star this property answer text <p>Government is addressing fuel poverty by improving home energy efficiency and making energy more affordable for vulnerable households. Parliament has passed legislation to introduce an energy price cap, protecting households on standard variable and default tariffs in addition to the protection provided by the pre-payment and vulnerable customer safeguard tariffs. Over 2 million low income and vulnerable households will also benefit this winter from the Warm Home Discount, a £140 rebate on their energy bill which we have committed to through to 2021 and all pensioner households receive between £100 and £300 over the winter months through the Winter Fuel Payment.</p><p> </p><p>We have also announced that we will focus all of the £640 million per year Energy Company Obligation on low income and vulnerable households from 2018 to 2022. This new scheme will also include support for innovation, aimed at improving quality and reducing the cost of technologies that will be required to meet the fuel poverty target. Beyond those dates, we committed through the Clean Growth Strategy to extending support for energy efficiency at least at the current level of ECO through to 2028, meaning over £6 billion of investment will be made into home energy efficiency over the next ten years. In addition, we introduced legislation in April this year requiring private landlords to improve the energy efficiency of F and G rated properties, so that all tenants can heat their home at a reasonable cost.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The European Union's Fourth Anti Money Laundering Directive (4MLD) was implemented into UK legislation by 'The Money Laundering, Terrorist Financing and Transfer of Funds (Information on the Payer) Regulations 2017', which came in to force on 26 June 2017. Digital currency exchanges are not regulated for the purposes of 4MLD, so there is no requirement to undertake Customer Due Diligence for trade and investment in digital currencies at present.</p><p> </p><p>The government has however committed to bringing digital currencies into the scope of anti-money laundering and counter terrorist financing (AML/CTF) regulation. Provisional political agreement has recently been reached at EU-level to amend 4MLD to bring digital currency exchange platforms and custodian wallet providers into the AML/CTF regime.</p><p> </p><p>These amendments will require Member States to oblige these entities to conduct customer due diligence when establishing a business relationship, when carrying out occasional transactions of €15,000 or more, when carrying out a transfer of funds exceeding €1,000, where there is a suspicion of money laundering or terrorist financing, and when there are doubts about the veracity or adequacy of previously obtained customer identification data.</p>
