star this property answer text <p>The following table provides the total number of referrals received for NHS Continuing Healthcare (CHC) for both Standard and Fast Track NHS CHC, for the years 2016/17 to 2018/19.</p><table><tbody><tr><td colspan="3"><p>Number of Referrals Received</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Period</p></td><td><p>Standard NHS CHC</p></td><td><p>Fast Track</p></td><td><p>Total NHS CHC</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2016/17</p></td><td><p>76,945</p></td><td><p>88,420</p></td><td><p>165,365</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2017/18</p></td><td><p>75,322</p></td><td><p>94,175</p></td><td><p>169,497</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2018/19</p></td><td><p>73,475</p></td><td><p>97,273</p></td><td><p>170,748</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p>NHS England collects and publishes data regarding the number of referrals completed, and of those, how many were assessed as eligible (as a percentage). A table showing these figures is attached due to the size of the data. The percentage of referrals agreed as eligible is based on the number of referrals ‘completed’ (rather than ‘referrals received’). Pre 2017/18 data did not use this counting methodology and therefore is not comparable. 2016/17 figures have therefore not been included.</p><p>The NHS CHC appeals process consists of clinical commissioning group local resolution and NHS England Independent Review. It is not possible to provide data on cases found eligible at local review or Independent Review as a percentage of applications initially assessed as not eligible.</p><p>We do not hold information on the percentage of NHS CHC referrals which were assessed as eligible within the requested time periods. NHS England does, however, hold information on the percentage of referrals completed within 28 days, and the latest annual information on this is included in the following table. This relates to Standard NHS CHC and not Fast Track NHS CHC.</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td colspan="3"><p>% referrals within 28 days</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Period</p></td><td colspan="3"><p>Standard NHS CHC</p></td></tr><tr><td><p> </p></td><td><p>Referrals completed</p></td><td><p>Referrals completed in 28 days</p></td><td><p>% completed in 28 days</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2018/19</p></td><td><p>76,803</p></td><td><p>53,504</p></td><td><p>70%</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>Fisheries compliance policy is a devolved competence for the Scottish Government. I have therefore not raised the matter of international fishing fleets' access to waters around Rockall with my Irish counterpart. Foreign and Commonwealth Office officials, working closely with other Government departments, including the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, remain in close contact with the Irish and Scottish Governments about this issue.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Defra is working with the Environment Agency (EA), academics and the UK water industry to understand the scale of the microplastic pollution problem and to establish detection methods to identify, characterise and quantify the types of microplastics entering our rivers. Although there has been substantive research reporting the presence and impacts of microplastics in the marine environment, little is known about their sources, release and impact on freshwaters and their ultimate transport to the marine environment. Defra has commissioned evidence reviews to further understand these issues and will use the outcomes from these and other research to develop policy options/measures/interventions for removing plastic pollution from rivers.</p><p> </p><p>There are currently no consistent sampling, collection or assessment methodologies for measuring micro-plastics in various environmental media (sediments, water column or biota), which means that routine monitoring is not practicable. Defra is also working with the EA, academics and water companies to develop methodologies to enable future monitoring of micro-plastics in wastewater, sludge and the water environment.</p><p> </p><p>The EA takes steps to stop pollution causing harm where they can clearly attribute the source of the substance, as without this information it is not possible for them to take action. One of the sources of plastic pollution comes from small beads used in industrial processes and EA are working proactively to reduce the release of these small plastics pellets from the industries they regulate.</p><p> </p><p>Plastic waste can also provide a source of micro-sized plastics once in the environment. To address this, the Government has set a target to eliminate all avoidable plastic waste within the lifetime of the 25 Year Environment Plan (by 2042) and set aside £20 million for research and development managed through the Plastics Innovation Fund in March 2018. A further £10 million was committed in the 2018 Autumn Budget for continued/additional plastics research and development along with £10 million to pioneer innovative approaches to boosting recycling and reducing litter.</p><p> </p>
