star this property answer text <p>There is a statutory process for revising the pay and conditions of teachers and any change must first be referred by my right hon. Friend, the Secretary of State, to the independent School Teachers’ Review Body (STRB). The demands on the STRB’s time and resources mean that the Government has to make hard decisions on prioritising the issues it refers. The Government is committed to making the teaching profession an attractive and competitive career but is not currently considering proposing an extension to the current salary sacrifice schemes for teachers to cover cars.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Personal Independence Payment (PIP) is intended to act as a contribution towards the extra costs that arise as a result of a long-term health condition or disability.</p><p>Entitlement to PIP is assessed on the basis of the needs arising from a health condition or disability, rather than the health condition or disability itself.</p><p>We consulted extensively while developing the mobility component of the assessment, notably undertaking a second consultation exercise following feedback that the moving around activity was difficult to understand.</p><p>We carefully considered all the responses, including the suggestions for alternative approaches and the final consultation response was published on 21 October 2013.</p><p>The enhanced rate of the PIP Mobility component was always intended to be for those &quot;unable&quot; or &quot;virtually unable&quot; to walk and we believe the current assessment criteria are the best way of identifying those whose physical mobility is most limited.</p>

Friend the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care announced a root-and-branch review of all the food in hospitals, both food served, and food sold. This will look at the safety of food available to patients, visitors and staff, and provide healthier choices and improved nutrition.</p><p>National Health Service organisations have systems of due diligence in place to ensure that all their suppliers have appropriate registrations. The kitchens and other areas in the NHS used to store and process food are required to be registered and rated by the local authority and all staff involved in the preparation and handling of food are required to hold a level two food hygiene certificate. In addition to this, a food safety management system must be in place that outlines controls and processes for the safe delivery, handling and preparing of foods.</p><p>The Food Standards Agency (FSA) published comprehensive guidance for healthcare and social care organisations on managing listeria risk in vulnerable people in 2016. The FSA commissioned delivery of training to 557 key staff responsible for food safety in hospitals and 288 local authority Environmental Health Officers in a series of workshops and webinars in 2015.</p><p><strong> </strong></p>
