Details of facilities made available under the Coronavirus Large Business Interruption Loan Scheme will be published where required via the European Commission’s Transparency Aid Module.

22nd Mar 2021
To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, whether Greensill Capital is still an accredited lender under the Coronavirus Large Business Interruption Loan Scheme; and if he will make a statement.

To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, how many qualified chiropodists there are in the NHS in England; and how many there were in 2010.

Helen Whately
Exchequer Secretary (HM Treasury)
21st Feb 2020
To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what the average waiting time is for an NHS chiropody appointment in England.

The information requested is not centrally collected.

Edward Argar
Minister of State (Department of Health and Social Care)
21st Feb 2020
To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what the NHS budget is for chiropody training; and what that budget was 2015.

There is no dedicated National Health Service budget for chiropody training, now formally called podiatry. Funding for elements of training, such as clinical placements, is included within the education and training tariff and paid to placement providers by Health Education England.

In December 2019 the Government announced additional maintenance grant funding, which will be available from September 2020 for new and continuing students of £5,000. In addition, students with child dependants will benefit from an extra £1,000 and new students studying a specialist subject including podiatry will be able to access a further £1,000. These grants are on top of student loan allowances and do not need to be re-paid.

Helen Whately
Exchequer Secretary (HM Treasury)
12th Jan 2022
To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, what assessment he has made of over how many years the £17 billion cost to the public purse will be realised as a result of the remedy contained in the Public Service Pensions and Judicial Offices Bill.

The remedy proposed in the Public Service Pensions and Judicial Offices Bill is designed to address the discrimination identified by the McCloud and Sargeant judgments. For the main unfunded public service pension schemes, in effect, remedy offers members in scope a choice between legacy or reformed scheme benefits for the remedy period, which runs from 1 April 2015 to 31 March 2022. Members in scope of remedy are those with service on or before 31 March 2012 and on or after 1 April 2015.

The cost of remedy is the cost of additional pension benefits accrued due to remedy. Those benefits will typically be paid out across the retirement of eligible members. The estimated £17 billion cost of remedy will, therefore, be paid out over many decades as the pensions of those in scope come into payment.

Simon Clarke
Chief Secretary to the Treasury
19th May 2021
To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, with reference to the Treasury Committee report, Net Zero and the Future of Green Finance, published on 22 April 2021, what plans he has to ensure that there is a (a) clear timetable and (b) legislative pathway to deliver a UK taxonomy ahead of COP26 in November 2021.

In November 2020, the Chancellor announced that the UK would implement a Green Taxonomy to create a common understanding of which economic activities are environmentally sustainable, improving understanding of the impact of firms’ activities and investments on the environment.

The Government is required to make Technical Screening Criteria (TSC) via secondary legislation for climate change mitigation, and climate change adaptation no later than 1 January 2023. These TSC will be subject to appropriate, open consultation prior to making.

Kemi Badenoch
Minister for Equalities
22nd Mar 2021
To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, if he will list the dates of his contacts with David Cameron in relation to Greensill Capital.

Ministers routinely meet with a range of private sector stakeholders. Transparency releases are published on a quarterly basis and are currently publicly available for Ministerial meetings up to and including September 2020, which is in line with normal reporting timelines on disclosures.

John Glen
Economic Secretary (HM Treasury)
22nd Mar 2021
To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, if he will publish the notes made at the meetings between his officials and Greensill Capital.

John Glen
Economic Secretary (HM Treasury)
26th Feb 2021
To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, what assessment his Department has made of the risk of fraud in respect of raising the limit for contactless spending to £100; and if he will make a statement.

The Government’s EU exit deal allows the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) to change the legal contactless limits, which were previously set by the European Commission. On 3 March, the FCA increased the legal single contactless payment limit from £45 to £100.

The FCA undertook a public consultation ahead of taking its decision and has carefully considered the potential impacts on fraud from these changes. When the contactless payment limits were last raised in Spring 2020 from £30 to £45 there was no significant recorded increase in fraud levels.

John Glen
Economic Secretary (HM Treasury)
1st Feb 2021
To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, whether fraud is an agenda item for the memorandum of understanding to be negotiated between the UK and the EU on financial services; and if he will make a statement.

We have committed, with the EU, to agreeing a Memorandum of Understanding to establish a framework for regulatory cooperation. This will allow for ongoing bilateral exchanges of views and analysis relating to regulatory initiatives and other issues of interest. This is not a prescriptive or exhaustive approach and will allow for discussions on a range of regulatory issues which are of common interest.
John Glen
Economic Secretary (HM Treasury)

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what Action Fraud's annual budget is.

Kit Malthouse
Minister of State (Ministry of Justice) (jointly with Home Office)
1st Feb 2021
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what estimate she has made of the annual cost of fraud to UK consumers.

There are no Government estimates of the annual cost of fraud specifically for UK consumers. The Home Office has estimated that the total economic and social cost of fraud to individuals in England and Wales in 2015/2016 was £4.7bn [1].

Data on incidents of fraud is available from two key sources, the ONS Crime Survey for England and Wales (CSEW) and Action Fraud supply data to the Home Office on the number of recorded fraud and computer misuse offences that have been reported to and recorded by them.

The CSEW report that in the year ending March 2020, there were an estimated 914,000 incidents of consumer and retail fraud.
