CONSERVATIVE CONFERENCEDAVID Cameron will today pledge to press ahead with a married couple’s tax allowance, in a move designed to compensate some families who are about to lose their child benefit.The Prime Minister will tell delegates at the Tory conference that the coalition will “recognise marriage in the tax system”, after a massive backlash over child benefit cuts that will penalise stay-at-home mothers and single parents.Before the general election, the Tories pledged to introduce an allowance for married couples and those in civil partnerships, but said it would only be given when both partners paid the basic rate of tax.But last night aides to the Prime Minister said he could expand the policy to cover families with one higher-rate taxpayer. “We certainly haven’t slammed the door on that possibility,” said one.And a source close to the chancellor told City A.M. the allowance, to be be introduced before the end of the parliament in 2015, would apply to some higher-rate taxpayers who have lost out from the cuts to child benefit.The Prime Minister is expanding the policy to defuse the row over the government’s decision to scrap child benefit for 1.2m families that contain a higher-rate tax payer, in a move that is expected to save the exchequer around £1bn a year.The change will punish families that have one adult paying the higher rate of tax. From 2013, a two-child family with a father that earns £44,000-a-year and a stay-at-home mother will lose £1,700 a year in child benefit. But a two-earner family where both parents earn £42,000 a year – giving them a combined household income of £84,000 – will continue to receive their child benefit.During the election, the Tories unveiled plans to make up to £750 of the personal allowance transferable between adults who were married.The Institute of Fiscal Studies said the plan would cost the exchequer £550m in foregone revenue.But that plan only applied to couples where the higher-income member was a basic-rate tax payer. Extending it to higher-rate taxpayers as well could wipe out most of the £1bn the government will save by scaling back child benefit.The massive backlash over child benefit cuts has taken the Conservatives by surprise. Last night, Cameron used a television interview to apologise for not including the plans in his election manifesto, while chancellor George Osborne wrote to MPs to explain the policy.Meanwhile, the Prime Minister will today champion the self-employed over “big business”, as he seeks to regain the political initiative and reengage with voters.He will say: “When you think of a wealth creator, don’t think of the tycoon in the glass tower. Think of the man who gets up and leaves the house before dawn to go out and clean the windows.”“The whole point is it’s not glamorous millionaires who are going to get us out of this mess,” said one Tory strategist.The Prime Minister is also expected to try and redefine the debate over “fairness”, after the IFS and Labour accused the government of delivering a “regressive” budget that will hit the poorest hardest.“For too long, we have measured success in tackling poverty by the size of the cheque we give people. We say: let’s measure our success by the chance we give,” Cameron will say.

Rank trials Experian affordability check service Topics: Legal & compliance Rank Group is to trial a new affordability check for gaming websites launched by Experian, the consumer financial data service provider.The owner of the Mecca Bingo and Grosvenor Casino brands will become the first gaming operator to roll out the Open Banking service in the coming weeks with a view to helping customers to only gamble within their means. Experian said it is in talks with several other major operators who are interested in adding the service.Experian’s Open Banking service allows gaming companies to access financial data of those customers that opt in, such as disposable income, weekly income and expenditure, and how much they spend with other gambling websites.Gaming companies may then work with specific customers to assist in setting rules and limits whereby they only spend what they can afford to, limiting the risk of gambling-related harm.Customers can be automatically accepted, declined or referred to their in-house responsible gambling team to help manage their spending.Rank said it is eager to embark on the proof-of-concept trial to better understand and manage customer risk.“Rank Group welcomes this initiative,” said the operator’s director of customer diligence Rory Howard. “It’s a fantastic opportunity for gaming organisations to work collaboratively with an organisation such as Experian which is licensed to use Open Banking.“The automated exchange of data in association with advanced analytics will enable us to help our customers gamble within their means.”The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) granted Experian permission to offer Open Banking and PSD2-related services in June. With a customer’s consent, Experian can use current account information to help organisations understand which products and services will be most suitable.Experian said the affordability check can be made at the most appropriate point for customers, such as when there is a change in their account behaviour or specific behaviour may indicate an increased risk.Tom Blacksell, managing director of B2B at Experian, said: “Innovative Open Banking services can help the gaming industry to protect its customers from problem gambling. People who choose to share data can prove they are gambling at a level they can afford, while gaming companies can meet their responsibilities to keep customers safe.“Experian is already in discussions with a handful of the biggest gaming companies in the UK, who can see the importance of this affordability check. It is one of many new services we are working on to bring the benefits of data sharing to businesses and their customers.”Last year the Gambling Commission outlined plans to consult with the industry about enhanced customer due diligence checks. It suggested that operators could be required to set limits on players’ spending which could only be increased once they had further verified information about the player, for example via an affordability check.iGamingBusiness.com understands that the consultation on customer due diligence requirements has recently completed with the findings soon to be published. The specific consultation on the setting of limits on players’ spending until verification takes place will commence soon.

