star this property answer text <p>The UK is committed to supporting entrepreneurship in Africa to grow local economies, create jobs, reduce poverty and support sustainable development. Last summer, the PM announced that CDC Group, the UK’s Development Finance Institution, would invest up to £3.5 billion in businesses in Africa over four years (2018 to 2021). CDC has already committed £1.9bn in Africa over the last 3 years (2016-2018). CDC is invested in 698 different companies in Africa, directly supporting 370,000 jobs.</p><p>Through CDC and other country specific initiatives, we will mobilise a further £4 billion of private investment for Africa. This investment will allow businesses to grow, produce goods and services for local people, generate income and tax revenues, and help address the financing gap for meeting the Sustainable Development Goals.</p><p>In January next year, the UK will convene an Africa Investment Summit to further promote investment in Africa and to strengthen the partnership with UK investors and companies.</p>

star this property answer text <p>In September 2018, alongside the Agriculture Bill and policy statement, the Government published an ‘Analysis of the impacts of removing Direct Payments’. This provided an overview of the potential impacts to different farm types and sizes of moving away from direct payments and introducing a new system of public money for public goods.<del class="ministerial"> It also showed the potential across all sectors for farmers to become more efficient – producing more for less – as a response to any reductions in direct payments.</del></p><p> </p><p><del class="ministerial">Direct payments are untargeted, poor value for money, undermine efficiency and productivity improvements, and limit opportunities for new entrants. They have imposed unnecessary bureaucracy on farmers and can inflate rent prices. Some of our most successful and vibrant food-producing sectors of agriculture have never been subsidised. For example the poultry industry, the pig industry and the horticulture industry.</del></p><p> </p><p><ins class="ministerial">Direct payments are arbitrary payments based on land area that tend to favour larger land owners rather than smaller family farming businesses.</ins> In England we will phase out direct payments during an agricultural transition, giving time for farmers to adjust. Phasing out direct payments will free up money so we can reward farmers for delivering public goods, including environmental outcomes<ins class="ministerial"> and animal welfare</ins>.<del class="ministerial"> We recognise that some certain sectors are more dependent than others on direct payments but provided that these farmers are delivering public goods, they will be well placed to benefit from the new system.</del></p>

star this property answer text <p>New European Union Regulations for medical devices (MDR) entered into force in May 2017 and will fully apply from May 2020.</p><p>The new Regulations substantially strengthen the regulatory framework for medical devices and notified bodies are having to make significant changes to meet the enhanced requirements. These changes have the aim of improving the quality, consistency and rigour of notified body assessments, which was one of the Government’s key aims for the new legislation.</p><p>Ministers have met with and received letters from industry representatives who have raised concerns about capacity in the notified body sector across the EU to support the implementation of the MDR. The Government recognises the importance of having competent notified bodies across the EU in place in sufficient time to ensure continuity of supply of products to the United Kingdom market.</p><p>For this reason, at the Employment, Social Policy, Health and Consumer Affairs (EPSCO) Council on 14 June, the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State (Baroness Blackwood of North Oxford) raised the Government’s concerns about the readiness of critical infrastructure required to implement the MDR and the risk that some existing and new to market products will not be available to patients as a result.</p><p>We very much recognise the benefits of the new Regulations and the imperative of full implementation as soon as possible in the interests of patient safety. Therefore, at EPSCO the Government emphasised the importance of finding a coordinated solution at an EU level and we will continue to do what we can to influence these discussions.</p><p>In parallel with this activity, the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has been engaging with its notified bodies on an ongoing basis to ensure that sufficient resources are in place and notified bodies are prepared for the implementation of the new EU legislation. The MHRA is also offering a substantial amount of resource to the EU in order to support and expedite the designation process.</p><p>Through the Office for Life Sciences, the Government plans to work with stakeholders to come to a shared understanding of the issues and discuss what further mitigating action could be taken. Further engagement with industry will therefore take place in the short term.</p><p> </p>
