star this property answer text <p><strong><em> </em></strong></p><p>Cabinet Office is working with the Home Office and the police to explore the types of emergency where a national mobile alerting system can add value, beyond the mobile alerting schemes already in place in the UK. In order to inform any technical solution, these emergency scenarios will be explored in depth to establish where and when in the evolution of an incident a mobile alerting scheme offers the best opportunity to reduce harm to citizens.</p><p>Once we have fully assessed the need for an alerting scheme further work would be undertaken including exploring how situational awareness might be obtained, thresholds for activation and how the content of alert messages stands the best chance of eliciting helpful behaviours from the recipients. This is not without complexity since in terrorist-related incidents the protagonists will also receive the same message.</p><p> </p><p>Additionally, a scheme used for major incidents stands the chance of being used infrequently. To ensure effectiveness, there will be a need for a carefully managed media campaigns.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government maintained the continuity of key public services after Carillion announced its decision to initiate insolvency proceedings in January 2018. The Official Receiver was appointed by the court as liquidator, along with PwC as Special Managers.</p><p>The Government took immediate action to minimise the impact on employees and employers by providing reassurance that those working on public sector contracts would continue to be paid and providing the necessary funding required to maintain public services while Carillion’s public sector contracts were transferred to alternative providers.</p><p>In future we will require, all providers of critical services to provide sufficient management information, for example, corporate structure, intra-group trading arrangements and dependencies (including details of shared services), key subcontractor and workforce information.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The UK is determined to make good on commitments to support companies to implement zero-deforestation supply chains, including in respect of palm oil. Through the Amsterdam Declarations and the Tropical Forest Alliance 2020, we are working with businesses and other governments to strengthen governance, promote market-based solutions and put in place incentives, policies and actions that support sustainable production of palm oil alongside forest protection. While we are not proposing to bring forward a ban, we recognise that more remains to be done and will continue to explore opportunities to improve the sustainability of palm oil production.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Article 3 of the Withdrawal Agreement published on 26 November clearly states that Gibraltar is covered to the extent that Union Law applied to it before. Article 184, which records the UK and the EU’s commitment to negotiate in good faith and conclude agreements envisaged by the Political Declaration on their future relationship within a certain time frame, imposes no obligations regarding the territorial scope of future agreements. This is the EU and the UK’s shared interpretation. The government has also been clear that the UK will negotiate future agreements on behalf of all territories for whose external relations it is responsible.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Article 9(a)(b) of the draft Withdrawal Agreement provides a definition of ‘frontier workers.’ “Frontier workers” are persons who pursue an economic activity in accordance with the provisions set out in Article 45 or 49 TFEU (Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union) in one or more States in which they do not reside.</p><p>Economic activity is activity provided for remuneration. For the purposes of Article 9, economic activity must be in accordance with the provisions set out in Articles 45 or 49 TFEU.</p><p>To be exercising an economic activity as a worker in accordance with Article 45 TFEU a person must be a ‘genuine and effective’ worker and the work must not be on such a small scale so as to be ‘purely marginal or ancillary’</p><p>Article 49 TFEU provides for the freedom of establishment. A person is established in a particular state if they are participating ‘on a stable and continuous basis’ in the economic life of that State. If a person is providing temporary services they will not fall within the definition in Article 9(a)(b).</p><p> </p>
