star this property answer text <p> </p><p>The funding settlement for the police is a challenging one. However, as the <br>vast majority of forces, including Greater Manchester Police are <br>demonstrating, it is manageable. The latest report from Her Majesty's <br>Inspectorate of Constabulary (Policing in Austerity: Rising to the Challenge <br>July 2013) found that crime is falling and the proportion of officers on the <br>front line is increasing. The Government has protected the police from the <br>additional 2014/15 reductions that were announced in the Chancellor's December <br>Autumn Statement, which means the police will face a 3.3% cash reduction in <br>central Government funding (5.75% in real terms) compared to 2013/14. Once <br>future police precept income is taken into account, the reduction in overall <br>funding is even lower.<br><br>In the Greater Manchester Police force areas, recorded crime fell by 7% between <br>September 2012 and September 2013.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government is supportive of credit unions and has taken a number of steps to assist them, most recently including:</p><ul><li>The Department for Work and Pensions investment of up to £38 million in an expansion project for credit unions. The project aims to help credit unions expand and grow, enabling them to provide financial services to more people.</li><li>From 1 April this year the Government increased the cap on the maximum interest rate a credit union can charge for loans from 2% to 3% per month. This will allow credit unions to make more loans to their members without making a loss. Even if they choose to charge the higher rate of interest the cost of borrowing from a credit union will still be significantly cheaper than many high cost lenders.</li></ul><p>The Government intends that these measures will help the credit union sector go from strength to strength, so it can be a viable option for financial services provision for an even wider range of consumers.</p> more like this
