answer text <p>The Government has already introduced further measures to tackle drink drivers. Since 2015, repeat drink drivers must medically prove they are not alcohol dependent before getting their licence back, and the right to blood testing was removed for drivers who narrowly fail breathalyser tests. A £350,000 competition announced in June to develop a new mobile breathalyser for the police has also been completed and winning entries are currently undergoing testing.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The Department and the Maritime and Coastguard Agency, played an active role in the development of the Guidelines for the use of scrubbing technology at both European and international level. Ships’ installed scrubbers must be approved in accordance with the Guidelines before operating in UK waters.</p><p> </p><p>Along with other European States, we recognise that more ship owners are installing these systems in order to comply with the 0.5% sulphur cap, and that large numbers of ships using scrubbers in enclosed waters might have an impact on local water quality. This is why we have asked for more evidence from ship owners and industry associations about the content of wash water, and there are a number of ongoing studies being undertaken by the industry on the issue. At this stage, we are not aware of any significant issues which have been found, but we will seek further amendments to the IMO Guidelines if it becomes clear that additional controls are needed.</p><p> </p> more like this

answer text <p>Non-Executive Directors are paid a fee rather than a salary and this information, together with the salaries of Executive Directors, is disclosed in the Annual Report and Accounts available at <a href="https://www.hs2.org.uk/documents/collections/hs2-ltd-corporate-reports/" target="_blank">https://www.hs2.org.uk/documents/collections/hs2-ltd-corporate-reports/</a>. Non-Executive Board members are required to work an average of two days per calendar month as per their Terms and Conditions of Appointment and receive a fee of £950 per day. Additional days worked are remunerated at the same daily rate upon presentation of days worked. Therefore we do not record hours. The Non-Executive Chairman receives an annual rate of £200,000 on the expectation of an average time commitment of 2.5 days per week.</p> more like this
