Some analysts are backing the trend to carry on throughout the remainder of the year. “New car sales will strengthen further in 2015 as consumer con­fid­ence continues to rise,” said John Leech, head of Automotive for KPMG.  TOP FIVE SELLING CARS: YEAR TO DATEFord Fiesta39,804Vauxhall Corsa29,100Ford Focus22,287Volkswagen Golf19,435Nissan Qashqai18,686 Several factors are making it easier to finance car purchases. “The industry continues to support the market with attractive consumer finance packages,” Leech said.Factories with spare capacity – many in Europe – have chosen to maintain output by offering lucrative finance packages instead of making costly cutbacks to their workforce. Meanwhile, the Bank of England’s low base rate is helping access to finance.  A strong pound has also helped. “Sterling has recovered roughly half the value it lost during 2008-9 and if it rises further this could make new car prices even cheaper, further bolstering the market,” Leech said. The sharp climb in sales was also a reflection of business confidence. Sales to firms that have more than 25 company cars shot up by 11.6 per cent in March compared to the same month last year. Sales to all business climbed by 9.8 per cent.  “The best month this century for new car registrations is a welcome boost for the UK’s thriving automotive sector,” said SMMT chief executive Mike Hawes.  “The challenge for a new government and industry will be to maintain this momentum and to strengthen Britain’s manufacturing capabilities through continued inv­est­ment, innovation and policies which maintain our global competitiveness.” The UK’s fortunes are in stark contrast to Russia’s. Sales of new cars  and light commercial vehicles in Russia fell by 42.5 per cent in March to 139,850 as the country deals with a falling rouble, high inflation, a collapsing price oil – its main export – and economic sanctions.  Tags: NULLlast_img read more

first_imgStatement on Passage of Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2021 in House of Representatives The White HouseI applaud the House of Representatives for passing the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act (VAWA) with bipartisan support – and I urge the Senate to follow their lead to renew and strengthen this landmark law.Writing and passing VAWA is one of the legislative accomplishments of which I’m most proud. VAWA has transformed the way our country responds to violence against women. And, with each re-authorization, the Congress has expanded VAWA’s provisions on a bipartisan basis to improve protections, including for Native American women and survivors from underserved communities, and improve efforts to prevent intimate partner violence.While we have made significant progress, there is still much work to do. As many as 1 in 3 women are subjected to domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking at some point in their lives, and the rate is even higher for women of color, Native American women, and members of the LGBTQ community. Growing evidence shows that COVID-19 has only exacerbated the threat of intimate partner violence, creating a pandemic within a pandemic for countless women at risk for abuse. In short, this is an urgent crisis.This should not be a Democratic or Republican issue – it’s about standing up against the abuse of power and preventing violence. I am grateful to the House of Representatives for their leadership and dedication to ending gender-based violence. Now, I urge the Senate to follow past precedent and bring a strong bipartisan coalition together to ensure the passage of VAWA so that I can sign this legislation as soon as possible. /Public Release.

Their samples were tested negative, Dhal said. He also said samples of suspected coronavirus cases from private and government hospitals and AIIMS will be sent to RMRC here for testing. While isolation wards with ventilator support have been created at major medical college and hospitals and the Capital Hospital in Bhubaneshwar, screening of all passengers is being done at airports and ports, the official said. The authorities of private hospitals were also asked to create isolation facilities, he said. Besides, workplace advisory has been issued to all government departments and corporates and other institutes.Meanwhile, a three-year-old child has tested positive for the novel coronavirus, officials said in Kochi.

first_imgRelatedWork on Migration and Development Policy Advanced Members of the Senate have expressed delight that the United States of America has officially lifted its designation of the Republic of Cuba as a state sponsor of terror, as the two countries seek to re-establish diplomatic ties.Speaking at the sitting of the Senate on May 29, Leader of Government Business, Senator the Hon. A.J. Nicholson, said the move “is long overdue” and will help to strengthen the relationship between the two nations.“Word has come to us that the spectre of a terrorist state has been removed from the Republic of Cuba and Mr. President. Indeed, this is long overdue. Things are happening and the tension within the Hemisphere is slowly being removed and receding,” he said.For his part, President of the Senate, Floyd Morris, in offering his good wishes, said the Senate will convey in writing “to our friends, on behalf of both sides of the Senate, our congratulations to the Government and people of Cuba.”In his remarks, Opposition Senator, Alexander Williams, said with this latest development, it is hoped that there will be greater cooperation between Cuba and the rest of the Caribbean, including Jamaica.“It is heartening to see the thawing of relations between the current United States government and the Cuban people and this is another significant step along that route,” he said.“The fallacy of Cuba being designated a terrorist state has come to an end. The Cuban people may not have followed a course of development that certainly other Caribbean territories have followed, in terms of their political arrangements, but they are still friends and we still, I feel, enjoy a close connection with the Cuban people,” Mr. Williams said.The removal was announced by the State Department on May 29 in a Statement. It noted that while differences with the country remain, they were not a hindrance to Cuba’s removal from the list.United States President, Barack Obama, had notified Congress earlier this year that he intended to remove Cuba from the list, giving lawmakers 45 days to object, which elapsed on May 29.Cuba’s removal from the list means that it will have more access to global financial markets and loans from international organizations, such as the World Bank. The country was added to the terrorism list in 1982.

