Since 2010, businesses and overseas investors have been responsible for an average of two thirds of gross investment in R&amp;D. The Department is working with UKRI and other key partners to stimulate private investment in R&amp;D, harness the latest trends in innovation and make the UK a great place to grow an innovative business.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The UK Chief Medical Officers’ published guidelines in 2011 which recommended that children and young people aged 5-18 should do a minimum of 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous intensity physical activity per day.</p><p> </p><p>It is up to schools to decide what opportunities to offer to pupils to be active, including through a diverse and challenging physical exercise (PE) curriculum that suits the needs of all their pupils. Under the Childhood Obesity Plan the government set an expectation that at least 30 minutes should be delivered in school every day through active break times, PE, extra-curricular clubs, active lessons, or other sport and physical activity events.</p><p> </p><p>The government restated this expectation in the School Sport and Activity Action Plan published earlier this month. A link to the Plan is attached here: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/school-sport-and-activity-action-plan" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/school-sport-and-activity-action-plan</a>.</p><p>Through the action set out in the plan, the government will support schools to offer high quality PE and activity opportunities and take steps to increase the opportunities outside of school. As part of the plan, the government has committed to raising awareness of the appropriate levels of physical activity for children and young people, to align with updated Chief Medical Officers’ guidance on physical activity which is due in September 2019.</p><p> </p><p>The department will shortly be issuing procurement guidelines on the purchase and installation of multi-use games areas (MUGAs) for schools. MUGAs provide an excellent opportunity to enhance sports facilities for all schools, particularly those with limited outside space. They can be used all year round, increasing the ability of schools to help ensure as much sporting provision as possible.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The United Kingdom and Nepal are long time partners. The two countries have enjoyed diplomatic relations for over 200 years, by far the longest formal relationship Nepal has with any country. Today the relationship is broad, vibrant and diverse and marked by mutual respect. Although no serving British Prime Minister has visited Nepal, the governments enjoy frequent Ministerial visits in both directions. The Government was delighted to welcome Prime Minister Oli of Nepal to London in June; his visit included a bilateral meeting with Prime Minister May, an audience with His Royal Highness the Duke of Sussex, and a dinner at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst. At this early stage, the Prime Minister’s travel plans are yet to be confirmed.</p><p>​</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Improving the energy efficiency of domestic properties, commercial buildings and public sector buildings is vital for meeting the UK’s carbon reduction targets.</p><p> </p><p>Homes in the UK represent 15% of carbon emissions and meeting the net zero target is likely to require largely eliminating emissions from our housing stock. That is why we set out our aspiration in the <em>Clean Growth Strategy</em> that all homes should be EPC Band C by 2035. However reducing demand for energy will not be enough on its own, and by 2050 we will also likely need to fully decarbonise how we heat our homes.</p><p> </p><p>For businesses and industry, we set an ambition in the <em>Clean Growth Strategy</em> to reduce their energy usage by improving energy efficiency by at least 20% by 2030. This will deliver 22MtCO2e towards the fifth Carbon Budget.</p><p> </p><p>For public sector buildings, the <em>Clean Growth Strategy</em> states non-traded emissions (primarily from heating) should fall by around 50% by 2032, compared to 2017. We estimate that around half of this reduction will be met through energy efficiency and half from decarbonising heat supply.</p><p> </p><p>As with homes, it is likely that greenhouse gas emissions from non-domestic buildings will need to be largely eliminated by 2050 to meet the net zero target.</p>
