star this property answer text <p>Within the Diocese of Blackburn seven churches and churchyards, the diocesan retreat house at Whalley Abbey and three Church of England primary schools were damaged by floodwater. Many have also found that the boilers and heating systems have been damaged beyond repair and extensive programmes of works will need to be undertaken to both dry the buildings out and restore or replace furniture, carpets and school materials.</p><p>Reports of damage are still being registered across the Dioceses of Blackburn, Carlisle, Manchester, West Yorkshire and the Dales and York. To date 129 church properties have registered substantial damage from the December storms with our insurers, though I expect that figure to rise. The Cathedral and Church Buildings Council of the Church of England will be working with the dioceses to develop robust disaster management and recovery plans and flood adaptation measures for churches and other buildings.</p><p><strong>Within the Blackburn Diocese</strong></p><table><tbody><tr><td><p><strong>Parish Name / building</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Grade or * listing / Status</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Type of damage</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>St Michael’s on Wyre</p></td><td><p>Grade 1</p></td><td><p>Water damage and damage to the boiler</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>St Michael's, Much Hoole</p></td><td><p>Grade 2*</p></td><td><p>Water damage and damage to the boiler</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>St Mary the Virgin, Eccleston</p></td><td><p>Grade 2*</p></td><td><p>Water damage</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>St Michael &amp; All Angels, Croston</p></td><td><p>Grade 2*</p></td><td><p>Severe water damage</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>St John the Evangelist, Lancaster (Incare of Churches Conservation Trust)</p></td><td><p>Grade 2*</p></td><td><p>Severe water damage</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>St John the Baptist, Tunstall</p></td><td><p>Grade 1</p></td><td><p>Damage to the boiler</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>St Wilfrid's, Ribchester</p></td><td><p>Grade 1</p></td><td><p>Damage to the graveyard and loss of many burials and monuments</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Whalley Abbey</p></td><td><p>Grade 1 and Scheduled Ancient Monument</p></td><td><p>Major water damage to the Abbey building</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Kirkland &amp; Catterall St. Helen's CofE School <br></p></td><td><p>Primary School</p></td><td><p>Severe water damage</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>St. Michael's on Wyre C of E School</p></td><td><p>Primary School</p></td><td><p>Major water damage</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Whalley CofE School</p></td><td><p>Primary School</p></td><td><p>Basement flooded and water damage</p></td></tr></tbody></table>

star this property answer text <p>The Diocese of Blackburn has been coordinating with its local Gold Command support centre and with Churches Together. Within Preston the Diocese and local churches have set up an emergency centre at the railway station. An additional emergency centre was also set up in Morecambe alongside smaller centres supported by the Diocese in Ribchester and Walton le Dale. In St Michael’s on Wyre the church has also been offering support to the army who were deployed in the parish.</p><p>These centres have been an invaluable support to local communities as a central hub for information and support. In addition local communities have been providing hot food and warm clothing to those who have been flooded out and to relief workers. Churches Together in Lancashire have been coordinating a wider response amongst local denominations and this has enabled many local churches to respond quickly and in those places where their help is most needed.</p><br /> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Political Parties, Elections and Referendums Act 2000 (PPERA) sets out the spending limits that apply during the regulated referendum period at UK-wide referendums. The duration of the referendum period for the referendum on the UK’s membership of the European Union will be set out in secondary legislation.</p><p>PPERA does not set total spending limits for each of the referendum outcomes; rather it applies spending limits to individual campaigners that take part in the debate.</p><p>The Commission is already monitoring the campaigning activities of potential referendum campaigners so that it can identify any emerging issues and offer advice and guidance to those that intend to campaign at the referendum. Once the rules come into force, the Commission’s campaign monitoring will inform the use, if necessary and appropriate, of its enforcement and sanctioning powers where the rules are not followed.</p><p>For the EU Referendum, Parliament increased the limits set out in PPERA to take account of inflation. The limits for political parties that register to campaign in support of a particular outcome are allocated according to the party’s share of the vote at the last UK Parliamentary general election. Campaigners that do not register with the Commission are limited to spending £10,000. The new limits are set out in the table below:</p><br /><table><tbody><tr><td><p><br></p></td><td><p><strong>EU Referendum Bill spending limits for a referendum held before 31 December 2017</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2015 UK general election vote share</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong>Limits for designated lead campaigners</strong></p></td><td><p>£7,000,000</p></td><td><p>-</p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong>Limits for political parties with:</strong></p></td><td><p><br></p></td><td><p><br></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>&gt;30% share of the vote</p></td><td><p>£7,000,000</p></td><td><p>Conservative (36.8%)</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>&gt;20-30% share of the vote</p></td><td><p>£5,500,000</p></td><td><p>Labour (29%[1])</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>&gt;10-20% share of the vote</p></td><td><p>£4,000,000</p></td><td><p>UKIP (12.6%)</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>&gt;5-10% share of the vote</p></td><td><p>£3,000,000</p></td><td><p>Liberal Democrat (7.9%)</p></td></tr><tr><td></td><td><p>£700,000</p></td><td><p>SNP (4.7%) Green (3.8%) DUP (0.6%) Plaid Cymru (0.6%) Sinn Fein (0.6%) SDLP (0.3%) UUP (0.4%) Plus all other parties that stood at least one candidate at 2015 UKPGE</p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong>Limits for other registered campaigners</strong></p></td><td><p>£700,000</p></td><td><p>-</p></td></tr></tbody></table><br /><p>[1] Labour Party share of the vote is adjusted because votes cast for joint candidates are divided by the number of parties the candidate is standing for i.e. Labour / Co-op candidates (PPERA Sch14, para 1(4))</p>

