answer text <p>The response to HL13981 simply reflects the fact that the Hon Member for Pendle, Andrew Stephenson MP, has made strong representations to Ministers about the proposal to reinstate the Colne-Skipton rail link. In response the Secretary of State for Transport has visited Colne twice in the last 12 months in relation to this scheme and so hence he is personally aware of the Hon Member’s commitment to this scheme.</p><p> </p><p>This did not influence the remainder of that answer.</p> more like this

answer text <p>It is crucial that local authority members and mayors inspire confidence and have the trust of the electorate, and that is why I welcome the recent work of the Committee on Standards in Public Life on Local Government Ethical Standards. This concluded that there is a need for some strengthening of the standards and conduct system in local government and for greater safeguards in the delivery of the system.

answer text <p>The Cabinet Office issues guidance to all Government departments on the handling of correspondence from Members of Parliament, Members of the House of Lords, MEPs and Members of Devolved Administrations. The most recent edition was issued in March 2016 and is publicly available on Gov.uk.</p><p>All departments should set targets for replying to correspondence from MPs and Peers. These targets (which may be different to the targets set for other types of correspondence) will be published in the annual correspondence report coordinated by the Cabinet Office. Individual departments' targets for routine correspondence from MPs should be a maximum of 20 working days, and the Cabinet Office encourages departments to consider setting themselves more challenging targets. When calculating the target date for reply, the clock should start the day after the correspondence was received.</p> more like this
