star this property answer text <p>Solar PV is a UK success story. In 2013 we estimated that solar capacity would reach 10-12GW by 2020. We now expect Government support to bring forward around 13 GW by 2020. The Feed-in Tariff remains open to solar PV which provides an incentive for businesses to invest in rooftop solar.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Highways Agency is investing record amounts in roads, which includes making motorways ‘smarter', using technology to actively manage traffic flows to reduce congestion and improve safety. On most sections of smart motorway the hard shoulder is used to provide additional capacity for road users: either through being converted into a traffic lane permanently, or opened to traffic when needed during busy times.</p><p> </p><p>To date we have delivered 14 of these types of schemes, and are in the process of constructing a further 6. Following the Spending Review in 2013 there are now plans to deliver a further 18. Collectively this will see smart motorway applications covering around 437 miles of the strategic road network supporting the economy, reducing congestion and providing much needed additional capacity on the busiest motorways.</p><p> </p><p>Beyond this, the Department for Transport will be considering future enhancements within its route strategy proposals which are due to report next year and will establish outline operational and investment priorities for all routes in the strategic road network out to 2021.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The Claims Management Regulator (CMR) is making a number of reforms to provide better consumer protection, stricter conduct requirements and stronger enforcement action to improve practices in the claims management industry. The CMR will introduce in October a new set of conduct rules to crackdown on poor practices, particularly in relation to financial claims. The new rules will strengthen requirements for CMCs to ensure that claims are properly substantiated and any leads they receive through telemarketing are legally obtained. Subject to parliamentary approval, by the end of this year new legislation will give the CMR the power to fine CMCs for poor conduct. More resources have been deployed to tackle CMC non compliance and the names of CMCs under investigation or subject to recent enforcement action are now published on the GOV.UK website at: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/claims-management-regulator-enforcement-actions" target="_blank">www.gov.uk/government/publications/claims-management-regulator-enforcement-actions</a>. Reforms have also been made to the internal governance of the CMR. Two non executive members have been appointed to the executive-led CMR Board to help bring a greater element of independent challenge and continuous improvement.</p>
