star this property answer text <p>Government officials have met with interest groups and stakeholders regarding accessibility for visual and hearing impaired consumers, specifically for on-demand services. In December 2017 DCMS asked Ofcom to provide recommendations on making on-demand services more accessible to a wider range of consumers, including the hearing impaired. Ofcom consulted on this, and published its report in December 2018 with recommendations on the scope of new regulations for on-demand services. Government will continue to engage with interested parties as we take this matter forward.</p> more like this

Formal medal ceremonies are arranged for medal-winners who receive their Olympic medal following the disqualification of a competitor. There is absolutely no place for drug cheats in sport and it is completely right that clean athletes receive medals when tests have proven doping violations.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Improving mobile connectivity across the whole of the UK is a priority for the Government. The Ofcom licence obligations arising from the December 2014 agreement mean that the four Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) have a legally binding obligation to provide voice/SMS text coverage to at least 90% of the UK’s landmass by end-2017. Additionally Telefonica (O2) has a licence obligation to deliver indoor 4G coverage to 98% of UK premises (95% in Scotland and the other Devolved Administrations.) The Digital Economy Bill, currently going through Parliament, will give the regulator Ofcom the power to issue large fines to mobile phone companies who fail to meet their licence obligations.</p><p> </p><p>The Government's agreement with the MNOs locked in investment of £5 billion and is delivering improved coverage across the UK. Ofcom's 2016 Connected Nations Report shows that 98% of Scottish premises now have indoor voice coverage and 62% have indoor 4G data coverage from all four MNOs (up from 22% in 2015). Our proposed reforms of the Electronic Communications Code, will support further investment and improvements in connectivity across the UK and reduce not spots.</p>
