star this property answer text <p>As part of the Litter Strategy for England that was published in April this year, we have established a working group to look at different voluntary and economic incentives to improve the recycling and reuse of packaging, and to reduce the incidence of commonly littered items. As well as voluntary models, the scope of the working group includes consideration of regulatory options and measures to target particular types of item or product, including the full cost impacts and benefits of different types of deposit and reward and return schemes for drink containers including plastic bottles. This working group will be consulting widely in developing its evidence base and analysis.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The British Insurance Broker Association (BIBA) insurance product, launched in December 2016, provides flood insurance for many small businesses that have struggled to access it to-date. We understand that this new product is already providing insurance and has strong support from brokers. BIBA’s ‘Find a Broker Service’ can help business identify local brokers participating in the BIBA scheme and is accessible through BIBA's website, at: <a href="https://www.biba.org.uk/find-insurance/results/?insurance=908" target="_blank">https://www.biba.org.uk/find-insurance/results/?insurance=908</a></p><p> </p><p>The Government continues to work with commercial interests under the Property Level Resilience Roundtable to promote the uptake of measures that make properties resilient to flooding. These are measures that prevent water entering a property and speeding recovery when it does. One objective is to develop better standards and certification, enabling insurers to take greater account of resilience measures in the future.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The majority of local authority spending is financed by non-ringfenced income, which councils themselves decide how to spend. The Government has not made an assessment of the capacity of local authorities to respond to incidents of littering and fly-tipping. Local authorities have responsibility for tackling littering and fly-tipping and it is up to them to decide how best to do this and how to prioritise it against the provision of other local services.</p> more like this
