star this property answer text <p>The Government is committed to ensuring an efficient and effective firearms licensing system and to achieving full cost recovery for the police and Home Office. Fees for firearm and shotgun certificates issued by the police were last increased in 2015. The increase followed a public consultation which included an impact assessment setting out estimated costs, which can be found on gov.uk. The fee levels were calculated with a view to enabling police forces to move closer to full cost recovery when a police-led online licensing system is introduced. The police began trialling an on-line application portal in selected forces late last year. Delays with introducing online licensing make it difficult to accurately identify costs at this time but we will carry out a comprehensive review of the fees in 2020.</p><p>Applications for licences to possess prohibited firearms, for approved shooting clubs, and museums with firearms collections, are administered by the Home Office and Scottish Government. The Policing and Crime Act 2017 created a power to charge new fees for these licences. We sought views on proposals for the new fees in a public consultation in 2017. The consultation was accompanied by an impact assessment, which set out the estimated net costs of the system. We have reviewed the proposed level of fees in discussion with groups representing licensed firearms holders and we intend to announce the outcome shortly.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Railways Pension Scheme was established in 1994, replacing the previous British Rail scheme. Contributions in to the Railways Pension Scheme are split according to a shared cost arrangement, whereby employers (the Train Operating Companies) pay 60% and employees pay the remaining 40%. Train Operating Companies are and continue to be responsible for paying employer pension contributions during a franchise term, and in the vast majority of franchises, have been on full risk for changes to those contributions during their franchise term since the Railways Pension Scheme was established.</p><p>In the new East Midlands franchise, the operator is exposed to no additional risks or demands when compared to current franchisees. Indeed, the new franchise includes a risk sharing mechanism with the government, which reduces the risk that the operator will be exposed to. In this, the operator retains the risks that it is able to manage, which are the contributions which cover employee’s pension rights arising from future service.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government currently has no plans to require all aircraft to display a notice detailing that they are licensed for such operations.</p><p> </p><p>Any individual, organisation or company that intends to undertake commercial air transport is required by law to hold an Air Operator Certificate (AOC) and an Operating Licence (OL). It is an offence to operate a commercial air transport flight without an AOC or OL. There is no requirement for the AOC to be displayed in the aircraft. However, it must be available to be inspected upon request by passengers and authorities along with the appropriate licence, aircraft registration document and maintenance certificate.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>It is ultimately the responsibility of the pilot in command of each flight to make sure it is operated legally. As part of their initial training a pilot studies, and is examined on, air law. This covers the regulations to be met to carry fare paying passengers. A private pilot will therefore know that they do not have the necessary approvals to undertake a commercial flight.</p><p> </p><p>The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has advised me that they do not believe that the introduction of a notice within the aircraft would be a deterrent to illegal activity taking place unless all passengers are aware of the legal requirements and potential impact of illegal public transport flying. Many aircraft can be used for both commercial and non-commercial flights and so on many occasions could be legally flown without the need for an AOC.</p>