star this property answer text <p>The UK has always and will continue to operate our borders securely and enforce our immigration laws. This includes carrying out full checks on all arriving passengers in order to identify any criminal, security and immigration concerns. All passengers are checked against police, security and immigration watchlists and where we are aware of individuals who pose a risk, Border Force officers can, and do refuse them entry. However, that requires other countries to inform us of individual’s criminal histories.</p><p>This Government has also introduced a new power to enable the UK to require entry clearance applicants to provide an overseas criminal record certificate, helping to reduce overseas offenders gaining visas to enter the UK. From 1 September 2015, Tier 1 Investor and Tier 1 Entrepreneur entry clearance applicants and their adult dependents are now required to provide a criminal record certificate from the country/countries in which they have been living for the past ten years. This will be rolled out to other categories at a later stage on a phased basis.</p><p>The UK is leading calls in Europe to improve the sharing of criminal records information between Member States, allowing us better to identify criminals before they try and enter the UK. This includes accelerating work to develop a more comprehensive system for sharing information on non-EU nationals who receive criminal convictions within the EU. In the light of the unprecedented migratory flows into Europe, the UK is leading calls for systematic and complete identification, registration and fingerprinting of those entering the EU as well as greater sharing of information about those who pose a risk. The Home Office is also leading work to progress recommendations from a project to tackle serious offending by mobile EU criminals (SOMEC Project). This project examines the threat from offenders crossing internal EU borders who pose a risk.</p>

Current policy requires referral of the following categories of project licence application:</p><p>• the use of wild-caught non-human primates;</p><p>• the use of cats, dogs, equidae or non-human primates in severe procedures;</p><p>• use of endangered species;</p><p>• projects with major animal welfare or ethical implications;</p><p>• projects involving the use of admixed embryos falling into category 3 of the Academy of Medical Science report on Animals Containing Human Material and category 2 where the predominance of an admixed embryo is unclear or uncertain;</p><p>• projects which may invoke any of the ‘safeguard clauses’ in the Directive with respect to the purpose of primate use, proposals for the use of a great ape, or proposals to cause long-lasting pain, suffering or distress that cannot be ameliorated; or</p><p>• projects of any kind raising novel or contentious issues, or giving rise to serious societal concerns.</p><p>In 2014, the most recent year for which we have data available, the ASC provided advice on four project licences. These were subsequently granted by the Home Office. The numbers of licences the ASC provided advice on in 2015 will be published in the ASC Annual Report later this year.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Ministry of Justice publishes data at: https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/tribunals-statistics on the total number of appeals disposed at the First-Tier Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum) which includes all types of immigration appeal. Due to the way that data is recorded on Home Office systems, overseas appeals have been excluded from the data set included in the table attachment. The data also excludes paper cases at which a Home Office representative is not required.</p><p>The Home Office is usually represented at appeal hearings by a Home Office Presenting Officer acting as a Crown representative on behalf of the Secretary of State for the Home Department (SSHD) in immigration appeals pursuant to s84 (6) of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999. Section 84 of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999 covers who can act as legal representatives in immigration appeals. Subsection 6 specifies that persons acting on behalf of the Crown or relevant Government Department can represent the SSHD at immigration appeals and do not need to be a legally qualified person. However in some cases barristers have also been used.</p><p>The proportion of oral appeals not represented increased between January – September 2015 in comparison to the previous 2 years. This was the result of the availability of Presenting resource in the Home Office to match court listing schedules which varied from forecasts used for planning purposes to a significant extent. Resources were put in place to ensure that representation rates increased in the final three months of the calendar year.</p>
