star this property answer text <p>Offshore remote betting operations have not hitherto been licensed by the Gambling Commission. This means there is currently no centrally collected and publicly available comprehensive dataset of offshore remote operator profits on which to base an estimate. This will change once the Gambling (Licensing and Advertising) Act comes into force on 1 November. We expect the Gambling Commission will be including data from remote offshore operators in their <em>Industry Statistics</em> from 2015.</p><p> </p><p>In the Government’s recent consultation <em>Extending the Horserace Betting Levy</em>, we noted that any estimates of potential additional yield extrapolated from published information such as some company accounts would necessarily be “best guesses” and could only be indicative, not least because the remote gambling market is growing very quickly. We said that the range of “best guesses” ran from £10m to £30m p.a. and sought estimates of potential additional levy yield from respondents assuming the rate of collection remained at 10.75%. Such estimates as were received in consultation responses generally fell within that bracket. The government will be publishing its response to the consultation in due course.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government believes that the country owes a particular debt of gratitude to those Service personnel who suffer life-changing injuries.<br><br>The Ministry of Defence therefore continues to improve the support that it offers to such personnel. In particular we now operate a Seriously Injured Leavers Protocol (SIL) which aims to ensure the identification of and ongoing support for, those Service leavers deemed likely to be medically discharged due to a severe physical or mental disablement.<br><br>This identification is based upon defined major disabling medical criteria, whilst the support is organised through the closer working of MOD in-Service and post Service welfare groups. The MOD’s Veterans Welfare Service proactively intervenes for 24 months and then maintains contact as required but at least yearly on the anniversary of discharge. Full details of the SIL protocol are available at the following website: http://www.veterans-uk.info/welfare/protocol_new.html</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Department for Education is asking schools, like other employers across the public sector, to contribute more towards their employees’ pensions to ensure that the cost of public sector pension schemes do not fall unfairly on taxpayers. Our protection of the core schools budget in real terms means that schools are well-placed to cope with changes in their costs in 2015-16. The Department has also deferred the introduction of the increase to September 2015, giving schools an additional five months to plan how they will meet the additional pensions cost.</p><p>In addition, the Chancellor confirmed that the next spending review will take into account the cost to employers of the reforms to the Teachers’ Pension Scheme and the implications for National Insurance.</p> more like this
