star this property answer text <p>The Government has assessed the impact of the two-child policy from an equality and human rights perspective throughout its development and in preparation for its implementation. Therefore, we consider that we have met our obligations under the Public Sector Equality Duty and ensured compliance with the Human Rights Act 1998, the Equality Act 2010 and the UN convention on the Rights of the Child.</p><p> </p><p>The Government’s view is that providing support for a maximum of two children in Universal Credit and Child Tax Credit, ensures fairness between claimants, and to those taxpayers who support themselves solely through work. Families on benefits should face the same financial choices when deciding to grow their family as those supporting themselves solely through work. A benefits structure adjusting automatically to family size is unsustainable.</p><p> </p><p>The Government continues to take action to help families with the cost of living, including raising the national living wage, reducing the UC earnings taper, raising the income tax personal allowance, introducing tax-free childcare and 30 hours a week of free childcare for 3 and 4 year olds.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) is responsible for regulating medical devices in the United Kingdom.</p><p> </p><p>The Agency is aware of the French National Agency for Medicines and Health Products’ (ANSM) announcement restricting the use of certain types of breast implants. This does not include all macro-textured breast implants on the French market.</p><p> </p><p>France has said its approach is a precautionary measure as part of their ongoing investigation into Breast Implant Associated- Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma. This action goes further than the recommendations of ANSM’s own expert panel in February 2019.</p><p> </p><p>Based on an analysis of the scientific evidence available and independent expert clinical advice received, it was confirmed there was no new evidence which would change the United Kingdom Regulator’s view, because there was nothing to indicate any increased risk to patients with these implants over what is already known.</p><p> </p><p>At this time, the MHRA’s position is consistent with all other European Union member states.</p><p> </p><p>The MHRA’s advice continues to be, if people have any questions about their implants, they should speak to their implanting surgeon or general practitioner.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Government is clear that unfavourable payment practices is a serious issue. That is why we have a range of measures in place with the aim to address the imbalance in market power between parties, increase transparency and encourage better payment practices through culture change.</p><p> </p><p>The Payment Practices and Performance Reporting Requirement requires large businesses to report biannually on their payment practices and performance. Businesses must publish this information on gov.uk, providing transparency in payment practices and making payment behaviour a reputational, board room issue. To date over 13,000 reports have been submitted.</p><p> </p><p>Government continues to support the Prompt Payment Code as a best practice in payment standards. Last year the Secretary of State announced a new, tough and transparent compliance regime to ensure the Code is rigorously enforced. The Secretary of State also announced that he had appointed the Small Business Commissioner to the Prompt Payment Code Compliance Board.</p><p> </p><p>Last year Government launched a Call for Evidence to assess what further steps and intervention may be needed to create a responsible payment culture. A full response will be published shortly and will contain a full package of policy measures.</p><p> </p><p>At Spring Statement Government announced that it will require large company’s Audit Committees to review payments practices and report them in their annual accounts. This will elevate payment practices to Board level and increase transparency.</p>
