answer text <p>The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) used media, online channels, direct mail and advertising to inform people about the abolition of the paper counterpart to the driving licence. The DVLA also engaged with trade organisations, vehicle hire companies and wrote directly to 640,000 professional bus and lorry drivers. Information has been sent to around a million drivers each month since February with driving licence renewal reminders. Awareness of the change amongst the public is now over 84%.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The DVLA has a dedicated local rate telephone service in place for drivers who do not have access to the online service. This service is available Monday to Friday from 8am to 7pm and Saturday from 8am to 2pm. Since the paper counterpart was abolished in June 2015, more than 154,000 drivers have used the telephone service. During the same period the online service has been used 1.4m times.</p><p> </p> more like this

answer text <p>The Blue Badge Scheme is primarily designed to help those who are unable to walk, or who have very considerable difficulty walking, whether they are drivers or passengers. We have no plans to extend the scheme to carers or partners. Carers should not use a badge if the badge holder is not travelling with them, so do not need a badge in their own right. The scheme already permits badges to be issued on a case by case basis to people with <em>any permanent disability</em> that affects their walking to the necessary degree. With around 2.6 million badges already on issue, it is important that we ensure the Scheme remains sustainable and protects preferential parking facilities for those with the greatest need.</p><p> </p> more like this

answer text <p>Air quality emission levels by mode are only compiled at a national level by the National Atmospheric Emissions Inventory. Its estimates are updated annually. Emissions from road vehicles are by far the greatest source of nitrous dioxide levels in Greater London.</p><br /><p>The main impact of aviation on ground local air quality relates to emissions during the landing and take-off phase up to about 3000 feet. Above this height the oxides of nitrogen and particulate matter which can cause respiratory problems get dispersed.</p><br /> more like this

answer text <p>Along with Gatwick and Stansted, the Government sets night flight restrictions at Heathrow, using its powers under s.78 of the Civil Aviation Act 1982.</p><br /><p>These restrictions limit the number of flights between the hours of 23.30 and 06.00 that can take place during a particular season - there are two seasons per annum, winter and summer, which coincide with the use of Greenwich Mean Time and British Summer Time. Heathrow is limited to 5,800 flights a year during these hours, which translates in to an average of 16 flights per night. Due to a voluntary agreement which prevents scheduled movements before 04.30, most of these flights are from aircraft arriving between the hours of 04.30 and 06.00. It should be noted that these restrictions do not preclude additional aircraft from operating at Heathrow during the night period in the case of emergencies or severe disruption.</p><br /><p>As well as limiting the number of movements allowed within an airline season, these restrictions place requirements on the aircraft that can operate during the night period, and place seasonal limits on the amount of noise energy that can be emitted at Heathrow. Aircraft are certified by the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) according to the noise they produce and the higher the band an aircraft is certified as the higher quota amount it uses with each movement. The Government has also prohibited the noisiest types of aircraft from using the airport during the night. QC/4 aircraft are not allowed to be scheduled during the night quota period (2330 to 0600), and the highest rated QC/8 and QC/16 aircraft are prevented from operating at all during the entire night period (2300 to 0700).</p><br /><p>The Government will begin consulting next year on a new nights flight regime which will take effect from October 2017.</p>

answer text <p>The Government’s overall policy on aviation noise, as stated in the 2013 Aviation Policy Framework (APF), is ‘to limit and, where possible, reduce the number of people in the UK significantly affected by aircraft noise’. To achieve this, the Government believes in most cases it will be preferable to concentrate aircraft over as few routes as possible. The APF does however go on to say that ‘where there is intensive use of certain routes, and following engagement with local communities, it may be appropriate to explore options for respite which share noise between communities on an equitable basis, provided this does not lead to significant numbers of people newly affected by noise.’</p> more like this
