Over 145,000 have started a work experience placement and over 46,000 have started a sector based work academy that provides work experience and pre-employment training. Surveys show that over 40 percent of young people have reported having had a job since going into a work experience placement or on a sector-based work academy.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p>Our new Help to Work Scheme will offer further tailored in-depth support for the very long term unemployed, and in-work claimants will receive support to progress within the workplace. Universal Credit will provide support for working-age people who are in or out of work.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Benefit and lump sum payments that were made in respect of mesothelioma will be recovered from the Diffuse Mesothelioma Payment Scheme (DMPS) payment in the same way as they would be recovered from other compensation payments. The latest Impact Assessment for the DMPS dated 10 March 2014 estimates that the recovery of benefits in the first 10 years of the Scheme, to 31 March 2024, will be £72m.</p><p> </p><p>The issue of research is not directly a matter for the Department for Work and Pensions; however we have worked closely with the Department of Health to make progress in this area. This work has included setting up a partnership to identify mesothelioma research priorities which will lead to the National Institute for Health Research turning priorities into fundable research questions and to encourage applications from the research community. In addition the National Cancer Research Institute has a workshop planned on 02 May 2014 to discuss and develop new proposals for mesothelioma studies. The Government has established robust systems to ensure that funding is provided to the highest quality research bids. The work that the Department of Health is taking forward will support researchers in producing these bids and ensure that funding is allocated in a way that best supports sufferers of this terrible condition.</p>

The Government has set aside £1 billion to support the first CCS projects in the UK, and is investing around £100m now to take two innovative projects forward into the detailed engineering and design phase known as FEED.</p><p> </p><p>The Peterhead and White Rose FEED studies have now commenced. We have taken time to develop a detailed FEED programme that will deliver the outputs necessary to take a final investment decision with confidence. The companies involved will take investment decisions in late 2015, with Government taking decisions shortly after.
