unstar this property answer text <p>On 13 March 2017 <a href="http://www.parliament.uk/business/publications/written-questions-answers-statements/written-statement/Commons/2017-03-13/HCWS528/" target="_blank">Written Statement - HCWS528</a> outlined the implicit consent arrangements for MPs.</p><p>Where explicit consent is needed it can be quickly given in different ways. For example, claimants only need to put a note in their journal to give consent; this is a far simpler and more straightforward process than in legacy systems. Once consent is given, advisers will work with the claimant’s representatives.</p><p>In our response to the Social Security Advisory Committee we agreed to explore options for improving the process of explicit consent in relation to Universal Credit in collaboration with the Committee to consider how current practices could be enhanced and to publish a report on our joint conclusions.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>The Child Maintenance Reforms are designed to support parents to make collaborative child maintenance arrangements where possible. This is why cases within the Child Support Agency are being closed rather than automatically moved to the Child Maintenance Service; at this point parents have the ability to choose the statutory service or make a family based arrangement. Applications to the Child Maintenance Service are subject to an application fee (except where domestic violence is reported) and on-going charges for collect and pay. The Child Maintenance Options service supports parents to make the right choice about child maintenance for their individual circumstances; this may be outside the statutory scheme through a family based arrangement. Our review of charging and its impact was published in August 2017.</p> more like this
