unstar this property answer text We are on track to open the non-household retail market for water and sewerage services in April 2017. All partners in the Open Water programme (the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, Ofwat and Market Operator Services Limited), are strongly committed to meeting this date. A clear timetable of the activities, which will need to be completed before the market can open, is published on Ofwat’s website and updated each month. Market Operator Services Limited is working closely with all relevant companies to ensure that they will be ready for market opening in April 2017. Incumbent water companies who want to compete in the new national retail market will need to establish a separate legal entity and apply for a Water and Sewerage Supply Licence, although they are not under any obligation to do so. Ofwat sought views on the appropriate conditions for licensees operating in the new retail market through its consultation on new Water and Sewerage Supply Licences in June 2015. It will be able to impose financial penalties on licensees who do not comply with these conditions.

We are aiming for the third tranche of Marine Conservation Zones to be comprehensive and complete our contribution to the ecologically coherent network of Marine Protected Areas in the North East Atlantic. This network plays an important part in helping stem the decline of marine habitats and species and in aiding their recovery. The Government has also committed to doubling the size of protected ocean around the UK Overseas Territories to four million square kilometres. This commitment included the immediate formal designation of Marine Protected Areas around the Pitcairn Islands and St Helena which will help protect the Territories’ important endemic marine species. more like this

unstar this property answer text New Zealand is able to export up to 288,254 tonnes of sheepmeat duty free to the EU under a tariff rate quota. The rules governing the operation of the quota laid down in Commission Regulation (EU) No 1354/2011 express the quota in terms of carcase weight equivalent. Operators in New Zealand are able to use the quota to export lamb joints and cuts, as well as carcasses, and the Regulation lays down a series of coefficients to convert boneless and bone-in cuts into a carcase weight equivalent. Veterinary checks on products of animal origin are carried out by Port Health Authorities at Border Inspection Posts. Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs’ (HMRC) customs declaration processes for non-EU imports ensure that all products of animal origin have been issued with a valid Common Veterinary Entry Document (CVED) before the consignment is cleared by customs in the UK. more like this
