star this property answer text <p>I hold regular discussions with Cabinet colleagues and the Welsh Government. Both Government and independent research has identified that zero hours contracts are an important part of a flexible, modern labour market. However, the Government shares the concerns regarding job security which is why the Prime Minister asked Matthew Taylor to carry out an independent review of employment practices. The review was published on 11th July and we have committed to respond fully in due course.</p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>I have had regular discussions with my ministerial colleagues, Hitachi, Horizon Nuclear Power and the Japanese Government regarding the proposed Wylfa Newydd power plant, as well as visiting senior executives of Hitachi in Tokyo in August 2017. I recently met with the Japanese Prime Minister and representatives of Hitachi at Downing Street last week. We fully recognise that Hitachi’s decision will be a disappointment to people in Anglesey and North Wales, especially given the efforts of many stakeholders to support this project. The UK Government continues to discuss options for Hitachi and others to take the project forward.</p><p> </p> more like this

We will continue to work with Hitachi to decide what the next steps will be for the project and the site.

It also allows hon and Rt hon Members to receive their answers instantly once uploaded, and on the electronic platform of their choosing.</p><p>One of the benefits of the new system is the possibility for the reporting of the timeliness of answers to Parliamentary Questions to be delivered with greater consistency and accuracy across all answering bodies.</p><p>It will be for the Procedure Committee to evaluate the effectiveness of the new system in improving performance when it assesses the evidence following the end of the session.</p><p> </p>
