star this property answer text <p>The Government is committed to supporting families. To achieve this, in 2014 we introduced the Family Test, which aims to ensure that impacts on family relationships and functioning are recognised early on during the process of policy development and help inform the policy decisions made by Minsters. There is no requirement for departments to publish the results of assessments made under the Family Test.</p><p> </p><p>The Family Test is an integral part of the policy making process and is applied in a proportionate way in the development of all new policy in line with the Family Test guidance.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Planning guidelines since 2008 have been clear that development in areas at risk of flooding should be avoided unless it is made safe, does not increase flood risk elsewhere and is appropriately flood resilient and resistant. This was reinforced in the national planning policy framework (NPPF) and strengthened in the revised NPPF published on 24 July.</p><p> </p><p>The government’s funding policy published in May 2011 states that new properties built after 1 January 2012, or existing buildings converted into housing after that date, should not be counted when risk management authorities are making the case for government funding support to build or improve flood defences.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>It is important that farmers and growers are treated fairly by other operators in the supply chain. The Groceries Code Adjudicator plays an important role in making sure that businesses who supply directly to large supermarkets are treated lawfully and fairly.</p><p> </p><p>Many farmers and producers do not supply supermarkets directly, and earlier this year the Government announced a package of measures to help farmers by improving transparency and integrity in the supply chain. These measures included:</p><p> </p><ul><li>A £10 million collaboration fund to support farmers to come together and strengthen their position in the supply chain. This fund will be launched later this year.</li><li>A commitment to explore with industry how the collection and dissemination of market data can be improved in the longer-term to drive greater supply chain transparency.</li><li>Launching consultations on mandatory written contracts in the dairy sector and on carcase classification for sheep. The latter is underway and closes on 23<sup>rd</sup> August.</li></ul><p> </p><p>We are also acting to tackle the late payment culture across all sectors. The Small Business Commissioner was appointed in October 2017, and earlier this year the Chancellor announced a call for evidence on how to eliminate unfair payment practices to small businesses, which will seek views on how the Government can go further to deliver a fair payment culture.</p>

star this property answer text <p>In 2013, the UK and Welsh Governments jointly commissioned an independent study entitled ‘<em>Sky lanterns and helium balloons: an assessment of impacts on livestock and the environment’ </em>to identify and assess their impacts and risks primarily to livestock and the environment, but also their fire risk and the damage they do to crops. The report concluded that while the impact on livestock and the environment is low, there is however a potential fire safety risk. There is a responsibility on individuals to recognise the impact these products can have, particularly on very dry land and in periods of very hot weather such as we have experienced in recent weeks.</p><p> </p> more like this

The Government regularly assesses the UK’s food security through its own channels, including through the UK Food Assessment.</p><p> </p><p>The UK Food Assessment is a comprehensive analysis of all aspects of food security. It draws on a wide range of indicators which are updated with varying frequency and which we monitor on an ongoing basis. We have commenced a review of the overall assessment which will be published in 2019<strong>.</strong></p><p> </p><p>The UK has a high degree of food security with access to a diverse range of sources of supply, including domestic production. This will continue to be the case after we leave the EU. Food supply is highly resilient with diversity and flexibility throughout the supply chains, and industry can respond quickly to ensure ongoing supply.</p><p>Leaving the EU provides us with a major opportunity to set up new frameworks for supporting our farmers to grow more, sell more and export more great British food. We will work with all those who have an interest in the future of food and farming as we develop a new approach that works for our industry.</p>
