star this property answer text <p> </p><p>DCMS is responsible for the policy that supports the growth of domestic and international tourism, working in partnership with other Government Departments and our Arms-Length Bodies, VisitBritain and VisitEngland. Between 2011 and 2015, Government is investing more than £105m in tourism through the GREAT and other international campaigns. Investment to date is showing positive results. 2013 was a record year for inbound tourism with 32.9 million international visits being made which generated a record £21 billion into the UK in 2013.</p><p>In terms of Berkshire specifically, VisitBritain's public-facing website includes a range of tourism information relating to Windsor which is available via the following link: <a href="http://www.visitbritain.com/en/Destinations-and-Maps/History-and-heritage/Windsor.htm" target="_blank">http://www.visitbritain.com/en/Destinations-and-Maps/History-and-heritage/Windsor.htm</a>. VisitBritain's ‘Heritage is GREAT' advertising campaign also prominently featured Highclere Castle, which is the setting for Downton Abbey.</p><p>The South East region will benefit from a number of thematic campaigns currently being run by VisitEngland which can be found at <a href="http://www.visitengland.com/" target="_blank">http://www.visitengland.com/</a>. It will also benefit from VisitEngland's Holidays at Home are GREAT campaign, which has been broadcast on mainstream terrestrial channels since 1 April, while those areas in the South East region affected by the recent floods are also benefitting from both VisitEngland's ‘Spot on England' marketing campaign and business support events.</p>

However, the Government will not intervene in voluntary funding arrangements which are a matter for the Greyhound industry and its funders.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Any person or organisation handling personal information about individuals (including financial details) has a number of legal obligations to protect that information under the Data Protection Act 1998. These obligations are amplified in the current National Lottery licence (Section 22 on data protection), which runs until 2023. In addition, Camelot states in its privacy policy (<a href="http://www.national-lottery.co.uk/player/p/privacypolicy.ftl" target="_blank">http://www.national-lottery.co.uk/player/p/privacypolicy.ftl</a>): ‘The Company will not sell your personal information to third parties.' As far as other Lotteries are concerned, the requirements of the Data Protection Act 1998 apply as usual, but there are no specific licence conditions - and there are no plans to introduce any.</p><p><strong> </strong></p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>To answer each of these points in turn:</p><p>a) DCMS uses Department for Transport cost of fatality estimates where relevant to policy development. For instance, this valuation technique was used recently as part of the assessment of costs associated with allowing motor sport on closed roads.</p><p>b) DCMS follows valuation guidance set out in HM Treasury's Green Book, including the use of willingness to pay techniques, to proportionately assess the impact of policy interventions. Willingness to pay has been used as part of the DCMS cost-benefit analysis of Digital Radio Switchover, for example. DCMS also recommends Green Book valuation techniques are used by our ALBs to inform spending decisions.</p><p>c) DCMS uses the Quality Adjusted Life Year approach where relevant to policy development. To take an example, the Culture and Sport Evidence programme that DCMS shares with a range of ALB partners has developed a Quality Adjusted Live Year approach for physical health benefits of sport, which Sport England use to assess local impacts.</p><p>Other techniques used to assess benefits of interventions include macro-economic modelling to assess the impacts of both the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games and superfast broadband investment funded by the Department.</p>
