star this property answer text <p>Under the old State Pension, there was a basic State Pension, based on the number of years of employment, and an earnings-related element (additional State Pension). From 1978 until April 2016 it was possible for employees and employers to contract-out of the additional State Pension (SERPS and, from 6 April 2002, State Second Pension) on condition that the employer provided a pension of, at least, a statutory minimum.</p><p> </p><p>Prior to 1988 contracting-out was restricted to Defined Benefit schemes and there was no individual choice. Until April 2012 it was possible to contract-out by joining a Defined Contribution workplace pension scheme or a personal pension scheme which met certain conditions instead. Contracting-out for salary-related Defined Benefit schemes remained open until 5 April 2016. Contracted-out through a salary-related workplace pension scheme meant that the employee and employer paid lower National Insurance contributions and, in doing so, the employee would receive a lower (or no) additional State Pension. However, they would be receiving a workplace pension instead.</p><p> </p><p>An individual’s basic State Pension is not affected. Separate rules apply if an individual is a member of a salary-related pension scheme before 6 April 1997. These rights, known as the Guaranteed Minimum Pension, cannot be taken before age 65 (men) or 60 (women). Contracting-out finally ended on 6 April 2016, and this means that all employees now pay the same rate of NI.</p><p> </p><p>The specific information requested is not readily available and to provide it would incur disproportionate cost.</p>

The responses to this consultation showed that the regulations were working as intended. The results of this consultation will feed into the wider review of requirements for Carbon Monoxide alarms that was announced in April 2018. This review will consider if the regulations should be extended to include all fuel types as well as all tenures</p><p>In England the regulations require that private landlords install a carbon monoxide alarm in any room having a solid fuel heating appliance. Private landlords are also required to ensure that the alarms are in working order on the first day of the tenancy. Failure to comply with the regulations can result in a penalty of up to £5,000</p><p>The Scottish Carbon Monoxide alarm regulations are a devolved power and it would be for the devolved administration in Scotland to provide details of any assessments they have made of their regulations.</p>

The Capacity Market secures the electricity capacity required to meet peak demand in a range of scenarios.

These targets are based on advice from National Grid and our Panel of Technical Experts, which uses the analysis in the Future Energy Scenarios.</p><p> </p><p>With regard to the distribution network companies, Ofgem’s regulation takes account of potential increases in demand. In addition, BEIS and Ofgem published the Smart Systems and Flexibility Plan in July 2017.

star this property answer text <p>Distribution Network Operators are investing up to £24.6bn over their current price control (2015-2023) on their networks, including in meeting additional demand. Ofgem have begun consideration of the next price control for the network companies beyond 2023, which will take into account economic growth and the increase in electric vehicles (EVs). There are flexibility mechanisms built into these price controls to enable network companies to respond to unexpected changes.</p><p>In July 2017, Government launched its Smart Systems and Flexibility Plan, along with Ofgem, which enables new technologies to increase capacity and the energy system to manage new sources of demand more efficiently. As part of this, smart charging measures are included in the Automated and Electric Vehicles Act which means that Government can now set standards so all new EV chargepoints installed are smart enabled. This will provide benefits to consumers and reduce the demands on the networks.</p><p>Finally, as outlined in the Road to Zero strategy, the Government launched the EV Energy Taskforce on 11 June. The taskforce will consider what further actions should be taken so that the energy system is prepared for the uptake of electric vehicles.</p>
