star this property answer text <p>In 2017, the UK Government published the first progress report for the National Pollinator Strategy. It highlights positive progress with the Strategy’s 34 actions, undertaken in partnership with voluntary groups, farmers, growers and within the government estate.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>For example, in 2015, we introduced a Pollinator and Wildlife Package to our Countryside Stewardship Scheme to provide a suite of habitats on farmland. Since 2011, through this package and other actions, we have established management on approximately 130,000 hectares of land to create new wildlife-rich habitat in the wider countryside.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>We have established a dedicated UK pollinator monitoring and research partnership, and developed an indicator of trends in the status of pollinating insects. The indicator was last published on 19 July 2018. It shows that the overall status of pollinating insects has declined since 1980, but has stabilised in recent years. We are keeping this under review as an encouraging but not yet definitive sign of progress.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>We will review and refresh the Strategy’s aims by 2019 to strengthen our response based on an improved understanding of the baselines, the impact of pressures and the role of pollinators. We are determined to continue working to see positive results across the full range of the Strategy’s outcomes.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The National Bee Unit has an extensive programme of monitoring and advisory visits to beekeepers to check for the presence of notifiable pests and diseases of honey bees and provide advice on biosecurity within the hive. They carry out around 5,000 visits per year. Levels of endemic notifiable diseases (European and American foulbrood) remain at low levels. The Government has well-tested plans to tackle incursions of exotic pests, such as the Asian hornet, which have been successfully used to find and destroy nests. The number of beekeepers registered on the BeeBase system (the National Bee Unit’s biosecurity system which underpins the bee health actions of the Government’s inspectorate) has increased significantly over the last 10 years from 12 thousand to over 40 thousand today.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>In terms of wild bees, the UK’s ‘Status of Pollinating Insects’ indicator summarises trends for almost 400 pollinating insect species and was last published on the 19th July 2018. It measures how widespread each species is in each year since 1980 and shows that the overall status of pollinating insects has declined, but has stabilised in recent years. The Government is keeping this under review as an encouraging but not yet definitive sign of progress and is determined to continue working to see positive results across the full range of activities under the National Pollinator Strategy to improve the health of our bees.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The government wants every child to be in a stable, loving home that is right for them. One of the key principles of the legislation which underpins the UK’s child protection system, is that children are best looked after within their families, but that is not always possible. As a last resort, local authorities may apply to the independent courts for a decision about removing a child from his or her family – for the child’s safety.</p><p>We regularly monitor and assess the number of children that come into contact with our child protection system and recognise that the number of children in care has risen. That is why, we are working across government to ensure that local authorities and the courts have the resources they need.</p><p>The 2015 Spending Review made available more than £200 billion until 2020 for councils to deliver the local services their communities want to see, including children’s services. In addition, we are improving children’s social care through our £200 million Innovation Programme. This aims to help local authorities learn from what works in order to design services that are as efficient and effective as possible. A number of local authorities implementing these programmes have successfully reduced the number of children in their care. We are also working to set up the new What Works Centre, to build evidence to help improve outcomes for vulnerable children, including a focus on reducing the number of children in care.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government is committed to ensuring there is transparency and fairness in the leasehold market. In particular we announced measures on 21 December 2017 to limit ground rents in newly created leases to a peppercorn and require new build houses to be sold on a freehold basis. We will be consulting shortly on how we intend to implement these commitments. The Government will also be setting up a working group to consider, amongst other things, service charges to make sure they are fair and transparent. In addition we have asked the Law Commission to consider a range of options for reforming the law on enfranchisement to make it easier, quicker and cheaper for leaseholders to buy their freehold or extend their lease. The Law Commission intends to consult on the details of its proposals over the autumn.</p> more like this
