star this property answer text <p>For the first time this year the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy published information from Government departments and their arm’s-length bodies on the value and origin of the steel procured over the financial year 2017/18, where this information was available. The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy did not directly procure any steel, from the UK or overseas, in this period for major projects.</p><p> </p><p>We will continue to work closely with departments and their arm’s-length bodies to improve awareness of the steel procurement guidance and the quality of the information that they are able to provide us on the steel procured for their major projects.</p><p> </p><p>In publishing this data and the annual Steel Pipeline, we are supporting the industry to maximise its potential for growth, enabling steel businesses to plan for future demand, and ultimately increase the amount of UK steel used in both public and private UK projects. The Steel Pipeline shows how the government plans to use over 3 million tonnes of steel – worth around £500 million – over the next decade, on infrastructure projects such as the construction of Hinkley Point C and the maintenance and upgrading of the UK’s motorway network.</p>

star this property answer text <p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p>The UK has applied a reduced, 5% VAT rate on 11 different types of energy saving materials, including solar panels, since 2001. That remains in place. The Government is still considering the responses to the consultation on energy saving materials and will issue a response to that consultation shortly.</p><p> </p><p>The business rate treatment for solar panels is consistent with the treatment for other power generating plant and machinery. Plant and machinery which is used to provide power to the property is rateable, while these items are not rateable if the power is being wholly or mainly sold to other consumers. Changing the law in this instance would mean giving preferential treatment to the solar sector.</p><p> </p><p>The treatment of capital allowances for solar panels is also consistent with the treatment for other power generating technologies.</p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Solar power is a UK success story, with rapid deployment over the last 7 years. Latest figures indicate that we now have over 12.5GW of solar capacity installed in the UK, enough to power over 2.7 million homes and exceeding our historic projections.</p><p> </p><p>Support for solar comes directly from people's bills, so when costs come down, so should support. Therefore we have taken steps to control the costs of support schemes and put solar on a path to delivering without subsidy. We expect subsidy-free solar to be an increasingly attractive option. Some of the UK’s largest solar developers have said that they will be installing and connecting subsidy-free sites in 2017.</p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this
