star this property answer text <p>We recognise that institutions and individuals are concerned about the impacts of EU exit on staff and student mobility. Following the extension of Article 50, the European Commission has made clear that the UK continues to participate fully in the current programme and has reiterated that ‘the future withdrawal of the United Kingdom cannot be invoked as a justification to cancel a Key Action 1 mobility started (or planned to be started) while the United Kingdom is still a Member State’. This should provide welcome reassurance to participants, providers and our partners in the EU.</p><p>Under the terms of the Withdrawal Agreement, UK entities' right to participate in EU programmes during the current Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF), such as Erasmus+, will be unaffected by the UK's withdrawal from the EU for the lifetime of projects financed by the current MFF.</p><p>In the event that the UK leaves the EU without a deal, the government will engage with the European Commission with the aim of securing the UK’s participation in Erasmus+ until the end of 2020.</p><p>The HMG guarantee will cover the payment of awards to UK applicants for all successful Erasmus+ bids submitted before the end of 2020 and it commits the government to underwriting funding for the entire lifetime of the projects. Successful bids are ones that are approved directly by the Commission or by the UK National Agency and ratified by the Commission. Attached guidance for Erasmus+ beneficiaries on how to register for the guarantee was published in April on GOV.UK at <a href="https://bit.ly/2HimZlD" target="_blank">https://bit.ly/2HimZlD</a>. Attached latest news on the possible impact of Brexit on the programme is available on the UK National Agency website at <a href="https://bit.ly/2ItnGaE" target="_blank">https://bit.ly/2ItnGaE</a> and this includes the UK Government's Frequently Asked Questions relating to the guidance.</p><p>Furthermore, the Commission’s Erasmus+ contingency Regulation establishes that students abroad on exit day will not see their mobilities disrupted, even in a no deal scenario. The Regulation applies to mobility activities starting at the latest on the date of withdrawal (31 October 2019) and which take place in the United Kingdom or involve entities or participants from the United Kingdom.</p><p>Data on number of Erasmus+ participants by participating organisations is only available for Higher Education mobility. Figures for the last 5 academic years can be found in Table 2 in the ‘Erasmus+ UK Higher Education Statistics 2017’ attached, available on the ‘Project Mobilities and Outputs’ section of the website at the following link: <a href="https://www.erasmusplus.org.uk/statistics" target="_blank">https://www.erasmusplus.org.uk/statistics</a>. Figures for the number of people from the UK participating in 2019-20 will be published by the National Agency in due course.</p><p>Data on UK participation in the Erasmus+ programme as well as participation from outside the UK is available on the European Commission’s website.

Whilst the railway needs to balance passenger and stakeholder aspirations with the practical and economic viability of running additional services, ideas can always be put forward to Transport for the North for consideration. It should be noted that, as part of the current Northern Franchise, some additional evening and Sunday services have been added to the route.</p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Department does not currently have any plans to promote the use of reformed Class 43 Mark 3 InterCity 125 sets on the Settle and Carlisle railway line and rail services. Northern’s existing fleet of 243 trains is in the process of being fully upgraded to a high standard. It is committed to improving customers’ on-board experience and has refurbished over 50% of its fleet already. The programme will see the introduction of free customer Wi-Fi, at seat power sockets and customer information media screens on all Northern’s trains. There are currently no plans to extend the Settle and Carlisle rail services into Scotland, the East Midlands or elsewhere, however ideas for these can always be put forward to Transport for the North for consideration.</p> more like this
