The net cost to the Department of administering the national insurance pension scheme is therefore zero.</p><p>At the start of each financial year, costs are calculated on the basis of latest workload forecasts and the most recent audited unit costs. The amount to be recovered is then agreed with HMRC.</p><p>Costs recovered from the National Insurance Fund in relation to administration costs for the national insurance pension scheme were as follows:</p><p> </p><p>Year Amount</p><p>£ millions</p><p>2007-08 504.5</p><p>2008-09 391.9</p><p>2009-10 390.3</p><p>2010-11 348.6</p><p>2011-12 221.6</p><p>2012-13 252.6</p><p>2013-14 246.9</p><p>2014-15 209.9</p><p> </p><p>Prior to 2007 the charge was not calculated on a benefit by benefit basis and therefore we do not hold any details of costs recovered from the National Insurance Fund relating specifically to the national insurance pension scheme.</p>

star this property answer text <p /> <p>The Department’s policy on whether to retain or destroy a file is to follow the cross-governmental guidance provided by The National Archives (TNA) where the length of retention is allocated based on legal or business requirements and historical importance. The result is that files are kept for different lengths of time depending on their content. <br><br>Those files where another government department is the policy lead or which contain minimal or duplicated content are kept for the shortest period before destruction. This period could be up to 10 years. Those which contain papers relating to issues such as legislation, major policies or notable events may be kept for up to 25 years with some files being transferred to TNA following a review of their importance in line with policy and their value for future historical research. These arrangements have been in place since 1982, with the most recent review of procedures having taken place in 2010.</p><p /> more like this

The guidance on fuel cost elasticity is set at a decrease of 0.3% in traffic for a 1% increase in fuel cost. This value is based on a number of independent studies of transport demand. This is the value used in the National Transport Model and published in Road Transport Forecasts 2013 (see <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/road-transport-forecasts-2013" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/road-transport-forecasts-2013</a></p><p> </p><p>paragraphs 1.34 and 1.35 on page 14).

star this property answer text <p> </p><p> </p><p>This case raises issues of constitutional significance, including upholding Parliament's intentions for the Freedom of Information regime and the Government's ability to protect information in the public interest. Litigation initiated by <em>The Guardian</em> newspaper has taken place over a four year period including hearings in the Upper Tribunal, the High Court, and the Court of Appeal. Eight government departments have had to work together on the Government's response, at a total cost of £274,481.16 (exc VAT). These costs encompass all costs billed by the Treasury Solicitor, including Counsels' fees and disbursements. If we are successful in the next stage of legal proceedings the Government would seek to recover a substantial proportion of these costs from the Guardian.</p><p> </p> more like this

Submission into the scanning surveillance system is a voluntary activity that has no regulatory aspect. However the ‘Changes to the delivery of Veterinary Scanning Surveillance in England and Wales, December 2013' document published on the AHVLA website does consider the impact of the changes, recognises that there are negative impacts (e.g. some farms will be further from an AHVLA Post Mortem facility) but concludes that these are outweighed by the benefit of having stronger national centres of excellence and a better coordinated network of support from private practices.</p><p> </p>
