However, as a responsible government we continue to plan for a range of exit scenarios, including a no-deal. The welfare system provides a strong safety net. A system of hardship payments, benefit advances and budgeting loans will be available for those who need them.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>As set out in the technical notice, the Government’s primary goal is to ensure that the UK patent system continues to function effectively in the event of a no deal exit. This requires a small amount of legislative change. In February 2019, Parliament approved the <a href="http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2019/801/made" target="_blank">Patents (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019</a>, which corrected deficiencies in retained EU law relating to patents.

It continues to engage with stakeholders on the impacts of exit and preparation for a no deal scenario.</p><p> </p><p>A further statutory instrument is required to address inoperabilities in a new piece of patents-related EU legislation which entered into force earlier this month. A <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/supplementary-protection-certificate-waiver-no-deal-legislation" target="_blank">public call for views</a> on the drafting of this instrument opened on 5 July 2019.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Copyright is largely harmonised internationally by a number of treaties to which the UK is signatory. This means that much of the copyright framework in the UK is not dependent on membership of the EU and will remain intact when we leave.</p><p>However, some UK copyright law is derived from the EU copyright framework; hence there are references in UK law to the “EU”, the “EEA”, and “Member States”. Some of these references arise from the UK’s implementation of certain EU cross-border copyright mechanisms. These are unique to the EU and provide reciprocal protections and benefits between Member States, covering areas such as cross-border portability of online content services, sui generis database rights, and copyright clearance for satellite broadcasting.</p><p>To ensure UK copyright law functions properly if the UK leaves the EU without a deal, the Government introduced <a href="https://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2019/605/contents/made" target="_blank">The Intellectual Property (Copyright and Related Rights) (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019</a>. This removes or corrects references to the EU, EEA, or Member States in UK copyright legislation to preserve the effect of UK law where possible. For reciprocal cross-border mechanisms where continuing to extend provisions to the EU on a unilateral basis after exit would adversely affect those in the UK, we are limiting the mechanisms to operate on a purely domestic basis or bringing them to an end, as appropriate. <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/changes-to-copyright-law-in-the-event-of-no-deal" target="_blank">Guidance for stakeholders</a> has been published alongside this.</p><p>Although the UK is leaving the EU, UK and EU copyright works (e.g. books, films and music) will continue to be protected in the EU and UK respectively because of the international treaties on copyright (e.g. the Berne Convention and the TRIPS Agreement), which require all treaty countries to protect works originating in any other treaty country to a minimum standard. Our participation in these treaties does not depend on our membership of the EU.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Government takes train punctuality seriously and understands it is crucial to passengers and freight users. That is why Government agreed a Network Rail settlement for England and Wales of £47.9bn for Control Period 6 specifically aimed at maintaining and renewing the railway to improve reliability and punctuality for all rail users. We recognise performance on the railway has been unsatisfactory, and passengers have not always received the level of service they expected. While performance has improved recently, the new Transport Secretary understands passengers need the certainty of reliable journeys, and is determined to work with industry to improve performance. We continue to monitor the performance of our franchised operators closely to press for improvements for passengers.</p> more like this
