The department does not have oversight of individual decisions made in local authority areas but have asked local authorities to consider whether any additional action is necessary in order to fulfil their safeguarding responsibilities.</p> more like this

If the arbitration panel was empowered to interpret EU law and bind the EU and its Member States to this interpretation, it would be considered unlawful by the CJEU and prevent the EU from being able to sign up to such a provision.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government is committed to supporting all entrepreneurs to start and grow a business, and as part of our Industrial Strategy, we have taken steps to encourage women to start a business. There are now 1.1 million female-led small and medium-sized businesses in the UK, which accounts for 19% of SMEs in the UK, 5% higher than in 2010.</p><p> </p><p>There are 38 Growth Hubs across England which provide localised information, guidance, expertise and finance for businesses at any stage of their growth. We know that 45% of callers to the Business Support Helpline in 2017/18 were women.</p><p> </p><p>The Government-backed British Business Bank provides Start-Up Loans for individuals wishing to start a business and women account for 39% of recipients. The Scheme started in 2012 and as at the end of September 2018, the Start Up Loans programme had lent £450m to more than 59,000 entrepreneurs. The Bank is also conducting a review into the specific barriers female-led businesses face in accessing Venture Capital.</p><p> </p><p>I would also like to point out that on 21 September 2018, the Treasury launched a review into the barriers women face getting into business. This is led by Alison Rose, Chief Executive of RBS Commercial and Private Banking. This review will bolster our work to make it easier for them to access the support they need to get their ideas off the ground and grow their businesses.</p>

star this property answer text <p>All the significant recommendations from Lord Ashcroft’s Veterans’ Transition Review have been implemented and are now routine business for the Ministry of Defence (MOD). In May 2018, Lord Ashcroft stepped down as the Prime Minister’s Special Representative on Veterans’ Transition. In his letter to the Prime Minister, he said that while work remains to be done, “<em>I am pleased with the many practical changes that have been brought about as a result of the Transition Review, and that the whole issue of veterans’ transition now has a higher profile in government and beyond</em>.” The full text of Lord Ashcroft’s letter to the Prime Minister, along with a copy of the Review, follow-up reports and associated documents can be found at the following address:</p><p><strong>http://www.veteranstransition.co.uk/</strong></p><p> </p><p>This Government is not complacent, and we are working to further support our military veterans. In November 2018 the UK, Scottish and Welsh Governments published an evidence-based ‘<em>Strategy for our veterans</em>’ which will work to ensure veterans’ issues are considered, coordinated and delivered across the UK <strong>(https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/strategy-for-our-veterans).</strong> This builds on existing progress, including in health issues where specific care pathways for veterans have been developed around mental health and prosthetic aftercare.</p><p> </p><p>As part of the Strategy we are also this year introducing a holistic transition policy. Transition support currently provided by the MOD largely focuses on employment support, delivered by the Career Transition Partnership (CTP), which supports Service leavers in their transition from military to civilian life through a range of career and employment support services including skills development workshops, seminars, resettlement training advice, vocational training courses, career consultancy, one-to-one guidance and job finding support.  However, transition is far wider than finding employment, and relates to the significant life changing processes which affect both the Service person and their immediate family through the entire time they are within or connected to the Armed Forces, through to discharge and beyond, which need to be appropriately addressed to ensure successful transition into civilian life.  This will include transition to civilian health care.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>
