As a result of our existing policies, including carbon pricing and our support for renewables, we have already made great headway in reducing our reliance on coal, which fell from 39% of electricity in 2012 to 5% in 2018. There are now regular coal free periods, and in May the UK went without running coal power generation for over two weeks – the longest coal-free period in the country since the 1880s.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Through the National Living Wage (NLW) and National Minimum Wage (NMW), the Government ensures that the lowest paid in our society are fairly rewarded for their work. April 2019’s increase to the NLW will see nearly 1.8 million workers in the UK receive a 4.9% pay rise. A full-time worker on the NLW will now be more than £2,750 better off over the year compared to when it was first announced in 2015.</p><p> </p><p>The table below provides estimates for the number and proportion of jobs in the UK and Yorkshire and the Humber on the NLW and NMW in 2019. The most recent available data for Barnsley, and South Yorkshire, shows that there were an estimated 5,500 workers and 47,200 workers respectively who were on the NLW or NMW.</p><table><tbody><tr><td colspan="2"><p><ins class="ministerial"><strong>National Living Wage</strong></ins></p></td><td colspan="2"><p><ins class="ministerial"><strong>National Minimum Wage</strong></ins></p></td></tr><tr><td><p><ins class="ministerial"><em>Number of jobs</em></ins></p></td><td><p><ins class="ministerial"><em>% of jobs</em></ins></p></td><td><p><ins class="ministerial"><em>Number of jobs</em></ins></p></td><td><p><ins class="ministerial"><em>% of jobs</em></ins></p></td></tr><tr><td><p><ins class="ministerial">UK</ins></p></td><td><p><ins class="ministerial">1,762,000</ins></p></td><td><p><ins class="ministerial">7.2%</ins></p></td><td><p><ins class="ministerial">341,000</ins></p></td><td><p><ins class="ministerial">9.8%</ins></p></td></tr><tr><td><p><ins class="ministerial">Yorkshire and the Humber</ins></p></td><td><p><ins class="ministerial">172,000</ins></p></td><td><p><ins class="ministerial">8.8%</ins></p></td><td><p><ins class="ministerial">36,000</ins></p></td><td><p><ins class="ministerial">12.0%</ins></p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government believes that carbon capture, usage and storage (CCUS) has the potential to play an important role in meeting the UK’s climate targets. CCUS can add value to the economy and help tackle hard to decarbonise sectors.</p><p>The Government published its CCUS Action Plan in November 2018, designed to progress CCUS in the UK, including enabling the UK’s first CCUS facility to be operational from the mid-2020s. The Government is investing over £50 million in CCUS innovation support between 2017 and March 2021.</p><p>CCUS is also likely to play an important role in achieving our Industrial Clusters Mission, creating the world’s first net-zero industrial cluster by 2040. This is supported by up to £170 million from the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund to support the deployment of low carbon technologies and enabling infrastructure in one or more clusters. In addition, through our Industrial Energy Transformation Fund we are investing £315 million to support businesses with high energy use to cut their bills and emissions through increased energy efficiency and transition to a low carbon future through the use of lower carbon energy and processes. This may support CCUS projects.</p><p>In March this year, the Government launched the CCUS Advisory Group. Backed by government and industry support, the Group will provide advice on the potential incentives and regulations needed for the development of a new UK market in CCUS.</p><p>The Government is also working with other governments to promote the development of CCUS internationally. We hosted, with the International Energy Agency, the Global CCUS Summit in Edinburgh last November which brought together world energy leaders from governments and industry to accelerate the global progress of CCUS and co-lead the CCUS initiatives under both Mission Innovation and the Clean Energy Ministerial.</p><p> </p>
