star this property answer text <p>The Foreign Secretary visited Burma in September, including Rakhine. The situation is grave. He met Aung San Suu Kyi and told her clear accountability for those responsible for atrocities was critical. The UK initiated the EU’s new sanctions on seven military commanders and a strengthened arms embargo. The Foreign Secretary told the Foreign Affairs Council we would likely need to take further action in response to the UN Fact Finding Mission report. We are now discussing options for further EU sanctions with member states, including whether to sanction the Commander-in-Chief and his Deputy.</p> more like this

The changes to the Immigration Rules pro-vide reassurance that they can continue to build their lives and future in the UK. In addition, given the risks that Afghan interpreters faced, includ-ing threats to safety, as a direct result of their work alongside UK forces on the front line, we believe it was appropriate to provide a fee exemption.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>In both Live Service and Full Service, if a Universal Credit award is reduced to zero, for example as a result of increased earnings, then the Universal Credit award will end.</p><p> </p><p>However, on Live Service if a claimant’s Universal Credit ended because earnings had reduced their award to zero and they subsequently had a change of circumstances that meant Universal Credit would become payable e.g. their earnings dropped, they would return to the same assessment period without having to make a new claim. This is as long as they made contact within 6 months of their previous award ending.</p><p> </p><p>On Full Service, if a claimant’s Universal Credit award ended and they met certain conditions, they will also return to the same assessment period, however, they will need to make a new Universal Credit claim within 6 months of their previous award ending. This new claim is quicker and easier than the one they originally made, as they will only have to tell the department about any changes of circumstances which they have experienced since their previous award ended.</p><p> </p><p>Claimants who become unemployed in a Full Service area also have to make a new claim within 7 days of their job ending (or have a good reason for not doing so) in order for them to be paid for the whole of the assessment period to which they return. If they do not, they will only receive a payment from the point they made their Universal Credit claim until the end of that assessment period.</p><p> </p><p>The changes between Live and Full Service were made for a variety of reasons including:</p><p> </p><ul><li>to simplify the process and allow the vast majority of claimants who have short term breaks in entitlement to Universal Credit to return to the same assessment period rather than just those whose Universal Credit had ended because they had entered work;</li><li>to reduce the possibility of overpayments being made; and</li><li>to ensure claimants re-engage with conditionality as quickly as possible after their job has ended.</li></ul><p>An equality analysis was produced for this change.</p>
