star this property answer text <p>The government received 162,000 responses to its call for evidence on single-use plastic, including 222 from companies, trade bodies, environmental charities, and other organisations. It also engaged directly with over 100 organisations. Last summer, we published a summary of these responses and the Budget decision draws on that, considering the range of alternatives that are available.</p><p> </p><p>There is no practical way to apply the tax to just hot drink cups, meaning that a tax would have to be placed on all types of disposable plastic cup, including plastic and plastic-lined cups used for cold drinks. The government has concluded that there is not good evidence that a tax would lead to a significant increase in reuse for these at this time.</p><p> </p><p>Businesses are already taking steps to reduce the impact of disposable cups. The government expects industry to go further and will return to the issue if sufficient progress is not made.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Chancellor has been clear that raising productivity is the only way to expand the economy in the long term. Doing so will mean encouraging growth in the manufacturing sector, boosting the adoption of technology and enabling more British firms to export. That’s why we increased the National Productivity Investment Fund to £37bn at Budget 2018, and have announced a wide range of productivity enhancing measures at previous fiscal events. Most recently this has included £81 million for a new extreme photonics centre in Oxfordshire, £45 million for the European Bioinformatics Institute, and £79 million for a new supercomputer to be hosted at Edinburgh University.</p><p> </p> more like this

The Infrastructure Finance Review, launched at the Spring Statement, explores future challenges in infrastructure finance, including new technologies, and seeks views on the Government’s existing tools. The review will conclude alongside the National Infrastructure Strategy at the Spending Review later this year. The Government also provides support for business and emerging technologies Research and Development (R&amp;D) through a wide range of measures, including the largest increase in direct public R&amp;D spending in 40 years, R&amp;D tax reliefs, and the £2.5bn British Patient Capital programme, enabling long-term investment in innovative companies.</p><p> </p><p>Government support announced following the Patient Capital Review means that the British Business Bank has the capacity to make venture capital commitments this financial year that would exceed the combined average annual commitments from the European Investment Fund and British Business Bank in the years preceding the UK’s vote to leave the EU. In April, the government made an additional £200m support for venture capital and growth finance available through the British Business Bank to support the financing of smaller businesses.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The National Infrastructure Commission made over 50 recommendations to the government, in their National Infrastructure Assessment (NIA) published in July 2018. As announced at Budget 2018, the government will respond in full to the NIA through a National Infrastructure Strategy, including on the installation rate of energy efficiency measures in the building stock.</p><p> </p><p>The government has already set out an ambitious aspiration on energy efficiency in the Clean Growth Strategy, for as many homes as possible to reach EPC Band C by 2035 where practical, cost-effective and affordable; and the Prime Minister has announced an Industrial Strategy mission to at least halve the energy use of new buildings by 2030. The government has a growing programme of ambitious policies to drive forward progress towards this aspiration, including extending the Energy Company Obligation from 2022 to 2028 to support more than £3bn of investment to upgrade the energy efficiency of around a million more homes, tightening the regulations on minimum energy efficiency standards in private rented homes, and announcing the introduction of a Future Homes Standard to ensure that all new homes are built with world-leading levels of energy efficiency and low-carbon heating. The government is further considering the detail of these policies, in order to unlock the necessary energy efficiency improvements for homes and businesses during the 2020s.</p><p> </p><p>At Spring Statement, the Chancellor confirmed that the National Infrastructure Strategy will be published later in 2019, alongside the Spending Review and Autumn Budget. The Spending Review will determine the government’s spending priorities going forward, assessing spending in the round against government priorities and a broad evidence base. As part of that evidence base, HM Treasury guidance in the Green Book sets out the methodology by which Departments should undertake cost-benefit analysis for all proposals that concern public spending and changes to regulations, including for energy efficiency and broader infrastructure requirements. These are scrutinised by Treasury spending teams to support decision making and ensure value for money. Impact Assessments associated with particular policy proposals are published online at: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications</a>.</p>