TAGS: Highlight Men in black: New Zealand look unstoppable after bashing the Aussies last weekendHere’s a look at a couple of potential players for the Springboks, Wallabies and Pumas who can help their teams begin to bridge the seemingly growing gap with the All Blacks over the next year or two.Malcolm Marx, hooker, South AfricaMarx will have to oust Adriaan Strauss, the Springbok captain, in order to start, but there can be little doubt that he has been the form hooker in South Africa this season. Consistent at the set-piece and a nightmare for defences to try and contain in the loose, Marx has kicked on in 2016 and begun to realise the enormous potential which once made him one of the most highly-touted players at U20 level.Young Bok: Malcolm Marx could push for the No.2 shirtThere are shades of a young Bismarck du Plessis about Marx and it will take the bold call from Allister Coetzee of changing his captain to see Marx move up the pecking order, but it could be the making of this new-look Springbok side.Sergeal Petersen, wing, South AfricaThe Boks have found the answer on one of their wings with Ruan Combrinck taking his stellar Super Rugby form into the test arena but his partner on the other wing is yet to be found. JP Pietersen has moved to England and hasn’t been included in South Africa’s TRC squad, whilst Bryan Habana will be 36 at the next RWC, creating plenty of uncertainty at the position.Flyer: Sergeal Petersen could fill the boots of Bryan HabanaA veteran option like Lwazi Mvovo could do a job but in Petersen the Springboks could find all the pace that Habana gave them during his glory years, as well as a physical presence who is not afraid to put his body on the line in defence. Keeping veterans like Pietersen and Habana around as they blood Combrinck makes a lot of sense but once he is attuned to test rugby, turning to a talent like Petersen could see the Springboks take a large step forward.Allan Alaalatoa, prop, Australia LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS The Rugby Championship began last weekend, and in case there was any doubt, it cemented New Zealand’s position at the top of rugby’s international pantheon By Alex ShawThe All Blacks’ 42-8 demolition of the Wallabies in Sydney was exquisite, only further expanding the gulf in quality – both technically and mentally – between themselves and Australia, whilst the scrappy, albeit compelling, clash between South Africa and Argentina didn’t lend itself to either team looking as if they are able to maintain a sustained and serious challenge to New Zealand.It’s hard to remember a Rugby World Cup cycle beginning with such a stark differential in quality between the All Blacks and their southern hemisphere counterparts, particularly Australia and South Africa, and even three years out from the next RWC, it will be of great concern to New Zealand’s rivals. Alaalatoa may be the best scrummaging prospect to come out of Australia in the last few years, something which is made all the more impressive by his ability to cover both loosehead and tighthead. It’s a nice security blanket for the Wallabies to have but if they are to get the best out of him and ensure they remain competitive with the best scrummaging nations in the world, they will need to nail down his position sooner rather than later.Collision course: Allan Alaalatoa is one of the brightest front row talents in AustraliaHe has spent more time at loosehead but given that Australia already have Scott Sio and James Slipper at that position, their goal could well be to see him mature into their starting tighthead. Greg Holmes has left Australia for England, leaving Sekope Kepu as their only established player at the position.Reece Hodge, full-back, AustraliaIsrael Folau continues to push for more playing time at 13 and this potentially opens a door for Hodge at full-back, where the 21-year-old has excelled for the Melbourne Rebels this year.Utility: Reece Hodge possesses a likeliness to Adam Ashley-CooperAs with Alaalatoa, Hodge’s versatility makes him a valuable asset for the Wallabies and he is capable of also covering both wings and the outside centre berth, whilst his cannon-like boot would give Australia more range in goal-kicking situations, as well as a good tactical kicker for exiting their own 22. Hodge brings the same level of versatility that the Wallabies so relished in players like Adam Ashley-Cooper and Matt Giteau, and represents the future of Australian rugby, something which may need to be embraced swiftly.Facundo Isa, No. 8, ArgentinaIsa has been on the verge of cementing the Argentinean number eight jersey for a while now but the experience of Leonardo Senatore has prevented him from claiming it full-time. Now, with Senatore continuing to have discipline issues on the field and Isa rapidly developing into one of the world’s most exciting talents at the position, the time is ripe for him to make the position his