star this property answer text <p>The welfare of animals kept in zoos in England is covered by the Animal Welfare Act 2006 and the Zoo Licensing Act 1981. The 2006 Act allows action to be taken where there is evidence of cruelty to an animal or a failure to provide for its welfare. The 2006 Act applies to zoo animals. Further to these general provisions, the welfare of animals in zoos in Great Britain is specifically covered by the 1981 Act.</p><p> </p><p>Under the 1981 Act zoos must comply with comprehensive animal health, welfare and husbandry standards, and be subject to an annual local authority inspection. Zoos have to be inspected at least every year by a local authority, with an inspection every two to three years using inspectors drawn from a list of qualified zoo inspectors kept by Defra. Defra also maintains the Secretary of State's Standards of Modern Zoo Practice. These are detailed standards for zoo management with which zoos are expected to comply. The standards are kept under review by Defra’s Zoos Expert Committee (ZEC) which includes leading animal welfare experts.</p><p> </p><p>The ZEC’s role is to provide independent, technical advice to UK Governments on zoo matters. ZEC’s remit includes keeping the operation and implementation of the zoo licensing system in the UK under review, and to advise, or make recommendations to, Defra or devolved governments, in relation to any legislative or administrative changes that may be necessary. Following the recent case in Cumbria, Lord Gardiner has tasked the ZEC with considering whether any further steps need to be taken to ensure animal welfare in zoos.</p>

star this property answer text <p>​It is important that credible allegations of violations of international humanitarian law (IHL) are investigated and the Saudi-led Coalition has committed to doing this. The UK has not been directly involved in investigations undertaken by the Joint Incident Assessment Team, but has supported its development and delivered two training sessions in Saudi Arabia on the process for investigating alleged IHL violations. The UK continues to believe that the Coalition has the best insight into its own military procedures and will be able to conduct the most thorough and conclusive investigations. The Coalition has publicly stated that any lessons learned will be acted upon.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>It can be important to control bracken in order to protect agricultural land and conservation areas and to tackle ticks, which can carry diseases including Lyme disease. Mechanical methods such as cutting and crushing can be effective in some circumstances. Where there is a need to avoid harming other plants or the terrain does not allow access to cutting equipment, a selective herbicide, such as asulam, may be the safest and most effective method of managing bracken.</p><p> </p><p>Pesticides are only authorised if the risks to people and to the environment are considered acceptable. The use of asulam to control bracken is not routinely permitted. The case for a short-term, limited and controlled authorisation is considered each year on the basis of scientific advice from the UK Expert Committee on Pesticides. This year, asulam has been authorised for use from July to October 2017. Individual operators wishing apply asulam from the air are required to meet additional requirements under permitting arrangements administered by the Health and Safety Executive.</p>

It has always been the case that where a fire risk assessment required for any new building recommends sprinklers are installed to keep children safe, they must be fitted.</p><p>The Department holds information on PSBP schools as these are managed centrally by the ESFA. Of the 260 schools in phase one of the PSBP, 7<ins class="ministerial">4</ins><del class="ministerial">5</del> schools include sprinkler systems. As schools under phase two of the PSBP are still in the early design stage, it is not yet clear which may require sprinklers at this time.</p><p><ins class="ministerial">The number of schools in phase one with sprinklers installed had previously been reported as 75. However, further analysis of the data has confirmed that a joint project between two primary schools in Wiltshire had inadvertently been counted as two schools, when they should only have been counted once. Therefore, we can confirm that the correct number of schools fitted with sprinklers, under phase one of PSBP, is 74.</ins></p><p> </p><p>Until recently, schools developed under the Free Schools programme were managed by the individual Free School proposer groups, via their appointed building contractors. Due to this, the Department does not hold information on the number of Free School buildings with and without sprinklers installed.</p><p>All schools must have robust safety plans to follow in the event of a fire and have very strong safety features in case a fire breaks out. This includes the fact that they are not occupied overnight and are generally low rise with multiple exit routes.</p>
