Employment Status is not a choice but depends on the facts of the engagement. Given that most actors and performers are self-employed and unaffected by off-payroll rules (often known as IR35), they will not be affected by off-payroll reform in 2020 and do not pay Class 1 National Insurance. There are no plans to change this.</p> more like this

This has delivered a 61% reduction in the amount of polluting phosphorus and a 72% reduction in the amount of ammonia discharged from wastewater treatment works since 1995. In addition, 7,000 combined sewer overflows have been improved, reducing the impact of pollution from sewage discharges.</p><p><em> </em></p><p>In the current investment period (2015-2020) the water companies are investing over £3 billion to improve their sewage treatment and sewerage infrastructure. During the next investment period (2020-2025), plans have been put forward to deliver over £4.5 billion on environmental improvements. These include:</p><p> </p><p>(a) Modernisation of around 2,300 wastewater treatment works to meet environmental quality standards such as those required by the Water Framework Directive, Bathing Waters Directive and Urban Wastewater Treatment Directive.</p><p> </p><p>(b) Increasing the capacity of around 550 wastewater treatment works and storm tanks to ensure that they are treating the correct amount of sewage flow and to accommodate future growth.</p><p> </p><p>(c) Investing in sewerage infrastructure improvement to monitor and reduce the frequency and volume of storm sewage discharged from combined sewer overflows.</p>

star this property answer text <p>There has been no current assessment of this report. The evidence is clear that income and physical and mental health outcomes are closely associated. The NHS Long Term Plan for the National Health Service, backed by an extra £33.9 billion a year in cash terms by 2023/24, puts prevention at its heart and early intervention is key. The Government is supporting this with an additional £2.3 billion a year to expand mental health services and help ensure 345,000 more children and young people under 25 receive mental health support by 2023/24. Tackling the root cause of poverty remains a priority for this Government and some families need more support. The Government is continuing to spend £95 billion a year on working-age benefits and provide free school meals to more than one million of the country’s most disadvantaged children.</p> more like this

When we revised the National Planning Policy Framework in 2018 we undertook careful consideration of all the responses to our consultation, including those endorsing greater flexibilities over Green Belt Land. Our new approach ensures we consider the purposes of Green Belt, the need to ensure that only suitable land is released for dwellings, and the principle that elected local authorities should determine, using the development plan process and local consultation, where new homes could be built and where development should be restrained. If justified and evidenced exceptional circumstances arise, a local authority is already able to review a Green Belt boundary, and propose alterations through its development plan. <br></p><p> </p> more like this
