star this property answer text <p>Despite UK opposition, asulam was withdrawn from the market at the end of 2012 following an EU review. Asulam is a valuable resource for land managers needing to control bracken. Therefore, in line with EU rules, limited and controlled use has been allowed to continue in the UK where alternative control measures would not be effective.</p><p>A new application for EU approval has been submitted and is currently being examined by the Health and Safety Executive. Their assessment will be completed later this year and will be peer reviewed by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), which will issue its own conclusions. The European Commission will then decide whether to approve asulam for use. If approval is granted, Member States can consider applications to authorise products containing asulam.</p><p>The Government believes that decisions on the approval and authorisation of pesticides should be taken on the basis of a scientific assessment of risk. If the assessment shows that asulam can be used without unacceptable risk, this should be permitted.</p><p> </p>

The new and expanded Troubled Families Programme was rolled out nationally in April 2015 and will reach up to a further 400,000 families with multiple problems. Details of how many troubled families are engaged in the new programme, in its first year of implementation, will be published in due course.</p><p> </p><p>Research estimates that the cost to the public purse of the most troubled 120,000 families before engagement with the Troubled Families Programme was £9 billion in total; an average of £75,000 per family (DCLG: ‘The Fiscal Case for Working with Troubled Families’ (2013)). £8 billion of this spend was purely reacting to their problems.
