star this property answer text The vast majority of parents apply for and use their childcare account without problems, including getting their 30 hours eligibility code. Where parents have experienced technical issues, HMRC has arrangements in place to ensure that they do not miss out as a result. Manual codes are issued to enable parents to access a 30 hours place when they are eligible if they cannot get a digital code within the required timeline. The number of manual codes issued has been decreasing since September 2017 as the system has become embedded and enhanced.<p> </p>To 31 October 2018, HMRC has received 4,560 complaints from parents who have experienced technical issues with the childcare service.<p> </p>To 31 October 2018, HMRC has issued 35,370 codes manually to parents.<p> </p>To 31 October 2018, HMRC has paid out £200,000 in redress to parents for expenses such as telephone calls to the helpline. more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government’s position in relation to funding Surface Access at airports is set out in the 2013 Aviation Policy Framework and reiterated in the Airports National Policy Statement which was designated in June 2018. Where a scheme is not solely required to deliver airport capacity and has a wider range of beneficiaries, the Government, along with relevant stakeholders, will consider the need for a public funding contribution alongside an appropriate contribution from the airport on a case by case basis. The Government is supporting Heathrow Surface Access schemes subject to the development of a satisfactory business case and the agreement of acceptable terms with the Heathrow aviation industry.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government is committed to maintaining the UK’s position as a world leader in science and innovation and has introduced a wide range of policies to stimulate private sector investment in Research and Development, ranging from increases in government funding of R&amp;D to improvements to the wider institutional and tax environment for R&amp;D and a new patient capital investment programme. Internationally, the UK is a highly attractive place for R&amp;D, ranking 4<sup>th</sup> on the 2018 global innovation index.</p><p> </p><p>Since 2016, the Government has committed an additional £7bn of public funding to R&amp;D by 2021-22. This is the largest boost by any government for 40 years and will leverage significant private investment. On average, every public pound spent on R&amp;D generates an additional £1.36 of private spending. In addition, support for businesses through R&amp;D tax credits has tripled since 2010, reaching £3.5 billion in 2016/17.</p><p> </p><p>At Autumn Budget 2017, the government announced a 10-year action plan to unlock over £20bn to finance growth in innovative firms, including launching a new £2.5bn investment programme, British Patient Capital, and extending the Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) and Venture Capital Trusts (VCTs).</p><p> </p><p>Taken together, these policies will accelerate private investment in R&amp;D, building on the healthy real-terms growth of 26 per cent we experienced between 2010 and 2016 (the last year of official data).</p>

Project finance and commercial skills therefore remain highly valued and critical to infrastructure delivery for government.
