No new money for fire safety or decarbonisation in the Budget

Reduction in Universal Credit taper is a positive

Requests from the sector for the government to zero rate VAT on fire remediation works went unheeded in the Spending Review. There was also no new money towards the costs of fire safety remediation or meeting net zero carbon requirements. The £20 per week reduction in Universal Credit also took place on 6th October, although changes to taper rates and work allowances will mitigate the impact for people in work.

Coronavirus Service

Subscribers to our Coronavirus Service receive a weekly update on the pandemic position. This includes the number of cases and rates per 100,000 over the past week in each local authority in which they have a material presence, plus trend data showing the direction of travel for each area. We also provide similar reports showing the position on a national and regional basis, and for all of the local authorities in the region(s) in which the subscriber operates. Alongside this, we include an overview of the situation, covering not only infection rates but also hospital admission and occupation data and the state of progress with the vaccination programme. An example showing the position at 5th July is available here.
