However, the Government is committed to increasing cycling and walking and making our roads safer for vulnerable users, including cyclists and pedestrians.</p><p> </p><p>The benefits of cycling and walking are considerable. For people, it means cheaper travel and better health. For businesses, it means increased productivity and increased footfall in shops. And for society as a whole it means less congestion, better air quality, and vibrant, attractive places and communities.</p><p> </p><p>The Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy, published in 2017, sets out the Government’s plans for cycling and walking, with an ambition up to 2040 for “making cycling and walking the natural choices for short journeys or as part of a longer journey”. The strategy also identifies £2 billion of financial resources which may be invested in cycling and walking during the Spending Review 2015 settlement period 2016/17-2020/21.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Article 130 of the Withdrawal Agreement provides for the relative stability keys for the allocation of fishing opportunities to be maintained during the implementation period. This provision is intended to ensure that the UK’s share of quota cannot be reduced and that the UK will continue to be able to invoke Hague Preference during the implementation period. The recitals to the basic Common Fisheries Policy Regulation (Regulation 1380/2013) make clear that relative stability should take account of the Hague Resolution and therefore this would be included in the reference to ‘relative stability keys’ in Article 130.</p> more like this

The key mechanism for this activity is the Food and Drink Sector Council, which has identified skills as a key priority. Options to support and improve engagement with agri-food apprenticeships, as well as wider skills related issues, are being developed as part of the work of the Workforce and Skills Group of the Council.</p>
