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>

star this property answer text <p>Section 9 of the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Act 2013 provides that civil partners may convert their civil partnership into marriage under regulations to be made by the Secretary of State, and that the resulting marriage will be treated as having subsisted since the date the civil partnership was formed. Civil partnerships and marriage are separate legal institutions so a process is required for conversion. We are working hard to ensure that couples wanting to convert their civil partnerships into marriages are able to do so as soon as possible. We aim to do this before the end of 2014.</p><p>These aspects of implementing the Act take longer because they involve developing and implementing completely new procedures and processes. This contrasts with the work to make new marriages for same-sex couples possible, where we were able to build on existing processes so implementation was more straightforward.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Office for National Statistics (ONS) is measuring National Wellbeing, not as an index but through a framework of 41 indicators which capture social progress around important aspects of life for individuals, communities and the nation. The statistics are experimental and as such we should not expect to have examples of major policies that have been heavily influenced by the wellbeing data at this stage.</p><p> </p><p>Since the introduction of the ONS framework for measuring National Wellbeing in 2011, DCMS has worked closely with the ONS to introduce sport and culture participation measures within ONS' national wellbeing headline measures for adults (May 2013). In January this year, measures of sport and culture were also included within ONS' initial national child wellbeing measures. DCMS' National Statistic ‘Taking Part', on culture and sport engagement, has measured subjective wellbeing since 2005/06. In 2012 ONS' subjective wellbeing questions were also added to support further analysis of wellbeing impacts.</p><p> </p><p>Our policies of ‘Getting more people playing sport' and ‘Supporting vibrant and sustainable arts and culture' are directly linked to ONS' national wellbeing measurement. DCMS continues to work to better understand and consider the impact of its sectors and policy on people's wellbeing across a number of the domains in ONS' national wellbeing measures including health, education, crime and unemployment. For example, in our recently released reports on ‘Quantifying the Social Impacts of Culture and Sport<sup>1</sup>' and ‘Quantifying and Valuing the Wellbeing Impacts of Culture and Sport<sup>2</sup>'</p><p> </p><p><sup>1</sup><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/quantifying-the-social-impacts-of-sport-and-culture" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/quantifying-the-social-impacts-of-sport-and-culture</a></p><p><sup>2 </sup><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/quantifying-and-valuing-the-wellbeing-impacts-of-culture-and-sport" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/quantifying-and-valuing-the-wellbeing-impacts-of-culture-and-sport</a></p><p> </p>
