Data for the years 2011 to 2013 are shown in the following tables. Due to routine updating of the commodity codes by Eurostat, wood pellets were coded as ‘44013020 - Sawdust and wood waste and scrap, agglomerated in pellets’ in 2011 but then classified to the new code ‘44013100 – wood pellets’ in 2012 and 2013. For this analysis we have combined these two headings to provide a consistent series. The values below are provided in metric tonnes, each equivalent to 1,000 kg.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td colspan="4"><p>Net mass of wood pellet imports to the UK (metric tonnes)</p></td><td> </td></tr><tr><td> </td><td><p>2011</p></td><td><p>2012</p></td><td><p>2013</p></td><td> </td></tr><tr><td><p> </p></td><td><p>1,015,102</p></td><td><p>1,486,899</p></td><td><p>3,432,187</p></td><td> </td></tr><tr><td colspan="4"><p>Source: HMRC Overseas Trade Statistics</p></td><td> </td></tr><tr><td colspan="4"><p>Note: wood pellets were classified as 'HS 44013020 - Sawdust and wood waste and scrap, agglomerated in pellets' in 2011 and as 'HS 44013100 - Wood pellets' in 2012 and 2013</p></td><td> </td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>

unstar this property answer text <p>London is the tech capital of Europe. The Government has played a key part in its success. It supports Tech City UK which delivers support services and programmes to tech businesses in London and UK-wide. London and Partners promotes the London wide tech sector, working on behalf of the Mayor of London and other commercial partners, including Tech City for which it took over specific responsibility in April this year.</p><p> </p><p>Technology companies in London will benefit from a range of government funding such as the:</p><p> </p><p>• recently announced 5m funding (£2m in 2015/2016 and a provisional allocation of £3m in 2016/17) for a pilot digital skills programme to be run by the London Enterprise Panel as part of the London Growth Deal.</p><p> </p><p>• A new Digital Catapult, located in King’s Cross, with £50m over 5 years to provide tech companies with access to expertise and enable them to develop new products and services.</p><p> </p><p>• £40K, this financial year, for Tech City UK’s Future Fifty Programme. Of the 50 tech companies, 37 of them are headquartered in London.</p><p> </p><p>• £400K this financial year for Tech City UK’s Digital Business Academy - an online training programme to ensure everyone has the much needed digital skills.</p><p> </p><p>We will have the lowest corporation tax rate in the G7 from next year. Technology companies can also benefit from other tax incentives such as the Patent Box, which can give an effective 10% tax rate for qualifying net revenue arising from EU or UK registered patents, R&amp;D tax credits, the Enterprise Investment Scheme and the Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme.</p><p> </p><p>The Government launched the new computing curriculum in September 2014, to ensure a pipeline of digitally skilled individuals. £3.5m of funding has been provided to ensure teachers have the skills to teach the curriculum and there are a number of coding clubs available in London schools, to inspire young people about the career opportunities digital skills provide.</p><p> </p><p>There is also good work at a local level, for example, Camden Council has started to set up code clubs in schools, see the following link: <a href="http://www.theguardian.com/local-government-network/2013/sep/02/camden-council-pioneers-coding-in-schools" target="_blank">http://www.theguardian.com/local-government-network/2013/sep/02/camden-council-pioneers-coding-in-schools</a></p><p> </p>

Member has requested information in respect of a slightly shorter period (i.e. since 2010 and not each of the past 5 years) and has asked about fees over the prevention of release of information requested by Freedom of Information requests rather than in relation to freedom of information cases generally, the answer remains the same as that previously given.</p><p> </p> more like this
