star this property answer text <p>The Government is committed to working with the business community to create more inclusive workplaces from the shop floor to the boardroom. The Government commissioned and supports several business-led independent reviews, such as the Hampton-Alexander Review to increase the representation of women on boards and senior leadership positions in FTSE 350 companies to 33% by 2020 and the Parker Review to increase the ethnic diversity of FTSE 350 boards by 2024.</p><p>These reviews form part of the Government’s modern Industrial Strategy which aims to build an economy that works for all.</p><p>This business-led approach is working, with, for example, the representation of women on FTSE 100 boards rising to 30.9% from 12.5% in 2011.</p><p>Government agreed with my Noble friend’s recommendation that companies should set and publish aspirational diversity targets; and committed to lead from the front in the public sector. In June 2018 we published targets for the Civil Service to tackle the under-representation of ethnic minority staff in our most senior roles. If successful, we will approximately double the current proportion of new recruits from an ethnic minority to 13.2% by 2025.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The first set of data from Sport England’s world-leading Active Lives: Children and Young People survey was released in December 2018. It shows that only 10% of girls in years 9-11 (13-16) are reaching the Chief Medical Officers’ guidance of 60 minutes of physical activity every day. Levels of activity for girls aged over 16 are captured by the Active Lives (adult) survey, which has a slightly different methodology and so cannot be directly compared. Both surveys are available on Sport England’s website.</p><p> </p><p>Government is committed to addressing the gender gap in physical activity levels for boys and girls, including the drop-off in engagement from primary to secondary school. It is important that girls have access to the right sporting opportunities, both in and out of school.</p><p>This is something government committed to tackle in the Sporting Future strategy. This will also be addressed as part of the new School Sport and Activity Action Plan which will be published in the spring.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>Preventing suicide is a priority for Government, and we take new evidence on this matter very seriously.</p><p> </p><p>The longitudinal study on gambling disorder in Sweden indicated increased mortality, suicidality, and associated comorbidity rates of other disorders, among those with a clinical diagnosis of gambling disorder. However, the report also indicated that the factors contributing to suicide are multifactorial, which make it difficult to isolate the role gambling played when weighted against other co-morbid factors. In particular, it noted that depression was a significant predictor of suicide death. The report Gambling Behaviour in Great Britain 2016, which is based on the Health Surveys, shows a clear correlation between poor mental health and problem gambling.</p><p> </p><p>GambleAware has commissioned research to further our understanding of the links between problem gambling and suicide risk. This will include secondary analysis of the Adult Psychiatric Morbidity Survey to explore the relationship between problem gambling and the experience of suicidal thoughts, suicide attempts and non-suicidal self-harm among adults living in England. The government's Suicide Prevention Strategy, published in January this year, committed to improving research on factors related to suicide, such as debt and gambling addiction.</p><p> </p><p> </p>
