star this property answer text <p>This Government recognises the value of co-operatives and other mutually owned businesses. The Government’s policy is to maintain a level playing field between co-operatives and other legal forms.</p><p> </p><p>In 2014, the coalition government introduced a number of measures to support the co-operative sector, including consolidating all the existing laws, to make it easier for societies to understand and apply the legislative framework and the rules governing them. The coalition government also simplified the electronic registration process to help new societies start up.</p><p> </p><p>In February 2018 the Government brought forward a measure to bring audit requirements for small co-operatives into line with those for small companies. This measure came into force on 6 April, and will save growing societies thousands of pounds in auditors’ fees that companies of the same size do not have to pay.</p><p><strong> </strong></p> more like this

We remain confident the UK and the EU will agree a mutually advantageous deal where people right across Europe benefit from liberal aviation market access. We are working hard to secure this outcome.</p><p> </p><p>However, a responsible government should prepare for all potential outcomes, including the unlikely scenario in which no mutually satisfactory agreement can be reached. We are working with the UK Civil Aviation Authority to prepare and equip the UK to be ready for a non-negotiated exit.</p><p>There has been cross-government engagement with key stakeholders across the aerospace sector since the referendum, which has informed and will continues to inform our thinking.</p><p> </p><p>Being outside the EU will not change the UK’s approach to aviation safety. We are absolutely clear that the UK will continue to be a world leader in this field.</p> more like this

star this property answer text The government considered licence fee funding during BBC Charter Review in 2015. While no funding model meets all the criteria of an ideal system, the current model provides the BBC with a sustainable core income paid by all households that watch or receive television. This model has wider support than any alternative: 60% of Charter Review consultation responses indicated that no change was needed to the current licence fee model, and only 3% favoured full subscription funding. As a result, we have committed to maintain the licence fee funding model for the BBC for the duration of the new 11 year Charter period. The BBC is independent of government. The BBC Board is therefore responsible for the appropriate use of licence fee revenue, and it is for licence fee payers to determine whether the BBC is value for money. more like this
