answer text <p>Blacklisting is an unacceptable practice. The Government has to date, seen no evidence of this practice recurring since the introduction of the Blacklists Regulations in 2010. However, we understand the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) is currently investigating some allegations of blacklisting.</p><p> </p><p>We will be paying close attention to the outcome of these investigations, and once they are known we will consider whether any further action needs to be taken as a result.</p><p> </p><p>Individuals who believe they have new evidence of blacklisting should provide this to the ICO so that it can decide whether there are grounds for an investigation using their powers under the Data Protection Act.</p><p> </p> more like this

answer text <p><strong> </strong></p><p> </p><p>The UK’s decision to leave the EU has no immediate effect on the right of researchers to apply or to participate in Horizon 2020 as the UK is still an EU member state. UK participants can continue to apply to the programme in the usual way. The Commission has made a public statement on its website to this effect. The future of UK access to European research and innovation funding will be determined as part of wider discussions with the EU.</p><p> </p> more like this

answer text <p>The Create Together strategy produced by the industry members of the Creative Industries Council is a strategy for building on the economic success of the UK’s creative sector. It is one which the Government supports. Government is currently reviewing specific recommendations within the strategy, including on safe harbour. We are strongly committed to working constructively with industry on these issues.</p><p>The Government agrees that it should not be possible to benefit from encouraging the posting of copyright infringing content through safe harbours, and that the rules governing who is responsible for such content should be clear.
