unstar this property answer text <p>The Government will create the UK Shared Prosperity Fund once we have left the European Union. The UK Shared Prosperity Fund will strengthen the foundations of productivity as set out in our modern Industrial Strategy to support people to benefit from economic prosperity. This new Fund will ensure that investments are targeted effectively to align with the challenges faced by places, creating a fresh opportunity to focus investment according to our own priorities. We are continuing to work on the design and priorities and we will consult widely on the UK Shared Prosperity Fund. This will give all interested parties the chance to contribute their views to Government. Final decisions are due to be made during the Spending Review.</p> more like this

The approach we are using to assess the need for investment into rail infrastructure in South Wales will remain unchanged after the UK leaves the EU.

unstar this property answer text <p>In response to the Independent Breast Screening Review 2018, the United Kingdom National Screening Committee (UK NSC) has commissioned work to help clarify what the upper screening age in breast should be and discussed the findings at its meeting in February. The recommendation will be made to Ministers and minutes of the UK NSC meeting will be made available six weeks after the meeting at the following link:</p><p> </p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/groups/uk-national-screening-committee-uk-nsc" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/groups/uk-national-screening-committee-uk-nsc</a></p><p> </p><p>We continue to wait for the results of the Age Extension Trial to help provide the evidence needed to better understand what the benefits and harms are when offering screening outside the current recommended screening age.</p><p> </p><p>Regarding the age for cervical screening, women will stop receiving routine invitations once they reach 65 unless they need ongoing surveillance or follow up. The natural history of cervical cancer means that it is unlikely that women over this age who have been regularly screened will go on to develop cervical cancer; furthermore, we know that screening becomes more uncomfortable for women as the cervix is less visible after menopause.</p>
