star this property answer text <p>There are a number of EU directives covering a wide range of pollution issues. This answer refers to the Industrial Emissions Directive (2010/75/EU), which was transposed into law in England and Wales in February 2013. The Directive requires operators in a range of industrial sectors to comply with certain standards to ensure the reduction of emissions from their activities.</p><p>Prior to transposition of the Directive, our impact assessment estimated that the annual regulatory and compliance costs for the main affected sectors would be £105m for operators of large combustion plants and £0 - £15m for a range of other installations in the waste treatment and wood treatment sectors.</p><p>The impact assessment estimated that the annual human health benefits due to a reduction in emissions of nitrogen dioxide, sulphur dioxide and particulate matter from large combustion plants alone would be £188m. Other benefits for human health and the environment were also expected to arise from other pollutants that could not be monetised.</p>

star this property answer text <p>We have improved air quality significantly over recent decades and the UK currently meets the EU limit values for almost all pollutants. We have consulted on our draft revised air quality plans for nitrogen dioxide (NO<sub>2</sub>), which set out a range of local, national and international actions to lower levels of harmful emissions and are currently analysing all of the responses received. By the end of the year we will submit the finalised plans to the European Commission outlining how the UK will meet the EU limit values for NO<sub>2</sub> including those of 40 micrograms of NO<sub>2</sub> per cubic metre in the shortest possible time.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Health services in public prisons in England, including mental health treatment, are commissioned and reviewed by NHS England. In Wales, health is devolved to the Welsh Government. However, as signatories to the National Partnership Agreement for Prison Healthcare 2018-2021, the Department works closely with health partners to support the delivery of healthcare by ensuring prisoners are able to access these services.</p><p> </p><p>That is why we are investing in our workforce. We have met our target to recruit an additional 2,500 prison officers several months ahead of schedule, helping to ensure that prisoners can be supported to attend scheduled healthcare appointments and receive weekly, one-to-one support from a named prison officer. These officers will coach, signpost and encourage individuals in order that they feel settled and safe and part of this may include signposting individuals to mental health treatment in prison.</p><p> </p><p>Beyond staff support, HMPPS invests in various support services for prisoners which can help promote mental health treatment. For example, HMPPS recently refreshed its partnership with the Samaritans to continue funding the Listeners scheme, which trains selected prisoners to provide emotional support to peers.</p><p> </p><p>The Department recognises the impact that the prison environment can have on prisoner health and wellbeing, particularly for prisoners with a mental health diagnosis. This is why we are focussing on getting the basics right through our prison estate transformation programme, delivering decent prisons that improve opportunities for rehabilitation and create safe and secure environments for staff and offenders.</p>

star this property answer text <p>DFID recognises that girls and women may be particularly disadvantaged when adequate water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) facilities are not available. That is why we promote through our policies and programmes a holistic approach which integrates WASH with other development services such as education and health. For example, our Girls’ Education Challenge programme includes activities to improve access to water and sanitation. As part of our upcoming renewed Strategic Vision for Gender Equality, we will intensify action to promote gender equality in water and sanitation programmes. This will help to ensure that girls’ and women’s rights to access water, sanitation and hygiene facilities are realised and that they benefit from security and privacy, for example to meet their menstrual hygiene needs.</p> more like this
