unstar this property answer text <p>The Government is committed to supporting all victims of domestic abuse.</p><p>My Department does not hold information on the availability of refuges for victims of domestic abuse in (a) Lewisham Borough and (b) London. However, I am pleased to confirm that London Borough of Lewisham were successful in their bid for both the 2016-18 £20 million and the 2018-20 £22 million funds, partnering with the service provider Refuge and building upon their refuge provision and improving support for victims of domestic abuse with complex needs.</p><p>Through the 2016-18 fund London Borough of Lewisham was awarded £114,224 over the two years, including receiving a share of the £1.1 million top up funding. In the current 2018-20 fund London Borough of Lewisham has been awarded £90,075, with the first instalment being released December 2018 and the remaining to be released in the 2019/20 financial year. London Borough of Lewisham were among 19 successful projects submitted by London Boroughs securing a total investment of £5,764,849.</p><p>My Department has also carried out a review of how domestic abuse services are locally commissioned and funded across England. We have worked closely with sector partners, drawing on their data, expertise and knowledge. Following the review, we intend to consult on potential measures for sustainable delivery of support for victims and their children in accommodation-based services for domestic abuse across England shortly.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>The sheep sector plays a vital role in contributing to rural life, local economies and the iconic landscapes of the UK. With over 50% of the national flock being in Wales and Scotland, the sheep sector is an important sector across the UK.</p><p> </p><p>The climate and topography of the UK mean that much of it is unsuited to commercial crop production, especially in Wales, Scotland and the north and west of England, where livestock production is the main use of agricultural land. Sheep are a major part of that, with breeds adapted to thrive in areas of harsh climate, topography and low feed-value vegetation. Furthermore, grazing of sheep has a key role in maintaining open habitats, primarily grasslands and heathlands, by hindering succession to scrub or woodland in the lowlands and sub-montane zone. In doing so they are an important land management resource.</p><p> </p><p>We are currently developing our own farming policies as we prepare to leave the EU. Our intention, as laid out in the Agriculture Bill, is for our future policies to primarily reward farmers for providing environmental benefits. We are currently working with farmers, land managers and representative bodies including the National Farmers Union, Tenant Farmers Association and National Sheep Association to ensure that our future Environmental Land Management system can work with livestock farms including sheep farms in lowland and upland areas.</p><p> </p><p>Defra undertakes and coordinates research across the whole food production system, looking at factors including environmental impacts, productivity, efficiency, waste reduction etc. This includes research into sustainable diets, local and seasonal produce, environmental labelling, supply chain efficiency, and sustainable consumption.</p>