own.Hungry Puma: Facundo Isa has his sights set on the No.8 shirtAlong with Santiago Cordero and Nicolás Sánchez, Isa can spearhead a young and exciting Pumas team which is capable of catching the All Blacks by the 2019 RWC and the experience he garners now, particularly in adversity, will make him all the better of a player further down the road.Marcos Kremer, lock, ArgentinaThe mountainous Kremer caught the eye at this year’s World Rugby U20 Championship, displaying all the athletic traits which the world’s top second rows have at their disposal. He followed that up by making his Super Rugby debut at the age of 18 and is now set to make the leap to test rugby. Kremer the crop: Marcos Kremer has been fast-tracked into the Pumas TRC squadHe has yet to debut for the Pumas but with Guido Petti being linked with a move to Toulon, something which would make him unavailable for international selection, Kremer could be the long-term partner to Tomás Lavanini in the Argentinean engine room. He has been fast-tracked into the Pumas’ TRC squad and it would not be surprising to see him make his test bow before the tournament concludes.For the latest Rugby World subscription offers click here and find out how to download the digital edition here

Presiding Bishop Michael Curry preaches Oct. 21 at Christ Church in New Brunswick, New Jersey, as House of Deputies President the Rev. Gay Clark Jennings listens. The church is a short walk from where the Episcopal Church’s Executive Council was meeting. Council members joined the Christ Church congregation for Eucharist. To Curry’s right is the Episcopal Church flag that flew over the Dakota Access Pipeline camp in North Dakota. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service – New Brunswick, New Jersey] The Episcopal Church’s Executive Council asked Oct. 22 that law-enforcement officials “de-escalate military and police provocation in and near the campsites of peaceful protest and witness of the Dakota Access Pipeline project.”The request came in a resolution council passed as it wrapped up its three-day meeting here. A summary of resolutions council passed is here.Council’s resolution on the Dakota pipeline protest follows support by Presiding Bishop Michael Curry both in words and his presence with the protestors.The Rev. John Floberg, council member and supervising priest of the Episcopal churches on the North Dakota side of Standing Rock, told the council’s Joint Standing Committee on Advocacy and Networking for Mission Oct. 21 that the way the protest has been conducted has been “the most powerful experience I have had in my 25 years on Standing Rock.” And, yet, he said, he has been shaken by the racist responses that the protest has generated elsewhere in the state.The Episcopal Church’s ministry to the protestors opened what he called the “evangelical window of the gospel” between the Christian churches and Native Americans, “versus all the racism that has been reared up so ugly in North Dakota.”The Rev. John Floberg, council member from North Dakota, tells council’s Advocacy and Networking for Mission committee Oct. 21 that the Standing Rock Sioux Nation’s action against the Dakota Access Pipeline project is fraught with tension as well as filled with grace. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceFloberg told the committee that law enforcement’s response has been provocative and nearly amounts to martial law. He said he has seen officers shoulder their guns against prayerful groups of protesting adults and children.“It’s going to result in death” if the response is not stepped back, he said.Council’s resolution calls on President Barack Obama, the North Dakota governor, North Dakota’s U.S. senators and congressman, the U.S. Department of Justice and the Morton County Sheriff Department to make all necessary efforts possible to immediately de-escalate military and police provocation at the campsites. It praises the Standing Rock Sioux Tribal Council and its chairman and the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe and its council for their “prayerful and nonviolent presence.”The resolution commends the dioceses of North Dakota and South Dakota for their supportive leadership of the Sioux Nation’s response “to the corporate and governmental intrusion onto its sacred ground”; the ecumenical and interfaith partners that have joined the Episcopal Church’s ministry there; the Anglican Church of Canada; and the Episcopal dioceses that have offered moral and financial support.The resolution asks the Episcopal Church at all levels to prayerfully and financially support the planned winter encampment, which it says is the Sioux Nation’s “right for peaceful assembly and protest.”“This flag has flown so proudly,” in part because it was the only Christian church flag at the Dakota Access Pipeline camp in North Dakota, the Rev. John Floberg told Episcopal Church Canonical Archivist Mark Duffy, right, as he presented the flag to his care. “And we hate to give her up,” Floberg added, his voice faltering. