It is for individual councils to determine whether they wish to sign up to such a voluntary, local government-led initiative.</p><p> </p><p>Notwithstanding, as stated in the Government’s 2011 <em>Tobacco Control Plan for England</em>, we recognise there may be legitimate operational reasons for local authorities to deal with the tobacco industry, such as action by trading standards to tackle the illicit tobacco trade (which is frequently linked to low-level and large-scale organised crime; costs taxpayers’ money through tax evasion; and makes it easier for children to smoke).</p><p> </p><p>Moreover, further to the Government’s recent evidence to the Communities and Local Government Select Committee inquiry on litter (21 October 2014, Reference LIT0093), we believe that councils and the wider public sector, as well as manufacturers and associated trade bodies, need to work together to tackle smoking-related litter – especially given the public smoking ban has increased smoking outside. Councils now have public health responsibilities, but this should not prevent joint working on litter and action to keep our streets clean.</p><p> </p><p>In both cases, we would recommend that all dealings are fully transparent.</p><p> </p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p /> <p>The National Offender Management Service (NOMS) is aware of the interest in promoting boxing as a prisoner activity and believes that their current policy to prohibit combat sports is correct.</p><p> </p><p>A strong case may be made for the potential benefits of a scheme that provides prisoners with a productive activity and a route to employment after release. NOMS recognises the importance of physical education in supporting offenders to deal with their violent behaviour and concentrates its resource on its existing range of sporting activities and support programmes with a clear evidence base already available in prisons that effectively deal with many of the benefits associated with sports of this nature and prisoners reintegrating back into the community. I have decided not to progress this particular proposal in prisons.</p><p> </p><p>I am also alive to the risk that a prisoner might use what he learns to inflict violence on other prisoners and staff.</p><p> </p><p>I do however fully appreciate the positive impact that being a member of a sports club on release can give. The National Offender Management Service is keen to discuss options for how they can improve links between Boxing England and prisons so that prisoners can benefit upon release.</p>

star this property answer text <p>In 2014-15, the London Borough of Ealing is forecast to receive £421 million in government grants, excluding mandatory housing benefits. Including mandatory housing benefits, the forecast is £701 million (source: Revenue Account Budget returns).</p><p> </p><p>Total grants (excluding mandatory housing benefits) are forecast to be equivalent to £3,224 per dwelling, which is in the top twenty highest grants to any local authority in England. Ealing residents will also benefit from funding given to the Greater London Authority for its statutory functions (e.g. police, fire, transport, strategic housing and planning). The Greater London Authority is forecast to receive £4.5 billion in government grant, equivalent to a London average of £1,311 per dwelling in 2014-15. Taken together, this is equivalent to £4,535 per dwelling in Ealing.</p><p> </p><p>Leaving aside school spending which has changed due to the funding shift from Local Education Authorities to Academies, in 2014-15, Ealing’s net current expenditure excluding education services is forecast to be £541 million (source: Revenue Account Budget returns). This compares with £450 million in 2009-10 (source: Revenue Outturn Summary returns). This represents a 20 per cent increase in cash terms.</p><p> </p><p>I am aware that the local council leader is claiming that Ealing’s funding will be cut to £5 million in 2018. Not only is this manifestly untrue given no funding settlement has been determined beyond 2015-16, but the figures above illustrate how council services actually remain well funded. Of course, every bit of the public sector needs to do its bit to pay off the deficit left by the last Labour Government, including local government which accounts for a quarter of all public spending. Yet the claims in some parts of the local government sector about “cuts” are completely over-stated and actually mislead the public.</p>
