star this property answer text <p>In response to bringing forward legislative proposals to protect breastfeeding mothers at work, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is not proposing to introduce legislative changes to protect breastfeeding mothers in the workplace. Breastfeeding mothers are already protected under the Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992 (the Workplace Regulations)</p><p> </p><p>The Workplace Regulations require employers to provide suitable rest facilities for breastfeeding mothers. Employers are also recommended to provide a private, healthy and safe environment for nursing mothers to express and store milk. Comprehensive online guidance on how employers can meet their legal requirements can be found at <a href="https://eur02.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.hse.gov.uk%2Fmothers%2F&amp;data=02%7C01%7Cparlybranch.pqs%40beis.gov.uk%7Cd6523640efd34bf2d8b408d730890091%7Ccbac700502c143ebb497e6492d1b2dd8%7C0%7C0%7C637031237282951465&amp;sdata=cXmk3wvgYbAn72K18nJzCp2gVC%2BeKxtuVzyxlCXCEYM%3D&amp;reserved=0" target="_blank">http://www.hse.gov.uk/mothers/</a></p><p> </p><p>Research commissioned and published in 2016 by the Equality and Human Rights Commission and Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy found that almost all employers said they understood their legal responsibility to ensure a safe working environment for mothers returning from maternity leave. Often where difficulties arose in terms of health and safety, it was due to poor communication and a lack of ongoing discussion between managers and new and expectant mothers. HSE has published guidance which emphasises the importance of this to help address any issues or concerns. It can be found at <a href="https://eur02.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.hse.gov.uk%2Fpubns%2Findg373.pdf&amp;data=02%7C01%7Cparlybranch.pqs%40beis.gov.uk%7Cd6523640efd34bf2d8b408d730890091%7Ccbac700502c143ebb497e6492d1b2dd8%7C0%7C0%7C637031237282951465&amp;sdata=D063NUU8RU2o6UPt9j8P6j2%2ByaRGSuXeqLa%2F6faxvwE%3D&amp;reserved=0" target="_blank">http://www.hse.gov.uk/pubns/indg373.pdf</a></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p>On reducing the promotion of breast-milk substitutes, there is strict legislation currently in place in the form of the EU Directive (2006/141/EC) which regulates the composition, labelling and marketing of infant formulae and follow-on formulae. The Directive reflects scientific advice on the essential composition of infant formulae and follow-on formulae and discussions at an international level in the Codex Alimentarius forum. This Directive is implemented in England by the Infant Formula and Follow on Formula (England) Regulations 2007 and similar legislation applies in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. The Directive also gives effect to the principles and aims of the 1981 World Health Organisation (WHO) Code on the Marketing of Breastmilk Substitutes by regulating labelling and restricting advertising and presentation of infant so as not to discourage breastfeeding.</p><p> </p><p>The new Delegated Regulation (EU) 2016/127 will apply from 22nd February 2020; as a member state, the UK Government was fully involved and committed to the introduction of the new regime within the EU. In the event of EU Exit prior to 22 February 2020, the intention is therefore to make UK-wide legislation to mirror the delegated legislation as closely as possible, and to progress with implementation of the provisions.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The off-payroll working rules were introduced in 2000 and require that individuals who work like employees, but through their own company, pay similar taxes to employees. To increase compliance with the rules, from April 2020 responsibility for assessing the employment status of individuals will shift to engagers, who are better equipped to make determinations. Outside the public sector, the reform will not apply to the smallest 1.5 million organisations, minimising their administrative costs.</p><p> </p><p>On 11 July 2019 HMRC published a Tax Information and Impact Note setting out the costs to business of the reform.

This will continue to be the case whether we leave the EU with or without a deal.</p><p> </p><p>Half of the food we eat is produced in the UK. The rest of our food is imported, with 30% coming from the EU and 20% from other countries. There will not be an overall shortage of food in the UK as a result of a no deal Brexit. However, there may be fluctuations in the availability and choice of certain seasonal products, such as fresh fruit. The UK has a high degree of self-sufficiency in some vegetables year-round including root vegetables, cabbage and potatoes, as well as certain fruits during the summer harvest season including strawberries and apples.</p><p> </p><p>Over the last three years Government has been working to prioritise the smooth flow of trade, particularly at channel ports, to minimise any disruption if the UK leaves the EU without a deal. This includes cross Government work to ensure traders and hauliers in the UK and the EU are prepared for changes to exporting and importing requirements; ensuring our approach to imports achieves a smooth flow of goods at UK ports; working with stakeholders, major ports and airports to ensure that they are making their own preparations for leaving the EU; and developing traffic management plans to manage any potential delays at the ports, for example Operation Brock in Kent.</p><p> </p>

In addition, FCO and Defra commissioned a workshop in February 2019 which brought together UK universities, industry and consultancies involved in the assessment of deep sea mining activities, to share information, progress and research findings.
