star this property answer text <p>As announced at Autumn Budget 2018, payment of Income Support and the income related elements of Employment and Support Allowance and Jobseeker’s Allowance will continue for two weeks after a claim for Universal Credit has been made, effective from July 2020, benefitting 1.1 million households. Claimants will therefore receive one two week run-on payment when being migrated to Universal Credit. This builds upon the similar two week run-on of Housing Benefit that was announced at Autumn Budget 2017, and which was introduced in April this year.</p><p> </p><p>New claimants to Universal Credit can also apply for a Universal Credit Advance in their first month if they need some financial support until the first regular payment of Universal Credit is made. We have previously increased the maximum amount available for advances from 50 per cent to 100 per cent of the total award, and increased the repayment period from 6 months to 12 months. The Autumn Budget 2018 also extended the recovery period to 16 months from October 2021, and, from October 2019 reduces the maximum rate at which deductions can be made from a Universal Credit award from 40% to 30% of the standard allowance.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The risks associated with the use of Dichloromethane (DCM) are well documented. Breathing in vapour can produce narcotic effects including drowsiness, headache, unconsciousness and death. DCM has also been classified by the <em>International Agency for Research on Cancer</em> as a category 2a carcinogen.</p><p> </p><p>As the health effects can be fatal, the use of DCM as a paint-stripper is restricted under the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals Regulation (REACH) and professional users must be trained and competent in its safe use. For all workplace uses of DCM, employers must also adhere to the requirements of the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations (COSHH) to prevent or adequately control employee exposure.</p><p> </p> more like this
