star this property answer text <p /> <p /> <p>The Department for Work and Pensions administers the national insurance pension scheme (State Retirement Pension) and fully recovers its administrative costs from the National Insurance Fund operated by Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC). 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><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

star this property answer text <p> </p><p>Animal Health Veterinary Laboratories Agency (AHVLA) and Defra have met with the Royal College of Pathologists, to discuss the new Surveillance model, on four separate occasions between September 2012 and the introduction of changes to the Surveillance model on 1 April 2014.</p><p> </p><p>A formal impact assessment was not required for this work because it does not involve a change in regulation. 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>
