment Systems Regulator (PSR) is closely monitoring developments in ATM provision, including those that are free-to-use. The PSR regulates LINK, the scheme which runs the UK’s ATM network, and has used its powers to hold LINK to account over LINK’s commitments to preserve the broad geographic spread of free-to-use ATMs.</p><p> </p><p>LINK has put in place specific arrangements to protect free-to-use ATMs more than 1 kilometre away from the next nearest free-to-use ATM. LINK has also enhanced its Financial Inclusion Programme by tripling the funding available for free-to-use ATMs in the most deprived areas of the UK.</p>

star this property answer text <p>We do not collect information on the spending by schools on individual pupils with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND). Support for those with more complex SEND are funded through the local authorities high needs budgets.</p><p>Our total high needs funding allocations since 2015 are:</p><table><tbody><tr><td><p><strong>Year</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Amount</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2015-16</p></td><td><p>£5.2 billion</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2016-17</p></td><td><p>£5.3 billion</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2017-18</p></td><td><p>£5.8 billion</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2018-19*</p></td><td><p>£6.1 billion</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2019-20*</p></td><td><p>£6.3 billion</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p>The amounts between financial years are not directly comparable due to structural changes in the high needs funding baseline.</p><p>*Both of these years include £125 million additional funding, which was announced in December 2018.</p><p>The total level of local authorities’ high needs gross expenditure, not including place funding, can be found in the section 251 outturn data, and these are as follows:</p><table><tbody><tr><td><p><strong>Year</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Amount</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2015-16</p></td><td><p>£3.96 billion</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2016-17</p></td><td><p>£4.21 billion</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2017-18</p></td><td><p>£4.50 billion</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2018-19*</p></td><td><p>£4.46 billion</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p>*These years use high needs budget data, rather than outturn data, as we have not yet published the high needs outturns.</p><p>The majority of high needs funding is directed towards pupils with education, health and care plans (EHCP). The number of pupils each year with plans can be found in the school census data, which is published in January. The numbers for each year are as follows:</p><table><tbody><tr><td><p><strong>Year</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Number</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2015</p></td><td><p>240,163</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2016</p></td><td><p>256,315</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2017</p></td><td><p>287,290</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2018</p></td><td><p>319,819</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p>The number of pupils with SEND in 2019 has not yet been published. This figure is an amalgamation of EHCP and Statements of SEND, but this does not include Learning Difficulty Assessments (LDA), and so is not an accurate comparison year-on-year. LDAs were phased out with the introduction of EHCPs, and the last LDAs were phased out of the system in 2016.</p><p> </p>
