star this property answer text <p>The Government is committed to supporting people to take part in sport and physical activity regardless of their background or ability. Over the 2017-2021 period, Sport England is investing over £1 billion to support people to get physically active in whatever way best suits them. Since 2004 Sport England has invested over £10 million into projects where American football has been a beneficiary, on its own or as part of a multi-sport project. <strong> </strong></p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>While a decision on establishing a franchise in the UK is a matter for the National Football League, the Government is very supportive of their ambition to do so. The 2018 London games were another great success, with average attendances of 85,000 demonstrating the strong appetite for American football in the UK. We are delighted at the NFL’s announcement of four London games in 2019, at Wembley and Tottenham Hotspur’s new stadium.</p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Ofcom’s annual diversity monitoring report is a key tool in measuring how much progress the industry is making in increasing diversity in the sector. The report, which is attached, can be found here: https://www.ofcom.org.uk/__data/assets/pdf_file/0021/121683/diversity-in-TV-2018-report.PDF</p><p> </p><p>Now in its second year, the report makes clear that broadcasters still have much work to do to make their workforces more representative and reduce data gaps so a more accurate picture can be built. The government supports Ofcom’s work and expects broadcasters to voluntarily publish data on all diversity characteristics, not just the ones they are obliged to by law, to ensure that Ofcom is able to produce the most comprehensive reports possible.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>We do not hold specific statistics for Central London, but the thinkbroadband website states that in London 97% of both residential and business premises have access to a superfast service.</p><p> </p><p>DCMS has made superfast broadband available to more than 95% of the country through its Superfast programme, and at least a further 2% is likely to be achieved. Of which, 340,000 premises (over 1% of premises) are contracted to be delivered by March 2019.</p><p> </p><p>However where the government can intervene in the marketplace is determined by State Aid rules which are designed to avoid distortions in functioning markets. This means that in the majority of urban areas – including Central London – where there is competition between suppliers, the government is unable to invest in broadband. These commercial areas were identified during the planning phases of superfast broadband projects. The reason for this approach was to avoid investing scarce public funds in an area that were going to get superfast connections through commercial arrangements and/or to avoid public investment distorting the normal functioning of a competitive broadband market.</p><p> </p><p> </p>
