star this property answer text <p>The Department recognises the importance of sport to the nation and within that the contribution of international talent, and the UK will seek to continue to attract the best of international talent across all sports. As the Government considers the options for a future immigration system we will also need to understand the potential impacts of any proposed changes in all parts of the UK. We will look to develop a system that works for all in consultation with all relevant sport stakeholders.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>We expect all sports and all clubs to take the necessary action to fulfil their legal obligations under the Equality Act of 2010 so that disabled people are not placed at a substantial disadvantage when accessing sports venues. We are expecting a final report from the Premier League on whether clubs have met the pledge on accessibility standards in August 2017.</p><p> </p><p>The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) is the body responsible for enforcing the Equality Act 2010. Following the EHRC’s call for evidence from Premier League clubs to assess their adherence to the terms of the Equality Act, if the EHRC suspect or believe that individual clubs are in breach of the Act 2010, they will consider the use of their statutory powers in order to achieve compliance. All clubs failing to meet the minimum requirements will have until September 2017 to publish their plan of action and timetable for improvement or face an investigation. We will support the EHRC in any action that they take against clubs and sports that are not fulfilling their legal duties towards disabled spectators.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong><br> </strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p>

star this property answer text <p>Digital connectivity is a clear priority for this Government, and we compare well to other EU countries. BDUK’s Superfast programme will provide at least 24 Megabits per second (Mbps) coverage to 95% of the UK by the end of this year. According to the latest data, published on <a href="http://thinkbroadband.com/" target="_blank">thinkbroadband.com</a>, UK coverage at 30Mbps is 92.6%.</p><p> </p><p>The European Commission, in their 2017 report &quot;Europe's Digital Progress&quot;, state that the EU average for 30Mbps coverage is just 76%.</p><p> </p><p>In terms of 100Mbps coverage, thinkbroadband report that for the UK this currently stands at 52.8%. We are keen to ensure even better digital connectivity in the UK, and we announced a package of measures worth £1.1 billion at Autumn Statement 2016 to support this:</p><ul><li>The Digital Infrastructure Investment Fund, which was launched on 3 July and will provide finance for new fibre investments.</li><li>The Local Full Fibre Networks programme, which will support local bodies in stimulating the market for fibre connectivity in their areas.</li><li>A Bill to enable business rates relief for new fibre build.</li></ul><p> </p><p>Together, these investments and incentives will stimulate the market to deliver the increase in capacity that is needed.</p><p> </p><p>Homes and businesses across the UK could - if they chose - upgrade to at least superfast speeds. Anyone can check what speeds are available to them by entering their postcode at <a href="http://gosuperfastchecker.culture.gov.uk/" target="_blank">http://gosuperfastchecker.culture.gov.uk</a>.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong><br> </strong></p>
