star this property answer text <p>The Government recognises the significant contribution generated by music and the evening economy to the UK. We have reformed entertainment licensing and planning policy guidance, making it easier for well-established music and cultural venues to operate. Government has confirmed that it will work with all Mayoral Combined Authorities and Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs) to develop Local Industrial Strategies, which are locally-led and agreed with Government. The national Industrial Strategy provides a policy framework against which Local Industrial Strategies will be assessed. Government recognises the value that creative industries bring to local places, and engages with LEPs in promoting the growth of these sectors through Local Industrial Strategies - for example by developing a Connected Growth Toolkit to support LEPs in designing local strategies.</p> more like this

However, the servicer of these mortgages must be regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). This means that customers are protected by the FCA’s principle of Treating Customers Fairly; their Mortgage Conduct of Business rules; and customers have recourse to the Financial Ombudsman Service.</p><p> </p><p>The Treasury has also worked closely with the FCA to consider how to remove the regulatory barriers that might prevent some customers from accessing better deals.</p><p> </p><p>The FCA are now consulting on changes that will move the required affordability assessment from an absolute test to a relative one.

Providers of PRS must comply with the PSA Code of Practice which is approved by Ofcom, which includes specific protections for vulnerable consumers.</p><p> </p><p>The PSA has the power to take robust enforcement action against companies that breach their Code. In serious cases, the PSA Code Adjudication Tribunal may impose sanctions which can include ordering refunds to be paid to affected consumers, prohibition of the provider from providing services and fines of up to £250,000 for each breach of the Code.</p><p> </p><p>The PSA has recently consulted on draft proposals to strengthen the regulation of phone-paid services offered on a subscription basis. The PSA considered risks to consumers as part of the consultation including the specific risk of harm to vulnerable consumers. The consultation closed in May and the PSA will publish its response later this year.</p>

He also hosted a ministerial Quad meeting last month to discuss implementation of the Hodeidah agreement and next steps in the political process. I welcome reports over the weekend that the Houthis have begun their withdrawal from Hodeidah.