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceOn the closing day of the meeting, Floberg presented to the Archives of the Episcopal Church housed in Austin, Texas, the now-tattered Episcopal Church flag that flew over the Oceti Skowin Camp in North Dakota for months. The flag, he said, was the only Christian church flag among the 300 flags of tribal nations that flew over the peaceful-protest encampment.On Oct. 21 the flag was part of Holy Eucharist at nearby historic Christ Church. Early in the service, the flag hung near a plaque commemorating the fifth president of the House of Deputies in the early 1800s and Christ Church Rector Abraham Beach; at the Great Thanksgiving, the flag was moved to the altar.One of the first organizational meetings of what is now known as the Episcopal Church took place at Christ Church. During a lunch-break news conference Oct. 22, current House of Deputies President the Rev. Gay Clark Jennings linked those organizers to the Episcopalians now ministering on the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation.“They were really courageous, forward-looking, patriotic Anglicans trying to figure out how to be the church in a new land and in a new way,” she said, juxtaposing their efforts with church members in the Dakotas who are now “being Episcopalians in a brave and courageous new way” and who are “trying to figure out the exact same thing.”Curry said that the Episcopal flag with what is now an “old rugged cross” running down its middle had been in the Oceti Skowin Camp a “visible witness of what the cross is about – the out-stretched arms of Jesus reflecting the love of God and now reaching out at Standing Rock, reaching out for everyone to be treated as a child of God, reaching out for us to care for God’s creation.”And, Curry said, that “old, worn Episcopal flag” was the “defining image” of this council meeting and its work around racial reconciliation and evangelism.During the Oct. 22 news conference, Curry said the Episcopal Church took a stand on the Dakota Access Pipeline project, not because of the question of whether oil should be used as an energy source. “The issue here is that decisions were made which adversely affect Native communities – the Sioux reservation itself – when there may have been other alternative ways to accomplish the same thing.”The Episcopal Church flag that flew over the Dakota Access Pipeline camp in North Dakota lays folded for its journey to the Archives of the Episcopal Church in Austin, Texas, along with the Rev. John Floberg’s notes from his presentation of the flag. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceThe decisions involved whether the environmental assessment process was properly conducted and whether the United States respected the Sioux’s rights as a sovereign nation.Curry said he was glad that the federal justice and interior departments, as well as the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, had called for construction to stand down 20 miles to the east and 20 miles to the west of the Missouri River so that those decisions could be reviewed. The pipeline is routed under the river, which is the reservation’s only source of water.The Episcopal Church’s entry into the protest is rooted in its 2009 repudiation of the Doctrine of Discovery, Curry said. “Part of that action was to say we have got to find more just, equitable and fair ways of being in relationship with our brothers and sisters in the Native communities in our country,” the presiding bishop said.The pipeline protest, he said, is a way of calling people to step back and examine what is the “best, most sensible and most prudent way” to address energy needs of the nation. Curry emphasized that he went to the Standing Rock Nation at the request of Episcopalians involved in the action.“I really do believe this is not a partisan thing. This is not a liberal or conservative thing. This is not a Republican-Democratic thing. This is a human thing and it’s a Jesus thing to do what is right for all God’s children,” he said. “I am glad our government is trying to figure out what that is.”Executive Council met at the Heldrich Hotel in New Brunswick, New Jersey. Previous ENS coverage of the New Brunswick meeting is here.The Executive Council carries out the programs and policies adopted by the General Convention, according to Canon I.4 (1). The council comprises 38 members – 20 of whom (four bishops, four priests or deacons, and 12 lay people) are elected by General Convention and 18 (one clergy and one lay) by the nine provincial synods for six-year terms – plus the presiding bishop and the president of the House of Deputies. In addition, the vice president of the House of Deputies, secretary, chief operating officer, treasurer and chief financial officer have seat and voice but no vote. – The Rev.
