star this property answer text <p>Parliament legislated to amend the appeals system in the Immigration Act 2014 so that an appeal only arises where a claim raising asylum, humanitarian protection or human rights is refused, where protection status is revoked and for deprivation of citizenship. Similar provisions are set out in the Immigration (European Economic Area) Regulations 2016. Given the passage of time, many of those refused on the basis of alleged cheating in English language tests will now have arguable human rights claims. Even if refused, these will normally generate an in-country right of appeal.</p><p>The Home Secretary is considering the findings of the National Audit Office report in response to cheating in English language tests. He will then make a statement to Parliament.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government values the important work that physiotherapists do for the NHS. The current Tier 2 system, through which physiotherapists can be recruited, ensures that experienced workers are paid the higher of either a minimum of £30,000 or the ‘going rate’ for this occupation, the latter of which is based on data provided by the Office for National Statistics. This system is designed to ensure that migrants are paid a fair wage and that the resident workforce is not undercut.</p><p><br>However, we have been clear that decisions on the future immigration system should be based on clear evidence. That is why, on 24 June 2019, the Government asked the Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) to consider the issue of minimum salary thresholds in more detail. As part of this new commission, we have asked the MAC to look at a number of issues including the approach to calculating salary thresholds, the levels at which they should be set, the case for greater regional variation and the impact of exemptions from minimum salary thresholds. This report is due by January 2020.</p>

star this property answer text <p>It is illegal to sell a knife to anyone under 18 in England and Wales and the Government is tackling the illegal sale to under-18s on a number of fronts. Firstly, as part of the Serious Violence Strategy, we are enabling Trading Standards to take forward prosecutions where retailers fail test purchase operations involving sales to under-18s through a specific prosecution fund. In the North West of England, Liverpool and Preston are two local authorities receiving this funding. In 2018/19, 1019 face to face test purchases had been attempted by the local authorities funded across England and Wales, with 121 sellers (around 13 per cent) failing the test and selling to a person under 18. In the same period, 128 online test purchases had been attempted, with 32% (41) failing and selling to a person under 18.</p><p>The Government also continues to encourage police forces to undertake a series of co-ordinated national weeks of action to tackle knife crime under Operation Sceptre. The operation includes targeted stop and searches, weapon sweeps of hotspot areas, test purchases of knives from retailers, and educational events. The latest phase of the operation took place from 11-18 March, and overall 689 test purchase operations were carried out in retail premises. Of these, there were 559 passes. 130 (around 19%) resulted in the retail outlet failing the test purchase.</p><p>To go further in preventing the sale of knives to under-18s, the Offensive Weapons Act 2019 includes a provision that will stop knives from being sent to residential addresses after they are bought online, unless the seller has arrangements in place with the delivery company to ensure that the product would not be delivered into the hands of a person under 18.</p><p>The Government has also agreed a set of commitments with major retailers to prevent the underage sales of knives more generally in their stores and online. The agreement also covers staff training and displays and packaging. Tesco, eBay UK, Lidl UK, Amazon UK, Wilko, Argos, Asda, Poundland, Morrisons, Sainsbury’s, John Lewis and Waitrose have all signed up to the principles. They have since been joined by Boots, the Co-op, B&amp;Q, Aldi, TKMaxx and Debenhams. We are working with retailers to strengthen the agreement in relation to displays and that work is continuing. Following on from this, Asda has stopped selling single knives in its stores from the end of April, a move supported by the Government.</p>

Of these, 284 having been activated to date. The new 4G coverage these sites deliver, in addition to the upgrading of existing masts, will be available to EE’s commercial customers in addition to the emergency services wherever possible. In Angus, EE has deployed and activated one new site.</p><p>In addition to the new sites being provided by EE, the ESN programme is responsible for providing approximately 300 sites in the most remote and rural areas of Great Britain as part of the Extended Area Service (EAS) project</p><p>Other Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) can share all new sites being built by EE through a clear and well-understood industry process, in line with our State Aid requirements. It is a matter for those mobile network operators if they wish to share this infrastructure.</p><p>For the EAS sites all MNOs can apply to site share if the necessary planning permissions regarding a mast capable of hosting multiple operators are granted by the local planning authority. 98% of structures planned are designed to accommodate additional MNOs.</p><p>Twelve of these EAS sites are planned in Angus and these are composed of nine greenfield sites and three sites shared with the existing Airwave service. Construction has completed on one site.</p><p>Across the whole of Scotland 123 EAS sites are planned, including 76 greenfield sites, 30 sites shared with the existing Airwave service, and 17 sites shared with other mobile network operators. Of these 18 shared sites, 11 are proposed as shared sites with the Scottish Government 4G infill programme.</p><p>Of the 76 greenfield sites across Scotland, 10 have now completed construction, and construction is underway on a further 14 sites. The remainder are at various different stages of the necessary planning and legal processes before construction can begin</p><p>Currently there is one EAS site active in Scotland which is located in Lockerbie.</p>