first_imgSOUTHPORT, England – Matt Wallace moved into position for his fifth European Tour win in two years by shooting 5-under 67 to take the second-round lead at the British Masters on Friday. The Englishman was 12 under overall and a stroke clear of a trio of players including Niklas Lemke, who made eight straight birdies – one off the professional golf record – in shooting 64. Lemke was tied with Ross Fisher (65) and Thomas Detry (67). Wallace won his first title in Portugal in 2017 before three more in 2018, when he was unfortunate to miss out on a wild card for the Ryder Cup outside Paris. He is determined to continue his rise and has recently started working with fitness expert Dr. Steve McGregor, who counts former world No. 1s Rory McIlroy and Lee Westwood among his previous clients. ”If I look at the bigger picture of the next three or four years, it’s very similar to (British Open champion) Francesco (Molinari),” said Wallace, who was playing on the Alps Tour and at No. 1,672 in the rankings this time four years ago. Your browser does not support iframes. Full-field scores from the Betfred British Masters ”Three years ago, he wasn’t where he is now and I want to be doing what he’s doing – Ryder Cups and majors and competing at every single event pretty much.” Wallace has yet to drop a shot this week after starting with a 65. With his streak of birdies from No. 13 to No. 2 after starting at the 10th hole, Lemke came close to equaling the record set by former British Open champion Mark Calcavecchia in 2009 and matched by James Nitties at the Vic Open in February. The 371st-ranked Lemke, who had missed the cut in six of his last seven events, had the third-best stroke average in the history of Arizona State University behind Paul Casey and Phil Mickelson but came close to giving up the game after struggling in the professional ranks. ”Three years ago, I decided I was going to give it two years and if I felt I was getting better I would continue,” said Lemke, who graduated from the European Tour qualifying school last year at the 10th attempt. ”I made a two-year plan and committed to it. ”There are still some ups and downs but it feels like it’s going in the right direction.”last_img read more

first_imgThe way workplace disputes are being pursued is changing. Sam Murray-Hinde of law firm Howard Kennedy lays out how a Tribunal can affect small operatorsWith Employment Tribunal fees having been quashed by the Supreme Court in July, some larger operators are noticing a change in the way workplace disputes are being pursued by both employees and unions.For some, there has already been a noticeable increase in claims, meritorious or otherwise. For smaller operators, being faced with a legal claim can be daunting.Before a claim can be presented, employees have to go through mandatory early conciliation via ACAS. They notify ACAS of their potential claim and you are contacted to see if settlement can be reached. The conciliation period normally lasts up to one month.If settlement fails, a certificate is issued. Employees need this in order to present a claim to the Tribunal, via an ET1 form.Sadly, where employees have unrealistic views on compensation, some claims are cheaper to defend than settle. Others may need to be defended to send a tactical message to the workforce. Witness statementsClaims for unlawful deductions from wages and unfair dismissal are normally listed for full hearing by the Tribunal upon receipt. Discrimination claims are listed for a preliminary hearing so that the legal issues can first be clarified. The ET1 form is then copied to you by the Tribunal, along with any notices of hearing and/or orders. Your response has to be submitted on an ET3 form within 28 days. The response should be kept as short as possible, setting out the factual chronology and whether or not the allegations are admitted or denied. Further detail should be saved for the witness statements.Identify your witnesses early on so that you can speak to them and fully understand the background to the allegations and the merits of the claim. If they have not given evidence before, it is worth them attending a Tribunal hearing so that they know what to expect (most hearings are held in public, and you can sit in as an observer).A judge reviews the ET1 and ET3 forms and can list the matter for hearing, and/or issue orders. The orders will set a timetable for:The employee to serve a schedule of lossThe parties to disclose relevant documentsThe exchange of witness statementsAgreeing an indexed and paginated bundle.Less formalTribunals are less formal than the courts, and hearings are normally before a judge sitting alone, unless they involve discrimination allegations, where the judge will have two side members. Judgment can be given on the day, or reserved.If you lose, you should request written reasons within 14 days, as these are needed in order to lodge any appeal, should there be grounds.Tribunals will only make costs awards in limited circumstances. Therefore, if the claim is manifestly unmeritorious, it is advisable to put the employee on notice of costs from the outset and then use this as the basis for a costs application on conclusion of the matter.As ever, prevention is better than cure. It is important to have in place, and keep updated, core policies and procedures and ensure management apply these consistently. Training is also invaluable in helping managers to spot potential issues and know how to deal with them, including how to effect a procedurally and substantively fair dismissal.last_img read more
