star this property answer text <p>The introduction of the National Living Wage on April 1<sup>st</sup> marked a pay rise for low paid workers across the UK. Our objective is for it to reach over £9 by 2020. This means an employee aged 25 or over working full-time on the National Minimum Wage will earn over £4,200 a year more by 2020 in cash terms, or £3,800 after taking into account inflation. 2.9m low wage workers are expected to benefit directly, and up to 6m could see a pay rise as a result of a ripple effect up the earnings distribution.</p><p> </p><p>The independent Office for Budget Responsibility estimated that the NLW would have, in their words, only a “fractional” effect on unemployment. And taking into account the NLW, the OBR forecast that employment would rise by 1.1 million by 2020.</p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this

In February the Chancellor laid out his Long-term Economic Plan for Yorkshire and Northern Lincolnshire – a crucial step in building the Northern Powerhouse. The plan aims to raise the employment rate of Yorkshire and Northern Lincolnshire so that over 100,000 more people are in employment there during this Parliament. This will be achieved by backing business start-ups and business growth and investment, through projects like the new, Growth-Deal funded, Incubation and Innovation Centre at Huddersfield University which will support jobs growth in the advanced manufacturing and digital and creative sectors.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Since 2000, HMRC’s tobacco strategy has reduced the tax gap for cigarettes from 22% in 2000/01 to 10% in 2013/14, and the tax gap for hand-rolling tobacco from 61% to 39%. However, tobacco fraud remains a problem and HMRC works with other enforcement agencies to take action against those who participate in the fraud by smuggling and illegally manufacturing, distributing and selling non-UK duty paid product.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Sanctions against those selling tobacco without payment of duty include seizure of products, and cash, financial penalties and a maximum penalty of seven year’s imprisonment. On prosecution, HMRC can also apply for withdrawal of alcohol licenses and orders prohibiting the use of premises for the sale of tobacco for a period of up to 6 months. Additionally, as a result of coordinated activity with other enforcement agencies such as Trading Standards, the police and Immigration Enforcement officers, action can be taken on wider tobacco offences, such as under-age sales , and alcohol and vehicle licensing and immigration offences.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>As reflected in the joint HMRC and Border Force refreshed strategy, ‘Tackling illicit tobacco: from leaf to light’, published on 24 March 2015, we need to get tougher on those involved in tobacco fraud through more effective use of sanctions. We have to deter participation and ensure that we come down harder on those who repeatedly offend.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>To this end, the refreshed strategy commits HMRC to working more across government at all points in the supply chain and to maximising the use and impact of all sanctions available. The published strategy also commits HMRC to undertaking an informal consultation in 2015. This will invite views from other departments and enforcement agencies, legitimate business affected by the fraud and public health organisations on how we can increase the effectiveness of existing sanctions and whether we need new sanctions.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The strategy can be accessed on GOV.UK:</p><p> </p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/tackling-illicit-tobacco-from-leaf-to-light" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/tackling-illicit-tobacco-from-leaf-to-light</a></p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>
