unstar this property answer text <p>In line with HM Treasury (HMT) guidelines, we are required to recover the full cost of providing all of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office's (FCO) consular services, including the provision of Emergency Travel Documents (ETDs). Fees introduced in April 2016 took account, for the first time, of the full cost of providing consular services and forecast income over the Spending Review period. Consular services are funded through income received from the Consular premium (£14.93 on each standard passport issued) and fees charged for specific services provided to British nationals abroad (for example, the issue of ETDs) and legalisation services provided in the UK. Fees are differentiated between types of service. The fee for providing any individual service is the same throughout the overseas network.</p><p>We conduct an annual review of consular fees to ensure that the fees charged are appropriate and reflect the costs of providing consular services. The costs attributed to providing consular services fluctuate from year to year depending on the overall cost to Government of operating the overseas network and how these are shared amongst the different Government Departments and FCO services using the platform. The Consular Fees Model then further allocates costs across four categories of service (providing assistance, ETDs, notarial acts and legalisation of documents). For example, the increased cost in 2017-18 reflects changes to how the Consular Fees Model makes use of staff activity recording which should allow for more consistency in future, but does make comparison with prior years less relevant.</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p>Year</p></td><td><p>Total Cost of Issuing ETDs</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2013-14</p></td><td><p>£7,493,409</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2014-15</p></td><td><p>£5,046,453</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2015-16</p></td><td><p>£4,632,489</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2016-17</p></td><td><p>£8,257,673</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2017-18</p></td><td><p>£12,918,549</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p>

unstar this property answer text <p>We are not currently migrating any claimants from legacy benefits to Universal Credit. Claimants only move from existing benefits to Universal Credit through natural migration when they experience a significant change in their circumstances that triggers a new claim to benefit. Their entitlement is then calculated on the rules of their new benefit. This is a long-established principle which we maintain for Universal Credit.</p><p> </p><p>Subject to Parliamentary approval of the Managed Migration regulations, we will be spending £3.1 billion on transitional protections to ensure that no one loses out at the point of transition. This includes those currently receiving Severe Disability Premium (SDP). These regulations will prevent these claimants from moving over before the managed migration process, and provide financial protection for those who have already moved over.</p><p> </p><p>We do not hold data on all disabled people receiving all disability premiums that have moved onto Universal Credit; however, published data shows that of the 42,000 people who were on Employment Support Allowance (ESA) and started a claim on Universal Credit Full Service within one month of closing their claim between May 2015 and February 2018, 15,000 were on ESA (Income Related) with Enhanced Disability Premium (EDP) and/or SDP.
